Party Favors

Panic mode is setting in. So much to do... so little time in which to do it. I keep thinking some of my hunches that I didn't quite go with (like Swank losing) are going to happen. But I have to remind myself that that's typical day before psyche-outs. Everyone en masse usually SUDDENLY thinks anything is possible (like people thinking Crouching Tiger could beat Gladiator even though it was a Taiwanese entry. But it wouldn't make sense for M$B to be shut out and I don't see how it wins best picture without acting prizes (since it's not going to win much else) --However I do think it's possible that it loses pic & dir and ONLY wins acting.

I wanted to predict Clive Owen -feeling sudden heat for him in the air and having always felt that one of the two from Closer could take something home. But I keep thinking back to Kate Winslet at the SAG suddenly stopping the interviews on E! in order to profess her love for his work. Kate -freaking- Winslet who is a better actor than just about everyone idolizing someone else? So I keep thinking it has to be Freeman. But Clive. Clive. Clive. Why can't I let it go?

Don't stress; it's Freeman's year.

Yeah, it really does feel like it's Freeman's year. Owen will get his (and probably sooner rather and later we can hope). But if Owen does win I'll be elated! It'll be great.

And, yes, the only prizes I have M$B winning (in my predix) are Supporting Actor and Editing. I just have a feeling that they're going to reward Scorcese and his movie and that they do have SOME common sense and will realise that Hilary does not deserve 2 Best Actress oscars and will vote for someone else.

I am so happy Jorge Drexler! By far the biggest, best (and only?) surprise of the night.

I also loved it that Kaufman and Blanchett won.

Wow, how predictable this turned out to be. It really seemed like it was all up in the air, but no. Note to self: do not spend this much time and energy on the oscars next year... not worth it. So predictable. I really thoght Aviator would manage director or picture, but alas. The buzz was correct. I'm pissed that Marty lost. Nice to see Blanchett, Kaufman (yay!), and the Motorcycle Diaries song win. Also liked that Aviator swept the techs and won the most awards. But it was robbed for picture and director... and how embarrassing for Hilary Swank screaming above the music to thank her publicist... her speech was pretty good up until that. Still pissed that she won, though. ZZzzz... boring.

Lordy-lou, can you imagine Kate Winslet and Clive Owen doing a film together? They'll have to scrape the scorch marks off the screen.
