"And the Oscar goes to...'Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus'!"
It's Oscar time! I usually don't go for awards shows, but I always kinda dig the Annual Hollywood Circle Jerk. This year I'm expecting it to be more entertaining than usual since Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin are co-hosting (and given material by some "30 Rock" writers). So why don't we have a good, old fashioned live blog/chat? Post your thoughts, feelings, and fears about the ceremony, winners, losers, and snubs in the comments section.
Now, as much as I dig the Big Show, I have zero interest in gowns, red carpets, and Ryan Seacrests. So in the meantime, I'm going to watch Dumb and Dumber on TBS, try my hand at some newly-downloaded Rock Band Network tracks (Flogging Molly! Stroke 9!), and consume a bacon-wrapped filet mignon. And then pour myself a tumbler of McClelland's Islay in time for kick off.
I know the big question that's on everyone's minds is Who is Micah wearing? Well, my pajama pants are by Nautica, my Ohio State t-shirt is by Nike, and my slippers are by Dearfoams. I feel like the belle of the ball!
During the lulls in conversation here (naw, that'll NEVER happen!), I'll be checking out the live blogs/Tweets by Doug Benson, the A.V. Club, and whoever else interesting and funny that I stumble upon. Know any good ones?
Let the bitchfest commence!

The star power! Clooney looks drunk.
Uh, what was the point of that opening?
Good mono-, er, duologue. Jokes about Hitler memorabilia and tag-teaming Meryl Streep never get old.
I prefer Funny Ryan Reynolds to Serious Ryan Reynolds.
May have to sit out for a bit. I feel a doozy of a two-zy coming on.
In a shocking upset, Up won the Best Pixar Movie category.
I haven't seen The Hurt Locker, but I was really pulling for Inglourious Basterds.
I miss John Hughes, specifically his '80s movies and Christmas Vacation.
I miss KPMD. :(
Pssst. Some of those films in the horror movie montage weren't horror movies.
Edgar Winter is a sound editor!
Not looking good for Avatar. And that makes me smile.
I want Elizabeth Banks. NOW!
Oscar exec #1: "Let's nix the Best Song performances, but show a interpretive dance sequence using all of the Best Score nominees."
Oscar exec #2: "Brilliant!"
Aw, man. They brought back the 5 past winners presenting the current Best Actor/Actress award. That sucked last year. Sucks this year.
Damn. Forrest Whitaker has dropped some el-beez. That or his tuxedo is very slimming.
I just realized that I have yet to make the obligatory Scott Thompson reference and label the Oscars as "The Gay Superbowl". So there you go.
I'm so proud to witness this historic moment: the first MILF ever to win Best Director.
I still have yet to see Slumdog Millionaire, so what are the prospects of me seeing The Hurt Locker anytime soon?
But, hey, a loss for Avatar in a non-technical category is definitely a win for humanity.
Uh, Doug Benson wasn't tweeting. He was sitting at Mac's with a PBR in hand.
i have conflicting emotions about HL. the hero of the movie is a total war junkie who risks everything and everyone to get his fixx.
