Academy Awards 2010: The Liveblog
9:51 - It's OK to act like you didn't know you'd win if you really didn't know. We feel for this guy.
9:52 - We don't know what's more embarrassing: Making Queen Latifah get all dressed up just to introduce this random Lauren Bacall dinner party clip package, or making her acknowledge that Bringing Down the House happened.
9:59 - Congratulations, Mo'Nique. Just because it was expected doesn't mean it wasn't deserved. And remember: she's also winning for being overlooked for her work in Beerfest.
10:00 - For some reason, Colin Firth always sounds like a Dickens character to me. Even his name sounds Dickensian. "What larks, Colin Firth! What larks!"
10:06 - "James Cameron, this Oscar sees you." The latest entry in the list of worst Art Designer acceptance speeches of all time.
10:09 - When a Costume Designer wins her third Oscar, is it still called a hat trick?
10:12 - "Hello, I'm Charlize Theron, and I was once in a movie as depressing as Precious."
10:18 - Decent Paranormal Activity parody by Steve and Alec. Also, that shambling Kristen Stewart homunculus is so realistic! (Cough.)
10:21 - That's two clips tonight that showcase a very young Alec Baldwin!
10:23 - Hollywood Rule #1: When you need a narrator, Morgan Freeman always has right of first refusal.
10:25 - Hurt Locker gets Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing? That's three for them. They're building momentum!
10:28 - And also, the nerd Oscars happened. Moving on!
10:36 - "Mishigas"? Who knew Sandy Bullock was down with the old country Yiddish. Probably learned it from George Lopez.
10:37 - Oh no, the death montage. As we all know, everyone died this year. Get ready to cry.
10:38 - They should've kept going with the instrumental "Unchained Melody" instead.
