Oscars 2008: Liveblog En Rose

MZS: Has a woman ever won Best Director? I don't believe so.
odie: Nope.
odie: Coppola won Screenplay, when it was clearly a director's movie.
Sars: Fucking Kevin Costner. Biggest mistake they ever made.
odie: I thought she might be the first, even though I didn't like her movie.
Joe R: Way to gloss over Roman Polanski winning in absentia in '02.
odie: Here comes Marty!
MZS: This says to me that the expectation is for a PTA win.
Joe R: Why?
Sars: He has to present, doesn't he? Since he won last year?
odie: Yes.
Joe R: Why is PTA viewed as so much more of a genius than the Coens? I don't get it.
Sars: Coens win! Yay!
Joe R: Nice!
MZS: The Coens!
Joe R: The only downside is that Frances won't be able to lord her Oscar over Joel anymore.
odie: Ha ha. She couldn't do it before.
odie: He won for Fargo.
Sars: But they can put them in lewd poses.
Joe R: Not for Best Director, he didn't. I thought Ethan won for screenplay but not Joel?
["Note: Joel and Ethan Coen won Best Original Screenplay for Fargo. This was their first win for directing." -- Joe R]

odie: It's Den-ZELLLL!
MZS: What role did he shave his head for?
Sars: My secret boyfriend?
odie: The Hurricane. And Glory.
MZS: I meant right now.
Joe R: The Hurricane II: The Golden Age.
Sars: The Hurricane IN MY PANTS. (Sorry.)
Joe R: And the Best Picture of 2007 is...No Country For Old Men. Good choice, Academy.
Sars: Yaaaaaaaaaay! Happy ending.
MZS: No Country!
odie: YAY!
MZS: I would have been happy with There Will Be Blood. But I think No Country is an altogether better film.
MZS: Hannah, who's ten, is asking me which of the Best Picture nominees she's allowed to see. She sat through Sweeney Todd twice, so I'd say all of them.
odie: Hannah, avoid There Will Be Blood!
Sars: Don't make her sit through Blood. Child abuse.
odie: I'm with Sarah! I'm almost 40 and it was child abuse for me to sit through it!
MZS: Jon Stewart always looks so relieved when it's over.
odie: I'm relieved it's over too. But I overestimated time
["You know who didn't overestimate the running time? Wing Chun, who predicted the show would go off the air at 11:51. The show went off the air at 11:51. Dude!" -- Joe R]
Sars: I was off by one minute.
