PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

You'll probably be able to spot them on your own. I thought it was a very enjoyable, well-directed movie, even if some details are quite obviously Hollywoodized. It's certainly way better than "Crash".

Woh! She sounds great! The James Bond film montage was lame though. It should have been sequential so you could at least get a sense of each movie as they progressed.

Their award was the visual effects award (? or something like that ?) that had just been the subject of the presenters joking that they never got the respect they deserved. And then they curtailed their thank-yous.

I thought it was a continuation of the joke.

But you know that by not drooling over her singing and adoring her to the max, you've made yourself enemies of Barbara fans who will never forget the slight.

She did ok, memories was a apropos song for the occasion. Not the Streisand of old, but who is. Even Bassey had lost some vocal strength. Until she hit the final note she had not really exhibited her original strength. Still, that last note was amazing.

Yes. Yes I am.

This just reinforces the belief of most North Carolinians and octogenarians that Andy Griffith was unappreciated for his acting.

After the wonderful Ron Howard tributes right after Andy died, I can live through this omission.

I have a niece who was staying in New Orleans last spring, and she and a friend were hit on by Tarantino in one of the clubs there. He is a butt-ugly putzy kinda guy, and I have to say that isn't much to brag on. Interesting though.

If the best picture nominees are a look at the molestation coverups, a historical recreation of Stonewall, a Liberace biography, the life of Alan Turing, and a comedy about gay marriage, I will personally pay his airfare.

Now I do want to see that movie, though. Not because of that, but because the trailers were intriguing.

I guess that’s the other side of free speech. But to a 9YO? There should some allowance for a constitutionally protected free punch in the nose for that.

Tuning in for the last hour or so, seems like I missed most of the good stuff. Barbara, "The Way We Were," she still has it though not as much as she had it in her prime.

Mostly what I got was Hollywood in indulgent self-congratulations, which is to be expected. All the nominees would have been worthy winners, year of the writer, blah blah blah.

Bond themes back on top, nice to see, they kind of went downhill after "For Your Eyes Only."

Daniel Day-Lewis, I'd say it was really a close one, but I'll give him the nod for Best Acceptance Speech. Must have been crushing losing the opportunity to play Maggie Thatcher.

Poor Jennifer Lawrence, once again the dress steals top billing.

Best Picture, Argo? Let's see, two literary classics, one done as a musical and one done with magnificent effects, an American victory story, an American historical drama, a romantic comedy, a Tarantino fiction adventure, the Hushpuppy story, a French film, and ... an American victory story that also happens to allow Hollywood to be indulgent and self-congratulatory claiming also a Hollywood victory story. Should have seen it coming.

45. "RE: 2013 Academy Awards"
Bond themes back on top, nice to see, they kind of went downhill after "For Your Eyes Only."

I liked the last two John Barry themes, "A View to a Kill" (1985, Duran Duran) and "The Living Daylights" (1987, A-ha), but there wasn't another one I could stand until 2005's "You Know My Name".

38. "Inside the mind? of a voter."
I just picked up my Hollywood Reporter this morning and found that one ballot had been supervised by a member of their staff as an anonymous Academy caster filled it out. It was -- less than inspiring. 'Depressing' is optional, but completely understandable.

Here's the online version of the article.

Read it and weep.

Nate of electoral college prediction fame gets 4 out of 6 top trophies, a close fifth, off on the sixth, still better than the bookies on straight bets.

No vote count data.

I beat Nate in that I had the Ang Lee pick as well. Foolishly, I let myself get talked out of Christoph Waltz, my original choice, and I decided not to change back after he won the BAFTA -- though I should have known that a snoozefest like Tommy Lee Jones' performance in Lincoln wouldn't hold up in a competitive race. Hiss.

Christoph Waltz's win should have been foreseen because it provides two of those Oscar trivia coincidences that are unrelated to the merit of the award --

1) Now four consecutive Best Supporting Actor winners have had first names starting with "Chris": Christoph Waltz, Christopher Plummer the previous year, Christian Bale the year before that, and, yes, Christoph Waltz to start off the chain. (For a parallel, consider the four consecutive Best Supporting Actress winners from 1978 through 1981: Maggie Smith, Meryl Streep, Mary Steenburgen, and Maureen Stapleton -- notice anything?)

2) Also, Sally Field's largely expected Best Supporting Actress loss excommunicated her from the elite group of six actors who were nominated multiple times and won every time they were nominated (twice in each case). But now someone has replaced her in that elite group...Christoph Waltz. Had anyone else nominated in his category won, the balance would not have been maintained.

This one's for you, AyaK, in our mutual interest in the capability to make predictions based on fact and history. It's a quantitative science, so it lends itself to statistically-based models and data mining across multiple disciplines (baseball, cards, elections, economics, earthquakes, epidemics, population growth, global warming, etc.).

You might find this conversation from Edge.org interesting.

I'm in the midst of reading Silver's latest book, The Signal and the Noise: Why Most Predictions Fail – But Some Don't and I highly recommend it.

This song (is that Scarlett J singing??) really caught my ear during the brief playing it got during the show. The video they showed for the movie (Chasing Ice) looks spectacular.

Anyone see that movie?

Not me, and I now have a yen to see it too. S.J. does a nice job.

The Norah Jones song was bad. The song was insipid, and the orchestra dominated her vocals. Maybe it was the sound board engineering that was at fault. The song improved a little when she took the mike in her hand, but it still left me flat.

Too bad. I thought we were in for a treat with her spot.

It seems it is Scarlett, and she has a wonderful voice. And what a haunting and mesmerizing song.
