8:05: The fancy folks (Jessica Chastain FTW) are getting themselves seated, steadying themselves for the entrance of ol' Stewie himself. Watch this space as we prepare to snark through Hollywood's annual celebration of itself.

8:15: Are we the only ones hoping that one of the items in the Oscar mystery boxes on the red carpet is that severed horse head from The Godfather?

8:22: Smash producers being interviewed. Kristin Chenowerth lies through her teeth, saying, "I think it's in the right hands."

8:25: Five minutes to showtime. Renee Zellweger is so excited, her face almost moved.

TWoP 10: What We Want to See Happen at the Oscars

TWoP 10: What We Want to See Happen at the Oscars

It's been clear for a while now what's going to go down on Oscar night this year, at least in terms of the major categories. The Artist will win Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor; Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer will represent The Help for Actress and Supporting Actress, respectively; The Descendants will have to content itself with a Best Adapted Screenplay statue. With those winners -- most of which we're satisfied with if not entirely ecstatic about -- set in stone, here's what we hope to see happen Sunday night to keep the telecast interesting.

TWoP 10: Reasons We're Dreading The Oscars

TWoP 10: Reasons We're Dreading The Oscars

While we were naively optimistic about the Golden Globes, that's not the case with Sunday night's Oscar telecast. We're pretty much dreading it. The fact that the whole thing has been shrouded in secrecy with only drips and drabs trickling out has not done much to up our anticipation. Instead, it's filling us with feelings of horror and panic. Especially since what we have heard is pretty much a nightmare. So without further ado... the reasons we're not looking forward to the 81st Annual Academy Awards.

WTF? Wolvie To Host Oscars?!

WTF? Wolvie To Host Oscars?! I'm gonna make this brief because I feel like I've contributed quite enough bile to today's various blogs. But I'm real perplexed as to why the Oscars have elected to have Hugh Jackman host this year's telecast. They'd already made it clear that they were looking to cut down on the "funny" bits, and with this announcement, they've preeeetty much confirmed that this year's show is going to be even more boring than in years past. Everyone knows that the best parts of the Oscars are the red carpet fashions and the cheesy hosts' cheesy attempts at comedy. They've just done away with half the reason I watch. What if god forbid this year's bevy of starlets get themselves awesome stylists and nary a sartorial trainwreck shows itself on the pre-show? WTF am I gonna have to look forward to (making fun of)?

Oscars Postmortem

ddl.jpgIn case you're not so over the whole thing already that you're under it -- and Joe R and I have pretty much had it with the Academy by this point -- here's a quick rundown of notable coverage around the internet.

You can start right here on TWoP with the real-time blog of the telecast, featuring me, Joe R, Odie, and Matt Zoller Seitz.  We've also put together a Fametracker-style Galaxy Of Fame that you may care to enjoy.

 

Elsewhere, Joe R presents his alternative nominees; Green Cine Daily analyzes the victories (and offers a buttload of links to other critiques of the telecast, the winners, and What It All Means); A.O. Scott puts the Oscars in context; and you aren't only one wondering what the F was going on with some of those outfits (no more drunk stitch-and-bitches for you, Mrs. Day-Lewis) -- the Fug Girls have got you covered.
