Popcorn & Prejudice: A Movie Blog

Live-blogging the Oscars

And here we are . . . Things kick off with all the actors and actresses in the two lead categories, standing there. It’s a bit random, particularly the chaos that ensues when they head for their seats, but anything that allows a nice closeup of George Clooney is fine by me. Is anyone having more fun than Gabby Sidibe?

After a song by Neil Patrick Harris (he’s singing! he’s wearing sequins! wait, is this the Tonys?), Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin make a grand entrance from the ceiling. Note that Steve was buckled in and Alec wasn’t; what does that mean? Meryl Streep gets not one but TWO shout-outs, which makes sense because they all made a movie together (“It’s Complicated”). Lots of the nominees get greeted from the stage, including “that damn Helen Mirren” (“no, that Dame Helen Mirren”). Alec and Steve are funny, but a little strained. OK, “He’s so high” is funny. James Cameron looks unamused by the 3-d glasses gag. Now they’re making fun of “Avatar,” and not everyone in the audience seems with them. They’re definitely funny (“All right, who’s next?”), but this might be a long night.
