Velvetpark's Official 2011 Oscar's Viewing Party

Alright, kids. Start your moviebuff engines! On Sunday at 8/5p the 83rd Annual Academy Awards Show will kick off on ABC, and yours truly will be hosting a viewing party right here for all your snarky Oscars commentary needs.

Post your Oscar picks below before the show starts and I promise to write a dirty limerick in honor of s/he who gets the most right.

Meanwhile, did anyone actually manage to watch all 10 films nominated for Best Picture this year? I managed a respectable 6 for once, although I somehow missed both the ones with actual lesbian storylines/sex scenes. *headdesk*

Well, you weren't going to write a dirty limerick for yourself, were you? Smile

I can't believe it. I'm usually way far off. I didn't even try for any of the shorts or for one of the screenplays.

Don't know.  Don't have a tv here, only at work.  Will have to find the results online someplace and let you know.

Meanwhile the neighbour guys heisted me into watching a DVD of Dukes of Hazzard episodes.  I remember now why I used to change the channel as a kid....

I knew Inception was going to win the sound awards because I literally tried to sleep through it, after deciding it sucked, and every few minutes I kept getting jolted awake by the whoosh of the sound.  Really annoying at the time...

Minnie! Don't bag on Inception! It's like the Obi Wan for screenwriters hoping to sell spec scripts in the next few years, (i.e. our only hope).

Inception is proof that if

Inception is proof that if you write a script that will make the money folks in Hollywood feel like they're clever because it's so unfuckingbelievably complex that they don't understand it then you can get it made.
