  • missy: watchin’ the oscars?
  • michele: yep
  • michele: and grading papers I can not read
  • missy: me, too. until i get impatient/bored/annoyed.
  • michele: already sort of am
  • michele: heh
  • missy: haha. me, too.
  • michele: we just saw Monster
  • missy: i haven’t seen it yet.
    8:25PM
  • michele: I had to see ONE movie in the Oscar line up
  • michele: heh
  • missy: haha
  • missy: you saw Mystic River & Lost in Translation! That’s pretty good.
  • missy: Which is about all I’ve seen, save for Lord of the Rings
  • michele: oh!! i forgot about those
  • michele: I should fill out this sheet Todd sent
  • michele: which we obviously bailed on
  • michele: ah well
  • missy: yeah. you could always call him during the program.
  • michele: claiming to have won?
  • michele: that’s not a bad idea!
  • missy: haha
  • michele: I used to LOVE this time. Oscar Time.
  • michele: now I just sort of get annoyed
  • michele: too cynical for my own good
  • michele: or something
  • missy: i know! The banter drives me bonkers. usually I just want a glimpse at the dresses, and I’m done.
  • michele: I am assuming I have changed and not them
  • michele: yep
  • michele: I do wish to see Theron (sp?)
  • michele: I was and still am shocked
  • michele: at how ugly she allowed them to make her
  • missy: The only time I wished I would have watched the whole thing was when Soderbergh won for best director, and apparently gave the speech of the night.
  • michele: She put on like 50 pounds
  • missy: Yeah, I’ve seen clips.
  • michele: yeah. I missed that too
  • missy: That’s the thing; the speeches typically make me want to slap the person giving them.
  • michele: absolutely
    8:30PM
  • michele: this guy
  • michele: he is hitting on EVERYONE
  • michele: I want to slap him
  • michele: and that kid
  • michele: that little short turd
  • michele: thank goodness they found him for acting
  • missy: Somewhere I read that the jewelry women wear usually come accompanied by bodyguard, who grab the women whenever the lights go down.
  • michele: he has serial killer eyes
  • missy: haha
  • michele: ha ha ha
  • michele: you’re kidding me
  • michele: no shit
  • missy: No! I htink I read it in some lame women’s mag.
  • michele: I just asked Toby if he could make our chat go live
  • michele: a constant feed
  • michele: but he said it would take him too much time. I thought that would be funny
  • michele: heh
  • michele: next year
  • missy: I know! When I was taking out magazines to the mag bin in the recycling room, I found a glamour sitting there and helped myself to it.
  • michele: Elija Wood be a serial killer
  • michele: ha ha hahahhahah
  • missy: aw, this is sweet. every time I see interviews w/ this girl, all she can talk about is Johnny Depp.
  • michele: is he the speaker tonight?
  • michele: oh dear
  • missy: Even Sean Connery is annoying.
    8:35
  • michele: is he the announcer?!
  • michele: no way
  • michele: ok
  • michele: i need more booze or something
  • missy: these montages always annoy me, too. except the year that Errol Morris did interviews will all sorts of people, famous & not.
  • michele: they’re the geletin of the Oscars
  • missy: haha
  • michele: gelatin? sp?
  • michele: how do you spell that crap?
  • michele: the latter
  • missy: hmm. i think the latter, yes.
  • missy: shit, doesn’t that joke about how long the program lasts ever get old?
  • michele: ha ha ha ha
  • missy: please, retire it.
  • michele: they should start using the joke as being used too long
  • michele: who writes this shit?
  • missy: Yes!
  • missy: Did you see Diane Keaton? She looks, I swear, exactly like herself as Annie Hall.
  • michele: No! amazing
  • michele: good for her and her genes
  • michele: I hope to one day look good and old
  • michele: or something.
  • missy: which means that joke has gotten old as well. please, Diane.
  • missy: True,
  • michele: wait!
  • michele: I think I missed your point
  • missy: Sorry, I didn’t have one. Only that that look meant something 30 years ago, but no longer.
  • michele: Apparently I missed the best joke just now
  • missy: probably not.
  • michele: the one making fun of Michael Moore
  • michele: according to Toby
    8:40
  • michele: I was beer getting
  • missy: i missed it.
  • michele: ah well
  • michele: I really rather like A Jolie
  • missy: yeah?
  • michele: I find her a) easy on the eyes and b) weird enough
  • missy: haha
  • michele: what songs are nominated? I should fill out this form
  • michele: I’ll do that now
  • missy: A couple from Cold Mountain. One from LOTR. Not sure what else.
  • missy: I still haven’t seen THE LAST TEMPTATION OF MEL GIBSON.
  • michele: me neither
  • missy: Or, as Jim Treacher puts it, LETHAL WEAPON 5: CHRIST ALMIGHTY
  • michele: Sold out tonight
  • michele: ha hahahhahahahhahahhahaha
  • michele: DUDE
  • michele: that is FUNNY!
  • michele: I am still laughing
  • missy: no shit.
  • michele: Dude
  • michele: toby’s dying
  • missy: On Cinemasters, people are always playing with the names of films, but TReacher wins, hands down, for all time.
  • michele: Does Danny Glover play Judas?
  • michele: ha ha ha (from Toby)
  • missy: Fuck, I wish.
  • michele: he wanted to know
  • michele: freak
    8:45
  • missy: You should save this IM session and post it.
  • michele: I have already decided to
  • missy: Haha. Excellent.
  • michele: It’s going on my site
  • michele: as my “Commentary”
  • missy: Now I have to be ultra witty.
  • michele: ha ha hahahah
  • missy: And you do too!
  • michele: (I will edit this part out)
  • michele: hahahahha
  • missy: No!
  • michele: I’m always witty
  • michele: no really
  • missy: True.
  • michele: dude
  • michele: that’s not true
  • michele: I sound like an ass
  • missy: Sometimes ass=witty.
  • michele: I do wish I could read the writing on my student’s papers
  • michele: btw
  • missy: Handwritten?
  • michele: how long would you take in returning papers?
  • michele: Yeah, hand-written
  • missy: Hmm. A week?
  • michele: k
  • michele: tomorrow it’ll be a week
  • missy: What the christ? Don’t people type anymore?
  • michele: See, I think that’s just it
  • michele: they DO type
  • michele: hence, penmanship
  • michele: down the fuckin hill
  • michele: or something
  • missy: (Idle banter while Billy Crysal sings nonsense)
  • missy: got it.
  • michele: Hey, at least it’s not Whoopie
  • missy: Good point.
  • michele: “I’m a Big Loser.”
  • michele: yes, yes Whoop
  • missy: No, you’re not, Whoopie.
  • michele: I hate those ads
  • michele: HATE THEM
  • missy: Except, you are, in quite another sense of the word.
  • missy: Yes.
  • michele: You don’t happen to know
  • missy: I’d like to see Sofia win something, just to hear her modest speech. Of course she is wearing Marc Jacobs (and looks fantastic). I don’t think she ever wears any other designer. I hope she’s wearing flats, too.
  • michele: by way of
    your geek friends
  • michele: (Yes, Toby does a swell
  • missy: yes?
  • michele: I haven’t seen her yet
  • michele: is her hubby there?
  • michele: We were trying to figure out
  • missy: No, they’re divorced!
  • michele: WHAT?!!!
    8:50
  • missy: They split shortly after her movie came out.
  • michele: Holy crap
  • michele: I had no idea
  • michele: interesting swan song or something
  • missy: In fact, Giovanni Ribisi’s character is loosely based on him (as is Scarlett’s character on her)
  • michele: I thought so
  • michele: interesting
  • missy: And, apparently, that blond chick in the film is based on Cameron Diaz.
  • michele: So, what I was going to ask was if you knew if or what they did to Theron’s face for that movie Monster
  • michele: Cameron Diaz? Wow
  • missy: I saw her on Inside the Actor’s Studio. I think there was some latex involved, as well as fake teeth.
  • michele: What is little ms. T Mobil wearing?
  • missy: And brown contacts.
  • missy: She always looks hot.
  • michele: yes
  • michele: I would actually do her.
  • michele: if I weren’t married
  • missy: haha
  • michele: I think My mom would too
  • missy: My perdiction for this category: Tim Robbins, sadly.
  • missy: perdiction?
  • michele: oh shit
  • michele: I have to fill that out
  • michele: what are we on?
  • missy: Supporting Actor
  • michele: hrm tough one
  • michele: Toby did too
  • missy: He’s a handsome man, Djimon Howeveritsspelled

  • michele: Toby won
    8:55
  • missy: I think I picked Sean Penn as well, but I can’t remember.
  • missy: I should look at my picks,
  • michele: You think he’d get it?
  • michele: given his tie with communism and all? (I kid, of course)
  • missy: Well, that’s the goal. To win, not pick what I would pick.
  • missy: Haha.
  • michele: is he even there?
  • missy: I don’t know!
  • missy: I don’t think so.
  • michele: He hates them, I think
  • michele: I recall
    9:00
  • michele: I finished my picks. I haven’t seen hardly any
  • missy: If this is Supp. Actress, I picked Renee. Who, by the way, has already lost most of her weight that we saw at the Globes, when she was huge.
  • missy: (For Bridget, Part Deux)
  • michele: ha
  • michele: is she still with J Black?
  • michele: ha
  • michele: no
  • michele: Jack White
  • michele: whatever Jack

  • michele: but maybe not super bright
  • michele: jury is still out about the brain-goods
  • missy: Yes.
  • michele: I wonder why she didn’t bring her Cuban Baby
  • missy: Cambodian.
  • michele: ha
  • michele: right
  • missy: We are nto allowed trade with Cuba!
  • michele: (my jury is still out as well)
  • michele: ha ha hahhahahahhaha
  • michele: RIGHT!
  • michele: no Cuban babies into America!
  • michele: crap
  • michele: what was that for?
  • missy: I wonder if I got this category.
  • missy: Set design.
    9:05
  • missy: I htink.
  • michele: I don’t see it on here
  • michele: hmmm
  • michele: Art Direction?
  • missy: That’s it.
  • missy: I think I lost.
  • missy: I voted for Girl With the Pearl Earring for one of these categories.
  • michele: we both guessed that
  • missy: Balls.
  • michele: No, pearl earings. ;]
  • missy: Not that I saw “Girl” or anything, but I hear it’s gorgeous.
  • michele: yeah? I haven’t heard anything at all
  • missy: I think that’ s about it: pretty to look at.
  • michele: Why is he wearing sunglasses?
  • michele: nm
  • michele: cute. I laughed.
  • missy: I wasn’t paying attention.
  • missy: Per usual.
  • michele: I think I need a snack or something
    9:10
  • missy: I’m bored.
  • michele: haha
  • michele: already. awesome
  • michele: anything else on?
  • missy: I know! 39 minutes in.
  • missy: I don’t know. Stuff has already started. I know TCM was showing great movies all day, and I watched none of them.
  • michele: I did almost nothing today, it seems
    9:15
  • michele: CSI On? or Law and Order.
  • michele: It’s always on.
  • missy: Same. Went to class, did laundry. Talked ot Josh, who got to New York very quickly (drove nearly straight through).
  • missy: I was smart & picked LOTR for costumes. Why, Pearl Earring, why? LOTR will sweep all of its technical awards, I know this now.
  • michele: holy shit
  • michele: he’s there already?
  • michele: good for him. damn
  • michele: yeah
  • missy: Yeah, he called me from his back yard.
  • michele: haha
  • michele: is he freaked? or really excited?
  • michele: he starts tomorrow?
  • missy: Excited!
  • missy: Wednesday.
  • michele: he moved all his shit
  • michele: that quickly?
  • michele: damn
  • missy: Actually, he was tired. Probably sleeping right now.
  • missy: He packed all week, had his friends help load in the truck yesterdya morning.
  • michele: (so sorry, what was this category?)
  • michele: I suck
  • michele: I bet he’s sleeping
  • missy: Costumes
  • michele: I would be so excited about this
  • michele: NYC rules
  • missy: It does.
  • michele: I sound like a dork. heh
  • missy: No you don’t.
  • michele: good.
  • missy: haha, this is funny.
  • michele: yes it is
  • michele: i was just thinking that
    9:20
  • missy: Good job, Billy.
  • michele: Nick Cage is ALWAYS
  • michele: acting
  • michele: always
  • michele: i loved him in Raising Arizona
  • missy: Why didn’t he introduce Lost in Translation? He’s Sofia’s cousin!
  • michele: but he lost me sometime after Honeymoon in Vegas
  • michele: (which was still good, but you know)
  • michele: Wild at heart also wonderful
  • michele: Shutting up about his career now
  • michele: We both chose Marcia for this one
  • michele: (Toby and I)
  • missy: I picked Renee. Didn’t see (nor did I care to see) Pieces of April, but I like Patricia Clarkson.
  • missy: Marcia looks awful. Like Elizabeth Taylor once she gained weight.
  • michele: She does look bloated. Someone fed the Diane Weist diet
  • missy: haha
  • michele: damn girl, you go!
  • michele: fed her, rather
    9:25
  • missy: I do like Renee’s dress.
  • michele: yes, she looks lovely
  • michele: It’s funny how much I think of MadTV or SNL when I watch these shows
  • michele: nice dress
  • michele: who makes it?
  • missy: That’s because they’re easily ridiculed.
  • missy: Renee’s dress?
  • michele: yep
  • missy: Didn’t catch it. Ler me guess
  • missy: let, that is
  • michele: Oh! did you say you saw the Lar Von Trier movie?
  • michele: With Kidman?
  • michele: she’s so durn purty
  • michele: btw
  • missy: I haven&#82

    17;t seen it, no.

  • missy: And re: the dress, I have no idea, but I’ll guess Dior.
  • michele: It’s lovely. Good guess!
  • missy: I’m going to find out.
    9:30
  • michele: These montages make me nuts
  • missy: I can’t find who made her dress, but Marcia Gay Harden is 8 months pregnant.
  • michele: ah
  • michele: she is absolutely forgiven
  • michele: (man this ad rules)
  • michele: btw
  • missy: which one?
  • michele: Anit Drug

  • missy: (actually, I looked htem up on IMD
  • missy: fuck. i almost picked TWO SOLDIERS!
  • michele: hahahha
  • michele: I am looking
  • michele: i don’t know what I picked
  • michele: I picked Squash
  • michele: For obvious reasons
  • missy: Because of your love for the game?
  • michele: ha
  • michele: a BIG booming laugh over here
  • michele: so funny
  • michele: To be frank
  • michele: i hadn’t even thought about the game
  • michele: i just liked thinking of the verb
  • michele: maybe it’s a movie about bugs
  • michele: or something
  • missy: HARVIE KRUMPET! C’mon!
  • missy: crosses fingers
  • michele: Gone Nutty over here
  • michele: Toby picked Nibbles
  • michele: again, for obvious reasons
  • missy: I had no idea which to pick without seeing any clip
    9:40
  • missy: YES!!!!!!
  • michele: you rule!!!
  • missy: I forget what my criteria was for picking that one. Maybe there was a postive review on IMDB.
  • michele: cheater
  • michele: it should all be based on the name
  • missy: Nope, that’s why: Geoffrey Rush was hte voice.
  • michele: Liv T
  • missy: Bad hair.
  • michele: she’s cute, but she comes off as being so girly
  • missy: She looks like…
  • michele: you know she’s a dirty dirty ho
  • missy: fuck
  • missy: I can’t remember. Dame Edna?

  • michele: she’s dirty, that one
  • missy: Haha

  • missy: (both from Cold Mount)
  • michele: see that dress she’s wearing?
  • michele: girls with boobs, can not wear that dress
  • missy: I think she was on the O Brother soundtrack.
  • missy: you;re right, and for a singer, she has bad posture.
  • michele: I think she did something for that movie where claire d was in prison
  • michele: in thailand
  • michele: but i might be wrong
  • missy: “WE DIDN’T DO IT!”
  • michele: H AHHAHAHAH
  • missy: wasn’t that the money quote from that film? didn’t we watch it together?
  • michele: Toby wants to know if you like this song
  • michele: he says he knows you do
    9:45
  • michele: I did watch it I did
  • missy: i have no opinion.
  • missy: Liv is Dame Edna.
  • michele: who is that?

  • michele: I think she won

  • michele: when will this stop?
  • michele: Does anyone ever wear sleeves at the Oscars?
  • missy: Rarely.
  • michele: I have noticed this
  • michele: Annie Lennox. If she were an animal, she’d be a llama
    9:50
  • michele: or maybe one of those creatures from the Dark Crystal.
    9:55
  • missy: So in a different set of polls on Cinemasters, where we actually pick winners we like from nominations we think are worthy, Josh and I disagreed on nearly every catefory, save for Editing and Best Ensemble Performance.
  • missy: Oh, and best score (Sonic Youth for the film demonlover)
  • michele: no shit! I had no idea they did that soundtrack
  • michele: I haven’t seen it
    10:00
  • missy: yeah. It’s a weird film.
  • missy: Connie Neilson is hot. (She was in GLADIATOR)

  • michele: where is she?
  • missy: what category was this?

  • missy: visual efects?
  • missy: effects, even?

  • michele: he’s reminding me of him, righ tnow
  • michele: dunno why

  • michele: Toby just shaved his head
  • missy: honorary award.

  • missy: haha
  • michele: woah
  • michele: look at the tugboat
  • michele: (nm)
  • missy: I hate the way she talks, as if her inflection will make it such that we will exactly agree with her
  • missy: and we will be touched in the heart!
  • michele: She perpetuates a low standard
  • michele: she feeds off the weak
  • missy: That clip was exactly why Kevin Bacon was my favorite part of hte film.
  • michele: i really do dislike her
  • michele: ha ha ha
  • missy: And why Eastwood made some very good choices.
  • michele: yeah, he rules

  • missy: Fog of War. Pretty much everyone else picked Capturing the Friedmans.
  • missy: So that could be my comeback….or my downfall
  • missy: I picked it because it was good and because it had a wide release
  • missy: And it’s Errol Morris, whom pretty much everyone knows of.
  • missy: YES!!!!
  • michele: YAY!!!
  • missy: Haha.
  • missy: A little immodest of Errol. But funny.
  • michele: (hello baby, johnny depp)
  • missy: I expect the music to cut in at any time
  • michele: yep
  • michele: wow
  • michele: he was at least decent
  • michele: M. Moore, on the other hand, was not
  • missy: Right.
    10:50

  • michele: she was really really very good
  • michele: heh
  • michele: I have a huge amount of respect for a woman who will MAKE herself uglier
  • michele: for a film
  • michele: for an actress, rather
  • michele: especially since she’s not a big star yet or anything, you know?
  • michele: amazing gal
  • michele: your film is on :]
  • missy: Well, you hear about “bravery” a lot when it comes to actresses…usually that means spending the majority of the movie naked.
  • missy: I suppose this was a brave role.
  • michele: yep, or ugly
  • michele: actually
  • michele: you might know
  • missy: (Nicole Kidman immodestly speaks of her own bravery, I think)
  • michele: Toby had heard years ago or a year ago
  • michele: that this was the first nude role for Ricci
  • michele: and there was no nudity
  • missy: Yeah? I didn’t know she was naked.
  • michele: for Ricci
  • michele: do you knwo if it was cut?
  • michele: or if Toby is crazy?
  • missy: I have no idea.
  • michele: k
  • michele: he’s nuts. :]
  • michele: wishful thinking
  • michele: heh
  • michele: (on his part)
  • missy: You know what’s funny? People clapping or nto clapping during the deaths montages.
  • missy: You can tell whom no one has heard of, or cares for.
    10:55
  • michele: hahahhahah
  • missy: Shit, is it almost 11pm already?
  • michele: I know. how did that happen?
  • michele:
  • missy: there’s still 11 more awards to go

  • missy: I voted for FINDING NEMO for best scrore. I’m not sure what I was thinking.
  • michele: hahhaha
  • michele: Toby picked Big Fish
  • michele: I picked LOTR
  • missy: I was trying to figure out where I could win/lose this contest, and I think I’ve just found it.
    11:00
  • missy: hahaha: This just came in on CM. “Where’s the audience shot when you need it? Who was clapping for Leni Riefenstal?” (She was Hitler’s propaganda filmmaker)
  • michele: hahahah
  • missy: You win score! Finding Nemo. I must have misclicked.
  • m

    ichele: was she REALLY?!

  • michele: what was Leni Affiliated with this time?

  • michele: ha
  • michele: who came up with that?
  • michele: so funny
  • missy: I forget. I saw it on Cinemasters.
  • michele: Hermie Lee Curtis
  • missy: Hah!
  • michele: (that was shitty. I like her)
  • michele: I also have a fondness for Herms
  • michele: is she married to C Guest?
  • missy: Apparently.
  • missy: I like her. I liked Freaky Friday.
  • michele: Finally, the first song on an Oscar show I will enjoy
  • missy: Ooh, this hsould be good.
  • missy: It’s too bad that the song sung by Renee & Ewan McGregor at the end of Down with Love wasn’t nominated. I’d love to see them perform it. (maybe. depending on how well they perform live.)
  • michele: oh, i totally forgot about that
  • michele: that would have been great
  • missy: (I love that these guys are in costume)
  • michele: of course
  • michele: tho
  • michele: I was just tellling TJ
  • michele: that this movie crossed over
    11:10
  • michele: into not funny laughter, but uncomfortable laughter
  • missy: really? i didn’t see it.
  • michele: it was almost TOO real
  • michele: I can’t explain that
  • michele: but it was too real
  • michele: so real it wasn’t as funny
  • michele: or something
  • michele: Is she married to C Guest?
  • michele: we need to know

  • michele: and I never knew that somehow
  • missy: did you lose a bet?
  • michele: hahah
  • michele: nope
  • michele: oh
  • missy: okay
  • michele: this ad thing
  • michele: on now
  • michele: have you noticed that both of these folks
  • michele: Verizon and Comcast
  • michele: are doing the EXACT same ad?
  • michele: i was discussing this with TJ
  • missy: really?
  • michele: and we decided it was brilliant
  • michele: on whoever went last
  • michele: it totally cancelled out
  • michele: the first ad
  • missy: hah
  • michele: now we don’t know who is saying or reporting what
  • michele: now if only we can find out who went last :]
  • michele: if it’s Verizon, I will still hate them
  • michele: but still
  • michele: funny
  • michele: this is funny
  • missy: now this is comedy I can get behind on the Oscars
  • michele: ha
  • michele: exactly
  • michele: Will Farrel should approve all comedy

  • michele: holy crap
  • missy: Balls. I lost again.
  • michele: this is my deep thought for the night. ready?
  • missy: yep
  • michele: I like Jack Black better than Jack White
  • missy: hahah
  • missy: hahahahahahha
  • michele: I do. Much better
  • michele: I really need to eat more than just nuts tonight.
  • missy: hahaha
  • michele: I have had almonds
  • michele: I want salt

  • michele: damn vegan roomate
  • michele: nothing to snack on
  • missy: deep fried cheese! yum

  • missy: jesus. still 8 awards to go
  • michele: I am blown away
  • michele: she is So Cute!
  • michele: Shocking
  • michele: so fresh on our minds
  • missy: very 30’s film starlet looking
  • michele: we’re amazed
  • missy: I voted for Barbarian Invasions. It iwll win.
  • michele: I am looking…
    11:25
  • michele: I picked C Rep
  • michele: damn
  • michele: you rule
  • missy: well, I saw none of them, surprisingly (considering how many foreign films i see….though the rules are funny when it comes ot releases of foreign films..dates and whatnot).
  • missy: But my aunt MaryAnne saw it and loved it.
  • missy: heh.
  • michele: haha
  • michele: awesome
  • michele: MaryAnne knows stuff about things
  • missy: I guess so.
  • michele: Uma’s dress?
  • michele: I do not like
  • missy: hmmm.
  • missy: strange dress.
  • michele: she looks like she stepped out of the It’s a Small World rid in Disney
  • missy: yes.
  • missy: but she is so pretty!
  • michele: ride, even
  • missy: otherwise, that is
  • michele: yes, yes she is
  • michele: she is forgiven

  • missy: I win again!
  • michele: damn!
  • michele: you ROCK
  • michele: i suck
  • michele: toby does too
  • michele: but he’s cute with his shoven head and all.
  • missy: I can’t believe I picked M&C for this category. Good job, Missy.
  • michele: (shoven?)
  • michele: Indeed
  • michele: :ats her back::
  • missy: hahahaha
  • michele: woah
  • missy: Unfortunately, so did everyone else who matters in my poll.
  • michele: hahah
  • missy: They filmed on the water, so I imagine it was pretty difficult. LOTR was all special effects.
  • michele: I’m telling you
  • michele: wait
  • michele: oh
  • michele: nm
  • michele: hahaha
  • michele: I was thinking Elija Wood and Toby were the same person again
  • michele: I hate that
  • missy: It is impossible for me to win, but I am tied in second place.
  • michele: because one is a weird troll
  • missy: haha
    11:30
  • michele: and the other one is rather cute
  • michele: also, he sports a hot name
  • michele: plus
  • michele: he’s spider man
  • michele: why is it impossible for you to win?
  • missy: because of the remaining categories, the guy in first has the same picks as me.
  • michele: (given the amount of wine I have had, I am now forgiven from spelling errors. I am a spelling diplomat.)
  • missy: (I cannot type.)
  • missy: (Ever.)
  • michele: (what do the parentheses mean?)
  • michele: (don’t have to answer that)
  • michele: oh
  • michele: Sofia
  • missy: “Kill the wabbit!”
  • michele: hahah
  • michele: ummm
  • missy: (parentheses mean an aside. at leats in my world they do.)
  • michele: what?
  • michele: (mine as well)
  • missy: “KIll the wabbit” ! It’s from Bugs Bunny.
  • michele: hahhaha
  • missy: The music they were playing for Francis & Sofia.
  • michele: oh!!
  • michele: sloooooooowwww
  • missy: Okay, I picked Mystic River.
  • missy: Damn.

  • michele: shake head some more
  • missy: I have been knocked down to thrid place.
  • michele: clap
  • michele: oh dear
  • michele:
  • michele: what do you win?
  • michele: or
  • michele: what does one win?
  • missy: Nothing. Bragging rights.
  • michele: even better
  • missy: But out of 24 people, still not bad.
  • michele: Beard.
  • michele: yes, true
  • michele: and you’re girl
  • michele: :]
  • michele: Toby (my toby)
  • michele: tried to grow a beard
  • michele: it didn’t work
  • missy: Really?
  • michele: nope
  • michele: he can’t grow enough
  • michele: it doesn’t fill in
  • missy: Poor guy.
  • michele: there are bald patches
  • michele: heh
  • missy: I picked Sofia for this.
  • michele: WOOOOOOO!!!!
  • missy: Yay Sofia! Not surprising, but still a good thing.
  • missy: I love her dress.
  • michele: wow
  • michele: good for her
  • missy: Wow. Good speech.
  • missy: She thanked some awesome filmmakers.
    11:40
  • michele: I wonder what Spike is thinking now?
  • michele: heh
  • michele: (shallow me)
  • missy: Good breeding in that Coppola family.
  • michele: I bought the new Yoga Journal today
  • michele: there was a lot on the place you’re going
  • michele: seems to be everywhere
  • michele: can’t wait to hear how it goes
  • missy: cool.
  • michele: Toby asked
  • missy: In just a couple of week!
  • missy: +s
  • michele: who was Bill Murray’s character in Lost IN Translation?
  • michele: do you know?
  • michele: (excited for you)
    11:45
  • missy: you mean in real life?
  • missy: I suspect he was fictitious, but who knows.
  • michele: yeah, based on?
  • michele: that’s what I suspected
  • missy: PLease tell me Tom isn’t introducing COld Mountain
  • michele: cool
  • missy: oh. best director.
  • michele: another person I’m not fond of
  • missy: (I was htinking that would be a cruel joke, since Nicole stars.)
  • michele: oh1
  • missy: I have a problem with typing ‘t’s and ‘h’s in the correct order.
  • michele: oh!, rather
  • michele: hahahahh
  • michele: s’ok
  • michele: I got that
  • michele: not proud of it, though
  • missy: Jesus. Wiht the exception of Cinematography, I think LOTR has won every nomination it has.
  • michele: (sorry, I still just don’t get the LOTR stuff)
  • michele: (we tried twice now)
  • michele: (still can’t get into it)
  • michele: :/
  • missy: I think you have to see it in the theater, where you have little choice in the matter (unless you walk out)
  • michele: ha
  • missy: PLus it’s a different environment, seeing it in the dark on a big screen with an audience.
  • michele: Toby is nodding
  • missy: That said,
  • michele: prolly right
  • michele: but does that make it best film?
  • missy: I am not a fan of the films, outside of their technical wonderment.
  • michele: I dunno about that, you know?
  • missy: I wonder if Charlize will kiss Adrian
  • missy: when she wins
  • michele: hahahha
  • michele: ::crossing fingers::
  • missy: I know! hopes
    11:50
  • michele: She better win
  • missy: You know, there’s a documentary out about the character Charlize plays. AILEEN, it’s called.

  • missy: haha
  • missy: Wait for Sean Penn. He will be next.
  • michele: maybe
  • michele: I will fall over
  • missy: Or, Johnny Depp?
  • missy: I think she should have given part of her speech in Afrikaans
    11:55
  • michele: hahaha
  • missy: at least to her mom. ON Actors Studio, she said that she & her mom still speak it to each other.
  • michele: I didn’t know she was from there
  • michele: I’m confused
  • michele: what don’t I know?
  • missy: YOu don’t know mindless trivia, and that’s okay.
  • missy: You need to watch more James Lipton!
  • michele: what?!
  • michele: GIVE ME THE GOODS!!
  • missy: (INside the Actors Studio)
  • michele: speaking of which
  • michele: (we were supposed to stage that, remember?)
  • missy: I know!
  • missy: JUst for the five questions. We have to be FUNNY!

    12:00AM
  • michele: yep
  • missy: nicole’s dress is nice. much better than that disaster at the Globes.
  • michele: I don’t remember that
  • missy: but i don’t like how she’s lightened her hair so much. she looks like a ghost.
  • michele: But tonight she looks lovely
  • michele: heh
  • michele: I’m an easy fan :]
  • michele: he won’t win
  • michele: I worry for everyone’s safety if Sean Penn doesnt’ win
  • michele: I bet his wife is out of town tonight
  • michele: hahaha
  • missy: here is nicole at the globes (and mind you, it gives new meaning to “Golden Globes”):

  • michele: But i would still kiss his short ass
  • missy: haha
  • missy: Sean: you need to talk faster
  • michele: yeah
  • michele: I’m uncomfortable
  • missy: But, this is the one award where they always seem to let the guy ramble on & on
  • missy: Was Bill Murray going to leave?
  • michele: i Have NO ideal
  • missy: Not. Cool.
  • michele: hahahha
  • michele: I dea

  14. Any news as to whether Bill Murray was gonna leave? My word.

  15. I like how, twice, you say “she is forgiven”. Because when it comes to awards show fashion, it is hard to forgive.

    I still think Marcia looked terrible, and not because she is pregnant (because pregnancy is a beautiful thing, people!) but because her stylist (along with designer Badgley Mischka) is on crack. Charlotte on Sex and the City knew how to pull off Elizabeth Taylor (the ep where she pulls herself together after the miscarriage and goes to Brady’s 1st birthday party). This, on the other hand, was just a fashion tragedy. Charlotte also knew how to pull off Badgley Mischka (see her wedding dress when she married Harry).

  16. Clearly I am obsessed with fashion. And Charlotte.
