FDL: Live Blogs Oscar Red Carpet with WGAE and Special Guests

The red carpet arrivals are always an opportunity to dish and delight on who’s wearing what, and let’s face it, the red carpet’s a huge product placement for designers and jewels, as well as for the arrivees’ latest project. But also a great way to get some fashion tips and don’ts.

We are thrilled to have members of the Writers Guild of America joining in on liveblogging this and the later Oscar broadcast which starts at 5pm PST/8pm EST.  The WGA and Firedoglake have a storied history, going back to the Writers Strike in 2007, when FDL founder Jane Hamsher who, before becoming the political force she is today produced such films as Natural Born Killers, From Hell, Apt Pupil, and Permanent Midnight. Jane put the full force of FDL behind the WGA, with five dozen posts from her and other FDL writers about the strike and walking the picket lines herself.

Les Moonves made $28.6 million last year. It’s awfully hard to accept this overweening concern for the future of the industry and simultaneously justify that kind of executive compensation. The average WGA member makes about $5000 a year…Howie Klein and I joined the writers the other day in the picket line and had a whole lot of fun.

Words are the life blood of our culture, in the beginning was the word, ya know. Words are our stock in trade, we live on our wit. And, Firepups, don’t be shy about asking the writers questions about themselves and their work!

Hey and here we go! Welcome to the Live Blog of the red carpet!


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:01 pm 2

Tonight we have some special guests including members of the WGA-East


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:02 pm 3

Ryan Seacrest is omnipresent.

Cat Noel just said he’s like “Glorious Leader, about the same height and hair”


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:02 pm 4

(she’ll be live blogging the actual show, but tossing me bons mots now)


egregious | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:05 pm 5

How exciting – thanks Lisa!


Kathryn in MA | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:07 pm 6

I’m here watching too! Nice party you organized!


Kathryn in MA | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:11 pm 7

Style is when you own how you look.
Patricia Field


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:12 pm 8

Monique is wearing gardenias in her hair…

Some of this has just be advertorial for designers..Oooh you’re wearing Burberry


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:15 pm 9

Here’sa behind the scenes fashion note:

In a letter sent to dozens of Oscar nominees and others in the film industry set to attend Sunday’s Oscars, Danny Glover called on the stars not to wear Hugo Boss to the event.

Glover, in collaboration with labor union Workers United, is asking Hollywood to take a stand on behalf of nearly 400 Hugo Boss manufacturing workers in Cleveland who are set to lose their jobs if the company is allowed to close its plant there.

He is also asking attendees to wear a pin they were sent showing solidarity with the workers. The pin reads: “Keep the Hugo Boss Plant Open.”


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:16 pm 10

Thanks Kathryn!


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:18 pm 11

Mariah Carey, again a little too low cut..bosomery is great, but there is a fine line between too much clevege and alluring


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:19 pm 12

Seacrest has his notes on his hand like Sarah Palin.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:20 pm 13

M’o'n’i'q’u'e looks beautiful. Even though I know that beneath that gown, her legs are furry like a wolf.


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:21 pm 14

Mickey Rooney, reduced to a few words before the toss. And he was THE NUMBER ONE STAR… IN THE WORLD.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:21 pm 15

Mickey Rooney is shrinking! Enjoy him now Hollywood, in five or six years there will be nothing left!


Elliott | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:26 pm 16

Partah!

Greetings venerable guests.
Sadly, I can only rely on your eyes for now.


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:28 pm 17

Raining on the Red Carpet. We’ll finally find out exactly who in Hollywood is a witch.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:28 pm 18

Oh my. James Cameron has a blue puff in his pocket. It must be his tribute to Avatar.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:29 pm 19
In response to Caissie St.Onge @ 17

Hey, I represent that statement


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:29 pm 20

Why isn’t Ryan asking anyone who they are wearing? Vera Farmiga’s dress looks like a twisted red velvet cupcake liner.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:29 pm 21

It’s a fan dance in a dress!


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:30 pm 22

Seacrest is trying to wheedle Vera Farmiga’s home address out of her. You’re too short for her, man.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:30 pm 23

Do they serve rolls at the Oscars? Vera Farmiga is gonna get so many crumbs stuck in that thing.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:30 pm 24

There we goooo..it’s a Marquesa..and a misstep!


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:31 pm 25
In response to Bonnie Datt @ 20

The dress is a Marquessa -translation: If I wear Harvey Weinstein’s wife’s dress, maybe he’ll cast me in one of his films.


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:32 pm 26

Fun game to play while watching IFC’s Independent Spirit Awards: “Dave Grohl or Jason Reitman?”

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Jane Hamsher | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:33 pm 27

I loved my inauguration ball gown until I saw Jessica Alba wore it to the Oscars. Then I thought about it and decided I just loved it more.

Who’s wearing Marchesa this year?


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:34 pm 28

If he’s funny it’s Grohl.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:35 pm 29

(Vera Farmiga was wearing Marchessa. Guaranteed there will be others).


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:35 pm 30

Probably this wife of James Cameron will be up for Best Director ten years from now


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:35 pm 31

Did Ryan Seacrest just describe Sandra Bullock as a hermaphrodite?


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:36 pm 32

There’s Tina Fey! Maybe she’ll cry again!


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:36 pm 33

They should have gone further, “Will Avatar put the hurt on Hurt Locker, or will it get Blindsided. Or is it Up in the Air? Because the academy are a bunch of Inglorious Basterds who may give us An Education… District 9.”

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:36 pm 34

James Cameron’s wife just said that a family is a collaborative effort, same as a movie


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:37 pm 35

It looks like Nicole Richie gained a lot of weight. She must weigh 80 or 90 pounds now.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:40 pm 36

Kathryn Bigelow saw Avatar five times, saving $80


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:40 pm 37

Do we believe James Cameron feels good about Hurt Locker?


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:40 pm 38

Ryan said to James Cameron, “there is an industry word you used. ” I’m guessing it was “nepotism.”


Loo Hoo. | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:40 pm 39
In response to Lisa Derrick @ 9

That is so cool!


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:41 pm 40

Peter Saarsgard is starring in The Ben Kinglsey Story


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:41 pm 41

Maggie G looks very pretty despite her dress.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:41 pm 42

Wow E!’s crawl just pointed out that if Blind Side wins it wil be the first Best Pic win w/out a sreenplay nom since Titanic…


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:42 pm 43

Steve Carrell and his wife Nancy! Truly one of the the nicest people in Hollywood.


Loo Hoo. | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:43 pm 44
In response to Elliott @ 16

There’s a live stream at HuffPo, Elliot.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:43 pm 45

Wow I hate director Tom Ford’s tuxedo jacket. I wonder who he is wearing?

Oh.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:44 pm 46

Bonnie are you watching ABC or E!?


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:44 pm 47

ABC has something called the “fashion skyway” – translation, “They won’t let us down near the celebrities.” Either that, or it’s a cleavage-cam innovation.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:45 pm 48

E that’s what I was told to watch. Are we now on ABC.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:46 pm 49

Cool…


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:47 pm 50

We switched to ABC too…


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:47 pm 51

I’m watching ABC, E! and Oscar.com


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:48 pm 52

it’s our local dudes


Loo Hoo. | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:51 pm 53

Tina!


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:52 pm 54

Back to E (commercial). Tina is wearing Michael Kors. Slightly better than her Globes dress, but not by much.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:53 pm 55

Ryan Seacrest asked Tina Fey if it was tough to be a mom and work in film and TV. I miss Joan Rivers


Elliott | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:56 pm 56
In response to John Marshall @ 40

I go for him


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:56 pm 57

I miss Joan Rivers the most at the Grammys. Asking the Blind Boys of Alabama if they got lots of groupies…


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:56 pm 58

Abu Dhabi is watching the awards. I wonder if they have censors that place burkas on top of all the women.


ElanaLevin | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:56 pm 59
In response to John Marshall @ 55

gee, I hope someone asks one of the Dad’s on the red carpet that question. .

Btw team WGAE– 100% of my two person Oscar party thinks you’re hilarious.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:56 pm 60
In response to John Marshall @ 55

Gee Lucille Ball did it…


Loo Hoo. | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:57 pm 61

Who is that woman with the pearlescent gown. Long brown hair. I love that dress.


Elliott | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:57 pm 62
In response to Loo Hoo. @ 44

thanks, Loo Hoo! ABC has it now.


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:59 pm 63

“Sandra Bullock” and “Oscars” don’t make sense together.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:59 pm 64

There are way too many skin toned dresses on the red carpet. Yawn.


Loo Hoo. | Sunday March 7, 2010 03:59 pm 65

Oh! Sandra Bullock.


Elliott | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:00 pm 66
In response to Bonnie Datt @ 57

*giggling*


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:01 pm 67
In response to Bonnie Datt @ 64

I am very muchover that mumsy, mother of the bride shade–beige, champagne, peach PUKE


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:01 pm 68

Sandra Bullock just asked Barbara Walters what kind of tree she would be – she’s going to win


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:01 pm 69

Oh no, there is devil woman publicist in the background (not mentioning any names), but truly one of the most horrible people I’ve ever dealt with.


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:01 pm 70

Tyler Perry cross dressed as a man? Weird.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:02 pm 71

I am on ABC not caring for Sandra Bullock’s lipstick color


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:02 pm 72

Barbara Walters looks like she’s introducing PBS’s Mystery.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Elliott | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:02 pm 73

oh, now we’re on to Baba Wawa


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:03 pm 74

They’re using a telestrator to point out the curves in a dress, just like NBC did with for the moguls in the Winter Olympics


TobyWollin | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:03 pm 75
In response to Lisa Derrick @ 67

Lisa – I’ve been the mother of the bride – twice – and I never wore that color. It’s a non-color.


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:04 pm 76

Mickey Rooney is just lingering on the red carpet. He’s so excited to have shrunken to exact boob height this year.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:05 pm 77

Amanda Seyfried has decided to pretend she has no breasts. I think she’s wearing Armani’s pracice dress for Lady Gaga’s Grammy dress.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:05 pm 78
In response to TobyWollin @ 75

Thank you for saving yourself from the perils of pale peach.

I do like ashes of roses though

In response to Lisa Derrick @ 71

I am in Colorado and agreeing with you, shades of Morticia…


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:06 pm 80

Mickey Rooney is a walking STD. Or am I getting confused with the villian he plays in Iron Man 2? Watch out everybody!


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:06 pm 81

Faith Hill’s make up is a mess. Like she should be wearing a flannel shirt, ripped jeans and a nirvana T-shirt.


TobyWollin | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:07 pm 82
In response to Lisa Derrick @ 78

I went for massive color hits: burnt orange for one; gold for the other. And hats.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:07 pm 83

Can we start a no more shawl collars on men’s tuxedos movement, please?


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:08 pm 84

Why are these people on top of the El Capitan Theater? What is so interesting up there?


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:09 pm 85

Jake Gyllenhaal is short! Ryan Seacrest doesn’t have to raise his head so high


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:09 pm 86

Helen Mirren has doubled her support for Best Actress from 1% to 2%


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:09 pm 87

there are toooooo many commercials


colomom | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:10 pm 88

Is that Helen Mirren in the GORGEOUS lilac gown? I LOVE that!!!


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:11 pm 89

Mo’Nique is in an open marriage and doesn’t shave her legs, according to the Barbara Walters Special. That might cost her in the next E! poll


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:11 pm 90
In response to John Marshall @ 84

John, E moved Kathy Griffin up there once, to keep her away from the stars. (this was after the “have you heard Dakota Fanning is in rehab” incident).


Loo Hoo. | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:11 pm 91
In response to John Marshall @ 86

HA!


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:12 pm 92

Barbara just asked Mo’Nique to “say something funny”


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:12 pm 93

Barbara Walters is 115 years old


Loo Hoo. | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:12 pm 94

So I gather I’m alone on liking Sandra’s dress. It would look better on a black woman…


TobyWollin | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:13 pm 95
In response to Bonnie Datt @ 18

I just saw a photo on Yahoo of Cameron with Suzi Amis (is she married to Cameron?) and I have to say I could do great things with her if I just had her locked in my kitchen. I figure with three days, I could make her recognize food again.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:14 pm 96

If Miley Cyrus trips in those heels, she might do an achey breaky fall. (sorry, I coudn’t help myself).


Lowell Peterson | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:14 pm 97

Can we go back to the ABC thing? While we are thinking about shaved legs and etc. there is a Big Issue being played out. Will ABC be able to make its stick-up stick against Cablevision and get big money in retransmission fees? OK. I will stop being a nebbish. I get it. But I still can’t watch this ceremony on TV! Dang.


Cellar47 | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:14 pm 98
In response to colomom @ 88

Translation: Her husband is gay and she’s not shaving her legs in order to hang onto him.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:14 pm 99

Miley Cyrus’s mom just came on to Ryan Seacrest

I’m glad to see Sarah Jessica Parker promoting recycling with her dress.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:15 pm 103

Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing steel magnolias


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:17 pm 104

In response to John Marshall @ 103

And hair.


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:17 pm 106

Bad joke, Seacrest. She should look older because her ancestors are from the 1600s.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:17 pm 107

Kathryn Bigelow is tall enough to be in Avatar


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:17 pm 108

Yes, Clooney has arrived! Move SJP’s genealogical ramblings to an inset window.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:17 pm 109

SJP is BRIGHT ORANGE


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:17 pm 110

Or should I say shortcrest?


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:18 pm 111

James Cameron’s new wife thinks Katherine Bigelow is soooo fat.

Bonnie Datt! THE Bonnie Datt? Who used to perform with me at the Rose and Thistle in San Francisco?

You may remember me from by classic comedy routines about the BIG Underwear and mentally ill people working at McDonalds. The Ghost of John Cantu says hello and is telling the presenters to “Say something funny you chuckle heads!”

I still live in SF and have been fighting evil right wing talk radio hosts. Here’s a story about me in the New York Times (link)

Here’s a mention of me from Today’s San Chronicle about another radio host I helped get fired.


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:19 pm 113

Seacrest said “The Lovely Bones” as if it was Stanley Tucci’s nickname.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:19 pm 114

Ryan Seacrest asked Stanley Tucci if he went somewhere “in his mind” as opposed to “in his life” for The Lovely Bones


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:20 pm 115

Note to E! – I do not need any extra encouragement to look at Charlize Theron’s breasts.

Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:20 pm 116

Speaking for all men, we are looking at her chest more than her face. Doesn’t matter what the dress is.

Here in Hawaii, the “live” broadcast is on tape delay. What sort of fun [or suspense] is that?


Elana Levin | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:30 pm 136

I’m dying for commentary on the Barbara Walters special. sooo much potential here. It was so nice to see Jeremy Irons on a screen of some kind. Even if it was an old clip. Is there a roll for him in the upcoming Avengers movie?


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:30 pm 137

If George Clooney were firing people, people would line up to get fired

Demi Moore’s dress is Demi Moore-colored.

Does she have the twins in that “bustle”?

Meryl looks like she’s wearing a hotel bathrobe. I think I saw the Peninsula logo on it.

Jane, we need some sort of an “anti-inauguration”/ “I regret the whole damn thing” ball. You could wear your dress again.

Lots of bland pastels and not much jewelry — is this a nod to the recession? (I’m being political!)

Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:44 pm 173

Keep your eyes open for the bent arm/hand on the hip pose on the red carpet. It makes the ladies arms and bodies look slimmer…

So the Oscars have been American Idol-ized? And did he say Lady Gaga is opening the show? What is this cryptic message from Ryan Seacrest?


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 04:46 pm 176

Ryan Shortcrest just said THE END IS NEAR and that everyone on the red carpet should run for their lives.

My friend countered with “You can’t make a billion dollars with a better script. Every turn and twist YOU would have loved would have cost the movie millions… this is a mass-produced movie, with a mass-produced script… it’s the best script for the job.”

Well I’m done

Who’s the chick in the middle?

Must be a good night for the Koo-Koo-Roo at the Kodak Center!

Kathy Ireland made the astute observation that Miley Cyrus had mastered comedy. I bet Lucille Ball is so glad she’s dead.

Kathy Ireland’s neck still ages even if her face doesn’t

In summary of the red carpet:

Too many skintones and pastels.

Too many shawl collars on tuxes.

Not enough “bling.”

Are we migrating now? I have to pull up my tent stakes

No wonder Kathy Griffin gets pissed when she’s mistaken for Kathy Ireland by her old comedy pals like Don Rickles.

Where do we go? Where do we go?


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:29 pm 324

Where is the wagon train going?

Based on its trailer’s lack of laughs, I assume The Back-up Plan is a drama staring Gabourey Sidibe?

Ladies, from now on childbirth will legally be called “Labor based on the novel Push by Sapphire.”

The techapparatchik will put a link in this thread so we can all go crash the new thread when it’s live, I’m sure. Unless you all want to refresh firedoglake.com feverishly in hopes of getting the “FIRST!” which we around here mindlessly call “ZED”

The proscenium is in Avatar blue

Now the visiting team’s lineup.


Lowell Peterson | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:32 pm 333

Ok, so with all this talk of bit torrent and other conspiracies to deprive people of their due, no one has figured out how to live stream the awards ceremony? omg. Curse you, Dolan clan!


Timothy Michael Cooper | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:38 pm 334

Did they just call Gabourey a “cast”?


Timothy Michael Cooper | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:46 pm 335

In case you haven’t seen these movies, they’re showing the entire trailer of each film from which any actor was nominated.


Timothy Michael Cooper | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:49 pm 336

Guess I didn’t get that “switching boards” message.


Elliott | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:02 pm 337

Love the Neumann


Lowell Peterson | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:12 pm 338

Man, I wish I knew how much the ABC/Dolan deal amounts to (um, the Awards are back on Cablevision.) I love TV!


Lowell Peterson | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:14 pm 339

Good job, Tina and Robert!


Lowell Peterson | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:16 pm 340

Woop woop The Writers Guild gave Mark Boal the screenplay award, too. I have to say that Mark Boal’s speech was eerily foreshadowed by . . .


Lowell Peterson | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:21 pm 341

Anthony Mackie!!


drzoon | Sunday March 7, 2010 08:04 pm 342
