FDL Live Blogs the Oscars with WGAE and Special Guests

Well, we got through the red carpet, though many of the stars’ outfits didn’t! Yikes! So now it’s onto the Academy Awards themselves, with co-hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.

We’ve got our super liveblog team in place, and that includes you, glamorous Firepups, at home in your satin pajamas and tiaras; as well as Los Angeles-based fashionista/lifestyle consultant Janet Grey, who’s been feeding me one liners during the red carpet, and reality show star and radio personality Cat Noel.

Here are our special guests from the Writers Guild of America-East:

Michael Winship, WGAE President and senior writer on Bill Moyers Journal.

Fred Graver, Emmy Winner and founder of iLarious, Creator of VH1′s Best Week Ever, Letterman, In Living Color & pretty much everything else you’ve ever seen.

John Marshall, Emmy nominated writer from The Chris Rock Show, Politically Incorrect, The Electric Company.

Caissie St.Onge, Best Week Ever, The Rosie O’Donnell Show.

Justin DiLauro, CBS News Promo writer (and master of brevity).

Bonnie Datt, The Confirmed Bachelors and fashion blogger for Racked.com.

Dan McCoy, 9am Meeting, two time Channey Award winner shown on Channel 101 New York.

Dan McNamara, The Bear, The Cloud and God seen on Comedy Central and Atom.com and “Amazing The Lion” on the Independent Comedy Network.

Timothy Michael Cooper, Concierge: The Series.

Lowell Peterson, WGAE Executive Director.

This year the Best Picture category is kinda wonky. There are ten nominees instead of the usual five, and Academy members were asked to rank them in order rather vote on just one. If Hurt Locker wins, expect James Cameron to need Cialis for awhile, since it’s directed by his ex-wife Katherine Bigelow. Granted, he’s been really supportive of her work, but–um…

I have my predictions in all categories, but I’ll save them for the comments.

The categories are below, we’ll be updating along the way with winners in bold italics; and we’ll be having a raucous good time gossiping, joking and commenting. Thanks for joining in!

Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:35 pm 27

Neil Patrick Harris is on my laminated card


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:35 pm 28

I hope Steve Martin finds time to play the banjo. He’s my second favorite banjo player after Kermit the Frog. Distant second.


kall | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:36 pm 29

I’m not watching the Oscars (never do) but for whatever it’s worth I hope District 9 does well.


catnoel | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:36 pm 30

Math is hard!


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:36 pm 31

There would not be this show without writers–no one would watch


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:36 pm 32

And for Best Mustache… It’s Christopher Plummer!

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:36 pm 33

Christopher Plummer looks like a has a nasty habit or two.


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:37 pm 34

Lots of gratuitous “oh, I’ll laugh because they mentioned my movie” laughter…


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:37 pm 35

Monologues….Billy Crystal come back!


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:37 pm 36

This is just like the red carpet, only funnier and inside


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:37 pm 37

Wow, Meryl Streep is there!


Michael Winship | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:37 pm 38

Where’s Bob Hope when you need him? Shacking up in heaven with Marilyn Maxwell no doubt, right Louis B. Mayer?

Not you Cat, Alec and Steve “Is he high?” IS THAT THE BEST YOU CA DO?


Justin DiLauro | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:41 pm 49

The attending audience didn’t see that… or get it.


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:41 pm 50

Woody looked kinda pissed. It’s not like he’s the only person in Hollywood who gets high. I read.


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:41 pm 51

Cutting to people who aren’t laughing really helps make it look like everyone is having fun.


catnoel | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:41 pm 52

We saw Point Break Live. It made up for lack of sequel…oh wait THERE is a sequel..but Patrick Swayze RIP


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:44 pm 63

George Clooney getting the eye from Alec. Keeping George on a tight leash, very smart.


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:44 pm 64

I read that Tina Fey “punched up” the script… No, I don’t believe it!@ I DON’T!!!

Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:44 pm 66

Penelope Cruz is about to talk. It’s gonna get hilarious now.


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:45 pm 67

The LA TImes app group predicts Christoph Waltz


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:45 pm 68

The onlger she speaks, the shorter the winner wil have I beleive is what she really meant


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:45 pm 69

I would like Penelope Cruz’s adorable broken English to lull me to sleep every night.

Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:45 pm 72

Hey, this is great.. they’re running the whole movie for each nominee!


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:46 pm 73
In response to Fred Graver @ 64

In response to Fred Graver @ 67

so did Ebert


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:46 pm 75

I wonder what Tom Cruise thought he was getting into when his agent/sister suggested he date Penelope Cruz. “Cruise? Sure, I can do that…”


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:47 pm 76

The commercial killed this movie – it had every scene in it


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:47 pm 77

Why wasn’t Stanley Tucci’s wig/mustache nominated?

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting

It’s true! Even the Writers Guild Awards show needed writers! Fun factoid: head wgae awards show writer Craig Shemin wrote for some of my favorite shows of all time: Muppet Show and Sesame Street.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:48 pm 80

SPOILER for Inglorious B


RevDeb | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:48 pm 81

I don’t understand why
Plummer is in supporting category. Saw the movie last night. Tolstoy was the main character.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:48 pm 82

Waltz


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:48 pm 83

Christoph Waltzed in Like Hitler Into Poland!

Justin DiLauro | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:49 pm 87

I didn’t know he already had the accent.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:49 pm 88

The Cablevsion-ABC scroll is lasting longer than his speech


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:49 pm 89

Actors love them some Quentin.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:49 pm 90

In response to RevDeb @ 81

I only know the old rules, but back then anyone whose name was AFTER the titles was supporting..who knows now..maybe one of our writers can update us on the whys?

If Sandra wins so does the NRA.


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:52 pm 100

ANNDDD… I guess you don’t watch the Oscars for the Ads. So much for “this is the Superbowl of Hollywood.”


catnoel | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:52 pm 101

The Miley Cyrus Lifetime Achievement Award of Excellence… coming up.


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:53 pm 102

So this year we’re going to have extended clips of best actor/best actress PLUS all ten nominated films? Where’s my NoDoz? Never get through this clip show. That was a ninety-second clip, times ten for actor/actress is fifteen minutes, plus ten movies: thirty minutes of clips alone.


Justin DiLauro | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:54 pm 103

When we return: More from the Red-Carpet


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:54 pm 104

They’re showing Winter Olympics ads . . . the Oscars are the Winter Olympics of Hollywood


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:54 pm 105

As my friend Matt said at our Oscar party – The Bounty Hunter just looks like “Beat up your wife! That’s everyone’s fantasy, right guys? Right? Abuse is hilarious, right?”

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Michael Winship | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:54 pm 106

We’re going to show you trailers for The Bounty Hunter and the J-Lo movie until you beg for mercy!

Is it me or does Elisabetta Canalis look really cranky?


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:55 pm 108

Okay… one award after 25 minutes… at this rate, we’ll be done… oh I can’t even be funny about this soul-deadening exercise…


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:55 pm 109

Jennifer Garner seems to have accepted that her husband sleeps with other men.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:56 pm 110

If you have Cablevision, you’re not watching to see the crawl at the bottom


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:57 pm 111

My wife just came in and reminded me that someone I might someday want to work with might reading this …. and I laughed and laughed and laughed…


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 05:57 pm 112

Miss Diaz is no shorty.

Well, since I’m betting we might comprise 90% of our own audience, I appreciate it.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:01 pm 130

In Canada, she’s Kilometry Cyrus

One big difference. The Smothers Brothers were funny.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:01 pm 133

Miley’s boobs are huge, and that dress is too low cut


Timothy Michael Cooper | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:01 pm 134

I like how they’ve scaled down onstage bling in the wake of Haiti and Chile.


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:01 pm 135

Oops, that was supposed to reply to 122. EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART!


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:02 pm 136

Why don’t they just animate Randy’s regular songs


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:02 pm 137

Please hit the facebook and tweet link at the top of your page for shameless self promotion!


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:03 pm 138

Someone might have suggested to BillyRay’s spawn that she wear her bra under the dress.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:04 pm 139

Thank goodness Crazy Heart won! Nine cut four of the best songs from the Broadway musical and replaced it with THAT original song. Makes me miss the glory days of “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp.”


Michael Winship | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:04 pm 140

I miss performances of all the songs. Remember when Sammy Davis performed the theme from Shaft? I know, I’m very very old…


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:04 pm 141

Aw, T. Bone. You lovable blind-stork-looking S.O.B. This is great.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:05 pm 142

Ryan Bingham is also the name of the character George Clooney played in “Up In The Air.” True!


Elliott | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:05 pm 143

Lordy, that’s a comic combination


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:05 pm 144

LOVE YOU MORE THAN RAINBOWS AND THAT GUY LOVES RAINBOWS!


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:05 pm 145

T-Bone Burnett must be so excited to meet THE Miley Cyrus!


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:05 pm 146

How about when Paul McCartney and Wings did “Live and Let Die” with interpretative dancers?


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:05 pm 147

I went to school in District 9


Timothy Michael Cooper | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:05 pm 148

That guy is Manute Bol, if Manute Bol were white.


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:06 pm 149

District 9 is a triumph for movies where people get hit by crazy outer-space energy guns and explode.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:06 pm 150

This movie answers the question, are there special effects on other planets


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:07 pm 151

WAIT!!! What the hell is Chloe Sevigny wearing to the Oscars? A peasant dress and a long braid? Oh. Nevermind, the DVR just switched to Big Love.


Fred Graver | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:07 pm 152

Since we’re on firedoglake.com, I feel compelled to remind everyone that Health Care still hasn’t passed… BUT, there’s a very good chance it’ll pass before this OscarCast is over!!


catnoel | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:07 pm 153

I’m starting a band right now… WHITE MANUTE BOL. Who’s in?

Good because my SAG COBRA is almost up


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:08 pm 156

They’ve changed the Oscars to a product-promotion vehicle. None of these youngsters have been in any movies that aren’t being released this coming year.

In response to Elliott @ 160

Cowbell here!


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:11 pm 163

Posture and enunciation lessons are what Miley should have gotten for her sweet sixteen. She is a bad example for young American women.


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:11 pm 164

Woody Harrelson is getting high during the commercial breaks! How many woody gets high jokes can we stuff into one night?!

Robt Downey Jr looks like he took a pic of Liberace into his plastic surgeon for the last appt.

This is good! So far so good!


Elliott | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:13 pm 177

hmm, I don’t care for the blue bow tie, is that velvet?

Tina’s missing a strap


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:14 pm 178

THIS IS GOOD.. Go WRITERS!


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:14 pm 179

The graphics are in Final Draft


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:14 pm 180

Wait, the presenters are reading lines from the nominated screenplays now? That’s absurd.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:15 pm 181

This is a tribute to stage directions


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:15 pm 182

I think it’s a great way to show how scripts translate to screen


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:15 pm 183

And by presenters I mean, “Tina Fey only”

Manute Bol! Yes!


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:16 pm 186

Now is “Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire” up for best adapted screenplay? I can never remember…

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Timothy Michael Cooper | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:16 pm 187

Precious was robbed by not being nominated for Best Original Screenplay! It wasn’t based on a novel, was it?


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:16 pm 188

By who?


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:16 pm 189

Let the sweep begin


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:16 pm 190

Y’know, suddenly the fact that this show doesn’t come on here until 6:30pm [that's 11:30 pm "your" time] + the fact that I can tape it and run through in about 42 minutes tomorrow is starting to look pretty good.


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:17 pm 194

Yay! Maybe being a member would have helped you get a few votes Mr. Tarantino.

James Cameron was looking worried…


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:17 pm 195

Two right so far. Too bad I didn’t join the pool.


Elana Levin | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:18 pm 201

and a Writers Guild member wins for best screenplay again! No duh. I’m sure Fred Graver’s iPhone app for the LA Times predicted that one, right? The script won the WGA’s best original screenplay award too.

QT is not even in the DGA but was nominated at their awards


Bonnie Datt | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:21 pm 211

I’m saying the Breakfast Club lines along with the characters, all Rocky Horror-like.

In response to Justin DiLauro @ 208

I thought not…


Elana Levin | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:23 pm 220

i hope next year they let TWO writers guild of america members be awards presenters (in addition to winning the awards). I want to see people I regularly deal with in ballgowns dammit!


Timothy Michael Cooper | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:23 pm 221

John Hughes’s death was the most important thing that happened in 2009.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:24 pm 222

I don’t recall dead people’s family members every getting acknowledged during the Oscars

Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:24 pm 227

Why did UP get nominated for best picture? What’s the Animated Picture category for anyway?


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:25 pm 228

Up should win for making so many people cry.


Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:25 pm 229

Because it was amazing.

Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:25 pm 230
In response to Bonnie Datt @ 216

As Clooney told some red carpet person “she doesn’t speak English” Okay do I just think it’s creepy to do that to her, put in in the middle of something like that?


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:26 pm 231

John Hughes had some pull to get separated from the the dead people montage.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:26 pm 232

A notice to our customers: Cablevision and ABC are now disputing some of the deal points we agreed to earlier. Basically we’re sitting in a room watching the Oscars on Time-Warner, so it doesn’t affect us personally. In any evet, we will let you know with another scroll, which is becoming a new artistic medium for us.


Justin DiLauro | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:27 pm 233

Coming up next:
The Oscars remember the 90′s


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:27 pm 234
In response to Dan McCoy @ 229

Be that as it may, the Best Animated Picture category was created to allow live action movies to compete on their own, wasn’t it?


Lowell Peterson | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:28 pm 235

Alec Baldwin’s hair is shorter now, did you notice?
But how ’bout that WGA predictor effect? Come to our awards, figure out who wins the Oscar.

In response to John Marshall @ 232

Dan McCoy | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:29 pm 237
In response to Teddy Partridge @ 234

No, it was created because amazing animated films kept not getting nominated for best picture, so they figured there needed to be some way to honor them. But there’s nothing that says they can’t be nominated for both.

WGA East/ 9 AM Meeting


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:29 pm 238

how many Short winners have gone to make features?


Lowell Peterson | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:29 pm 239

Is there a betting pool on how much money Cablevision is paying to ABC?


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:29 pm 240
In response to Lisa Derrick @ 230

Clooney said that to Sherri Shephard, and then said to her “And you’re lucky she doesn’t because she’d probably cut you for that.” Not sure what Sherri said to deserve that, though.

Of course she speaks English, everyone in Italy does. But clearly that was their pre-arranged way of dealing with assholes like Sherri Shephard.


Elana Levin | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:29 pm 241
In response to Bonnie Datt @ 225

clearly everyone should watch Susan Kim when she’s on The View tuesday to talk about her book “Flow: The Cultural Story of Menstruation”

Timothy Michael Cooper | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:31 pm 247

Darn Dan, you beat me!


Michael Winship | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:36 pm 268

Sorry China’s Unnatural Disaster didn’t win for documentary short. I was publicist for Jon Alpert’s first two documentaries way back when and the first documentary I ever wrote was co-written with Jon. But congrats to Music by Prudence


kleinwords2010 | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:36 pm 269

Let the guy get a word in edgewise. Who was that redhead?


Teddy Partridge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:36 pm 270

I bet she was the money behind the enterprise.


John Marshall | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:36 pm 271

It should have been Miracle Fish or Kavi


Lisa Derrick | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:36 pm 272

BTW, two of the nominated docs were featured on FDL’s Movie Night, every Monday 5pm pacific time. And we’d love to have writers on to discuss their movies

Justin DiLauro | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:37 pm 275

who is going to interrupt them?


tomnessinger | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:37 pm 276

Sorry to interrupt, but perhaps one of you knows: When did they stop saying, “The Oscar goes to….” and go back to, “And the winner is….”? I thought they wanted to avoid saying “winner” so as not to make the non-winners feel like, well, losers. When did political correctness die?


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:37 pm 277

This guy is almost disappointed he won.


Justin DiLauro | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:37 pm 278

Okay, Ben Stiller stoyr:
I was at a dinner, he came in as we were seated and shook hands with everyone saying “Hi I’m Ben” okay whatev.

A friend was at a party a couple years later, and he did the same thing…weird.

Ben Stiller is very nice. He takes after his parents.

To boldly go where someone has gone before


Michael Winship | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:42 pm 293

Ben Stiller’s reference to the Best Picture fiasco at Independent Spirit Awards with the simulated sex acts… classy…


Dan McNamara | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:42 pm 294

I surely thought star trek would win the award for best lens flares but make up?


Caissie St.Onge | Sunday March 7, 2010 06:43 pm 295
