What was the name of the instrumental piece playing during the montage showing the nominees for Best Picture? I've heard it many times before and have never known the name.

I believe I read elsewhere it was Beethoven.

It's Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A Major (Opus 92), Allegretto.

We now live in a world where Alice in Wonderland and The Wolfman are Academy Award winning films, while True Grit, Exit Through The Gift Shop and 127 Hours are not.

Dammit, I figured ETTGS wasn't going to win, but couldn't the telecast have even cut to the person in Banksy's seat??

So, Kirk Douglas. At first I was upset since his rambling and spotlight-hogging would detract from the winner's triumph...but, then Melissa Leo made sure that everyone would be talking about her at the water cooler tomorrow. (btw, I couldn't believe that was her --- she looked 100 percent different than she did in the Fighter)

I had an inkling that Social Network might pull the upset when it won the editing award, but no dice. Nothing wrong with King's Speech, but it's not a 'great' movie. I have a bad feeling that Tom Hooper's name might be cursed by film nerds for years to come if Fincher or Aronofsky never goes on to win Best Director.

By the way, I can't wait to see Natalie Portman inducted into the Conan Academy Award Winner F-Bomb Hall of Fame.

I liked The Damned United better than The King's Speech.

Hopefully, people hearing about the latter will be driven to see the former.

Tom Hooper....man, bigest letdown ever. Three of the best new-millenium director plus the Coens, and they give it to the ex-Eastenders guy for a solid, workmanlike showing.

King's Speech was great, but not epic yet that was every movie nominated. None of them were blow away films of past winners like Godfather, Braveheart and Return of the King even though I think ROTK was the weakest of the three LOTR films. If any of the awards True Grit got hosed on it was best adapted screenplay that was a no brainer.

I am ok with the rest since Portman and Colin were the best ones in those roles even you added the girl from True Grit and Helen Bontiam-Carter in the category. I have to see Fighter to see if Bale and Leo needed those awards are because Bale should have won for American Psycho and he has the star of a giant franchise. To me, I am just glad Social Network didn't win and we can now move on to a better movie season. Best Director category was null and void when Nolan was not in it and I thought Hooper did a great job. Directing isn't about explosions or giant pans and its about setting as well as getting everything you can out of your crew. Something, he did very well.

SOCIAL NETWORK's script blew TRUE GRIT's away, and I say that as a lifelong Coen fan. It takes something spcial to make a group of nerds squabbling into an energetic, grippping drama. And FIncher deserved that statuette.

And why are epics the bar for Oscar films? Almost all the films nominated for BP this year are better than BRAVEHEART.

You'll be waiting a while. It was Melissa Leo that swore.



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

You set yourself up for some sort of The Prestige/Nolan/Bale joke/reference there, but I'm too sleepy to pull it all together.

My friends and I noted how many superheroes were on last night...did you realize that Avengers Jermey Renner and Mark Ruffalo were nominated in the same category?

Big Bang Theory does that every Thursday Night. Actually Kevin Smith along with Joss Whedon helped developed the fast paced nerd speak and neither has gotten a nod for anything. Sorkin's entire career is based on the fast talk hipster language ie West Wing. Also, Social Network the book is a hit job on the Facebook owner. There is not a lot of truth if any in that book. If it was a work of fiction then I would be ok with yet, its supposedly based on a true story even though the motive behind facebook was not to score with women as much as it was to make money as well see if it would work. True Grit is a great book and they did a great job of adapting it to the big screen even with the original one staring at them.

Braveheart is one of those great movies where even if is about 3 hours long, it doesn't feel that way. Even though I liked King's Speech, True Grit, Black Swan and Inception, I don't know if any of them had the emotional core or the scope of Braveheart. Plus, the Kids are All Right was PC trash. My point is in the past, there seemed to be a clear epic winner or at least two epics in the running. So, when it wins its something everyone agrees on. Even though early on, Social Network was the clear favorite, once people realized it was not this epic where everyone agreed it was the best picture, it lost momentum.

I am sure people will blame the old crusty voters for going with the historical English film with a special needs person over the douchebag rich kid who has a quick wit and manages to fuck his friend over for the sake of money as well as pussy. Yet, I think the academy looked on the pros and cons of each film then picked a good winner. For all we know, True Grit or Black Swan or Toy Story 3 could have lost this thing by one vote. Then again, from what I understand the Academy is a lot like the college football poll where politics, brand name and assistants make a large number of those decisions.

Did you just compare The Big Bang Theory to The West Wing and Aaron Sorkin's movie work? Yeah, there's not much point in continuing with this discussion.

Natalie Portman appears on Conan and drops the F-bomb: induction.

Melissa Leo appears on Conan and does not drop the F-bomb: no induction.

Also, a broad sitcom as opposed to a drama. As much as I enjoy the reference-littered interplay between Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons I don't think there's much energetic, gripping or dramatic about BBT.

Argh why can I not stop myself responding to your inanities!
