HOW WE DID
My Correct Choice (16/21=76.19%) / Griz's Correct Choice (14/21=66.67%) / Correct Alternate (Mine: 19/21=90.47% | Griz: 21/21=100%!!!!)

This is amazing: with alternates, Griz is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT CORRECT. Wow. He should've gone with some of his second hunches! And I should've not relied on King's Speech sweeping!

THE SHOW

Showstopper: autotuning musical montage was the most exciting part of the show. James Franco & Anne Hathaway disappointed, and some of their jokes really fell flat. The cross dressing part was just embarrassing.

Favourite win: Christian Bale, because he deserved it.

Shocking win/loss: King’s Speech not winning any technical award

Best presenter: Kirk Douglas was such a hoot.

THE FASHION

Best dressed

Worst dressed


WTHeck dressed


Trend: red, silver, and purple were the most prominent colours; a notable lack of big time jewelry

Congratulations on beating me! I hope you're pleased. ;)

100% with alternates is pretty cool, but it's not that much of an accomplishment, at least not with winner predictions.

The show was pretty tame. The hosts had nothing to do, there wasn't much to laugh at.. Kirk Douglas was fun in that "he's so old that he doesn't give a fuck about anything anymore" way, but at the same time it's kind of sad too since he could barely talk. Mixed feelings about that one.

Oh, and I could not disagree more with the autotune part... CRINGE. Not to mention that shit has been done to death, it felt at least a year too late. They could've just as well have brought out MC Hammer to do the latest dance craze with baggy pants.

Bummed Fincher didn't win, and bummed Deakins didn't win (though Pfister deserved it too at least).

I'm not competitive. *darts eyes*

It's huge! Because you were not off by more than one picture? Wait, does that make sense? I mean, you were always hovering around the ball? Again, I wish I had followed my own judgment instead of thinking that King's Speech was going to steamroll it. Costumes from Alice in Wonderland made sense?

The show was pretty awkward and boring. The autotune clip was the best thing that happened to it, which says a lot? There were too many cringe worthy moments? A huge disappointment for me - James fared worse than Anne, though I'm not sure why I'm not surprised at that.
