Ah, we're doing best supporting actor right away. Surely this is J.K. Simmons.
No, those are my predictions. I think Keaton might win it.
Of course, sometimes predictions and favorites coexist.
Actually I might say that Norton is my favorite in this category. Loved this performance.
And the Oscar goes to . . . J.K. Simmons
Ah, that was me changing my mind at the last minute.
Simmons speech is a tribute to his family . . . "Everybody, call your mom. Call your dad. if you're lucky enough to have a parent or two alive on this planet." Nice.
One story got finished before the other. Sorry; we should have checked to make sure they all matched.
And all of us are now 1 for 1 on our ballots, right?
Ah, here's Liam Neeson, who's currently making a mid-career specialty of being an action-movie-revenge guy.
I don't think there's any way to judge for best performance. It's just a hunch as to who might win.
I would call my parents right now, but I'm a little busy. But I talked to them this morning.
Anyone else distracted, when they watched American Sniper, by that very obviously fake baby?
And the makeup winner is . . . Grand Budapest Hotel!
I'm thinking Grand Budapest will win quite a few tonight, particularly in the design categories.
I'd also like to thank my dear friend, Bill Murray.
And that's why they won the Oscar!
Here's Channing Tatum, and I just noticed that my nephew looks kind of like him. No, I will not introduce him to anyone.
Very cute Team Oscar, though did they all have to wear black?
OK, I'm 3 for 3. How are you all doing?
He's good at this. Question: If he manages to host the Grammys, will they give him a special EGOT?
And another haiku: "Boyhood" took twelve years / It seems as if Oscar night / Will be just as long.
Agreed, gablelomb -- but she'll win her Oscar one day.
And Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman are here to present best foreign-language film . . . I haven't seen all the nominees, but I'm predicting "Ida."
And it goes to . . . "Ida." I'm having a pretty good night. As are the makers of "Ida."
In answer to the query below: I think Grand Budapest, i.e. Alexandre Desplat, might take original score.
