The foreign film category is one of very few Oscar categories in which voters actually have to see every movie (there are special screenings). So I think it's a fairly even playing field.
All of Poland, as instructed, just took a drink right now.
I think it's just the nominees and presenters.
Visual effects, presented by Ansel Elgort and Chloe Grace Moretz. Take your hands out of your pockets, Chloe.
He's from The Fault In Our Stars; she's been in everything. I especially liked her in 30 Rock.
I predicted Interstellar for this one . . . but maybe Guardians?
And the Oscar goes to . . . Interstellar.
Sight unseen, I would have thought "Interstellar" would be one of the big contenders tonight. Too bad.
Apparently an Oscar is good for a free drink? Who knew?
Kevin Hart and Anna Kendrick, who are both animated and short, are here to introduce the animated short category. This should be Feast, right? The Pixar one?
And the Oscar goes to . . .Feast.
They were playing at the Seven Gables, a week ago -- maybe still there? I'll check during the break.
10 for 11 . . . but we're not even halfway. Then again, there have been years when I got less than 10 total, so I'm happy.
Animated feature film, which probably should have gone to The Lego Movie, presented by Zoe Saldana and Dwayne Johnson, formerly known as The Rock. I predict . . . How to Train Your Dragon 2?
Thumbs up to Zoe for wearing an actual color!
"Song of the Sea,' from Ireland, opens here next week, by the way.
And the Oscar goes to . . . Big Hero 6. Missed that one.
"Have there been six of those movies?" someone in the room just asked. No.
Well, he's not going to win, so I guess they thought they'd give him a perk.
Thank you, gablelomb! Love your screen name.
How's everyone's ballot doing?
Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, here to do . . . what?
I believe this is known as The Moment When We All Go to Get More Dip.
