SOME I SAW AT THE TIME. SOME I KNEW FROM LEGEND AND TRACKED DOWN AND WATCHED WHEN I COULD FIND THEM. ALL ARE REAL. FIND THE CONTEXT YOURSELF, ESPECIALLY FOR THE HYPOCRISY OF THE CHARLIE CHAPLIN STANDING OVATION. HOW SOON THEY FORGET.
ALWAY RUTH TO START. SHE WAS 72. FUCK, SHE LOOKED GREAT.

WHY SHE WON.

HOW ANNOYED I WAS WITH MY FIRST SWEEP IN 1975 THAT I HAD NOT SEEN THE FILM. BEING ONLY 10, AND AS THE FILM WAS R18 IN NZ I WAS NOT ALLOWED. I SO LOVED LOUISE FLETCHER’S SPEECH. I WAS OBSESSED WITH HELEN KELLER AND WHEN SHE SIGNED I BURST INTO TEARS TO SEE SIGN ON TV. IT DID NOT HAPPEN OFTEN. SHE IS A WONDERFUL ACTOR.

SURPRISES………

Many expected silent film “The Artist” to be the top contender when nominations were announced Tuesday, but it was “Hugo,” Martin Scorsese’s 3-D family film, that earned the top spot with 11 nods. (“The Artist” earned 10.)
“Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” was considered a long shot for the best picture category, but now it’s among the nine films up for the Oscars’ highest honor.
Rooney Mara earned a best actress nomination for her role in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” bumping Tilda Swinton (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) out of the category.
Gary Oldman, fresh off a BAFTA nomination for “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” earned his first ever Oscar nomination this year, beating out expected best actor nominee “Michael Fassbender” (“Shame”). Also left out of the category: Leonardo DiCaprio, for “J. Edgar.”
Another surprise appearance on the best actor list came from Demian Bichir, nominated for his role in “A Better Life.”
In the directing category, David Fincher did not get a nomination for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”
It was expected that George Clooney would earn a best actor nomination for “The Descendants,” but he’s also nominated in the adapted screenplay category, with Grant Heslov and Beau Willimon for “The Ides of March.”
Another “Descendants” star was not so lucky – Shailene Woodley earned critical praise (and a Golden Globe nomination) for her performance in the film, but that didn’t translate to an Oscar nod.
“Bridesmaids” didn’t make the best picture list, but the comedy still got love from Academy voters – a best supporting actress nod for Melissa McCarthy, and an original screenplay nomination for Kristin Wiig and Annie Mumolo.
Albert Brooks’ Oscar prospects took a hit when he didn’t receive a SAG nomination for his role in “Drive,” but many still expected to see his name in the supporting actor category this year. However, that wasn’t the case – he was replaced by Max von Sydow of “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.”
Iranian film “A Separation” was a shoo-in for the foreign-language film category, but it was also nominated for best original screenplay – the first time a foreign film has done so since 2007′s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.”
This was not a good year for Steven Spielberg – “War Horse” was nominated in the best picture category, but he was left off the best director list and his “The Adventures of Tintin” was not nominated for best animated film.
Ryan Gosling may be watching from home next month – despite earning praise for roles in “Drive” and “The Ides of March,” he did not receive any nominations.

BREAKING – So Who Shall Produce The 2012 Academy Awards?

2flashgames.com

THIS JUST IN FROM TMZ. WHY NOT GET SOMEONE WITH TV EXPERIENCE???

Brian Grazer — who produced “Apollo 13″ and “A Beautiful Mind” — has taken Brett Ratner’s place to produce next year’s Academy Awards show.

Brian signed on moments ago, agreeing to replace Ratner just one day after the “Rush Hour” director resigned …. following uproar over a homophobic slur Ratner dropped at a film screening.

Academy prez Tom Sherak announced Grazer’s appointment this afternoon.

Interestingly, Grazer is listed as a producer on “Tower Heist” — a film directed by Brett Ratner and starring Eddie Murphy, who resigned as the Oscars host just hours ago.
