Okay, another potential Oscar-winning treatment punched into my BlackBerry. We now return to our regularly scheduled preening, already in progress.
Best Original Score: Social Network wins again. If I’m the Coen Bros., I’m getting a little nervous. Do they have true grit? Which, by the way, had a great score by Carter Burwell, who never gets any recognition. It’s okay, Carter, you can work with me.
Inception wins for Sound Mixing. Well, it was noisy.
Sound Editing. Never have been quite sure what this one is for. Inception wins again. Probably should watch it again. Would rather watch Scarlett.
Everybody loves Chris Nolan. I love Chris Nolan. Chris, call me when you need punch-up.
Makeup? Writers don’t need no stinkin’ makeup! Rick Baker wins again for The Wolfman. Rick Baker always wins for The Wolfman.
Costumes, ditto. I wear the same thing to every meeting. Literally. Alice in Wonderland beats True Grit. The fix is definitely in.
Was that President Obama plugging the amanuensis’s novel, As Time Goes By? I do believe it was. Thanks, Mr. President, even if you were talking about the song.
Shorts? Shorts? Don’t even wear ‘em. Back in a few.
