My Oscar Texts

Here's a ceremony long text conversation between myself and Kyle. We were at different Oscar gatherings. Me being in New York, and him being in Florida, but with the constant back and forth, it felt like we were watching it together like we used to. Here's a few snippet from our so-called "Oscar commentary":

Kyle: Sorry you couldn't be here, but you will be watching with us.


Peter: Wow. Sooooo creepy. Hahaha.
Kyle: Yes. This will be the creepy Oscars.
Peter: Ummm... okay.

Peter: That was like some MTV opening montage. Younger Oscars!

Peter: Starting off with a very awkward acceptance speech for Art Direction.... nice. Sigh. Academy Award winner 'Alice In Wonderland'. 2 semi upsets so far... and we're off!
Kyle: Wow. Awesome. But does this bode well for 'The Social Network'?
Peter: I think so. I should've switched over. Regrets are starting. We'll know whenever film editing arrives.
Kyle: So glad for 'Inception' upset with cinematography. Willing to lose Oscar pool if 'Inception' continues to surprise.
Peter: But it's kinda sad Roger Deakins is still Oscarless, no?

Peter: I almost feel sad for Kirk Douglas. Maybe that's the point? A win for Leo!
Kyle: That's more like it. Douglas was awkward but memorable awkward. Like stories you tell about your kooky grandpa.
Peter: Uh...
Kyle: Love Franco's line to Melissa Leo. Felt like she was trying to make a moment. I think the F bomb was planned.
Peter: Yeah? Just judging from Leo's past speeches, maybe she's just that way. She her Spirit Award speech for 'Frozen River' a few years back.

Peter: And we're back on schedule in terms of winners with 'The King's Speech' winning only one so far.
Kyle: Umm... you think Seidler wrote that speech?

Peter: Props to Anne for throwing it all out there for a crappy, crappy number.

Peter: A ".com" shot out? A little low brow, no? That site is about to explode with traffic volume.
Kyle: On surface low brow, but really shows his admiration and dedication to the real life person.

Kyle: Wow. 'The King's Speech' weak again.
Peter: I sooo should have switched over for Best Picture. That montage clip for original score just made me more mad that Andrew Garfield was not nominated.

Kyle: Was Scarlett taking a nap in the back?
Peter: I think so.
Kyle: And next to McConaughey's tanning bed?

Kyle: Ugh. Burton reign of terror on the Oscars.
Peter: Also, 'Alice' has 2 Oscars. Someone here is asking why 'Lord of The Rings' is in the background after the winner's announced. I told them it's call bad producing.

Peter: This confirms it. All of Newman's songs sound the same.
Kyle: I think he wrote them all 12 years ago and just uses them as movies come up.
Peter: That Chuck guy and Mandy Moore are sounding (and looking) good.

Kyle: Best speech of the night.
Peter: I will gladly sit through another decade of crappy auto-tune for another one of those song montages.

Screen shot 2011-02-28 at 10.32.11 PM

Kyle: Franco seems high but I love his distant attitude though.
Peter: Me too. Took awhile for me to get used to. It kind of works with this "younger" Oscars.
Kyle: "You're all getting an Oscar!!!"

Screen shot 2011-02-28 at 10.32.28 PMScreen shot 2011-02-28 at 10.32.39 PM

Peter: I will always love the way Jennifer Hudson mispronounces the word 'nominees'. NUM-MEN-NEESE!
Kyle: Is Kathie Griffin singing?
Peter: I don't think so. It's supposedly "country sensation" Gwyneth Paltrow. I don't get it. She did awesome at the Grammys. What happened!?!!

Screen shot 2011-02-28 at 10.39.33 PM

Peter: Did Randy Newman just complain about having 2 Oscars? He won for his worst 2 songs!
Kyle: Is he doing a Sean Penn/ 'I Am Sam' impression?
Peter: Oh. Low! I think he sounds the same rather he's singing or not.

Screen shot 2011-02-28 at 10.42.47 PMScreen shot 2011-02-28 at 10.43.04 PM

Peter: Oh, Ms. Bigelow. What are you wearing!?!?! Wow. Hooper in it to win it.
Kyle: Wow. Can go to bed now. It's over.
Peter: Maybe 'The King's Speech' can squeak this out after all.
Kyle: C'mon, Inception!
Peter: Uh...
Kyle: Oh I know. Just wishin'.

Peter: The clip for Annette was more for Julianne than the actual nominee.
Kyle: Tinkerbell is nominated? (re: Williams)
Peter: Kudos to Natalie for naming crew! I so thought she was going to name my friend Tony, the script supervisor for 'Black Swan'.

Peter: Dance, Colin, Dance!
Kyle: What a very British speech.
Peter: Yeah. I said poise. Someone here said boring. LoL

Screen shot 2011-02-28 at 10.59.57 PM

Peter: There you go. 'The King's Speech' pulls it out. How about that?
Kyle: Not the sweep I expected, but it still got it. Okay, have to work at 4am. Have a good night!
Peter: Was fun and had fun!
Kyle: Good show.
Peter: Umm... sure. Night.
