At this time, many young Iranians all over this world are watching us, and I imagine them to be very happy. They are happy not just because of an important award, or a film or a filmmaker, but because at the time, in talk of war, intimidation and aggressions exchanged between politicians, the name of their country, Iran, is spoken here through her glorious culture — a rich and ancient culture that has been hidden under the heavy dust of politics. I proudly offer this award to the people of my country. A people who respect all cultures and civilizations, and despise hostility and resentment.

Iranian film director ASGHAR FARHADI, on accepting his Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, A Separation (via inothernews)

Surprise, surprise: The Tree of Life and Emmanuel Lubezki lost cinematography. In my mind, that seems impossible; in the Academy’s mind, a day at the office.

Ryan Seacrest gets owned by Adm. Gen. Aladeen when he ACCIDENTALLY pours Kim Jong Il’s ashes all over Seacrest. Aladeen was carrying out one of Kim Jong Il’s final wishes: to have his ashes scattered on the red carpet at the Oscars. Kim Jong Il was known to be a huge movie buff of course.
If you were to ask Ryan Seacrest who he is wearing tonight, you’d have to say, well, Kim Jong Il. Hahahaha

I suppose I should follow up with what I posted earlier today. Apparently, The Academy is now welcoming Adm. Gen. Aladeen (above) on the red carpet Sunday. Previously, it had reservations, and it was reported that Cohen wasn’t going to be allowed to show up as the character. Looks like they can’t resist the ratings potential, heh.
I don’t really have a problem with this. Sometimes I think people take the Oscars too seriously. The show’s already a huge ad for movies.

I predict… that by the time I wake up in the morning, The Tree of Life will have an Oscar nomination for best cinematography.

That prediction is basically equivalent, in soundness, to “the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom” being the basis for 1 second of time.

Ah, the consistency and assurances of science. Nice to see Malick got a best director nod and The Tree of Life was nominated for best picture, but I have a feeling the only thing ToL will win is cinematography.
