I am: I've got pretzels and white Zinfandel. Let's do this.

The Hurt Locker wins Best Picture! Six Oscars! Really really great! I am happy… That the show is over. Good night guys, sorry for the tech issues, thanks for being here!

11:55
Kathryn Bigelow wins Best Director. History is made. "This is the moment of a lifetime," she says.

11:52
It was Sandra Bullock's year. It's "her time." That's what everybody said, and it's true, now. I shall watch All About Steve on demand to celebrate.

I liked when The Dude said, "Roger Love, man. Thank you guys."

Kate Winslet is stunning. The Oscar goes to Jeff Bridges, of course. It seems like media speculation has really taken the surprise out of the show. No upsets, no gasps.



11:15

How fun would it be to go out drinking with Pedro and Quentin?
I want to see A Prophet. Entertainment Weekly gave it an A.

Best Foreign Language Film: El Secreto De Sus Ojos

Best Documentary: The Cove.

Best Film Editing: The Hurt Locker.

11:02

The boyfriend went to lie down, and I can't say I blame him. This show has been predictable and… un-lively, not that that's a word.

Oh: But if you make Oscar LOLs, like this, and post them in the comments or email them to me (dodai@jezebel.com), I'll post them at some point. You can use the Clooney gallery and the ROFLBOT!

10:53

Best Original Score: Michael Giacchino, Up.

Best Visual Effects: Avatar

My Firefox quit after I made a screenshot of Sam Worthington. COINCIDENCE?

It's cool that The Hurt Locker has won something, that way it can be an "Oscar nominated winning film," no matter what happens later. (Winning. I mean WINNING.)

Two WTFs: Why are there so many stairs on the stage, and why do they make women in voluminous dresses and high heels walk down them? Also: Playing "Thank Heaven For Little Girls" when Carey Mulligan and Zoe Saldana enter is fucking bullshit.

Question: What are Kathy Ireland's qualifications? Besides having clothing at K-Mart?

All of these women look amazing. Penny Cruz is one of my girlcrushes! And Mo'Nique is regal tonight.
