Oscars 2012

Post  queenofdenile on Sat Oct 22, 2011 12:36 am

I don't think we had this topic open yet even at the old thread, did we? It's almost November and the baity movies are finally coming out!

Anyway, I'm going to make an obvious prediction that Elizabeth Olsen will get recognition for Martha Marcy May Marlene, and I hope Melissa McCarthy can get a supporting nod for Bridesmaids.

I wasn't big on the choice of Eddie to begin with, but my main concern was Ratner as a producer. Now that they're both out, I'm actually a bit excited about the whole thing again.

Yeah, I'm kind of delighted that they're both gone. Here's hoping that they pick someone good for at least the hosting slot.

NPH, because he should just host everything.

If I say "Stephen Colbert" in the mirror three times, will that make him host the Oscars?

They will never let him, but I'd love to see Chris Rock do it again.

I am actually a bit sad about Murphy? I think he wastes his talent but he has a lot of it. I was curious to see him in a situation like that which is probably as close to stand up as hes been in twenty years.

Co-signed.

Also glad Ratner and Murphy are gone. This was going to be the first year in forever that I wasn't going to watch the Oscars. Now I can.

Ooooh, how about Colbert, with Jon Stewart and Steve Carrell?

Even Stev/phen, anyone? Montages, for or against?

I don't think Eddie was ever really planning on hosting the awards. On every talk show he's been on recently to promote Tower Heist, he seemed to have this look in his eyes like "wow, I can't believe they think I'm going to go through with this." whenever he was asked about hosting. I think he agreed just to help out the movie and then would have dropped out anyway. Ratner being his usual charming self just made it easier.

How about NPH and Hugh Jackman? And muppets.

I was curious what Murphy would even BE like as Oscar host, since he hasn't been anything but Donkey and a career-joke in my pop-culture consuming life time.

Given that bizarre choice, I have NO idea who to expect as a replacement.

Well he has had flashes of that former genius with stuff like Bowfinger and Dreamgirls. I keep hoping with him and I have no idea why. He makes so much crap. But I was like maybe this will be like Raw!

Every time I try to talk about Grazer, I get this sense that I'm damning him with faint praise because the best I can usually say about him is that he's good at his job. I can't think of any movie or TV show he's been involved with (other than Arrested Development which was more Ron Howard than Grazer) that really knocked my socks off. Which is why I really hate the idea that he's the one in charge of The Dark Tower.

But producing the Oscars? He should be able to knock that out in his sleep and still do a better job than Ratner would have.

To steal from Ben Schwartz tweet, Entertainment 720 is the only logical choice to produce the Oscars.

ME TOOOO. So much on both of these. I think part of Chris Rock's problem was he had the awful year where they made the technical people accept their awards in the aisles (which was the producers' dumb, insulting decision).

The Oscars could always go host-free and maybe finish on time, but that's even less likely than Chris Rock coming back.

If Colbert hosted, I think it'd be interesting to see what his character does differently at a show he can't be nominated for, as opposed to the Emmys.

Haha! The lights would randomly dim throughout the show so that the theater could turn into a massive dance club. That would be AWESOME!

I didn't know people hated Eddie Murphy so much! I was really excited to see him hosting, and now I'm bummed. He's had kind of a string of terrible movies since 1999, only coming up for air with Bowfinger and Dreamgirls, but. . .is that the only reason people hate him so much? Not that it's not a valid reason to be relieved he isn't hosting the Oscars, I'm just surprised by the vehemence of it. Did he do something untoward (picking up a tranny hooker to cheat on your wife with is not great, but it's not kicking kittens) I don't know about? Asking honestly.

(Delirious! Raw! "HAFF, EEEDDDIE." Beverly Hills Cop! Buckwheat sings! Too hot in the hot tub! Trading Places! Coming to America! I know those were all in the 80s, but. . .so were the Muppets!)

Yeah I feel similarly. I mean I think he wastes his talent but I do keep hoping he'd channel it well again.

I think he lost a lot of goodwill when he knocked up Scary Spice and refused to acknowledge paternity and when he left the Oscars mid-ceremony when he lost for Dreamgirls. But mostly I think it's that, because of all the bad movies, people just don't think he's funny anymore.

That was pretty heinous I agree.

I love the Muppets but I can't see them hosting the Oscars. I feel bad about it but I just can't.

Yeah, I used to love Eddie Murphy, and the commercials for Tower Heist made me laugh, but those two incidents totally put me off of him. I wasn't looking forward to him hosting mostly because I haven't seen him do anything funny in a while.
