4:00 AM
This year it was all scrambled up.
@MattD He did a beautiful job.
 
@Catija He's a musician I have nothing but the utmost respect for.
 
But nice idea to let some guy play live to it.
 
@NapoleonWilson That would be Dave Grohl, drummer for Nirvana, and lead singer of Foo Fighters.
 
@MattD Uhuh.
 
user139252
@NapoleonWilson Thank you for the welcome!
 
4:01 AM
@MattD It's one of the few times I've heard a cover for the first time and not been disturbed by it being "wrong"...
 
user139252
I was just checking in to see if anything was being said about the Awards, as I currently lack cable :P
 
@Catija Grohl has tons of respect for music and is incredibly talented himself. Doesn't surprise me.
 
@TheBrownOne But it's not on cable, it's on broadcast in the US... you don't have regular TV channels?
 
@Catija He may not have an antenna.
Superman!
 
you may also be able to watch it on abc.go.com/watch-live
(you might not; I can't.)
 
4:03 AM
Kids... Look hw cute!
Apple Boxes!
Wow, a full apple on top of a half apple.
 
I feel shitty that I had to look up scores Horner did, and I should feel shitty for that.
 
@MattD He really had a thing for steeldrums in the 80s. I noticed that if there's anything steeldrummy in the 80s, it's actually from Horner indeed. But he did make millions of things in general anyway.
 
Are all of the people with the trophies female this year? And all wearing white...
 
Welp, looks like I won't be watching Walking Dead tonight.
 
Wait... they just read stats for the country not the producer? That's interesting.
Indiana Jones!
Biden... wha?
 
4:09 AM
Wut?
 
Indiana Jones for Joe Biden.
 
Wow... they're all standing up...
Always self-depreciating.
 
Biden's a good guy.
 
Yes. And he's happy to laugh at himself. And he loves trains.
 
Oh my, that whole collage consent thing?
 
4:11 AM
Wow.
 
Oh, seems they really loved Lady Gaga last time.
 
I don't care for most of her pop stuff, but she's a damn talented musician.
 
Her earpiece is covered in diamonds...
 
Hmm, now it becomes apparent why they were in such a hurry at the beginning. So...when does Trump appear...or, I don't know, the Dalai Lama?
 
Now I know why Pharrell wears those hats.

Q: Name of a movie? Dont know the genre

SashaI watched this movie many years ago. The genre could be drama or thriller, I dont know for sure. A young woman falls in love with a older man. I think she worked as a waitress in a small restaurant. However the man later appears to be married. He also visits the younger woman at her house but h...

 
Hmmmmmm, tough category for me.
 
Hmm, I didn't really recognize The Force Awakens as that interesting or significant beyond the original Star Wars soundtrack, which is great, but well, which we also know already.
 
Would like Hateful to get it, but Star Wars could take it.
YAAAY!
 
He deserves it.
 
Wasn't even Eastwood handing the honorary award back then and translating to Italian for him?
 
4:23 AM
This was Moricone's first score for a western film in 34 years, and the first Tarantino film to use an original score.
 
Wow, are you saying it's more than 10 years that I watch this thing now?
 
Elfman is creepy looking.
 
Glory.
 
Morricone is 87!
 
But I wonder why they didn't let all the nominees perform.
 
4:26 AM
I was rooting for Everything is Awesome last year as I hadn't seen Glory, but when they performed it last year I was all yeah, if that doesn't win the Academy is dumb and deserves whatever hate is thrown their way.
Swear to GOD if 50 Shades gets a fucking Oscar I'm done.
 
Oh, so Lady Gaga was actually a nominee presentation? Well, that makes way more actual sense. I thought that was just some unrelated performance.
 
There were no upbeat songs this year.... that's why. They're all dull.
 
@NapoleonWilson Same here, but now I'm pretty okay with it. Before I thought it was pretty hamfisted.
 
@MattD Yeah, I'm not a big hiphop/R&B enthusiast, but Glory was pretty good.
 
And man, two Bond movies in a row now that win for original song.
 
4:28 AM
@MattD Exactly.
 
@NapoleonWilson Glory was more a soul song, only slightly hip hop.
 
Woah... there's no top on that dress.
 
Oh my word he's there as Ali G.
 
@MattD Meh, tomayto tomahto, pretty hiphoprnby to me actually. ;-P
 
Poor Olivia.
 
4:29 AM
Oh, back when Baron Cohen actually peaked?
 
Wooooooow.
 
Ugh... that was bad.
 
And that for the awfully serious Room? Honestly?
 
Had to have the last word...
 
Um, I'm not a huge political correctness guy, but no, even I gotta call that tasteless, and I like Ali G.
 
4:32 AM
I love Macy.
 
Yep, lame and too easy.
Shiiiiit I need to get back on House of Cards.
 
@MattD Do they have a 4th season already?
 
@NapoleonWilson Premieres March 4.
 
Wut? Is that Claire Huxtable in Creed?
 
Star Wars!
 
4:35 AM
They should have tried to do a SW ST mashup.
 
Nerds would go mad. I'd be happy as hell.
 
Now with interviews? Like that!
 
C'moooooon Mad Max!
 
Saw that one coming.
 
Yeah, figured that's who'd get it.
 
4:38 AM
Well, both director's movies.
 
 
He don't give a F....
 
He does not.
 
When does the mic drop?
 
Haaaaa, they ran out of music!
 
4:40 AM
They used to suck the microphone down into the stage.
 
Snow on cold skin;
a wraith on his trail,
refusing the peace.
 
WTF... Linked In commercial for a NASA Astronaut?
 
Top Gun!
 
Take my Breath Away.
 
That's like, the epitome of 80s ballads.
 
4:44 AM
Yeah, they had that last year, too! \o/ (@steelerfan wish you were here!)
 
J. Law shouldn't win. She's great, but Joy was very meh as a film.
 
Haven't seen any of 'em unfortunately.
 
Me neither.
 
Ronan has done well for herself.
 
Bit awards are gettin' real serious, eh? 'S like only actor and movie remaining. :'(
 
4:48 AM
Big Rock Candy Mountain?
 
I dunno.
Apparently she locked herself in a room for a month to prep for the role.
 
Bond
 
Goldfinger!
 
And the other thing?
 
Man, few years ago when they got Shirley Bassey to come in and sing that. So good.
Was actually the first year my wife and I started dating. I remember texting her while watching with friends and she was watching with her roommate.
 
4:50 AM
@MattD Was the same year Adele won, the 50th anniversary I think.
 
@NapoleonWilson I believe so.
This Cadillac commercial can piss off.
 
Mrs. Robinson! :D
 
The Graduate!
My mom has a friend who's last name is Robinson. Soooooo many jokes about that between me and her.
She actually got me a card based on the movie for either high school or college graduation. Can't remember which one.
 
Oooh, interesting "Gender confirmation surgery"...
 
Wait, 4 of them were actually real.
 
4:53 AM
Space Pirate!
 
Yeah, that movie was so damn good.
 
.... oh well.
 
Aaaaaaand everyone can shut up now.
 
Well, there it is.
@steelerfan Rejoice!
Well, we'll just see it as a lifetime achievement Oscar, ok? ;-)
 
... he's only 41...
Wow.
 
5:00 AM
Oh.
 
Yeah, wow.
 
Wait... who picked that?
 
Heh.
Not seen Mr. Rock for quite some time actually.
 
I think I picked Spotlight to win, but wanted Martian personally.
 
Well, someone got it right. I don't remember what I picked any more.
And now I have to go to sleep.
Or Andy will yell at me.
 
5:03 AM
Um, it's like 23:00 at your place.
 
@NapoleonWilson Yeah. But I have work now.
 
Yeah, I may watch Venture Bros then go to bed. Only to wake up and eventually have to go on an interview I really don't want to go to.
Night all.
 
Hmm, I don't know, Chris Rock certainly improved my opinion about him a bit. Other than that, hmm, well, a bit, I don't know, forgettable? Meh. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anyway...
I want to thank everyone who participated in our Oscar chat event this year and wish you a good night!
Now I have my third whisky glass still half full (or half empty?). They rushed that quite a little towards the end, no?
And I'm probably already doing soliloquy. @steelerfan where are you? :'(
 
5:21 AM
Miss you, don't wanna go to sleep.
@NapoleonWilson I'm glad I fired that for the Director thing and didn't wait for Best Picture. Who'd have guessed the friggin' Spotlight, though.
@Catija By the way, how to see the results? (And thanks again for all your efforts.)

6:34 AM
@NapoleonWilson wow i missed it again this year :(
Better luck next time
 
7:16 AM
Priyanka Chopra will portray the main antagonist in the film adaptation of Baywatch, directed by Seth Gordon, co-starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, and Alexandra Daddario.
People still want Baywatch O-o
 
 
1 hour later…
8:46 AM
@AnkitSharma Don't complain, it's going to have Alexandra Daddario in.
Leo didn't deserve the award for Best Actor and I'l' fight the lot of you if I have to.
 
@DrRDizzle She has pretty face, that's it , nothing else and I do love acting of Priyanka Chopra (she is versatile and one of my fav from India). But i am not into Baywatch
@DrRDizzle I don't give a dam to Oscar and you missed Oscar chat event to discuss this ;P
 
@AnkitSharma Go and watch the first season of True Detective and then try to tell me "she has pretty face, that's it".
@AnkitSharma I was asleep, time zones meant the awards were being handed out around about 2:00AM here.
 
@DrRDizzle I have not seen that but i have seen her in the kid version of clash of titans
ohhh...its called Percy Jackson and his lame demigod friends
@DrRDizzle Anyways i do think she is hot and have sexy eyes

Q: Has The Academy ever addressed the issue with acting categories being gender separated?

Chanandler BongActing categories are separated by gender since they have been established (1929 for leading role and 1936 for supporting). I've seen several articles questioning keeping this gender separation on the basis of equal rights (ex. this or this). I'm wondering if the accusations of sexism have ever ...

 
@AnkitSharma She's bae.

Q: it is a movie about african american officer set on a somewhat wild west theme

Hong Yun Kimit is not a newest film, felt like it was made around 60~90ies. not a black&white, but a color. The main plot is that in an intelligent african american officer who wears suit(attorney? detective? not sure) come to investigate series of crime, despite of cynical attitudes of town people about a...

Chanandler BongIn Hitchcock's Strangers On A Train when Bruno visits Guy after murdering his wife the latter wants to go the police.

@AnkitSharma hiyia
 
9:39 AM
@ToshinouKyouko So what's going on
 
@AnkitSharma Got a question about the film Bahubali: The Beginning. Would I be right in saying this doesn't count as science fiction or fantasy?
 
@randal'thor Its about a fictional setting of war between a kingdom and tribe
Anyways we already have that question
twice or thrice
 
@AnkitSharma working, every day
 
@ToshinouKyouko weekend too?
 
9:48 AM
@AnkitSharma Ah well. Thanks anyway :-)

Q: Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?

Eddin NomarIn Baahubali: The Beginning (2015), why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? I saw the movie 2 times, still it remains a doubt in my mind. Is there any indication in the film why he would do that?

 
I've been in 9-7 for the last 15~ days :(
at least I'm racking up holiday days
I missed an entire film festival because of it though :(
wanted to watch some mooviz
 
@ToshinouKyouko which festival?
 
diff.ie Dublin International Film Festival
 
ohhhh
Never been part of any
 
9:54 AM
there's always the Japanese Film Festival in Mayish though, which is more up my street
 
@randal'thor I do think its fantasy but not sure
Is it not historical fiction= fantasy ?
 
It's not a big affair over here really, just watch a film - but they usually have someone associated giving some talk before/after
which can be very interesting
there's a special word for them
 
hmmm.....
Sounds exciting
 
@AnkitSharma Historical fiction isn't necessarily fantasy. Something like Wolf Hall certainly wouldn't count as fantasy.
 
@AnkitSharma did I tell you about my star wars experience?
 
9:57 AM
@ToshinouKyouko no, i am not getting much time to come over anime.chat this days
 
@AnkitSharma :'(
anyway, I went to see starwars and bought my ticket, but then i got to the cinema and the guy was like "there's no screening now"
 
@ToshinouKyouko i got my second diamond this month and need to enhance my programming skills too
@ToshinouKyouko what :O
 
so i talked to another guy and he was like "just go in here" and it was a big corporate event for HP
so everyone thought I worked for HP and I got loads of free sweets and popcorn and stuff :D
 
@randal'thor I am too confused with genre division, so not that good person for the topic.
@ToshinouKyouko Wow
 
it was great
endless popcorn
 
10:01 AM
hahahahahha
Nothing good then popcorn with a film
@SQB As per google, "Fantasy is a genre of fiction that uses magic or other supernatural elements as a main plot element, theme, or setting. ", there was no magic in the film and no supernatural stuff either. — Ankit Sharma 48 secs ago
It can be migrated but end result will be duplicate close
 
@AnkitSharma Maybe that's the best option? Then it'll improve M&TV's Bahubali searchability rather than SFF's, and won't set a precedent for people asking about that film on SFF.
 
@randal'thor On a trivial knowledge one user even asked the same question over Hinduism.se , even when this film has nothing to do with religion and asking for the story of the film.
This inspired me to ask my first baahubali question

Q: How much of the film Baahubali: The Beginning is inspired from actual history of India?

Ankit SharmaI have heard that the name and places of Baahubali: The Beginning are taken from real history. But I have also heard that its quite inspired from Mahabharata for the character of Kattappa which is inspired from Bhishma and it did felt like that. So how much of the film is based on actual history ...

Q: Movie where a woman is laying in a bed covered in spider webs and then attacks a man

Victoria GonzalezI saw a movie for about ten years ago. The only scene I remember is when a man climbs up a tower and sees a woman laying in a bed covered in spiderweb. He thought she was dead, but when he looked in the mirror the woman is suddenly standing behind him and attacks. I think she is a vampire.

 
@NapoleonWilson Wow!! I guess that I should have tried to come in here lastnight. You were drinking and talking to yourself again, I see. Haha! Dammit! Sorry I missed it!! I'm here now!!
 
@steelerfan Only when everyone already left. :'(
 
@NapoleonWilson Awww, aren't you just too adorable. I would have come in if I could. I didn't get home until midnight and then I crashed :(
I had to go get a flight so that I could console my boyfriend and fly back home. I mean, I was busy! ;)
I'm not even going to watch the Oscars. My sister told me that it was lame and forgettable and that they stayed on the diversity thing too much. She said Lady Gaga was good. I'm just glad DiCaprio won. I know that I'm in the minority.
 
@steelerfan Sums it up well, I guess.
 
@NapoleonWilson Yeah, I have no reason to watch it now. I'm not watching anything this morning because I don't really care about who was best dressed and an Oscar fashion breakdown ;)
 
3:18 PM
Hehe!
 
Chris Rock was good, though?
 
@steelerfan Better than I had expected based on his previous moderation.
Though, he disappeared quite a bit towards the end.
In general it felt yet again a bit rushed. I don't think that initiative of shortening the whole thing that they started some years ago was really a good idea.
 
I have liked him since SNL. He has always been funny.
 
Neither did they really include any additional show acts, like e.g. a performance of all the nominated scores as they did some years ago. Or stuff like that.
 
Well, my sister said it was rushed and then it was drawn out for speeches by the Vice President and the President of the academy or something.
I knew that Chris Rock was gonna make jokes about the diversity thing, but it sounds like that was what he stuck with all night.
 
3:25 PM
Indeed, apart from girl scouts.
 
I don't know. It kinda feels like if Will Smith gets nominated next year it will have an asterisk next to it. I don't know, just my opinion I guess ;) I'm kinda sick of hearing about it and I didn't even watch the Oscars.
So, we are finding out when we are going to Vegas today!!! Woot!! My dad should be calling me in a few hours!!
 
@steelerfan You mean like some years ago where they also complained heavily and suddenly Will Smith, Halle Berry and Sidney Portier all won?
@steelerfan Oh.

Q: Why does Reid carry a revolver?

T.J.L.Sometime in Season 4, Reid changes his standard carry piece from a semi-automatic pistol (like all the other agents) to a revolver. I found plenty of speculation as to why, but nothing solid. Is there any indication - either on-screen or word-of-god - for why the character made such a change?

 
@NapoleonWilson Exactly. I don't think Will Smith won, but he was nominated. I would just feel like a complete ass if I were black and nominated next year. I would just feel like I didn't earn it. Meh. Oh, well ;)
@NapoleonWilson EXCITING!! WOOT!!
 
@steelerfan Oh, you're right, I thought he won. But lost to Denzel.
 
3:40 PM
@NapoleonWilson Will Smith didn't deserve a nomination this year anyways. Sorry, I really have no sympathy for him and his annoying wife. The guy from Creed was the one who deserved a nomination, IMO.
 
Haven't seen that football film yet anyway.
 
Meh. But, I have personal feelings about the subject matter, so I don't know. He didn't deserve a nomination for that role by any means. I really don't have sympathy for multi-millionaires.
 
@steelerfan Micheal B Jordan was so good in Creed.
 
@DrRDizzle Yeah. That's what I hear :)
 
@steelerfan Between him, director Ryan Coogler and a lack of Best Picture nomination, Creed must have been the most "snubbed" film of the night.
 
3:54 PM
@DrRDizzle Well, and Stallone not winning. I was a little shocked that he didn't win.
 
@steelerfan He probably deserved it, but at least he actually got a nomination. There was nothing for the rest of the film.
 
Wait. What won for best picture? The one about the priests abusing kids?
 
Spotlight, yes.
 
@steelerfan Yeah, Spotlight.
 
It was pretty good.
 
3:56 PM
As far as the "big" awards it was really all over the place.
 
I mean, it wasn't Mad Max: Fury Road, but...
 
I haven't seen it yet.
 
Which one?
 
Mad Max came away with the most wins at 6, but they weren't for any "big" categories. Mainly artistic and technical, though Ex Machina won for best VFX.
 
Spotlight.
 
3:57 PM
@MattD Mad Max: Fury Road deserved Best Picture and Best Director.
And I'll fight anyone that says otherwise, as long as I can beat them.
 
@MattD Not surprising. Did The Revenant win for cinematography?
 
@MattD Um, seriously, Ex Machina was really good, but you don't really need to give that film the VFX Oscar. Give it screenplay, or set design, or acting.
 
Maybe, but given how these awards shows usually go, it's not surprising it didn't win.
@steelerfan Yes.
 
@NapoleonWilson It did also have the best VFX of the year to be fair.
 
Roger Deakins got dicked again.
 
3:58 PM
With all the technical wins, I would even have bet on Dirtector for Fury Road.
 
@NapoleonWilson But yes, it definitely deserved other nominations.
 
@DrRDizzle I will arm wrestle you over it ;)
 
@DrRDizzle As in what?
 
@steelerfan How does one one even arm wrestle over the Internet?
 
I dunno, read an article last night that made a pretty good case for why Ex Machina winning what it did was good because the film had a crazy small budget of only $15 million.
 
3:59 PM
@NapoleonWilson As in CGI. The detail on Ava's body was incredible.
 
@steelerfan Indeed it did. Quite deserved IMHO, even if Fury Road would have been an equally good choice, I guess.
 
@NapoleonWilson It's the only thing that The Revenant deserved.
 
@DrRDizzle Haha! Good point. Well, I will be in England this fall. I will do it then! ;)
 
@steelerfan I'll get working on my arm wrestling technique.
 
@DrRDizzle Eh, but can't CGI do anything perfectly realistic nowadays anyway? Didn't really strike me as that groundbreaking. Meh, maybe I just didn't notice.
 
4:01 PM
@NapoleonWilson Definitely! Oh, and the director won too! WOW.
 
@NapoleonWilson What they were able to achieve on such a small budget is likely the impressive aspect.
 
@NapoleonWilson This was next level good though. I actually forgot that there was an actress playing Ava because I fully bought her as a machine.
That's a combination of great acting and spectacularly refined special effects.
 
Even though I've only seen stills and trailers, the VFX in Ex Machina looked better than some big budget VFX films I saw this year.
 
@MattD I see.
 
Even though they were all in technical categories, Mad Max absolutely deserved the recognition it got.
 
4:02 PM
@DrRDizzle I always forget that with every movie, because well, as I said, CGI is simply not distinguishable from reality nowadays in pretty much every film. But granted.
 
@MattD I don't know about that really. I mean, I love the film, but didn't it win an award for make-up?
Arguably, Mad Max: Fury Road should have gotten a VFX nod too.
 
Yeah, it won for hair and makeup against The Revenant and The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.
 
Wow. You guys really liked Mad Max, I see!
 
@MattD I can't think of any instance in Mad Max: Fury Road where there was particularly good make-up or hair.
 
Across all the awards last night, only Mad Max (6), The Revenant(3), and Spotlight (2) took home more than one award.
 
4:07 PM

Q: Title to a movie

JeniferMy son seen a movie the husband loses his wife and son and then seeks revenge

 
Yeah, neither can I.
 
@NapoleonWilson I see.
 
@MattD That's surely more costume than it is hair or makeup?
Like, the mask is the important part there.
 
@MovieReel Drgh, 3 minutes, only because I was distracted by chat.
 
4:09 PM
It was only up against two other movies, one of which was likely heavier on makeup, but it's more about world building, and in that end Mad Max achieved gloriously.
 
Also, is there an award for set design? Because Crimson Peak should have gotten that.
 
The only good thing about Crimson Peak was my boyfriend.
 
@DrRDizzle Sure there is, but that went to Fury Road, too.
 
That movie was stupid.
 
@steelerfan You didn't like Crimson Peak?
@steelerfan :O
@NapoleonWilson But Mad Max: Fury Road barely had sets!
 
4:11 PM
Hmm, I didn't get around to watching that yet. Me loves some classic gothic romance, though.
 
@DrRDizzle I liked Tom Hiddleston. No, I didn't like that movie :(
 
@DrRDizzle Well, it's Production Design, which is pretty much everything (including effing super cars).
 
@NapoleonWilson That part was good. Everything else wasn't that good.
@NapoleonWilson AND FLAME THROWING GUITARS!! ;)
There is a very good love scene with Tom Hiddleston and what's her face.
 
Looking at the numbers, Mad Max was up for 10 awards and snagged 6, for a 60% nomination to win outcome. The Revenant had the most at 12 but snagged a paltry 3, so only 25% nom to win ratio. Spotlight was up for 6 and snagged 2, for a 33% ratio.
 
@NapoleonWilson Ah, that explains it then.
 
4:17 PM
The Martian was the big loser of the night, with 7 nominations and 0 wins, followed by Carol with 6 and The Force Awakens with 5.
 
@MattD The Force Awakens had so many nominations?
 
It really sounds like I shouldn't watch this at all on my DVR.
 
@MattD Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn't deserve dick anyway. But I do really, really like The Martian, which I'm sure will have more longevity than The Revenant will.
 
Oh, I see, the whole sound and editing stuff, well the action movie categories that Fury Road sacked anyway.
 
@NapoleonWilson Original Score, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Film Editing, VFX.
 
4:20 PM
@steelerfan Meh, we've already discussed the important parts. The only thing worth from the actual show might be Mr. Rock's opening monologue then.
 
Roger Deakins is currently tied with George J. Folsey (who died in 1988) with 13 nominations for Best Cinematography and 0 wins.
 
@MattD Indeed.
Cinematographer is one of those thankless jobs noone ever cares about and where you then suddenly have people who surprisingly won like 3 awards already but you don't know their names at all.
 
Admittedly I don't really know too many cinematographers, but Roger Deakins usually sticks out to me. I really like his style.
It's just amazing that he's been recognized 13 times in his career and has never won. Sadly this year's competition was likely too stiff to overcome.
 
But that's probably the same for costumes and set design. "This is ...'s 6th nomination and 3rd win" - Wuuut?
And then people are up in arms when an actor wins his second Oscar.
 
@MattD I don't ever recognise his work, but whenever someone asks me about one of his films I'm always "Yeah, that was a really good looking film. Oh, it was Deakins?"
 
4:25 PM
Seems he made all the Coen stuff.
Oh Denis Villeneuve will do the Blade Runner sequel? Wow, that thing might get interesting despite the awful sequel-noone-ever-asked-for bytaste.
 
@NapoleonWilson Yeah. I'm really not in the mood to watch, anyways.
 
wow, fullhouse party
 
@steelerfan I missed that you said "shouldn't" instead of "should" anyway. ;-)
 
@NapoleonWilson He also did Spectre.
 
@MattD And Skyfall (or did you mean that)?
@AnkitSharma Yeah, half a day too late.
 
4:31 PM
hehehehhe
 
@AnkitSharma Yeah! Slacker! Did you have to like sleep or something? ;)
 
Timezone and yesterday night , i was stuck in watching lost
 
Wait. The James bond song won? Wut?
@AnkitSharma Well, I was working. My excuse is better ;)
 
@steelerfan Did you want Fifty Shades of Grey to get an Oscar?
 
@steelerfan hahahahahha
 
4:37 PM
@NapoleonWilson Hell no!! Lady Gaga maybe.
@NapoleonWilson Wait. Fifty shades of grey was nominated for something? Ugh.
 
@steelerfan The song. But as I said, it speaks for the Academy to nominate a (supposedly) good song even if the film is crap.
 
@NapoleonWilson Did you see the movie? It was beyond horrible. Well, I hated the book, too.
 
@NapoleonWilson Yeah, my bad.
 
@steelerfan No, and I don't have much intention to. (Though that Dakota Johnson gal's hot, I guess.)
@steelerfan You actually read that?
 
@NapoleonWilson She's really not that great. If you're gonna make a movie about sex, then the two characters should have some kind of chemistry.
 
4:46 PM
@steelerfan Well, that Grey guy seems quite cold and all, but I guess that was intentional anyway. Maybe they weren't supposed to have much chemistry?
 
@NapoleonWilson Yes. Unfortunately. I hated it. I just wanted to strangle Anastasia. I couldn't relate to her at all. Don't even get me started on Christian Grey. Ugh.
 
@steelerfan "I just wanted to strangle Anastasia." - Well...
 
@NapoleonWilson Yeah, but they are still infatuated with each other. There has to be something felt at least by her. It was pretty lame.
 
@steelerfan Granted.
 
@NapoleonWilson HAHA! Nice!
Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock have some of the best chemistry. That scene in The Lakehouse. Hot!
 
4:51 PM
@steelerfan Oh, I really like that film! Not the hugest romance enthusiast, but that was really good.
 
@NapoleonWilson I frigging LOVE that movie!! I love the two of them together. They are great together :)
My sister likes to compare me to Sandra Bullock character in that movie. She's pretty right on except for the Dr./nurse part ;)
 
Now I just need to find some time traveling letters in my mailbox ;)
 
Yeah, anyway. Looking forward to the 87th Academy Awards next year.
 
@NapoleonWilson Haha! You so funny, Napoleon :)
