9:06 pm — 

Kristin get off stage. Seth you can stay if you do a Stewie impersonation.

His wife looks like an old Fergie.

8:59 pm —

8:58 pm — 

Argo wins Best Picture.

8:57 pm — 

A little late, but Daniel Day-Lewis had a great tux.

8:56 pm — 

Your arms looks great as usual. She is the coolest First Lady I think we’ve ever had.

8:55 pm — 

We adore you, Michelle!

8:54 pm — 

Jack Nicholson always goes to the Lakers games.

8:30 pm —

7:17 pm — 

Best Sound Editing*

7:16 pm — 

Best Sound Mixing is a tie between Zero Dark Thirty and Skyfall.

One thing’s for sure, she isn’t lip syncing.

7:00 pm — 

Jennifer Hudson should have won a Nobel Peace Prize for her role in Dream Girls. She deserves all the awards.

Jennifer Hudson.

6:58 pm — 

Catherine Zeta Jones almost looks like Reba McEntire at some points.

6:56 pm —

So far, so good for Seth.

5:53 pm — 

Octavia Spencer’s dress carries itself beautifully on stage.
