Best Foreign Language Film: "A Separation" (Iran).
First movie from Iran's booming film industry to win the Oscar.
I believe "A Separation" is on tap to play soon at the Darkside.
Here comes Christian Bale. Will he require subtitles?
Bale's presenting Best Supporting Actress.
Three for Hugo and a fourth likely coming right up.
A nice shout-out to the Oscar-blocked Thelma Schoonmaker.
Sound Mixing: "Hugo," as McInally prophesied.
One hour in and eight Oscars awarded. Not a bad pace at all, but one that's likely to flag a bit.
And commercials are too loud as well, but I thought Congress was going to take care of that.
It's four Oscars for Hugo, and one each for A Separation, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Artist, Dragon Tattoo and Iron Lady.
It's a shame Oingo Boingo weren't
nominated for "Weird Science."
I loved Oingo Boingo, and I thought Weird Science was a terrific song.
And now Danny Elfman just churns out soundtracks.
My personal favorite use of Oingo Boingo in a movie was "Fast Times at Ridgemont High's" placement of "Goodbye, Goodbye."
For the record, the Kodak Theatre is now called the Hollywood & Highland Center.
The Kodak Theater gag is quickly becoming the funniest running gag of the night.
Billy Crystal has become Buddy Young, Jr.
Gwyneth Paltrow and a "crashing" Robert Downey, Jr. to present Best Documentary.
