    They frigging hate James Cameron. And now he knows just how much. They hate him so much they voted for a woman.

     
    • snarkysmachine 5:01 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Which is how Cameron justifies this crushing defeat to himself.

    • hsofia 5:02 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      why do they hate him?

      Wow, nice job, Snarkysmachine.
      And also, he came out and was like, “Look, the winner is The Hurt Locker. Bye.”

    • elfboots 5:00 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      And James Cameron is disappointed. And possibly disapproving.

      • Kate Harding 5:00 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        But what does Clooney think?

        • littlem 6:20 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Personally I don’t think George was thinking at all. Did anyone ever find out what was in that flask?

      Is that bearded guy the lost son of John Lennon?

      • thirtiesgirl 5:01 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        And why did he have that grabby hold on Ms. Big’s arm? That was kind of disturbing.

        • Kate Harding 5:02 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I was just about to type LET GO OF HER ARM when he finally did.

        • Quiwi 5:03 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I noticed that too! Major WTF right there, let her go!

          • thirtiesgirl 5:04 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            It was like he was holding her away from the mic and then pulling her to it when he was done and ready for her to speak. Or am I just imagining things?

          I don’t know, seemed like she was having a hard time breathing–maybe he was helping??

        I am praying you’re 6/6, and that this doesn’t mean Avatar’s getting best pic now.

      Yay I was rooting for her.

    • Paula 4:56 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      FUCK YEAH!!!! Let’s ask James Cameron how HE feels about her winning.

      • Suezette 4:57 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        he was cheering–good for him

        • Paula 5:00 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I just meant that there was soooo much bullshit about there being some big competition between them and KB always being asked about him even though they’ve been divorced a million years.

    • thirtiesgirl 4:57 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I’m so glad Ms. Bigs won… but that can only mean Cameron’s taking best picture. She’s trumping her evil ex-hubs…only sort of.

    • Thornacious 4:57 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      And JamCam stood up right away – thank you, Scary Scary-Looking Man for doing your part to quell all the stupid “grudge match” gossip.

        Too bad he has to turn in his balls now, though.

    Sandra Bullock. No surprise, but still. Drat.

     
    • Kate Harding 4:49 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      OK, her opening line was funny.

      • Kate Harding 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        And now she’s being classy and shit.

        • Elysia 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Some small consolation, I guess. Still disappointed.

        • stitchtowhere 4:51 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          yes on both counts. her opener was endearing and acknowledging the other actors is admirable.

      • Suezette 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        whole speech has been good

    • elfboots 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Seriously?? What a crock.

    • drst 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Aw but she shouts out to Gabby right off the bat plus all the others. That was classy.

    • moosemuse 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I think she knows she doesn’t deserve it. And for that alone I continue to love her (despite her shitty movie choices).

      • elfboots 4:52 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Oh, I like *her*, I just think she’s vastly outclassed in this category, that’s all.

    • thirtiesgirl 4:51 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I’m disappointed.

      And now there’s crying!

    • hsofia 4:51 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I haven’t seen this movie, so I have to ask if she was any good? And was the movie? The movie commercials just looked so hokey to me.

      • Kate Harding 4:52 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Put it this way: As Jill from Feministe just said on Twitter, “Sandra Bullock seems like a very nice lady. However. I am tired of White Lady Saves the Day, The Movie. “

        • hsofia 4:56 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          That’s what I thought, but I’d been so confused by all the love for it from people I thought ought to know better.

          • AmpleCurves 4:59 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            I saw it expecting it to be White Lady Saves the Day, but it was actually a lot better than I was expecting. And Sandra Bullock legit did a good job, which is not to say she deserves to beat out these other actresses, but still….

    • Paula 4:54 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I’m pissed off. Sandra Bullock is nice enough but what kinda stretch is it for an actress to play the rich white woman who saves the poor black kid?

    • riotsnotdiets 4:57 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I was disappointed, but that speech was just super classy and kinda made me cry… and I refuse to see this movie (white woman as savior is played the f out)… also, when she started saying “there is no color, no creed, no sexual orientation,” etc., I totally thought she was going to go all “colorblind” on us, but then she didn’t (finishing with “more deserving” or whatever it was that she said). So, that wasn’t as bad as I thought it was gonna be.
