Oscar Tweets

Here are some highlights from my Academy Awards-night Tweets.

(If you're not following me on The Twitter, then shame on you.*)
  • Just saw Ben Snow on The Television
  • Just saw David Hisanaga, John Walker and Aaron McBride from @ilmvfx on The Television.
  • Here is one reason why our work on "Iron Man 2" by @ILMVFX was nominated for an Oscar.
  • Warren Beatty looks like he'd rather be anywhere other than where he is right now.
  • Oh, dear, why would they put George Hamilton's corpse on TV? Oh, that's Valentino. Nevermind.
  • Oh, I remember when Nicole Kidman was human.
  • Hugh Jackman: Movie Star.
  • Hugh Jackman is cool even in crummy movies.
  • I'm two for two tonight. (In my predictions.)
  • Robert Stromberg, former vfx artist, now has two Academy Awards for Art Direction. Yeahhh!!!!
  • I'm six out of seven.
  • I'm still a bit amazed that there are TWO categories for sound.
  • James Franco: "Congratulations, nerds," on the Technical Academy Awards. I don't know how to feel about that one.
  • My instinct was, 'eff you, Franco.'
  • That's, **Academy Award Winning Film** "The Wolfman."
  • Just saw Florian Kainz from ILMVFX on The Television.
  • You played off Aaron Sorkin, but had time for Auto-Tune the movies?
  • Technical Oscars shot = too many white dudes. And this is coming from a mostly-white dude.
  • A standing ovation for Billy Crystal - if that's not a huge rebuke of tonight's show, nothing is.
  • Yeah, The Predictinator nails it.
  • I'm happy The Predictinator got it right. But I'm sad that our work on "Iron Man 2" didn't win.
  • I'm sticking with "eff you Franco" on the "Congratulations, nerds," quip.
  • Darn - I screwed up Best Director. I guess I really really really wanted Fincher to get it.
  • Nailed it. Now I'm 17/23.
  • (For Best Actor) British + cripple + crying = guess who will win?
  • Hey, @jamesfranco. The five nominated visual effects films earned $3.5 billion dollars. So that's what nerds did.
  • Showing my work: Alice-$1.024B, HP71-$948M, Inception-$823M, IronMan2-$622M, Hereafter-$101M = $3.518B. Data from
  • Final tally - I predicted 18 out of 24 categories.

*Just kidding. It's just that I've been so busy lately, I haven't had time to post here on FXRant. So crummy Tweets will have to do for now.

You know, they could've easily made the Oscars more hip by losing all the formal wear.
