Once again we go to Shaun Phillips executive producer of Yahoo! movies he joins us from LA shot and testing -- -- knowledge right here intravenous the -- what movie is that from.
I've been thinking about that since you mentioned that and I'm stump.
Spinal Tap it was and a lot of spinal taps album it's just like shots sandwich -- that -- I should totally know that we move on yeah.
-- -- -- -- There -- no Oscar for Spinal Tap by the way that's.
About yeah Oscars they had some oldies but goodies up this year are or we -- -- see the old time actors get thrown.
The awards because well it could be their last Iraq the title Julia and -- did it.
Help me narrow streets not only top isn't so great by the way she's a contender.
At today so great that it threw you off right you think it's Julia Child -- since there are some.
-- -- she was definitely phenomena in it's it's it's stuff you know it's the total over -- crowd there -- you know Sandra Bullock was the darling of sort of Olympic moment Olympic.
See what's on my mind of Oscar momentum there.
And you know everyone's loving her and she's actually she's such a cool sport that she's actually wanting to attend the -- as these you know known for the worst movies of the year the night before.
The night before perhaps the biggest night of her life so she's she's like.
She's an awesome lady it's tough not to embrace -- but like you said Meryl -- mean sixteen nominations all time that's incredible.
What is the impact of now ten movies nominated fare in the film of the year as opposed -- what we've previously seen is fine.
We know -- it means that it's sort of like gay.
Caribbean vacation resort it's all inclusive -- every every decent movie.
Is is in it you know from some surprises like district nine you had your -- sort of in the cool English fare like an education course -- the mega blockbuster avatar.
Hurt Locker right now sort of the Fave.
For me I'm -- glorious -- I think World War II was always a favorite of the academy voters so I'm thinking the Tarantino movie takes it.
Really over avatar.
Rabbits are hot right now I -- -- you guys conducted this poll around Oscars.
Why are you watching the show and only 101 excuse me 18% said that they.
Watch to see with the celebrities where that's a lie.
It is a bully -- because people did not want to appear as -- as I am because that is the only reason I watched to see what they're wearing -- evil activity.
And watch this thing this year aren't that.
That it should be I mean they've -- -- him in the ten.
The ten nominees for best picture are the majors is sort of the major -- the major difference to get people to watch it there it.
Whatever you like one of those movies there's no question that they're hoping that will add to the draw and then they got Steve Martin was hosted the Oscars before you Alec Baldwin is one of -- Any favorite new he's now comedian you know -- sort of he's one of the funniest guys on TV these days with thirty rock and Kabul Golden Globes under and -- under his you know sort of under his arm so.
They're gonna bring some entertainment going to be lots of surprises.
You know Mike -- said it's all about the ten nominees that was a huge move and it's it's kind of an interesting year to do it.
Because -- Though I thought the caliber of movies was kind of better across the landscape for the entire year.
Not sure there -- many.
Extra special movies so you know it's kind up for grabs I think.
Anything could win and that the Oscars sometimes like to surprise.
Sean what how much has this the -- you think of around the Hurt Locker they've been involved in a little bit scandal -- over the last few days.
Help them hurt them purposely done.
I you know I don't think on the it's gonna I think it's kind of funny that it's -- story I mean it was kind of unnecessary I'd say.
Again the movie had all the momentum -- one.
Best picture -- you know the Writers Guild the directors' guild awards.
So it was.
Yeah it was doing fine it was everyone was kind of behind it and interestingly enough it's the lowest money maker of any of those films you know came out in midsummer last year.
So yeah -- it's interesting to contrast -- -- avatar obviously the all time.
Biggest money maker.
You know in the history of the universe so a meeting Titanic James Cameron's own Titanic -- That's a fun story as well you know and then you got the Bigelow vs Cameron's story and they were once married so they're insisting little subplots to it but you know.
Nothing to take away though from the fact that Hurt Locker.
-- genuinely high quality movie.
What happened lit by the way you looked at event that was -- -- producer banned from the ceremonies dvd that one yeah.
Yeah there was -- there was the matter there was an official verdict you know they they had to decide if they were gonna let him keep his tickets or not.
And ultimately they just said that's that's bad behavior you can't be a -- -- you know used not only was he trying to promote.
The Hurt Locker he is actually kinda you sort of -- the rise the other films and tried it.
-- -- -- -- And ultimately that's that's bad.
That's bad play bad form you know even though a bad form thank you yes I -- who wins best actress best actor.
Best actress -- and Sandra Bullock thought -- think I am gonna lean towards Merrill now and we talked about it a little bit earlier in debt.
I like Meryl Streep to it to be a surprise.
But of course I'm either first or last in my Oscar pool by -- -- -- -- -- the NCAA basketball -- with all over the place.
Picking wild underdogs in and so it just more fun for me that way and now best actor.
-- and Jeff Bridges.
It's tough to root against him is a four time previous nominee is as -- one.
And he's got some of that that history behind the author likes to reward the guy that's that's been up there -- the the -- that's been up.
For many awards and and kind of give them an unofficial lifetime achievement it's a great performance in crazy heart.
There might be -- -- sort of live a long shot there might actually be Morgan Freeman because the academy does like him and you know he's playing it.
One of one of our recent history's all time great -- and Nelson Mandela and was it it was a pretty impressive story.
I needed I mean he was born to play that role -- those and he may sneak in there and actually take that -- away from up from the favorite Jeff Jeff Bridges.
You know -- -- -- with you on the -- -- thing because although she's been nominated so many times the last time she won was so -- choice.
I thought she won for devil wears Prada but she did not she was nominated.
So I -- I don't believe that they might tip their hat to her after all these nominations.
Absolutely United's it's interesting that she's only one and it -- it could have been nominated.
Yeah I was taken -- out this morning make sure I was fresh on the facts but and a you know there -- a bunch of movies she could have been nominated for as well that she wasn't that's amazing I mean it's nearly every film that she is get that it was so up.
I could ever.
Palin was her first Oscar so she.
I'm not I'm really -- positive -- -- -- Which you go through to good sport as well so I think she deserves it -- like some more real -- -- few seconds left an enemy this Oscars show shorter -- he -- is way too long you know you're waiting awaiting adding a lot of people who are very impatient society of flip the channels don't then.
You know what I did so I'd be hard pressed to believe that they actually make it -- -- -- cut out actually doing the you know the song choice is best song.
And that always you -- took up a little bit of time in the past but I can't -- do those -- shall be void of music altogether yeah plots.
You know there's a lot of advertisers are spending a lot of money I don't think they wanna cut them -- -- you know I gotta go yeah that side of things.
There's not gonna let him a kind of truncate the show and make it better and most palatable -- office.
I'm thank you so much -- beyond us away in C -- -- executive producer Yahoo! movies out in LA and I will just point out that Jeff Bridges also.
Times never won the I think he gets to.
That's just not he should only Brandon -- would --
