ZZZZzzzzz the Oscars and Twilight… LIES!

Dear Oscars,

Welp, thanks for giving me exactly ZERO material besides a 5 second moment in a clip that was autotuned! Way to be a uuuuge let down. Where was the rumored Breaking Dawn footage, though admittedly, that would have been awkward. And no trinity? Could you not have thrown them in the audience or CGI-ed (technical term) them clapping for some winner? No? No one? FINE… let’s watch it again

video here

If someone has the ringtone of this please email it or post it cause like EVERYONE is asking.

Remember that time Rob was at the Oscars?

Yea, that was a good night. Remember when my phone died because of the overload of comments on LTR? Yea… that was a good night.

Remember when Kristen and Taylor were at the Oscars?

Yea that was an ok night… Remember how Kristen had a flub and people freaked out and I forgot Taylor was there? Yea.

So Oscars… you’ve have Rob, Taylor and Kristen representing Twilight at the telecast over the last 2 years, don’t you think it’s time for someone else to rep for the saga? Like maybe Solomon Trimble? He could do a fancy french braid for the special night… or maybe Mr. Molina could come and quiz the attendees on Oscar history? Who will win the golden onion at the Oscars?

Well that was a snoozefest I gotta say… Franco was robbed but oh wells. There’s always next year when the trinity will no doubt be nommed for their performances in Breaking Dawn. Award for best forbidden love affair? Taylor Lautner and whoever plays Renesmee: AUTOMATIC WIN!

Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, the Oscars discovered Autotune,
Themoonisdown

Did anyone else sit through this? Who won their Oscar pool? I came in second (2nd place 3 way tie. HA!) White Yorkie won. HE WOULD.

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTR, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

    I was youtube-ing old rob on Ellen while watching the oscars (that’s normal,right?) and then the “non-event” happened and I was like really? really? that’s it? and yes, that was it……

    I was watching make it or breakit on netflix since it had become my weekend obsession while having the snoozy oscars on in the background. So sorry oscars, this did not make you young and hip.

    • natteringyeahrobber

      I felt bad for Franco and Hathaway. I wished they would have let Franco do a drag number. And Hathaway has been good in musical numbers on SNL – she needed better writers and a witty musical number to perform. Good talent gone wasted. I did love Kirk Douglas – he acted a fair piece younger and hipper than many of the presenters.

  • zzzKATEzzz

    I think I can honestly say the only movie up for any award that I actually saw was Toy Story 3. (2 kids + new baby +no money) I did chuckle at the brief (e)clip(se), but was also expecting just a little more: a sighting, a reference, or a proper musical number revealing how much all the hoity-toities love the books (like the movies) that ends in an audience poll – Team Edward declared the true victors of the evening.

    OT- was listening to BD last night on my way to la-la land and was at the part where Edward hears the baby in utero. Bella is smiling and crying and I just could not property imagine Kristen Stewart pulling this off. I’m not a hater, but without actually being jacked on preggo hormones, could she emote at this level?

    • Ambella

      I do question her ability to portray “maternal”………

      sidenote her dress at the oscars back in the day was fab….

      • ladyofthemeadow

        I agree, not sure Kristen can do maternal. We’ll see. I’m dying to see it anyway.

        Fortunately, Bella doesn’t really do maternal. One of the things about BD that bugged me was that Bella is not very maternal. I mean, what new mom would leave her newborn to the care of others, and head out for some canoodling in the woods with hubby (post-C-section too – ouch!)

        • cosi bella

          Yeah the Bella maternal thing – just one of many huh? elements of BD IMO.

          My theory is that the reason why all SM’s characters fell apart in BD was cos she fell out of love with them…s’why she was no longer true to them..she lost that passion/authenticity for them or somethin

          I think SM created Jacob and inadvertently fell in love with HIM and ditched Edward in her heart. Although for some reason she had to continue with Bella loving Edward (fan pressure?) SM’s heart wasn’t in it. If she’d have stayed true to her heart then Bella would’ve picked Jacob (cos SM IS Bella right?) Then the story would’ve been authentic.

          Which is why – to thine own self be true is always the ONLY way.

          Sorry I seem to be waxing philisophical too much here..(tweed serious – amirite?) .will try and come up with something witty soon – we’re meant to be having FUN here right? – although with all this talk about BD coming out I’m afraid I find myself drifting into full on fluffy fangrrrrrl mode …how uncool

          :))))

          • ladyofthemeadow

            Yeah, I too had a lot of huh? moments while reading BD. I pined for the sheer excitement of reading Twilight (as in book #1) and wasn’t all that interested in the whole Renesmee/vamp war story line of BD.

            I started off Team Jacob but I’ve read so much fanfic I’m now firmly Team Edward. Jake’s abs last night temporarily sent me back over though!

            Re. your theory on SM inadvertently falling in love with Jacob rather than Edward – it has its merits, but I’ll warn ya – it’s almost heresy to admit this publicly on LTT! You could get a maelstrom of comments about this!

            dang I had kids in tow and it was our last day – had no time – I so wanna go back to Epcot and spend like a week there in all the different ‘countries’.

            did manage to see the “beatles’ playing in the lawn tho. Very cool.
            Ifelt creepy that I was the only one standing watching tho..

            hmm wonder if Disney will every do a Twilight attraction like the new Harry Potter one….

            BET they do!!! :) hey we can add that to our list of “things to look forward to after BD2 has wrapped!

            SM did say in an interview that she would have picked Jacob because he was more her type or something like that. Is he supposed to be based on Nacho? Maybe she was throwing out some love. But yes agree, I think she was in love with both characters.

          • Anonymous

            Haven’t re-read BD yet. I think I read it twice in the past year though. Anyway, SM actually wrote Twilight, then a different version of BD (I think she said we’ll never see, was a gift to her sis). And then went back and wrote NM and Eclipse. She did say if she could do it over she would have written parts of BD from other perspectives than Jacob. I think the first and last part had to be Bella’s but maybe the middle could have been broken up into two different perspectives.

          • TeamSeth

          *shrugging on white lab coat for Twi-Science Theory* This bugged me too! But she was a vamp so C-section would be all healed up and as she was turned before end of the birth all those feel good post baby hormones wouldn’t have had a chance to kick in for her to instantly bond with the baby.

          And she didn’t bond afterwards because aren’t feelings all chemicals anyway and vamps are frozen physically (except for sperm aparently, unless Edward had been saving his jizz for 90? years). So technically Edward was not in love with Bella. Wha?!?!

          • TeamSeth

            Nah, I disagree. She was hardcore maternal. The first thing she does is reach for her baby. Then it bites her and everyone FLIPS out (like she wasn’t going to turn into a friggin’ vampire anyway–SERIOUSLY PEOPLE?!) Anyway, they snatch the baby up and Rosalie gets her and that’s that. Bella is like “Noooooooooooooo” all Anakin Skywalker style and then she turns.

            BUT.

            When she ‘wakes up’, I agree. They’re all like “Hey, so… um, you must be hungry or something right?” and she’s all “I can see more colors and hear everything. OMG They could hear EVERYTHING I EVER said. Tres Embarrassing! Look at me, I’m super hot! Oh wait, hungry? Hm. I suppose. Hey, what’s that yummy floral scent that’s obviously my human blood covered up by bleach smell… Wait, hungry? Oh yeah. I guess so. Mountain lion… mmmm…. Wait, why am I wearing HEELS? ALICE! Ugh.” “So, Bella, are you going to kill us or not? You hungry?!!!!” “Hungry! yes, fine. Let’s go eat. These people are ridiculous.” FIVE HOURS, SOME GROWLING, AND ONE ALMOST DEAD HUMAN LATER…. “OMG I HAVE A BABY!”

          • Anonymous

            Renesemee was born before Bella was turned? Hmmm, never thought I’d say it but I’m going to have to reread parts of BD.

            So she had time to bond as a human, shouldn’t she have stayed all maternal as a vamp? I don’t have a baby so I can’t say but maybe even strong maternal feelings get overpowered by hot vamp sexytimes with Edward. Should we give Bella the benefit of the doubt? And it is Renesemee.

          • TeamSeth

            “Renesemee was born before Bella was turned?”

            SERIOUSLY?! Go reread BD. Now. Right at the final moments of Jacob’s book. Wow! Am I the only person in the LTT universe who actually thought the birth scene wasn’t horrific and had a nice bonding moment? Sigh. Yeah,

            Bella goes to pikc up her sippy cup, then her water breaks? Then the kid is drowning and she panics, then they get her to the operating room and “prep” her and Edward bites open her stomach and at some point her spinal cord severs and she loses feeling in her legs. They pull out the kid, she names her or something, the kid touches her and I’m pretty sure Bella can tell what she’s thinking (“I love you, mommy”) but it’s Jake’s POV, so who knows. Then she bites her and the who group (everyone else is out hunting or something, so it’s just Jake, Rosalie, and Edward) FREAKS OUT. Rosalie gets the kid downstairs and Edward begins to bite Bella all over her body so the venom will spread quicker. Jake is disgusted ‘cuz he’s licking her, as if he’s ‘enjoying her blood’, but then realizes he’s closing the wounds so the process goes quicker. Then Edward yells at Jake to leave because he’s not part of the family (or something) and Jake goes down thinking Bella’s dying or whatever and has hatred for Renameme and Rosalie and then he sees her and gravity stops working. End of Part 2.

          • TeamSeth

            Er, I guess you don’t have to go reread after all lol Though I’ve only read it once (yeah, that’s off memory, ONE time, like 2 years ago. #normal), so I’m probably off on some deets.

          • Anonymous

            Apparently brain bleach works better than I thought. I remember a sippy cup then nothing until the gravity bit.

          • Anonymous

            You pretty much nailed TS! I lit’rally just finished re-reading it a few weeks ago. Couldn’t remember much from the initial reading, so most of it seemed new the second time. (didn’t remember the having puppies comment either the first time)
            Yes, she was all maternal. Even before she gave birth. I think the problem afterward is she’s a vamp, she doesn’t have to go thru post-pardem or anything. She just needs to feed, but not really. She’s so intuned with her other senses it takes her awhile to get back to the mothering thing. And the c-section was healed with Edward’s venom. So she was all into jumping out of windows, over lakes and running through the trees. She was 110% about that baby!

            My thought is why no one questions Edward’s lack of parental skills? Although to be in honest, in my second reading it didn’t bother me as much. He just didn’t seem to bond with her as much Bella.

          • TeamSeth

            I thought Edward did have parental skills? Though…he does have to cede quite a bit to Jake. It’s actually like Jake, Bella, and Renesme hang out a lot and then Bella goes and has sex with Edward in their cottage.

            The main reason they kept Bella from Renesme at first was because they didn’t want a tragic accident to occur. But when she second time sees her all she wants to do is hold her, and everyone’s too scared that she’ll kill her because of the human blood. But, if you recall that scene when Charlie meets vamp Bells for the first time (with her lubricant venom in her eyeballs causing issues w/ the contacts) he does 2 things that show her maternal side: He makes a comment about Renesme being “hefty” and Bella gets offended and then they say that she’s Edward’s cousin’s or something and he makes a comment to her that she’s a little young to take on such a responsibility (I <3 Charlie) and she holds the kid closer and snaps, "She's mine!" Which is what tips Charlie off to the fact that Renesme is actually her kid. (again, I <3 Charlie).

          • Anonymous

            I think that Edward didn’t really get the chance to be paternal. What with Bella, Jake and Rose all up in Renesme’s buisness he probably thought she needed some space! I also wanted Edward to let go more in BD, be a little carefree. But I guess preparing for the Battle That Wasn’t was very nervewracking.

          • natteringyeahrobber

            I didn’t read BD very well, because I guess I missed the explanation re: how Edward’s semen remained intact over the years. But I guess if his body was always running at freezing temp,right, that might explain it. That, plus he must have never given it opportunity for release…which would explain his pained look all the time.

            About the chemicals. Maybe he just has chemical memories, and those memories were activated by her blood scent. Or maybe he just remembered that he loves brunettes. From time to time, I remember how much I love blond guys, and it has nothing to do with chemicals. Just working off of memory.

          • Anonymous

            Blondes, mmm.

            So basically Edward was a walking sperm storage unit who knew he’d only get one shot? Than SM is one sadisdic author.

            Yes, walking talking f’ing hot sperm storage unit. Who apparently never ran into any other hot brunettes (a.k.a. shot-shooting opportunities).

            Then again, as someone here pointed out not long ago, he did have a box of Kleenex on the lounge chair in his room. So maybe vampire sperm is real.

            SM answered this question on her BD faq’s page:

            It was a little too much to absorb in one reading but this is basically what I get from it. Vampires have saliva-venom which kills their prey. They also have a lubricant-venom that acts to keep their human body functioning as closely as it did before. ie, keeping their joints, eyeballs moving without blood or fluid. “A fluid closely related to seminal fluid exist which carry genetic information and are capable of bonding with a human ovum.”

            I think I need to put on my tweed serious glasses for this one!

I need to check out the SM page more often! :)Ok, so basically SM’s confirming that vampire sperm is real. But I have to LOL at “closely related to seminal fluid” – um, ok, but, like, what color is it? Purple? Before they bond with human ovum, do they get them a ring and allow a leg hitch? Can the sperm sense if the egg is thinking about sex, money or cats?

          • TeamSeth

            Apparently the sperm cannot tell what the ovum is thinking because otherwise he would’ve wrapped it up to avoid the awkward imprint situation all together. That opens a WHOLE other can of worms though–like is the ovum defined as a living being if E can hear it thinking? AND if he can hear an ovum, imagine how annoying his own sperms are! Talk about a grouchy crew. I can imagine them all singing:
            “Life is so unnerving
            For a sperm cell whose not serving.
            He’s not whole with an egg to chase upon.
            109 years we’ve been crusting,
            needing so much more than thrusting.
            Needing exercise–a chance to use our skills.
            Most days we just lay around Ed’s testes.

            SM probably does not have a FAQ re: whether or not vampire seminal fluid has capacity for intelligent thoughts. I’m just guessing it does, since it’s not human….and not being human opens the door for numerous fun possibilities. I’m going to assume Edward’s vampire sperm has a high IQ. Bella’s egg, on the other hand is just human. Just a soft, sexy globular object with potential. Edward’s sperm probably tried to have a conversation with Bella’s egg, though. And after hours of no response, his sperm decided “ahhhh f#@& it, let’s do this.”

            And so Renesmee was conceived.

          • TeamSeth

            Whatever. Her egg is smart too, and perceptive, it just has this extreme shield. No wonder the sperm went for it, he was just to curious not to hit it. Like Edward.

    I kept waiting for the Twilight surprise, even after the autotuned clip. At some point, a commercial with Jennie Garth was on and I was wondering if that was the surprise – IRL wife of Carlisle on TV promoting short hair? When she stepped out of the shower, I really really hoped Carlisle would be there, naked, performing “Private Dancer.” I can’t get a grip on how Summit thinks at this point.

    The clip itself – the creator is clearly a stronger HP fan. Way more time and energy spent on that portion of the clip. The Twi portion was too brief. Though lots of loving attention on Taylor’s ripped abs – I was almost sent over to Team Jacob.

        AutoTune is sort of like…computerized singing. It is a program that is supposed to auto-correct problems with a singer’s pitch. But, instead, it just makes people sound like computers. Hard to describe, but it can make transforms normal singing voice into dorky computer voice.

        • JustGoWithIt

          That makes it oh so useful sounding, which is about right. Don’t forget it can also make a singing/talking voice sound like an underwater robot, as seen in Cher and Ke$ha songs, or a rapper sound like he is rapping from inside a robot, see T-Pain. Now those are useful applications of auto tune, because if you put a robot underwater that would be a real electricity hazard, and if you put a rapper inside a robot…well that wouldn’t be too difficult. They should do that.

      • cosi bella

        They auto tune dialogue as well so it turns ‘speaking’ into ‘singing’ the most famous one is ‘double rainbow’. But there’s also “auto tune the news” – they seem to auto tune everything these days.

    I made it about 1/2 hour. I decided to watch Big Love instead. I think the ‘younger’ and ‘hipper’ idea was doomed to fail. It’s not the MTV movie awards. Plus, the big winner was a historical drama about a stuttering King of England. (I still want to see it. Hooray to Colin Firth) Not necessarily going to drag in the young’uns.

    Plus, after Rob looked so pretty in his tux at the Golden Globes, he should have been there. Hosting. With TomStu. Drunk. The two of them giggling on stage like schoolgirls. Then Taylor rushing on stage in order to bring dignity to the event. Anne whooping at all the presenters and Franco being…umm…high(?) didn’t quite cut it. I should be running the Oscars!

    I think it was an extremely cheap and weird thing to do to promise something big for Twilight fans, just because they know that is a lot of people and might boost viewership. Eclipse was not nominated for an Oscar. That does not surprise or anger any of us (if I may speak for all of us). Seemed like a desperate bid for viewers to me. With all the money in movies I can’t imagine the Oscars ending, so why the all the “we need to be younger, hey Twilight fans you’ll watch, right, right?”
    That said, didn’t work on me, I’ve never sat through an awards show, you’d have to promise to view Robsten’s home made sex tapes for me to watch.

    • The_OldOne

      Did you see that clip where someone asked David Slade if he felt snubbed because Eclipse was not nominated for an Oscar, and Slade just laughed hysterically? Then he said, well, the musical score was pretty good. Then started laughing again.

        I didn’t see that, but it sounds great.

      • JustGoWithIt

        I think that is something to think about though, not necessarily in relation to Twilight movies, but it does seem the same movies are nominated in all the different categories, maybe to make sure everyone leaves with something? I did think The Social Network’s score was really good, and different from what we normally hear.

    • The_OldOne

      Did you see that clip where someone asked David Slade if he felt snubbed because Eclipse was not nominated for an Oscar, and Slade just laughed hysterically? Then he said, well, the musical score was pretty good. Then started laughing again.

      Well, maybe after all the Eclipse Razzie nominations, the Academy thought, “Well…umm…not the best idea to do a musical retrospective of the first three Twilight movies.” Though that would be epic and the 13-18 female demographic would be through the roof. (Some of us 30 somethings would be watching anyway to get glimpses of Mr.Firth )

      However, it would have been fantastic if the cast of the Last Airbender would have given out Best Lighting and 100 Monkey’s performed the score of The King’s Speech.

        Hey Stace! I thought of you today when I heard a song off the new Matthew Morrison CD. Apparently he’s gonna be going on tour this summer. It was a pretty good song! Thought you’d like to know :)

        What’s a Razzie?

          You can google it.
          It’s the anti-Oscars: the Golden Raspberry for the worst film and worst acting performances.
          The winners seldom show up to collect their prizes, though!

          • JustGoWithIt

            I would. It doesn’t make the film or performance any worse to come get your award. Just shows a good sense of humor.

          • TeamSeth

            Yeah, AND you have a trophy to put up on your wall! And if it’s in the shape of a raspberry… that’s pretty awesome.

  • JustGoWithIt

    Oh my goodness. I looked it up on YouTube, why bother!? They should have said “Summit promises the equivalent of 10 second fan made YouTube New Moon montage.

    • The_OldOne

      Come to think of it, there are probably thousands of better fan-made clips and parodies that are better than what they came up with!

      • ladyofthemeadow

        Totally Agree.

      My bad, it was Eclipse. For some reason I thought New Moon. I should know too..

    The lack of any good Twi- or Rob-related stuff (including lame clip) made me grasp at anything I could find that even slightly related. I came up with this: there was a brief clip of the Banksy movie (Exit Through the Gift Shop), showing an elephant painted like wallpaper that’s in that movie. Guess who that elephant was? Right! Tai, who stars with Rob in Water For Elephants!
    Yeah, lame.

    The stuffy old Oscars throwing in a “funny” little autotune montage was a bit like your old boring uncle trying to be “hip” at the summer family reunion by awkwardly wearing an ironic t-shirt. It was their way of saying “hi younger viewers, 99% of our show is safe and old and boring, but here’s a little something to let us know we’re thinking of you.” It just fell flat.

    With that said, I expect the Oscars to be a bit stuffy, safe, and boring. (Well, I mean, minus the red carpet..could we please get some excitement? Where is Cher when you need her?) I don’t want the Oscars to become some teenage hormone cringe-inducing screamfest with exclusive clips of Edward and Bella getting it on and then Queen Latifah recapping their love affair for, like, the 5 longest minutes of your life.

    I didn’t watch. Why should I when I can look at all the pretty dresses and see who won what in all of 10 mintues online?
    BTW, is it just me, or do Jennifer Hudson’s boobs (actually her cleavage) look really weird and kinda funky? Something looks wrong to me.

    • JustGoWithIt

      You are not used to seeing breasts that aren’t surgically enhanced or taped up to within an inch of their life. I thought the same thing, and then thought oh, right, real breasts.

    • Anonymous

      I think the weird boobs were a result of her super rapid weight loss.

      • JustGoWithIt

        Yeah, if you have sizable boobs, and then loose a bunch of weight you will get what an old acquaintance of mine once called “tennis ball in a tube sock”. It is weird these days to see any type of crease on display when it comes to cleavage. And it must be hard with anything bigger than a B cup to get them to look creaseless and suspended in air really.

    • Anonymous

      I decided it was the cut of her dress. I think that below the boobs / waistline bit was too low. It was actually way below the boobs. (and then I told myself to stop staring, as my friends and I discussed the problem the whole time she was on stage).

  • cosi bella

    “Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, the Oscars discovered Autotune,”
    lol exactly (loved that dude by the way) – I was thinking ‘double rainbow’ too.

    I dunno I just cringe at the “shirtless” ‘joke’ they chose to autotune. Is that the only twilight joke they can think of? does it count as 2nd hand embarassing that they chose this?

    Now if they’d autotuned “they’re not bears” that would have mad me chuckle (oops not eclipse tho) …nah …drawing a blank.

    • JustGoWithIt

      It seemed frankly mocking to me, like hey Twilight idiots, watch the Oscars, we’ve got a surprise for you! Knowing that there was absolutely nobody was going to be excited to see what they had. I didn’t watch, but they probably had it towards the end of the show too, to keep people watching and waiting. Not that that makes me angry or anything, it’s a TV entertainment. Although I probably would have been mad if I had been glued to the screen waiting for a Breaking Dawn clip or live Jumping Rob.

      • cosi bella

        “mocking”

        IKR but I’m not sure – maybe they really are just THAT stupid.

        • JustGoWithIt

          True, I could be over thinking it. But I didn’t hear any buzz like, hey Harry Potter fans, you’ve got to watch the Oscars, there is a surprise for you! Maybe because I don’t follow HP as closely.

          • TeamSeth

            I feel like maybe HP7 pt 2 is going to be nominated for something.

            Though, it is disappointing that Eclipse didn’t get nominated for Hair & Make-up (is that even a category?)

          • Anonymous

            So, you think those wigs were Oscar-worthy? I agree they deserve their own prize (see Razzies, above)!

          • cosi bella

            It always makes me ROFL that Peter Fach. used his wig as a cereal bowl!

            i gotta listen to the Eclipse commentary again – Rob is so frickin hilarious!

          • JustGoWithIt

            I thought Rob was pretty funny on commentary. I liked when he was all “Bella wants it all, Edward is supposed to put up with her running around with some shirtless punk that is trying to seduce her? If my girlfriend did that….” I like it when they actually talk about the story, in a non-press junket type of way.

          • cosi bella

            YES!!! I loved that too. -”No guy is gonna let his girlfriend go running off with some little naked guy all the time !!” rofl.

            But what got me howling (no pun intended) was when they were talking about Booboo and the “woofs” :D

          • TeamSeth

            Totes Oscar worthy! They were the most memorable part of the film!

          • JustGoWithIt

            Yes, when Eclipse won in the Best Wigs award multiple Bella and Jasper and Rosalie and Carlisle and Alice like models could come out in all the wigs. Okay pure fantasy there, I know. So if I’m going there. Wouldn’t it be great if they auctioned off those wigs from the movies, including the original Jacob pre-haircut wig, for some really fun dress up?

          • Anonymous

            Make up is. I forget who won and I’m too lazy to look it up.

            HP was actually nominated in some catergories (sound, costumes, something techy) so it made sense to include the movie with the other two nominees. Twi was just a random throw of “oh! here you go since the stars weren’t gonna show up.”

            To be honest I didn’t really hear any hype about the Twi thing except on here. But, what do I know, I read like two other Rob sites.

          • TeamSeth

            Yeah, I finally looked at the nominations last night (totally skipped the actual ceremony…oops) and saw HP was nominated! And more exciting–it’s playing at 6pm at the beer serving $3 theater by my house!!! And Tron right after. Double feature! :D

      • TeamSeth

        Um, had it been a live action jumping rob, I think stain removers would’ve sold out the next day from everyone peeing their pants (and couches) in excessive laughter.

        • Anonymous

          LTR would also need a new server.

        • JustGoWithIt

          That would have been awesome. I big “we understand the younger viewer” moment if it was time for the Twilight surprise and Rob comes out in his black boxer briefs does a few epic jumps off the stage.

          • TeamSeth

            That would be so epic. Seriously. And I don’t even have a minute interest in seeing Rob in boxer briefs, but it’d be sooooooooo hilarious. Esp. with Franco there.

          • JustGoWithIt

            Ah, Franco and Hathaway could have done a reenactment. They’d actually be really perfect for a reenactment, Hathaway is thin pale and brunette, Franco is thin and pale and has no problem portraying broody.

          • Anonymous

            YES. But Franco as Bella and Hathaway as Edward. Wait, what are we talking about? I just want to see Franco in drag, almost as much as I want to see Charlie in drag. How I pine for Charlie in a feather leotard. Hot. I don’t understand why I need Charlie in this outfit, but I do. Wait, what are we talking about? Anyhow, Franco would be an awesome fanfic trampy Bella. Hathaway could probably pull off Jumping Rob. G. Paltrow told Oscar newbies not to go all avant-garde. Well, why the hell not, I cannot see how it would have hurt ratings.

          • TeamSeth

            Okay, so if they’re in drag, is it still slash?

            If it is Charlie in drag, can we just call it stache?

      So true. The “no shirt” thing is like the most basic, safest, boringest joke you can make about Eclipse.

    Sorry, I am joining the party late….I am still recuping from the unbelievably boring, long and definately disapointing Oscars..(although I did pick the winners) :)!
    I am excited to say that I am attempting to be able to rejoin LTT (which I have been peeping in on from time to time ;)) by listening to BD on audio..not working too well but you know me…I will keep trying no matter HOW LONG it takes b/c I want to be able to be informed and be back here with all of you :)!! Missed you bunches and I will keep working hard at getting through BD..I have a feeling it will give me lots to comment on :0!!
    Love you all..xoxo

    • TeamSeth

      Yay Cyn!!!! And ask any questions about BD you want. Trust me, most of us are still confused on what happened in that book ourselves ;) Just know that Edward has sex and that alone makes the book worthy reading/listening to. :) Welcome back!!!

      Hi Cyn! Good luck with Breaking Dawn… we may give it a hard time sometimes (all of the time) around here but at the end of the day, I enjoyed it. It’s different, that’s for sure.

  • Knowledge Seeker

    You are not alone in your feelings on this forgetting night of fancy dresses and actual disappointment. My Mom called me since I was traveling for work through Dish Network and asked me if I was watching. Unfortunately I was but not in the same way, her response was that I was not missing much. She had been looking forward to it as many other Americans must have been as well, she said she got everything done so she could just relax and invest her time in the annual display. Unfortunately she was not really excited with Franc’s lack of stage presence and really showed her a huge line between the actors of the stage and the movie stars. I was watching via iPad which is actually pretty unique to Dish Network in all it’s capabilities. The Sling Adapter sends unlimited live programming to most mobile devices which is wonderful for weary travelers such as myself. This actually happens a lot in my life but it’s OK when I’m getting to see the world and watch my TV at the same time.
