It's Oscar time! And we're going to be providing a (nearly) live update of the winners throughout the night here at BuddyTV. Will your favorites win? Lose? Keep checking back over the next few hours for the results.

There are a whole bunch of awards to come...

But first, there's a lot of banter meant to appeal to a younger demographic. They do this by recreating the Oscar-movie montage popularized by Billy Crystal over a decade ago. Oh well, what can you do? It is the Oscars, after all. You get the youth vote over on Nickelodeon anyway.

I'm sure we'll get to the awards eventually.

Oh cool! Tom Hanks to give out something or other. Or maybe not. He's talking about older movies for some reason I can't follow. Let's hope it leads to an award.

Eventually. After Kirk Douglas stalls for awhile. Melissa Leo may also win the award for most overwhelmed by the award. First bleeped out obscenity of the night!

Best line of the night! "Where's the microphone?"

And we have a Charlie Sheen joke made by a cross-dressing James Franco/Marilyn Monroe lookalike. Followed by Helen Mirren and Russell Brand in the weirdest presenter combination ever.

Waste Land (Lucy Walker and Angus Aynsley)

And the Oscar goes to... Inside Job (Charles Ferguson and Audrey Marrs)

Darn. No Banksy on the stage. Oh well. Instead, Billy Crystal. Not quite as anonymous but still pretty cool. But not new or hip. Seriously, Academy. If you want to appeal to the younger generation, you probably shouldn't devote half of the program to footage of previous ceremonies and tributes to old movies.

And the Oscar goes to... "We Belong Together" (Randy Newman, Toy Story 3)

No! Celine Dion is singing! Why is this happening?!? Oh, OK. It's the dead-people montage. Sigh...

What's with the crazy poofy skirts? Why can't you all just dress like Anne Hathaway?

The Fighter (David O. Russell)
The King's Speech (Tom Hooper)
The Social Network (David Fincher)
True Grit (Joel Coen and Ethan Coen)

And the Oscar goes to... The King's Speech (Tom Hooper)

That doesn't bode well for The Social Network...

The Governor's Awards went to Eli Wallach, Jean-Luc Goddard, Kevin Brownlow, Francis Ford Coppola. And three of them (not the French one) are now on stage to get clapped for again. Yay for old men deemed important to cinema!

Best Actress
Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right)
Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole)
Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone)
Natalie Portman (Black Swan)

Javier Bardem (Biutiful)
Jeff Bridges (True Grit)
Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network)
Colin Firth (The King's Speech)
James Franco (127 Hours)

And the Oscar goes to... Colin Firth (The King's Speech)

Shocking! Or not. OK, hands up everyone who thought Colin Firth was going to puke onstage.

We're almost done! Almost done! Just the big one now! Will it be The King's Speech? The Social Network? I'm going to go crazy here and pick Winter's Bone to win it all!

I never get these things right anyway, so why not?

Why exactly is the theme for Jurassic Park what they decided to introduce Steven Spielberg with?
