My local news this morning was discussing the awards, and when they showed video of J-Lo and Cameron at the podium, they were blocking out her cleavage.

I saw it live(ish). It wasn't that big of a deal, but there sure was a little bit of darker skin peeking around the edge. I bet she'll say that she used a darker tape than she wanted too ect.

I wonder why? And I did keep staring and could have sworn I saw a little bit of a nip-slip, but I'm sure she was taped up "nice and tight."

Ok, I just don't understand why cleavage is ok but nipple isn't. WE ALL GOT NIPPLES!. Yes, even MOIS!

New rule: we should require women to cover all part of their breasts in public, except the areolæ., which ma be exposed as fashion or weather condition dictate.

What do we (think) we know?
1) There is a high pitched ringing from the DD audio feed that can be heard during live broadcasts.
2) It's only is heard while listening in 2 channel stereo mode.
3) The same DD feed in 5.1 mode does not seem to be affected.

Other?

+1, exact experience.

Has nothing to do with the A/V quality or anything....but any Blade Runner fans who tuned in happen to share my opinion that Rooney Mara looked as if she had been constructed by the Tyrell Corporation last night?

If the rumored Blade Runner re-visit were to be a full blown re-imagining, Mara would be my choice to fill the Sean Young role on looks alone (better actress, too)

You may be on to something, as Ms. Young was a bit occupied last night anyway.

That was a bit odd the way she was forcing that pose. Not her smoothest look. But it was pretty funny-- when those guys came up for their award and one of them started to mimic her.

Angelina looked anorexic to me. Her arms looked boney, and her face looked drawn.

You didn't miss much. She has shriveled away to nothing but skin and bones that are held together by Super Glue. I now know why Brad has grown facial hair - to absorb the blows from those bones.

I watched in New York live over RCN in 3.0 (5.1 feeding the receiver, but I have only LCR speakers). The only audio problem I had was that the female announcer's microphone was mixed WAY too low and Billy Crystal's microphone had limited frequency response and was mixed somewhat too low. As soon as a performer hit one of the regular microphones, the mix sounded fine.

This did not sound like phasing issues to me. It sounded simply like a bad mix and/or limited levels coming out of those lavaliers.

As for those comments about how the sound should be mixed (voices in C only or LR or LCR), I can see all points of view. For a movie, you'd want the primary voices only in the center, but for a TV show of this nature, mixing only center could cause a -3db level drop in left and right. And some of the TVs I've owned in the past did really strange things playing back L + R stereo - you could hear the phasing. When listening via TV speakers instead of the large system, I actually usually prefer the sound to be mono.

There are times (other shows) that I think I do have phasing issues from the surrounds being fed to the fronts, but I won't be able to tell for sure until I get surrounds in.

I figure most folks who think ABC's 720p picture is excellent are watching on smaller screens. In my calibrated theater (100" screen, JVC projector, Lumagen processor) I watched the OTA feed via my Sony HD DVR tuner. This sends the 720p signal to the Lumagen which converts to 1080p for the JVC. The picture simply doesn't have the snap and dimensionality that I saw with CBS's 1080i Grammy Awards upconverted to 1080p. I've also noticed a similar issue with Fox - football on NBC/CBS is better.

best pq of any abc show i've ever seen. too bad about the messed up audio.

liked the focus group on wizard of oz.


how does a movie that mimics dozens of silent films get best picture and all those awards. i think scorcese just about shat in his pants when he didn't get best director which he actually deserved this year.

the academy consistently fails to get it major awards to the most deserving actors, directors, and producers. great show until they gave all the final awards to that silly french movie that just represents a genre, nothing creative or edgy to that film.

i like meryl, but viola davis deserved that oscar.

Oscars were once won by the big films that gave a lot of people work. Also, New York movies have always had a hard time beating the west coast movies.

Possibly this time it was decided it was a good idea to show the world that Hollywood is open for business and would love to help you make movies.

I will say I have not seen The Artist and that I do intend to.

As for Meryl, her ironic opening to her speech was certainly spot on, at least so far as where I was watching the ceremonies was concerned. I wouldn't be surprised if she wasn't telling Viola Davis before she got her statuette that she should have won instead.

They love to give Oscar to actors impersonating others. It happens all the time.

Clearly the dress designer gave her specific instructions. This show is like a runway show. She probably got paid a pretty penny. Just like Brad Pitt said on "The Actors Studio" that he does voice commercials in Japan abroad so he can do other stuff likes to do for scale.
