  1. Channel 9 show their arrogance yet again – why cant they show the telecast at a decent hour on the Gem channel, instead of starting the telecast at 9.40pm. I for one couldn’t care less about watching This is your Life for a B-grade actress who is married to an A-grade actor with A-grade friends. Pathetic programming

  2. FYI. There is an 8th Aussie nominee – Joe Farrell from Sydney who has been nominated for Visual Effects for Hereafter. Apparently people didn’t realise he was Australian and his wife had to call the media to point it out!


  3. Regarding 9’s replay: they are editing it down by 40 mins – so in their arrogance are deciding what sections we might be interested in and what not. In fact they are forcing people who like the Oscars to watch alternate sources. Also given that most people are most interested in the big ones (which appropriately come last) are 9 going to reorganise the telecast to put them at a more viewer friendly time in the telecast (ie earlier) – they did this before! I think they should lose the rights unless they are willing to respect the viewers put them on earlier and in full!!!

  4. @JM. Quite right, and if the advertisers ever get to realise that I won’t be the only one who wants to watch the HD broadcast, they might finally put pressure on the FTA channels to see sense.

  5. Fair enough that this site updates info live, but please don’t have spoilers in the Subject Titles!!!

    Just “and the best film winner is……” without the films title please, or I won’t be able to come to the site until I’ve seen the show.

    1. Effdee: Site policy is always once it has aired in Aus it is no longer a Spoiler. Other such stories have a Spoiler alert. The Oscars are even live across the country at the same time. TVT won’t be holding back on any relevant stories while all other media are simultaneously running it.

      As for headlines…. I don’t write headlines that say “Somebody won Biggest Loser,” “Favourite wins Masterchef”, “Hit film wins Oscar.” That’s crazy stuff. Imagine my Archive of stories then? That said the Oscars are not the Emmys, so I should only be logging stories that I feel are relevant to a TV landscape: ie, Jacki Weaver, Aaron Sorkin, trainwreck TV moment, TV star makes faux pas… but it’s live TV so anything is possible.
