86th Annual Academy Awards (Oscars 2014)

86th Annual Academy Awards (Oscars 2014)

Here is a collection of my night of over-tweeting (even though Kim and Brax were nice enough to say I wasn't). I like to think of this as my Dark Side of the Moon. Instead of starting The Wizard of Oz, just push play on your DVR of the ceremony and enjoy the experience! Plug: I used Storify to put these together - it's a pretty neat service, once you get the hang of using it.

Oscars 2014

My over-tweets from Sunday's broadcast (and beyond).

  1. I started off my Oscar Sunday self-coverage with some general facts about the different movies in my life:
  2. My favorite Jesus movie we watched in youth group starred Gary Busey and Howie Mandel. #jensmoviefacts #TheOscars
  3. First PG-13 movie I saw: Back to the Future II (1989), w/ my dad & brother. I wanted to see The Little Mermaid. #jensmoviefacts #TheOscars
  4. The first rated R movie I saw was Demolition Man (1993), with my brother in Montgomery. #jensmoviefacts #TheOscars
  5. The most depressing movies I've ever seen both had "bear" titles: The Bear (1988) and Jack the Bear (1993). #jensmoviefacts #TheOscars
  6. Then I started scouring Twitter for celeb and red-carpet coverage:
  7. When you see me on the red carpet of the oscars tonight, just know…there’s a burrito in my clutch. pic.twitter.com/WwXQtMq10A
  8. My favorite movie is Field of Dreams (1989), which wasn't nominated for an Oscar but has an EGOT cast. #jensmoviefacts #TheOscars
  9. I want to be this diva on my wedding day. Including the leggings as pants. #JohnnyandTara #Oscars pic.twitter.com/XK8qSHmrl7
  10. In high school I had a binder with 30-40 actor IMDB profiles printed off and I'd check off movies as I saw them. #jensmoviefacts #TheOscars
  11. Around 6:30pm, I had to make the sad decision to stay home (Winter Storm Titan was the first to affect Nashville, which is ironic when you think about it) and miss an Oscar viewing party. Luckily, my digital antennae picked up ABC clearly and I was able to catch some of the red carpet and the full Oscar ceremony before the rain started pouring enough to give me static.
  12. I love June Squibb because I think I've seen her at the grocery store. #TheOscars
