Well, it's over. Kris Tapley, Guy Lodge and I work over the results of the 84th Academy Awards. On Sunday, I was on the red carpet, backstage, at the Governor's Ball and the Weinsteins; Kris and I were both at the Spirit Awards lunch in Santa Monica on Saturday. We discuss the good ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" upset), the bad (Viola Davis was robbed!) and the ugly ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes" lost to "Hugo").
