And the Oscar Goes To...

Catie and I have had an ongoing competition as to who would be better at dying on screen. It is more difficult than it seems. Try it for yourself and see.

While the competition for who delivers better accents did end up in her favor, I'm afraid that I am going to take this Oscar home (although Catie thinks she will).

See for yourself, and cast your ballot.

Catie takes the cake on this one. Sorry, Dave.

as soon as I stopped laughing I had to watch it again. both pretty good I have to say but I think Dave wins with the whole coughing thing.

SARAH said...

Okay that was awesome. How did you do that without laughing! I loved the very end of Catie dying. Very good, although Dave you did better at the beginning of the script. BUt I have to stick with Catie on the last breath.

Oh ya I keep forgetting. Preston eats about anything except for dairy, honey and eggs. ONce in awhile I will give him some meat. On a typical day he will eat a banana, applesauce, sweet potato and rice cereal is mixed with everything. And sometimes corn and peas. I don't buy the baby food. I make it all myself. What does Bennett eat?

You are the biggest nerds I have ever met. I can just see you sitting there going, "What should we do tonight? I know, let's film ourselves fake dying." With that being said, ironically enough, Andy and I were laying in bed the other night and I told him to do his best "dead face." And we continued for about 20 minutes. So we are probably just as nerdy. Except we didn't have music in the background, or get to say, "Son of a ..." Fake dying is way cooler than a fake already dead face.

nerds? that's putting it nicely...do you know how horrifying this has been to post on the internet? but that's what a true actor does, especially to prove a point...yes, my craft is a blessing and a curse.

I agree, Dave's good with the coughing, but Catie's performance was more dramatic. Dev & I don't do fake dying or fake dead faces; we usually just do ugliest faces, occasionally accompanied by ugliest sounds.

I guess we could fake die with the ugliest faces.

CORY said...

I think Catie's dialogue was more believable. If someone were to say 'Son of a..' to me right before they died because I poisened them... well, I'd die myself from laughing.

Really great guys. I like your enthusiasm for the arts.

CORY said...

Just to be clear... Catie wins my vote. ;)

Stephanie-jean Weber said...

You two are a couple of odd birds for sure! Sorry Dave, Catie wins this one as well :D

I just wish that you guys would be a little more objective, that's all.

Now I know how Mickey Rourke feels.

Spencer chooses Dave and Rachel chooses Catie, but I suspect Bennett was the culprit. Babies Gone Wild in Barbados!

oh my goodness! i can't believe i'm up here, i felt honored just to be in the company of such an amazing actor. well, i had a list of people i didn't want to forget...first of all the academy, david, the director and genius behind this masterpiece...who is totally open to doing partial nudity if tastefully done, cory, my makeup artist...and lastly, my adoring public...without you, i'd be nothing.

Catie... You did have the whole intense "I hate you" look in your eyes... but, in the end I side with Dave.
