My Oscar Stuff

  • Awesome set.
  • Jon Stewart was good -- not great, but good.
  • LOVED the "gay cowboy" clips!
  • "Campaign ads" were hilarious.
  • Ben Stiller in green unitard? Priceless!
  • Reese Witherspoon? For "Election" maybe. Felicity Huffman was robbed.
  • "Crash"? Are you serious?
  • Kudos to Philip Seymour Hoffman honoring his mom.
  • Make-up gag with Steve Carell & Will Ferrell was too funny!
  • George Clooney -- so damned handsome. Great speech. He's bringing a social conscience back to his little corner of Hollywood.
  • Montage this! Sheesh! If this years' show was intended to demonstrate the greatness of film shown in its original glory of theatrical release (rather than a personal DVD player, a Blackberry, or cell phone), it failed. But it probably convinced viewers how boring those fucking montages can be!
  • Best dresses: Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, Uma Thurman.
  • Second Oscar for Costumer Colleen Atwood! Woo Hoo! She's just a girl from Quincy, Washington for God's sake! How cool is that?
  • What's the whole Jessica Alba thing about?
  • My beloved compared the Academy's recognition of "It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp" to them finally honoring rock 'n' roll in the early 1980s. Ooooh... cutting edge.
  • Where the hell were Don Knotts and Darren McGavin in the "In Memorian" roll call?
  • Sharon Stone is on her way to becoming the Sally Kirkland of her generation

Charlize Theron could make a gunny sack look good!

I had higher expectations for Stewart , but he did OK.

I liked the mud-slinging comic ads for Oscar consideration, like accusing Ms. Theron of 'hagging it up' for personal gain.

"Hagging it up" -- that was funny. So was the Dames for Truth ("Judy Dench cost me my left eye!")

Didn't your friend at The Seattle Times do a story pointing out that a lot of cowboy movies had gay themes? Is he moonlighting for Jon Stewart?
