Random Thoughts On The Oscars During The Show

You can also follow my predictions (as if you give a crap) here.
George Clooney is my hero. The man continues to be eloquent, smart, progressive and to the point.
Can someone please give Dolly Parton a sandwich? I mean, I love the woman, but my lord, skinny!
What’s with the music playing during the acceptance speeches. It’s annoying and offensive. Seriously! Cut it out. It’s ruining what is so far the best Oscar show in years!
I’m 7 for 8 so far.
You GOTTA love Betty Bacall, but she seemed somewhat ill. I hope she’s ok.
Line of the night so far:
John Stewart: Pimp….sort of like agent with a better hat.
For those of you keeping count, the leader for being thanked most often is HBO’s Sheila Nevins, with 2.

Crap. Congrats to the filmmakers, but Penguins over Enron!? And here I thought the Academy was gettin’ political wid it!
J-Lo: Uhhhh, use bronzer much?
Am I the only one totally crushing on the hottie who gets a haircut in the diet cokoe ad? And while I’m at it, serious kudos to the use of Everything But the Girl in the evil, gas-guzzing environment destroyer Hummer ad.
Excelent! A tribute to activist films! “They call me Mr. Tibbs!”; “I’m as MAD AS HELL and I’m not going to take this anymore!” Everyone in middle America just got up to pee and grouse about “liberal” Hollywood.
I can’t possibly be the only one being smacked across the face by the irony that is the showcasing of films that “can ony be appreciated on the big screen” to an audience of 1,000,000,000 watching the show ON FUCKING TELEVISION!
10-3, so far.
Robert Altman was eloquent and moving, while not very political. Meryl and Lily’s intro was fantastic.
Damn but it’s EASY tonight fo’ a P-I-M-P!
For some reason I think that Jaimee Foxx and Terence Howard’s after party just became THE after party to hit, yo! (It’s in the Regent Beverly Wilshire….shhhhhh!)
Zhang Ziyi presents the Oscar for the person who mangles my name the worst to host, Jon Stewart.
Gavin Hood wins for Tsotsi from South Africa! The best speech of the night. I have the immense pleasure of having met the man and he is a prince who cares greatly for his country and its people. A big shout out to my best friend Josh Robbins and his lovely wife Cherryl Allen who happens to hail from South Africa. Amandla! Awethu!
15-5. I had forgotten to look up the winner of the American Society of Cinematographers award. Geisha. I didn’t know. I’m so sorry! I’ve…..let you….down!
maybe it’s not cool, but I *heart* Dusty!
I’m officially completely gobsmacked! Crash? I guess I have to see it, now.
