Thoughts On The Oscars

Hugh Jackman did a good job. He was charming.
All musical numbers (except the opening one) should be banned.
Yes, the Beyonce/Baz Luhrmann production wasn't that good.
The show was actually pretty good. I liked the new look.
The way the writing awards were presented was a highlight.
I just found out that was Beck covering Dylan at the end of the presentation.
It's "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat" from the "War Child" compilation.
What's the difference between Sound Editing and Sound Mixing?
I saw Rachel Getting Married on the weekend and it should have been nominated for Best Picture. In light of that, I wish Anne Hathaway had won.
I was happy to see Slumdog Millionaire win. But Milk is a better film.
I was happy to see Sean Penn win. His speech was moving and superb.
Dustin Lance Black's speech was tear inducing.
The actresses used to present Best Actress were a motley lineup of moderates.
What has happened to Sophia Loren?
The actors used to present were a much better lineup.
Tina Fey and Steve Martin were very funny.
Jack Black is rarely funny.
Penelope Cruz is just annoying.
Queen Latifah singing over dead people was just bad.
Why is God great?
I need to see The Reader too.
Why was Synecdoche, New York snubbed?

    And why wasn't Heath Ledger in the deaths for the year?

    You will enjoy The Reader.
