Jennifer Hudson... love her. Like the dress. Am very unclear about what that gold lame dracula bolero jackety number is supposed to accomplish.

Does Reese Witherspoon ever wear a bad red carpet dress? I think not, and it only got better since her divorce. I hope she pays her stylist well.

Steve Carell looks cute in his tux.

Did anyone watch the pre-show opening montage with the penguins etc and the Queen driving the Little Miss Sunshine VW bus? I love that crap.Big Grin

So, anybody else wondering where the guy from Police Academy is? I think he could have done the whole sound effects thing without conductor and chorus....

noone else is playing?

Not that there was much to play with....I dropped out for an hour and a half and I'm not sure I missed much, though I did see more interpretive dance while on the phone.

i came in late (roller derby...helluva bout too---sudden death overtime, Putas 28/Cherry Bombs 27. dammit). came in right as An Inconvenient Truth won. i actually liked the shadow dancers. happy about Forrest Whitaker, too.

Ellen seems tranquilized...

Went to bed at 10:30 and the Oscars ran so long that my TIVO missed the last 4 big awards. Oh well.

some things are worth staying up for (especially when you don't have to work the next day)

None of the wives were nominated so Razz on the Oscars.

Hey, Marty finally won. Shoulda won for "The Aviator". Saw "The Departed" recently, liked it better when it was known as "Infernal Affairs". But DiCaprio did great job, shoulda been nominated for it.

They need to give Christopher Lee an honorary award. There are no horror flick stars from the old days left except for Lee.

Still haven't seen "Blood Diamond" (or "Little Children")- why are they keeping my Jen Con from me?!?! Mad But "Blood Diamond" will be on dvd next month. Big Grin

I enjoyed the Oscars.

I thought Ellen did a decent hosting job. Just enough to keep things interesting. Her chat with Clint Eastwood was the best.

I was glad to see Helen Mirren win. And her gown looked stunning! Elegant, not to mention age-appropriate.

Props to Forrest Whittaker, as well. I like his acting. His speech I could have done without, but at least it wasn't too long.

Great to see Scorsese finally get a bit of Oscars recognition. Haven't seen the film yet so I can't comment on that.

I liked the montage with some of the Best Foreign Films and also thought the costume design segment was handled well.

Ares was annoyed by all the sucking up to Al Gore or, as I like to call him, Daryl Hammond. *snicker*

Well, that's my take. Until next time.
