I need to think about it.

Translation:  I might post something about it by the time I think we have a real pope again  :P




. . .  nah, probably sooner than that.  But I do need to sleep on it.

 ;D

A little bummed the actors from The Master didn't win anything.  Didn't like the movie, but I feel like they deserve recognition for the acting they put into it.

I take back what I said about McFarlane probably not winding up as worst Oscars host ever.


Ladies and gentlemen . . . Seth McFarlane was the worst Oscars host ever.

I mean it, too: Daniel Day Lewis's less-than-five-minute acceptance speech was better than all of McFarlane's material tonight combined.

You should read Nikkie Finke's "live-snark" of the Oscars. She practically agreed with you about everything.

My favorite comment: "If only this Oscars Show was April 14, 1865 at Fordís Theater. Mr. Lincoln would have walked out early due to boredom and John Wilkes Booth would only have had Seth MacFarlane to contend with."

Is she kidding?  Lincoln would have shot himself...

I thought Kristen Stewart's dress was nice.  Perhaps, for some people, the crutches detracted from it.  According to her, they were not an intentional fashion accessory.  Were she Bjork or Lady Gaga, they probably would've been.

I hate it when the winners just thank a laundry list of people in their acceptance speech, a la Anne Hathaway.

I just hate Anne Hathaway, period.  Why is this woman famous?  She got her big break in a Disney feature, of all things, and it seems like she hasn't followed it up with anything terribly substantial, mostly just romantic comedies and popcorn movies.  I guess her most "serious" role was as the wife of a homosexual cowboy, but it's arguable whether anyone can really take that kind of thing seriously or not (an accurate measure of that movie's posterity might be that the phrase "brokeback" has become a funny slang word for macho activities which are secretly gay).  And finally she gets an Oscar for over-emoting in some Andrew Lloyd Webber schmaltz.

In a sane world, all the unfair detraction given to Kristen Stewart would be given to A. Hathaway instead.

It would have been better if she brushed her hair.

I'm sure she brushed her hair, but I take your meaning.  I found it fetching, though.  Slightly tousled and earthyóan unlikely but winning contrast to the serene dress.  She looked like an elven princess; a shame it was late afternoon Los Angeles rather than a haunted woodland under aquamarine moonlight.  Perhaps having her hair in a crown braid would've been an improvement, but she still looked superb.

Andrew Lloyd Webber has nothing to do with Les M is and Hathaway gave a great performance in it.

Well, then whoever was behind the book, music, and lyrics of that thing did an impressive job of approximating his style.

I guess if you like the emotional content of your films to be somewhere on the level of bombast, such that it hits you over the head like a ton of bricks shooting off the world's most garish display of fireworks, then yes.  It was a great performance.

I thought Anne did very well as Fontine -- but I couldn't STAND her dress.  Then again, she flat out admitted that she chose it 3 hours before the red carpet.  *eye roll*  She just doesn't seem to take things seriously -- favored to win and not picking out a dress in advance?

As for Kristen -- the dress didn't flatter her.  She doesn't have much of a waist and this only drew attention to that.  The fabric was pretty, but I wished the dress had more shape, like her on screen wedding dress did.  She looked amazing in that.  Truthfully, though, I felt for her last night with the injury.

She had picked one out in advance but then for whatever reason picked a different one. I didn't like it either, although (modesty aside) the back was interesting. The necklace didn't work with the neckline but it was probably chosen for the first dress.

I thought it looked like an ill fitting apron.

The fact that no awards were given to The Master was embarrassing. 

Argo did not deserve Best Picture.  It's hard to pass on Joaquin Phoenix for best actor but if they were going to they certainly chose the right man.  DDL is, in my opinion, the best film actor to ever live.

Both female acting award winners shouldn't have won.

Also hard to pass on Hoffman for Supporting Actor, but if you're going to do it then giving it to Waltz is the next best choice.
