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."

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.
If traditional Catholics like to call themselves "trads", in the context of a Catholic forum, that is fine usually.

But it is a matter for Catholics only to discuss.

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.
