I know this has nothing to do with me, but I am filled with heartwarming blog love after seeing the stream of Oscar posts. I have to admit, I was feeling a little alienated after no one responded to my "reveal yourself" survey, but this enthusiasm is just what the blog should be. Betty and Bimbo, your first post was hilarious.

Anyway, I am sorry I was not able to participate after suggesting the darn thing, but I only just received a last-minute invitation to watch the show at a friend's house (otherwise Speed and I were not going to be able to watch AT ALL) and I didn't think it would be in the best taste to bring my laptop. Onto the comments:

-Speed and I are psyched about The Lives of Others (though we think Days of Glory was even better).
-Helen Mirren's acceptance speech was fine until the last moment when it got weirdly grand: "Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the queen!" What was she talking about?
-The dialogue they write for the presenters is so awkward. Half the time it seemed like they were praising Idi Amin.
-The gospel choirs are embarrassing. Two in one night??? And the first one came on for thirty seconds and marched right out for no reason at all.
-Speed is auditioning for Polobolus on Wednesday.
-We like Jennifer Hudson.
-Diane Keaton is astride Jack Nicholson as we speak.

i agree gospel choirs were embarrassing as were the jokes about foreigners- enough already
ellen was lame, safe, acceptable, dull...bring back chris rock, whoopi and billy crystal

The Gospel choir was funny with Ellen, I thought. The tambourine was a nice touch! But it made Beyonce and J-Hud's performance look even more like a high school graduation than it was already starting to. J-Hud, get a bra!

Betty can't wait to see the Lives of Others, but that director who accepted the award seemed like a real douche.

i thought she was referring to herself as the queen...kind of like cameron's "i'm the king of the world". we TOLD you she was giddy/high.
