Hello Gorgeous!

There's no denying it. I love the Oscars. It doesn't matter how lame the host is or how many akward moments there are. I will always love them.

I especially love the Oscars when they get it right.

And of course by "right" I mean what I consider to be right. Which is sometimes wrong.

But I think overall it was a fair night.

After this writer's strike though...why were the intros still so poorly written? And on top of that poorly spoken? These people look like they're going to crap their pants. Why does every award introduction have to begin with "Since the beginning of time..." or just one-word sentences like "Courage. Dedication. Commitment. Botox. These are the makings of this year's Best Actress Nominees...." Come on people. Let's get up there and say something normal.

Poor John Stewart. I don't think he's going to get asked back again. I love him. He's funny and in my book he can do no wrong. But all things considered, he was lame this year.

The Cohen brothers aside it was quite a year for the Europeans, particularly the French. The oscars seem more and more dominated by the Europeans. I can't quite tell if this is a good or bad thing. Or why.

Anyway. Until next year....

So what did you think of the Oscar for Marion Cotillard ?

Entirely deserved. I wasn't crazy about the movie in general, but her transformation was truly incredible. And her voice! Gave me shivers.
