Grammys were more satisfying.

Was that the Lazarus Memorial Children's Choir?

Having seen 6 of the 10, I'm more let down by the Oscars than ever before. I liked the awards better when I had no idea what the hell I was talking about, as opposed to a faint clue. Bad sign.

It's OK, Mel. None of these films are important anyway.

I was just talking to someone in florida about this. She got the same "local news report."

Fucking canned bullshit from the ABC, surely.

A couple of nice wins. So happy for Natalie. Trent Reznor winning a fucking Academy Award still amazes me. And while The King's Speech isn't my least favorite recent Best Picture winner or anything (I like it more than Hurt Locker from just last year, for instance) I was really pulling for Social Network to take it down. Oh well.

Hathaway and Franco weren't very good, their joke writers weren't very good, and they obviously won't be invited to host again. I really like both of them, but they weren't right for this. Franco especially. He's great, but his personality isn't appropriate for an MC gig. Too stoned and nonchalant for this kinda deal.

I agree with Randy Newman, also. Only 4 nominees for Best Original Song? There are a thousand songs written every year for movies, and they could only find four worthy of recognition? That's bullshit.

If those were the best original songs they could find this year, the decision to stick to just four was a merciful one.

It's typical, but everyone in Hollywood is patting themselves on the ass extra hard tonight.

Everyone was just super! Awards for everyone!

Gooooo Hollywood!

I had no idea she looked so much like Hayden; that's who she reminds me of anyway. Very fine, and her performance in Winter's Bone was superb. Natalie was deserving, however, and her pregnant self looked great as ever.

Then Bridges walked out. That was a very good stretch, perhaps the only one.

Seriously. I think she wore that specifically to call out how bleeping hot she is, knowing they were going to show her looking like something the cat dragged in during her nomination clip.

I know deep down that the Oscars are lame and silly, but I always enjoy watching them, even the boring parts.

Had fun with a group of people at a friend's house, lots of food. I tied for the win on the ballots with 12 out of the 24 categories on the ballot, which was kind of nifty.

I know the press always whines about the "east coast jokes" or whatever when someone like Jon Stewart hosts, but there's no way Hathaway and Franco (attractive though they were, and Hath's costume/hair changes were impressive) were anything resembling 'good.'

My favorite bit of the show - the best picture montage with the King's Speech speech and Beethoven music. That was really kind of awesome.
