Scott Baio Ain't Got Nothing On Me
I did not see a chunk of the movies up for the major awards this year. I did see Brokeback Mountain, Crash, Walk The Line, and North Country. I really want to see Capote and The Squid and The Whale, as well as a few of the others. I don't know exactly why I am compelled to watch the Academy Awards every year. The show is always so cheesey. My random thoughts...|
Am I one of the few people that didn't think John Stewart was a bad host??? I thought he was great compared to a lot of the past appearances. I mean, I like Steve Martin but as an Oscar Host he really left something to be desired.
I loved the spoof political lobbying adds. Dames Against Dame Judy Dench. HA!
It took long enough, but I am glad someone finally recognized Philip Seymour Hoffman for the great actor he really is.
There was a moment in which one of the minor winners (Make-Up or Short Film made a joke about how she was greatful to the academy that she got to sit next to George Clooney at the Oscar Brunch. Then they flashed the camera to George, and he had a look on his face like "What the Fuck???"
Reese Witherspoon has come a long way since she stared with me in Overnight Delivery. She, best actress. Me, I extraed in Jingle All The Way and then fell off the face of the earth. Maybe I should give her the benefit of the doubt, but she really acted like a bitch during that scene. But that was a long time ago.
