1:32 He’s in a tux. Success.
1:37 Am impressed with number so far. Can’t type- must watch.
1:46 I like the old winners but I miss the clips of the movies. Tilda still looks like a crazy bag lady- it must be said again.
1:48 Now I guess I have to put up with ScarJo and go see Vicky Christina Barcelona. Drat. I hate ScarJo.
1:53 Tina Fey looks WIN. She finally didn’t wear black and Steve Martin obviously didn’t realize that Pink Panther 2 lost him his rights to even watch the Oscars.
2:03 How many times will they cut to Brangelina during Jen’s part? Team Aniston all the way btw.
2:16 Can’t decide whether I want to be in Sarah Jessica Parker’s Dress or Daniel Craig’s pants.
2:26 OMG EEDDWWAARRDD!!! Wait, I already did that didn’t I? Dang, these British accents are getting to me- you’d think I’d be used to it but the check out guy at Tesco just doesn’t sound like that.
2:32 Ben Stiller as Joaquin Phoenix is priceless. Awkward but priceless.
2:38 All I can think when I look at Jessica Biel’s dress is “it’s not a tumor!!”
2:44 Comedy montage was pretty funny- as it should have been. The laughing during The Reader was classic!
2:52 Does no one remember the Beyonce induced disaster that was the 2005 Oscars? Who asked her back? They should be strangled with her red carpet dress.
2:59 That musical was a cluster#%@* of terrible. I had really high hopes and they were dashed. It could have been so good.
3:09 I am glad Heath Ledger won because his performance was amazing, but I can’t watch the speech from his parents. It makes me nervous.
3:41 The special award of the year. This is my cue to take a break and in tonight’s case, a nap. UPDATE: Jerry Lewis just gave the shortest speech for that award that I have ever heard- he is my favorite.
3:56 I have to say that I miss when they had 4 or 5 song nominees and spread out the songs through the whole show. John Legend does redeem it a bit though.
4:01 We don’t actually have to take Zac Efron seriously as an actor now do we? I revolt. He could turn in an Oscar worthy performance in every movie he does from here on out but I will always see him in that wildcats uniform singing “getcha getcha getcha getcha head in the game!!”
4:16 I like the memorial montage every year but on the other hand it is like going up to someone and saying , “Remember that so and so died. Me too.” But awww Van Johnson, Paul Newman, and Sydney Pollack…sad.
4:19 I will always love Reese Witherspoon with my whole heart. Her dress is unique and lovely, but in the words of my mother, “did you touch a brush to your hair today?”
4:24 I love that the Oscars are filled with the most beautiful haute couture dresses and the commercials in the middle are for JCPenny and some girl is wearing a denim halter top. Ironic, no?
4:27 Is it just me or will Shirley McClain always be Ouiser? Who is Melissa Leo? Has Anyone seen this movie? Nicole Kidman’s dress has feathers and I am so jealous- I love feathers. Kate finally won!!! She is the Oscar’s Susan Lucci no more!
4:40 Adrian Brody needs a haircut; he looks like he is still in The Pianist. Sorry, I am busy praying that Sean Penn doesn’t win.
4:47 Can I just go to bed yet? One more!
Verdict: The movies this year as a whole were crap. The Dark Knight should have at least been nominated for best picture. No one wore anything that terrible. Hugh Jackman did a bang up job what little he was on stage. It’s still my favorite night of television.
