And the Academy Award goes to...

Hi. I just want to thank the Academy for the opportunity to blog about this important event... achem. Sorry, got carried away there for a second.

eisa and I sat down to watch the Oscars last night. Well, kind of. She isn't really into the Oscars, so I caned her while I watched the Oscars. That is what I call the effective use of comprimise in a relationship.

I was like most of you and hoping for a Brokeback sweep. I will say that after hearing the theme music 1 bazillion times last night, my predicition was correct - I heard the theme in my dreams. I imagine it will plague me all through the day.

I thought it was unfortunate that the script writers couldn't figure out the proper vocabulary for describing Felicity Huffman's role in Transamerica. Come on Bruce Vilanch, you write for The Advocate, for pete's sake! Read your own magazine and get the lingo right! Sheesh.

Finally - a rare fashion stab by Boymeat. I know, I know, he who lives in a glass house and all that... but really, what the hell was sitting on Charlize Theron's shoulder? It was bigger than her head.

Were any of you as disapointed in Jon Stewart as I was? I was hoping for more. Though, the Bjork getting shot by Dick Cheney line was pretty cool.

Edit: One more thing. Did anyone else come to the conclusion that the Academy thought that Memoires of a Geisha was a beautiful film that sucked?

OK, I think I'm done now.

I actually thought Jon Stewart did a pretty decent job. I think part of the problem is there is little feedback/enthusiasm from the audience, since it seemed they weren't able to laugh at themselves.

I thought the funniest joke was when he said he was impressed that Cinderella man got nominated for Best Makeup for the daunting task of making Russell Crowe look like he got into a fight.

Yeah... I enjoyed his follow-up to that stating how he was gonna get beat-up after the show.

Nice to see you and I had similar Oscar-watching activities.

I thought perhaps she had the forethought to attach a pillow to her dress.. to nap on during the less interesting bits of the show.

The Russell Crowe jab about the makeup was good too.
I found the Oscars to be very lack luster this year.

I also though Jon was a little...eh... I mean it's not his usual venue that's for sure. Knowing that the show is being watched all over the world is probably a bit overwhelming. I'm sure alot of his jokes were not allowed. As much as Hollywood claims to be liberal they know who butters their bread.

Charlize Theron's dress was nasty.
Selma Hyack our sexed every woman in the audience

Do you ever notice that every year the best actress just seems to babble when they win?

Was glad that WETA cleaned house on the affect awards for Narnia and Kong.

We both found the show rather lack luster this year.
Which is a shame.

Salma Hayek was on? Man, that would have been worth getting cable for.

Charlize Theron looked like she had a bad taffeta growth that seriously needed to be removed. Where ARE those safety scissors when ya need them?

Reese Witherspoon...I expect it won't be the last we hear about being a "real woman".

Charlize's dress was BAD... but Naomi Watts' dress looked like she got into a fight with a wild animal on the way to the Oscars.

I thought Stewart started out kind of eh, but warmed up over the course of the night.

The evening was just okay (and this from a die-hard Oscar watcher) although I certainly perked up a bit at the ridiculousness of the performances of the songs from "Crash" and "Hustle and Flow." That show needed some Oscar cheesiness, and it got it. I SO did not need to see the groping scene from Crash acted out on stage...

I kind of like the "got into a fight with a wild animal" look.

You know I had a hard time thinking of a way to describe it last night and that just nailed it on the head!

*ha ha! I was only able to catch a glimpse or two of the Show...*Dammit! I missed Charlize...*

I heard a review of Jon's performance...and the folks all agreed that he could be offered to host for another 10 years...*

Can you believe that I still have not seen Brokeback?...

nice compromise...*

They might not write about them often... but I find that when they do, they get it right.

Didn't *everyone* think that Memoirs of a Geisha was a beautiful film that sucked?
Mar. 6th, 2006 08:26 pm (UTC)
I missed the Oscars this year as we were driving home from Arizona, and no one had offered to cane me during. *smile*

I'm hoping to catch some post-oscar things today, but first I must comment that this is quite possibly the gayest thread I have ever seen on your LJ. By gay I do not mean "lame" I meaning flamingly queer- "talking about dresses make-up and taffeta gay".

I love it!

At least Memoirs had something beautiful about it. Crash didn't. The acting sucked. The storyline was trite. And as a viewer, I don't appreciate being smacked repeatedly in the head with a novel point. It sucked, and I still want my money back.

Michelle Williams looked like she was wearing a gown soaked in a bad urine sample. Now, that's hot if you're into piss and she was actually drenched in it. But.....
