Ooh La La Pt. 2

Okay, a couple of reactions, in no particular order...

ELLEN! SO AWESOME! I once got into a bit of an argument in which we were deciding who we would clone if we could pick two people to clone (not for the purposes of repopulating the earth, mind you, just two people that we think the world would benefit from having two of) and I picked Ellen, and nobody agreed with me, and now I feel totally vindicated.

Why is Jack Nicholson bald? I'm thinking either (a) cancer or (b) a show of solidarity with Britney?

I loved those shadow dancers. I thought the whole show was really well written and produced, not lame like so many of the recent Oscars. Although, on the flip side, I felt like a lot of the acceptance speeches were quite dull, except Forest Whitaker's. And I liked it when Alan Arkin thanked all his teachers.

Is it weird that I was disappointed that I didn't recognize many of the "in memoriams"?

Can Will Smith's kid read?

I want to BE Beyonce.

The Departed is so awesome and I don't understand why Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio didn't get nominations along with Marky Mark. Even though I still think Eddie Murphy shoulda won. I just bought the Departed as a birthday gift for someone but I'm thinking about keeping it for myself...

So I think I did fairly well with the predictions, huh? I got Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actress, Documentary, Adapted Screenplay, and Original Screenplay.

Ooh La La, Oscar Night

Watching the "pre-game" show...loved Al Gore saying that if there was a movie of his life, he would want William Hung to play him! Big question of the night - is Gore REALLY going to announce his candidacy for '08?!? I don't know.

A couple predictions...

Best Picture: The Departed (SO amazing!)
Best Actor: Forest Whitaker (I didn't actually see ANY of the movies in this category)
Best Actress: Meryl Streep (that's all)
Best Supporting Actor: Eddie Murphy (his scenes were my favorite parts of Dreamgirls!)
Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Hudson (so talented)
Best Director: Martin Scorsese, the Departed (finally)
Best Documentary: An Inconvenient Truth (duh - I'd bet the farm on this one - did ANYBODY even see any of the other nominees?)
Best Animated Feature: Cars (I love the way the windshields are the eyes instead of the headlights, like most animated cars)
Best Song: Listen from Dreamgirls (why the heck wasn't that I'm Telling You song nominated?)
Best Original Screenplay: Little Miss Sunshine (this movie's gotta win SOMETHING)
Best Adapted Screenplay: The Departed (only one I saw in this category)

Okay, I'm not doing all the lame categories like film editing and sound mixing. BOR-ing.

Okay, back to watching the show...we'll see how psychic I am!

Excuses, Excuses

So, if anybody's wondering why I haven't been blogging, I enjoyed Vegas SO much I decided to quit my job as an energy consultant and become a showgirl. But it's a cruel, cruel world, so I'm back. ; )
