Oscar Night 3:59 a.m.

We did some checking, and we found that the Oscars started 30 minutes later than last year, which doesn't bode well for our plans for sleeping. It is quite possible that I will still be up when Mr. MarathonMum wakes up for work in one hour's time.

Clint is translating for Enrico. Who knew Clint knew Italian? He truly is a multi-talented man. They just panned the audience, and Kate Winslet's brow is furrowed, as if she's trying to translate it herself. Anne and I just deduce that Clint doesn't actually know Italian, but he's reading it off a telepromter.

They just showed the balcony where Enrico's family is sitting, and I could SWEAR that's Idi Amin sitting next to Enrico's wife. But wait, Idi's dead. So I don't know who that man is.

Hooray. That's over, but it'll be another flipping commerical.

The gentleman sitting next to Enrico's wife is Legendary Record Producer (I am pretty sure he copyrighted the title - capitals and all) Quincy Jones. He must have produced some of the soundtracks, which are pretty amazing. NPR did a great piece on Enrico last weekend.
