Oscars: 2:02 a.m.

Sweet merciful God: it looks as though we're not going to have to listen to all of the Best Song nominees in their entirety this year. Maybe we will finish up before 5 a.m. this morning. I REALLY would like to get to bed before Mr. MarathonMum gets up at 5:10 a.m.

T-Bone Burnett just wins, which has got to be the greatest name of a winner ever, though not the best name of a winning song. That honour would go to: "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" (2006).

Tina Fey and Robert Downey Jr. are pretty funny. Man, I wish "30 Rock" was on a regular time on a regular channel, rather than channel 129 at 10 p.m. on random days.

Hurt Locker wins its first award, and I'm cheered to hear that the writer who won is a former journalist who wrote

I just thought, "Who is that with Matthew Broderick." Oh! Molly Ringwald, and they're both doing a nice tribute to John Hughes. I'm sure this is making all of us Children of the 80s choked up

"Ferris Bueller's Day Off": Definitely in my Top 10 favourite movies of all time. "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

Now a nice assemblage of the Class of John Hughes (Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hal, Matthew Broderick, Mac Culkin and Judd Nelson). It has to be said: Judd Nelson hasn't aged well.

And where is Emilio? And Andrew McCarthy?

All women aged 35-47 start weeping simultaneously.

But Andrew McCarthy, having seen him in that Brooke Shields show a few years ago, has aged FANTASTICALLY WELL. I think he'd still be on My List.

Make-up...Star Trek was surprisingly good. Ben Stiller announcing...hilarious...YES! I do want to see Young Victoria though.

"Young Victoria" was great: classic, and classy, British costume drama. Andrew actually watched it with me because they were learning about Queen Victoria in school.

As a bonus, they filmed part of it in Greenwich, which always cheers me.
