Oscars: 3:16 a.m.

Kristen Stewart is there to introduce the Horror Movie montage. Hey, Kirsten, it's the Oscars, would it kill you smile? Would it kill you to smile EVER??

Morgan Freeman is teaching me all about Sound Editing, which is actually interesting, but isn't going to get me into bed any earlier. They're showing scenes from "A Dark Knight." Do you think this is the Academy's way of apologising that it wasn't a nominee for Best Picture last year?

Kathryn Bigelow just stood to congratulate the winner of Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing. Every time I see her, I think, "Really? You're almost 6o? Could I please have the name of plastic surgeon or your oxygen chamber supplier?"

(Note to self: Really must go see "The Hurt Locker." Should probably see, "Inglorious Basterds" too.)

Big mistake by Sandra Bullock, who looks as nervous as all get out. She says, "And the winner is..." rather than the now encouraged "The Oscar goes to..." (because EVERYONE is a winner, after all).

Now for the "I See Dead People" montage: one way to get around the clap-0-meter to see who was the best linked is to have James Taylor sing. Cunning. How does Michael Jackson get in there? I know he was an International Superstar, but he was hardly Oscar material.

The memoriam section is always sad. Had no idea about Ron Silver.

I actually went back to IMDB to check about Paul Newman because I thought he only died last summer, but it was actually 2008.

Re. MJ. There was that best-forgotten gem: The Wiz. If it must be remembered, do it for Nipsey Rusell.

Maureen Stapleton said...

Fair enough. Forgot that one.

Resistance to chocolate tart wavering....

Don't give in. The lull is almost over. Here come the big awards!

Maureen Stapleton said...

The big awards better be coming. It's 4:10 a.m., for goodness sake.

I know! Not sure how you've managed so far. Mr. Marathon Mom will be up in an hour. My mister has been crashing for about an hour ago but he's trying to stay awake....this is longer than usual already.

I fear if I go to sleep that Avatar might win Best Picture.

Tarantino looks like he's already hit at the parties.

Maureen Stapleton said...

He always looks like that. The man does not clean up well.

I am painfully aware that I can't complain but I think I am getting tired...my spelling and grammar are failing me.
