Oscars 2009

I think last mights Oscar show was probably one of the best I can remember.
I loved how they brought out 5 award winners each time to introduce the nominees and give it that personal touch.

Hugh Jackman did a great job and I liked the musicals spots.
Funniest moment was with Steve Martin and Tina Fey,
they are brilliant.

I didn't quite understand the Best song category.
None of them were anything we'll be humming in the future and why wasn't The Wrestler by The Boss nominated?

I loved seeing Sean Penn win best actor, knowing it will be a thorn in the side of Bill O'Reilly and other Fox news ilk.

The Reader is one of my favorite books, but I haven't had a chance to see the movie yet, I think Kate Winslet was a great choice to play Hannah.
It is on my list of must sees along with Milk.

I'm sure everyone knew Heath Ledger was going to win, that was a teary moment for me.
Last night was pure escapism , a couple glasses of Pinot Grigio and watching my favorite stars.
The camera showed me Robert Downey Junior many times, that was nice !

Though I do miss some of the oldies, I don't necessarily want to see them aging before me.
I wish they could have given Jerry Lewis an award back when he was still healthy, and I also wish Sophia had picked a more flattering dress.

I don't think older woman with saggy breasts should be wearing low cut dresses

That was a great review all favorite part was the new format for the awards...what a wonderful way to honor each nominee...I hope they will continue that! Sean's speech was great, but poor Sophia looked weird...bad dress, bad stance!

Sean Penn is an idiot and you are as well if you take "political" advice from that moron.
You are downright stupid if you think MOST Californians hate gays.

The fact remains, if you are homo or hetro, we have the exact same rights!
