Reaction to the Oscars

  • Dear Lord, Baldwin and Martin were dreadful. Their pot-shots were so banal and easy to joke. Did they practice in the Catskills or something? Even their absurdism didn't work for me; seriously, how is a Hitler memorabilia joke funny outside of MST3K?
  • Doing the Robot to Up's score. No sense.
  • Note to self: Don't make a quality short documentary. Your attention-grasping producer will take away all your dignity.
  • Edward Scissorhands and Marathon Man are horror films. Now I know.
  • The Actor and Actress special intros are an interesting experiment, but the slow pace of this ceremony make them annoying.
  • Tom Hanks really hates build-up.
  • Neil Patrick Harris would have been the best example of a bait-and-switch and a better host.
  • I only wanted one person to win an award. And it was given out. Congrads, Bigelow.
