I didn't realize the Oscars were last night. I thought they were tonight. I admit that I actually wanted to see the show. I enjoy learning about the documentaries and foreign films, since they don't generally get a lot of press, and I enjoy some of the musical numbers and acceptance speeches. Oh well....

I am glad to see that LotR and Peter Jackson finally got overdue Oscars. I'm not sure that RotK is the best of the three movies, but there were no other legitimate contenders this year either...unlike in previous years, when I felt Chicago was a better movie than TT and FotR deserved to win but lost to another great movie.

I haven't seen Lost in Translation, so I can't comment on Bill Murray, but I thought Sean Penn was very deserving for his performance in Mystic River, and I generally can't stand Sean Penn.

I have no opinion on the other categories. I am shocked by how few of the nominees I've seen. I guess, seeing as how I've been averaging a movie every two or three months, I shouldn't be shocked.

Billy Crystal sucked. You missed nothing, other than repeated comments that "there's no one left in New Zealand who hasn't been thanked."
Okay, and the Gregory Hines bit was sniffle-inducing, but that was it.

I wish I had seen the Gregory Hines bit. I always enjoyed his work.

It was short, part of their memoriam montage. They did a long piece on katharine hepburn, a short piece on gregory peck, and then moved into their montage of Everyone Else, which included Gregory Hines, and that's where the loudest emotional leak came from the audience.
