A bit about Oscar

Not too much to say about the Oscars. The Dude won. Yay for The Dude.

In our work Oscar pool, my friend K. who ALWAYS wins, was the only person to pick Hurt Locker and Bigelow. I hate her guts more every year. I'm giving up on the Oscar pool! Of course I did eat yummy pizza and drink white wine at her place, so I can't hate her too much.

The most appropriate Oscar moment was to have the wretched, decrepit James Taylor sing for the calvacade of dead people. The Voice of Death presents Death! Bravo.

P.S. Alec Baldwin looked good, but not as good as George. Oh, George. He makes turning 49 in 2010 a little easier to take.

but gorgeous george (unappealing to 14 year-old girls apparently) seemed a little dour

and mr alec looked more than good

I think james taylor was actually singing for the dead from the realm of the already dead, non?

He sings pretty good for a dead guy.

Will George ever look bad regardless of age???

I watched most of it live because Monday was a holiday here (we are 19 hours ahead I think). However, the schmaltz and the waxy, wrinkle free women always gets me and I can never watch the whole thing - I'm concerned that Sandra Bullock is now, apparently, 'deeply in love' with her co-nominees....

Awards as predicted, now we can get on with our lives!
PS - how lovely did Penelope Cruz look? She is always stylish. How creepy did La Streisand look?

Well, occasionally George gets the old-man-turkey-neck thing, but I suppose if that is the worst that happens to him we can rest easy.

Penelope Cruz always looks gorgeous. Around here, she showed up in heavy-rotation in a mascara commercial that was shown every 10 minutes or so. The joke became that, hey, let's all buy that mascara and we will all look just like Penelope. That's how it works, right?

Sandra Bullock did not look like herself, maybe she has had some less than successful plastic surgery? She used to be so cute, now her face is long and stretched. MEOW!
