Brief Oscar Notes
Monday, 2005 February 28 - 12:58 am
Just a couple of observations here.

Since I didn't even see most of the movies on the Oscar-nominated list this year (terrible, I know... that's what happens when you're not dating, you have no one to see movies with you), I'm not really qualified to comment on whether the "right" people and movies won. So I won't even try. I just have a few random observations.

Chris Rock was pretty funny. He was a little restrained, I thought. He took a big gamble with his routine comparing A-list actors with less-famous replacements. "You want Tom Cruise, and all you can get is Jude Law? WAIT." Some folks might take offense there... like Sean Penn did.

Beyonce was unbelievable. She looked beautiful, and who knew she could REALLY SING like that? Her talents are being wasted on that pop/R&B stuff she churns out. She made Josh Groban seem like a nervous schoolboy in their duet. Oh, I'm going to go buy that song from "Les Choristes" on iTunes... I liked it.

Boy, the ladies sure looked good tonight. Cate Blanchett looked particularly stunning. Gwyneth Paltrow looked great, but then, she always looks great. What was it Chris Rock called her? "The only woman to breast-feed an Apple."

It looked like "The Aviator" was going to be the runaway winner tonight... until "Million Dollar Baby" swooped in at the end. Poor, poor Martin Scorsese... snubbed again. He's 0 for 5 now.

Annette Bening lost to Hilary Swank for best actress again! Huh. Jamie Foxx wins best actor... no surprise, and good for him. I didn't see the movie, but he really did seem like Ray Charles in all the clips that I saw.

"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" won best original screenplay! And "The Incredibles" won best animated feature! Hooray! Someone in the Academy must have read my reviews.

Okay, that's all. Sometime soon I'll catch all the movies that I missed, and maybe then I'll have more to say.
