I'm at my daughter's place in NYC watching the Oscars. Her dog is not taking this a seriously as I am, but he seems intrigued by my score sheets and notebooks. The Kodak looks great, it's a cool set. As a host, Hugh Jackman is engaging, cheeky, hot! Could have done without the montages though. The 5 actor presentation thing was cool, but did not help with the length of the show. It's still too long. Most fun was the sheer joy from the folks with Slumdog Millionaire. Here are a few superlatives.
Best gown: Frida Pinto
Best tux: Hugh Jackman *sigh*
Best hair: Jennifer Aniston
Best acceptance speech: toss up between Justin Lance Black and Sean Penn
Best moment: Petit balancing the gold guy on his chin
I've got tomorrow off, so I get to sleep in. Then travel home and back to reality. Thanks to the Academy for a fun night and the film makers for a great year in film. On to the films of 2009!
