You know what? I stayed up until midnight watching these Oscars and writing a good million words (or something like 2,500, I don’t know) by hand in a notebook. I can’t stay up much later transcribing them, and the scanning process will be flimsy. You’ll get them later.
That said, I was pleased with the process. Hugh Jackman was unimpressive but the ceremony wasn’t terrible, the speeches were reasonable, and the results were pretty good – especially Sean Penn! Way to upset the narrative, guys!
I can’t be the only person who thinks that Sophia Loren has become angry in her advanced years, surely?
Now everyone should go out and see Slumdog Millionaire, the little movie that could ’08.
After that, look at Mark’s Liveblog Hoedown.
