Oscars

with 5 comments

Love it, hate it, disrespect it, but can’t ignore it. Its time again for the pomp and glamor of the most celebrated of cinematic awards, the Oscars. Last year I managed to live-blog the event, suggest cocktails, offer a roundup etc – all thoroughly entertaining.

Unfortunately this year, I am further removed from the action, at work and even if I wasn’t, would you beleiev it, there is no live telecast in Australia !!! How rural.

Anyway, hope Jon Stewart does a good job of hosting. He did okay two years ago, and I suppose he could not do anything worse than Ellen Degeneres did last year.

  2. @Ruhi: Channel 9 figured that no-one would be watching the Oscars late morning/early afternoon on a Monday. They actually played a recording at 830 in the evening. go figure.

  3. I thought he did better than 2006. An outsider’s sarcasm brings necessary sanity to Hollywood’s backscratching love-fest, although it possibly hurts the ratings a bit.

    No Country is easily my favorite best picture winner since Annie Hall. It was also a very strong year for documentaries — Iraq – no end in sight, Sicko and Taxi Ride to Dark Side are all must-sees.

  4. If you are a regular @ Jon Stewart’s ‘The Daily Show’, then most of his punches this year were stale – the same old writer’s strike or ‘indecision 2008’. i still remember Chris Rock…i guess it was 2005…boy he was good!
