I'm enjoying watching the Oscars tonight, but am disappointed that my boy Jake G (yes, he IS mine--just ask Jud. Grin) didn't win for BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. Still, he was fun to watch on the red carpet.
So far, the funniest thing was the montage that supposedly proved that there had never been any homoerotic subtext during the classic westerns. Lots of "take my piece" kind of moments, and quite hysterically done. I'm also laughing at the "ads" lobbying for best actresses. Especially the one for Reese's "all American ad." Is it me, or was this year's Oscar ceremony a bit more fun? Not nearly so boring?
I wish Matt Dillon had gotten an Oscar for CRASH--his role made that movie for me.
Oh, and then there's John Stewart's definition of pimp, as in Hustle and Flow: "Sort of like an agent, with a better hat." Ahem. Just don't let any pimps try to write books, or we'll be in trouble.
