« Why Salem sucks compared to Portland | Main | Jim Huffman out of touch with Oregonians »

Plus the awards were predictable. And the way Streisand went on about a woman winning best director, it's obvious that award didn't go out on best job but based on something else. That's what the Oscars are about-- something else. I found it blah; and after the opening monologue with Baldwin and Martin, only watched off and on while doing something else.

OK, I just came across a report about one genuine unscripted weird moment at the 2010 Academy Awards that seemed strange to me when I saw it, but I wasn't sure what to make of it:

When the black guy started to accept the award for best documentary short, and was interrupted by the pushy woman who didn't make much sense, the back story is that the two of them (director and producer) weren't talking to each other after a rift. She surprised him by coming on stage and "doing a Kanye."

The best part, which sadly we didn't get to see, is the report that his 87 year old mother tried to block the woman from getting on stage with her cane. Ah, moments like those are what I love most about the Oscars.

And Clooney looked boring, annoyed, and wanted to have nothing to do with the camera in his face. That's not the kind of attitude that wins you oscars. HE definitely lost his charm....

I found Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin to be a poorly matched team, and I'm normally a huge fan of Martin's. I just didn't find them funny at all. Did anybody notice that a good few times when the camera panned the audience, people were not laughing. Ouch, I felt embarrassed sitting in my own living room.
