OK, I got sucked in.  Was hoping to watch the Tivo'd C's game

Hugh Jackman's opening act was pretty humorous.

Now I have to keep watching to see my favorite part...when they show the montage of people who have died in the past year.  Always amazed to see how many familiar faces pass on.

Here it is Redz!

Latifah can sing!

hmm yeh she can sing. but did you notice all the digital enhancement? she sounded semi-robotic. i'm not a big fan of that type of thing.

definitely noticed that.

Also wasn't impressed with Beyonce's lip synching.

I liked Huge Jackman's opening number

Slumdog Millionare was a good movie, but it's pretty overrated.  "City of God" is a better movie that didn't get this kind of overkill hype when it came out.

My thoughts:

I don't watch enough movies  :-\

Same with me.  I haven't even heard of most of the movies.  I mostly watch sports and news.

Isn't if funny that when the Chinese girl lypsynched, people were absolutely outraged and now, we have Oscars and Super Bowls being blatantly lypsynched by our top artists and nobody says anything.

I thought that. I could say a few controversial things about the Oscars, but I wont.

As for the awards. Not sure about them. The three I definitely agree with are Heath Ledger and Penelope Cruz and Danny Boyle for Directing. Slumdog was good but not Oscar worthy.

I just think the Academy shot itself in the foot with the nominations.

I'm of the opinion that lip-synching during a live event is pretty weak, especially if you're not doing any dancing.  But the outrage about the Olympics was that it was a totally different girl singing.

It was a different girl, but still, it's not that much different.  Some people might say that it's wrong because they used a cuter girl, but most of the singers in our events today are there because of looks first, singing abilities second.  I just think it's pretty hypocritical to be crying shame when it's the Chinese people trying do adapt to the Western culture but it's perfectly acceptable when we have our artists lypsinching.

I hear you on this!  Frankly I usually wait until stuff comes out on video so that I can afford to see it.  $10 a pop for a movie these days is ridiculous (if I bring my wife it is $20 + $5 popcorn....).

Also, I rarely see all five movies in a category, so I can't really comment on which was the best.  That doesn't stop me from having an opinion though !

I love how Sean Penn acts like those that supported Prop 8 are so intolerant and he just insulted them on national television for their beliefs.  He regularly proves himself to be the most intolerant person in Hollywood.  What a tea bag. 

As I see it, Prop 8 was up for a vote and the Yes side beat the No side.  So, what's the problem again?  Maybe more homosexuals and their supporters should have gotten to the polls?  Stick that in your liberal pipe and smoke it, Milk.

I think the reason that this was such a big story was because the girl who sung the song wasn't allowed to perform it because she wasn't cute enough.
