Just – look at this. Watch it all the way through.  Don’t make the mistake I did, which is laugh so hard that you close your eyes to keep the tears from escaping, because you will miss the good stuff. Some of which is cute, a la Amy Poehler and Patricia Clarkson, and some of which is flat out hysterical. Full Story

She was the silent producer. If they allowed four people up there, she should have been included. And we all know how much work she did. Because while she may not have been responsible for the filmmaking, Oscar is often more about how the film is presented, and less about how the film actually plays. Full Story

The thing with Seth MacFarlane is that the man creates all kinds of characters. I feel like you watch one of his episodes of his shows and you’ve seen them all, but let’s say for the sake of argument that they’re varied, at least a little bit -- in short, that he’s the kind of person who actually understands how human beings work. Full Story

This might be my favourite photo of all the photos taken last night. Look at him. Look at Jack Nicholson. When did he become your cuddly Uncle Oscar? And will this be George Clooney in 25 years? Remember, Jack was George and Leo and more when it was safer to be wild. Roman Polanski did what he did at Jack Nicholson’s house. Full Story

Most Oscar Alumni-esque: Sandra Bullock

I felt really strange about Sandra at the Oscars. I don’t know why exactly – I mean, part of me wishes she hadn’t worn a dress that showed side-bum skin, even faux side-bum that’s actually nude-coloured underlay. Her hair and stuff seemed kind of straightforward Sandra Bullock, so I don’t know why I couldn’t shake the feeling that she was out of place. Full Story

They were essentially saying the same thing, Daniel Day-Lewis and Ben Affleck, right? They were appreciating their supportive wives. Ben chose to phrase it so that it was his wife’s primary responsibility to “work” on their marriage. DDL acknowledged that his wife had to deal with his artistic eccentricities, and somehow it was charming, while Ben’s probably didn’t sit well with many of us, right? What’s the difference? Is it the accent? Is it that DDL is a more accomplished public speaker? And the way the Miller-Day-Lewises behave on the campaign circuit as opposed to the Afflecks? All of the above? And besides, my God, he is just such an elegant, elegant man. Full Story

Yes, I agree with most of you that BCoop looked kind of greasy, and not in the good way, with his hair all slicked back. But, unlike many, I’m a fan of the beard. Not just stubble, but a nice few days of mountain man. So he was already in my good books, even though it looked like it was going to be a tiny beard ponytail at one point. Full Story

Oscars Most Underthanked: Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson saved the Oscars telecast. That is not too bold a statement; it was in a really ruinous space there for a while. They gave out one award to the most predictable winner of all – even if you were rooting for her, it was a hell of a long time between it and the next piece of something interesting. Full Story

Duana and I just awwwweed over this. You might think we’re stupid. Or overtired. Check out Eddie Redmayne and his girlfriend Hannah Bagshaw last night at the Oscars. She’s wearing a green dress. Now click here. That’s from December, in New York, at an event honouring Hugh Jackman. Full Story

Suppose you’re an affable, lovable male actor in your 20s who’s generally respected and considered to be both talented and kind of a get-along guy – sooner or later you’re going to get asked to do something that is a little embarrassing or has the potential to be silly or great. Full Story

I hate red. I hate taffeta. Taffeta and red is like watching Big Bang Theory and Two And A Half Men back to back. It’s sh-t + sh-t, don’t care if it’s Valentino. And Jennifer Aniston chose to wear it last night at the Oscars. Look, credit to her for not wearing black again. But …that’s it. Full Story
