Random Thoughts 4.5 (Oscar Edition)

-WTF was up with that dance section. Not that it wasn't interesting to see hip-hop and ballet mixed, but as far as I could tell there wasn't any connection to the movies they were supposed to be "interpreting".

-Sandra Bullock? Really....? Paging Miss Tomei...

-The Hurt Locker looks like a really good movie and I added it to my Netflix queue Sunday morning. Now that it won so big, I'm curious to see if it lives up to expectations.

-I got the feeling that the expanded ten film best picture entries were done by the Academy just so they could say they nominated certain films. (District 9, Up, and Avatar)

-Did they make a mess out of the "In Memory Of.." segment this year? Blowing by some names, lingering longer on others, missing a shot of one of the deceased names in broadcast and having those multi-clip displays.

-Looking at that audience there seemed to be a lot of bored people.

-The introduction of the Best Actor/Best Actress nominees by friends and co-stars, weird?

-Glad that Jeff Bridges got some recognition. The Dude abides..

-loved the Morgan Freeman narrated bit about sound. I could listen to him read the phone book. (not to mention they used scene from The Dark Knight)
