Well, I watched the Oscars last night (or the second half of it, at least) and those shadow-puppet players should have Wonder-Twinned themselves into the shape of a paper bag with eyeholes. Worse even than last year, which I really didn’t think possible. My favorite moment-the last montage (besides the dead people montage). It was kind of like the wisecrack that John Stuart made last year about “a montage of montages”-but rather than seeing that as sarcasm about montage-saturation, the creative department of the Oscars said: “Hey, that’s a great idea!”

    I thought Ellen was fine, but that the entire ceremony was incredibly wooden and BORING this year. It makes me not want to watch again next year. It also made me appreciate how nice it was seeing Peter Jackson and co. accepting awards.
