-I love Neil Patrick Harris – no one has more charisma and talent.
-I would watch Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin boil water.
-Seeing Martin and Baldwin point out the elephant in the room with both James Cameron and his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow earning Best Director nominations was awesome. Especially since Bigelow was sitting behind Cameron…
-Why did George Clooney look so angry after the hosts recognized Jeff Bridges for his Best Actor nomination?
-Penelope Cruz should wear that shade of red every day.
-So glad the theme song from Crazy Heart won. P.S. Could T-Bone Burnett be any taller?
-The trip down John Hughes memory lane was tremendous. Listening to Ally Sheedy, Matthew Broderick, etc. pay tribute to the movie man of the 80’s was something to remember.
-Unfortunately Macaulay Culkin looked like hell.
-Ben Stiller: on top of his game as always.
-Queen Latifah has come a long way since playing a lesbian/criminal in Set It Off. She looked stunning.
-Sigourney Weaver should also wear that shade of red on a daily basis.
-Hey Twilight kids: It would be impossible for the two of you to be any more boring.
-I literally laughed out loud when they showed Martin and Baldwin in Snuggies. HI-larious!
-How many actors does it take to present the award for Best Actor? Five big names paying their respects to five other big names. Very cool. Very very cool.
-Could Kate Winslet be more of a class act?
-LADIES AND GENTLEMAN: JEFF BRIDGES!!!
-Bridges’ speech included phrases like “groovy profession” when describing show business and he thanked the members of his cast such as “Bobby Duvall.” The way he honored his parents and family put a smile on my face and I’m not sure who was more excited for him, his wife or Maggie Gyllenhaal. Congrats to a fabulous actor in a fabulous movie.
-Gabourey Sidibe looked so happy to be there. It was refreshing.
-Good for Sandra Bullock! Her comedic timing is impeccable and I love that she is married to a badass like Jesse James. She deserves this award and she got it.
-I cannot believe that neither a woman nor a black man has ever won Best Director….until this year. Congrats to Kathryn Bigelow!
-And congrats to Tom Hanks for keeping it short and sweet.
-Everyone assumed Avatar was going to clean up at the Oscars this year but it was Kathryn Bigelow double fisting statues at the end of the night. A job well done for The Hurt Locker.
Yea the "Vampire" kids need to remember that they aren't vampires in real life…they are allowed to crack a smile and get a tan.
I think Maggie Gyllenhaal's dress was my favorite. I liked Miley Cirus's, but she kept standing like a linebacker with her shoulders all curved forward…not cute.
I actually didn't know Cameron and Bigelow were ex's so I guess that joke flew right over my head. Regardless, I too would watch Baldwin and Martin boil water….in their Snuggies.
Of course I was so thrilled to watch Jeff Bridge's accept his award. I guess he truly is The Big Lebowski in real life.
So nice to see Bigelow double fisting her statues. Luckily they kept her upright and balanced, b/c she looked like she was going to pass out from overwhelming shock.
It was odd that Clooney didn't crack a smile throughout the whole thing. Maybe he thought he was a vampire too?
p.s. See "The Hurt Locker" noooooow!!!!

Hahaha I think you're right! The "Vampire" kids really do think they are vampires in real life!
Who can we call about someone making a show where Baldwin and Martin boil water in Snuggies?
I usually love Clooney but he didn't look so thrilled to be there….don't be such a sore loser George!
Will see "Hurt Locker" asap I promise!
As usual I enjoyed your comments. It was a wonderful show.
