Random thoughts of a Brit living in the Imperial Valley of California

The Oscars

without comments

I don’t usually watch the show but found myself in front of it last night. Kinda boring, no controversy to spice it up, not enough statues to Brits. But I did want to complain about Chris Rock. First, why the hell did everyone give him a standing ovation just for walking on stage? And whats the deal with the anti-Bush jokes in his opening monologue? I’m no fan of Bush but this is supposed to be entertainment, just because you’re a “celebrity” and have a captive audience doesn’t mean you should use it a platform for your views. Its just poor taste for the host to do it. Another low light – Dustin Hoffman presenting best film; was he drunk? high? asleep?? Way to spoil the big announcement, Dustin.

But there were some highlights: Natalie Portman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kirsten Dunst and Halle Berry were all mighty fine!
