    An overall good show, but a few surprises, IMHO...

    I didn't expect Adrien Brody to win, but I do believe he deserved it. He was simply wonderful in The Pianist.

    I was surprised/disappointed when Julianne Moore went home empty-handed. I didn't really expect her to win for The Hours, but she was amazing in Far From Heaven. That being said, though, I figured it would either go to NK or RZ.

    Roman Polanski winning Best Director??? That definitely got a "Wow!" from me. The Pianist is an incredible movie, though. This is only the sixth time in history that the winner of the Directors' Guild of America award and the Oscar have gone to different people (Rob Marshall won the DGA award).

    Eminem winning an Oscar for Best Original Song!?!?!?!?! Interesting how he was the only one who didn't perform on the show...

    I felt sorry for Julianne, but wonder whether being nominated twice somehow split her vote

    I was please CZJ won for Chicago because the movie definitely came alove for me during her scenes.

    Eminem winning was a shock for me, not because I don't think it should have, but simply because I didn't think it wuld get the votes.
    Thought CZJ and Queen Latifah did a great job with their song.
    They sounded great imo.

    Adrien Brody struck me as a class act.
    I'm glad they turned off the music and let him speak.
    Julia Roberts and Halle Berry spoke for ages when they won.

    I agree, Fluff. I haven't seen the movie yet, but isn't it sung by CZJ and RZ in the movie? I had read that TPTB tried to get RZ to sing last night, but she turned 'em down...said she didn't think she could pull it off in front of such a big audience (in the theater and on TV)...

    I heard that too Lobes.

    Good news for QL though because she really did a great job.

    I think so, too, Fluff...though I must admit that I was quite impressed with CZJ's voice...

    I doubt we'll see it in the theater, but we've already decided that we'll be buying the DVD when it's released in August...

    Did you see poor Nicole Kidman trying to get the band to shut up during her speech? I think she forgot to mention her other child (she does have two, right?). She was waving her hands and yelling, "Stop!" with such urgency, I assumed it had to be kid-related. The band just held their note till she left the stage. I thought that was really sad.

    'Course, the band got off on an obnoxious foot by cutting off those four special effects guys at the start of the show.

    My favorite laugh-out-loud moment was when we got a look at Renee Zellweger as they announced the nominees for Best Actress. She REALLY looked ordinary, even homely, compared to everybody that had just gone before her. And her face was shriveled into this weirdly belligerent grimace. What a churl!
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey
