    Pan's Labyrinth won Art/Set Direction! Love that movie.

    Maggie Gyllenhall looks great, but she still needs posture lessons.

    Even she sort of has crap on her shoulder. It's just a strap, and it looks much much better than Nicole or JHud, but I smell a crappy trend. The "be asymmetrical and highlight one shoulder" trend?

    It's been a long time since we had a really crappy bunch of dresses at an awards show (County music awards shows notwithstanding, of course ). Lately it seems as if there are really only a few dresses that are really bad. Maybe everyone got comfortable. Even though some of them look really bad, the fashion coverage tomorrow will be a lot more entertaining!

    I liked Maggie's dress.

    Didn't watch the red carpet show, but I did see Helen Mirren's gown and she looks fabulous, as always. I think I said this back when she won the Golden Globe, but I want to be Helen Mirren when I grow up.

    Good Lord, what's with the white bo 'fro, Will?

    Maggie Gyllenhall looked awesome on the pre-show ( she is one of the most under-rated actresses we have).

    As far as the broadcast, Ellen is awful.

    Ricky Bobby? Why are we supposed to care about Will's crappy Ricky Bobby movie? Confusing intro. Love his 'fro hair though.

    And... Jack Black doing that whole "I'm singing jokes Operatically" thing.

    John C. Reilly? Sigh. This is getting cheesy. He needs his clown makeup.

    They needed Jim Carrey to make this work. Honestly. It didn't.

    This is how they try to get us through "boring" awards like "Makeup"?

    Another win for Pan's Labyrinth!

    Okay, I did like the stuff in the song about Helen Mirren

    I think they'll mostly say that Ellen bombed.

    I loved Pan's Labyrinth and I'm glad they are winning awards.

    I was thinking they needed Steve Carrell.

    I'm loving watching Will getting a kick out of his kid.

    Must they seat Jack - in the requisite sunglasses - in the front row at every awards show?

    Shouldn't they be doing Supporting Actor or Actress about now?
