    I'm glad Alan Arkin won, but Eddie probably would have given a better speech.

    I don't particularly like the dancing vignettes... But I guess it could be worse.

    Sara Ramirez! What we've all been waiting for!

    The Dove commercial winner? Not so much.

    And... its the crappy Randy Newman Movie Song we get every few years. Oh wait. Someone who can actually sing is doing it this time.

    Wait. Two songs in a row? Strange direction choice. But the Melissa Etheridge song is a great one, even if we have to see lots of Al Gore shots while she sings.

    God, I love Melissa Etheridge's voice.

    Lord. Even with all of the public speaking practice he's had lately, Al is STILL wooden.

    Click. Whirr.

    And the Oscars aren't exactly trying to shake the "Hollywood is too liberal charges" people level against it, are they?

    Helen Mirren really does look great for "an old broad". Or a young one, actually.

    Great dress, makeup, etc.

    And hearing her read the fractured English full name of the Borat movie is a nice crack-up thing.

    This whole deal with reading bits from screenplays though... not sure it works.

    Whoa. This "The Departed" screenwriter dude is like Comic Book Guy mixed with Peter Jackson, with doofy flippy hair added.
