It's really like politics and has nothing to do with the real quality of the artist. With this in mind, it's difficult for me to take it seriously anymore. I'll try to find a link for what I saw.
    I really only watched to see Ricky because I find his hosting to be really funny.

    But it's painfully obvious that there is much more of a political campaign to get movies on here with some of hte movies popping up or acting. It's not the best. It's just the best marketed.

    Not sure if this was mentioned, but I didn't recognize Christina Aguilera. While I am not saying she is overweight in normal standards, she has gained a bit of weight.

    I think what some of the industry people are in an uproar about is how brutally honest he was about the "business" aspects of award season.
    Also, I have to say he really said a lot of things that many people are/were thinking. At least for those that I know.

    I think those poor, sensitive celebrities are just used to having their butts kissed all the time. Well, they can go to the Oscars for that.

    I read that reps for many celebs have already called the HFPA to complain about Ricky. I'll bet at least two of those calls came from reps for Tom Cruise and John Travolta for the gay Scientologists bit. I thought the people who seemed bitter about his jokes - Robert Downey Jr., I'm looking at you - would have come off MUCH better if they'd shown a sense of humor and just gone with it. Steve Carrell was perfect - he doesn't take himself too seriously. I thought the Tim Allen joke was funny, 'cause really, Home Improvement was a LONG time ago and all he's done since then is pretty much voice work. He's not even in the same galaxy as Tom Hanks.

    Inexplicably, Angelina Jolie is on all kinds of best dressed lists for that green thing. I don't get it. I thought it was horrid. I think this is more of the media just sucking up.

    I agree her dress was hideous. It looked like something Grandma would wear. Then again, I always think her clothes are pretty horrid. I guess the positive is....it wasn't black!

    I looked at that dress and thought, "Oh look, she's borrowed a dress from Betty White!" - it was far too matronly for her, and it looked like the material from an old chesterfield from Grandma's parlour.

    I didn't like Angelina's dress either, but I did like Anne Hathaway's. I think with the open back and the champagne color, the dress she wore didn't have the same dowdy feel Angelina's did.

    The dress that I keep seeing raves over that I really didn't like though was Emma Stone's peach dress. I see it on a number of best-dressed lists, but to me it made her appear so orange that it was difficult to tell where the dress ended and her skin began. Paired with her blond hair, the color palette was just all wrong to me.

    I actually didn't mind Angelina's dress, but this comment is all sorts of awesome.

    Everyone in Hollywood seems to be jumping on the anti-Gervais bandwagon (only positive comment was from Christina Bale, from what I saw). Harvey Weinstein said something about making sure he (Gervais) never worked again. Calm down, people.


    I'm surprised no one has really mentioned Natalie Portman's speech where she commented on how her fiance should be up for best actor as he (his character) said the he wouldn't sleep with her (her character) when he totally wanted to sleep with her. I thought that was crass, particularly with her parents in the audience.

    Good grief. Weinstein is a jackass and everyone else needs to get over themselves. Al Pacino told reporters he enjoyed the show and I saw little interviews with a number of other people who basically said that Hollywood could stand to be knocked around a bit.

    Kathy Griffin has made her career out of making fun of celebrities and it hasn't hurt her any. Yes, she's been banned from some talk shows, but I doubt she cares all that much.

    The rumor is that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes won't be going to the Oscars because Anne Hathaway made fun of Katie on SNL. Really though, was the any reason those two needed to be an the Oscars anyway?

    Bruce Willis' reaction to Gervais was classic. I love that the man doesn't take himself too seriously, and can handle a little jab. Introducing Bruce Willis as Ashton Kutcher's dad was very funny.

    According to the Daily Mail, Willis' comment on Gervias was, "He was fantastic, he killed it, he did great."
