I thought we should have a post dedicated to discussing the Oscars. What are your thoughts?
Highlights for me? Cate Blanchette winning. I thought her Katharine Hepburn was vivacious and wonderful. Million Dollar Baby was a favorite too–and I’m glad to see all those involved rewarded for producing such a fine movie. However, my favorite moment was when Born into Brothels won in the documentary category. That was one of the most affecting films I’ve ever seen–beautiful and tragic and hopeful all at once. I thought Chris Rock was okay, but not spectacular. No one looked too crazy, except Laura Linney looked like a trucker did her hair.
