The Oscars Post
You know what? I've been randomly Googling for like 15 minutes in the hopes of finding something interesting to say about last night's Academy Awards and frankly, I don't think it's gonna happen. You know that feeling when you're at a restaurant and you're pretty excited about ordering your dinner 'cause it sounds really great on the menu and then you get it and it's like, "Eh. It's ok." And then the waitress comes over and is all "How WAS EVERYTHING??" and you're like, "Yeah, great" but not really in the realm of the convincing? That's what the Oscars were like. Loved the French accents on display ("Sssank you life! Sssank you love!") and the little interchange between Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen. Hated the fact that Colin Farrell couldn't be fussed to wash his hair and that the opening sequence was snatched from an Intro to Animation midterm at Cal State Northridge mere minutes before the show. But as far as Big Moments go, it was like that ok dinner - maybe under-seasoned but who really cares, let's just get out of here. Except for Diablo Cody, who is tight.
