Notes on the Oscars

I liked the Academy Awards this year, and I haven’t said that in ages. I didn’t even watch last year. Here are a few of my observations.

Who knew Hugh Jackman could sing and dance? (Not to mention how he wore that tux. Wowzers.)

Wasn’t Penelope Cruz gracious? Wasn’t her speech touching? And her gown stunning?

Weren't there prettier gowns and more elegant hairdos this year?

Did you notice the big, chunky jewelry? I kind of liked it.

Did you feel awkward for Jennifer Aniston as she stood before Brad and Angie? I did.

Didn’t Eva Marie Saint look terrific? Didn’t Goldie Hawn look . . . okay, help me out here.

Is it me or has Robert Downey Jr. become an absolute hunk?

Doesn’t Tina Fey seem to sparkle wherever she is?

I didn’t want to see "Wall-e" before. I do now.

Were you silently encouraging the young oriental man who could barely manage his "Sank yous."?

Ben Stiller’s schtick – not so funny.

Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, Kate Beckinsale, Kate Hudson, Kate Collins . . . . I’m just saying.

The two young actors from Slumdog Millionaire – didn’t you just want to eat them up? How adorable are they?

Okay, your turn. What are your observations? Did you even bother to tune in? Do you make it into a fun evening with friends? Have you seen the movies up for best picture? Did your favorite win?

I know – way too many questions. Pick a few and share. Please? Sank you.

Have a great week,
"The" Kate ;-)
