Quick Recap: Oscars

Was it just me or....

Did Richard Jenkins totally get the shaft by getting Adrien Brody to present him?

Was Beyonce lip-synching?

Did Anthony Hopkins suck presenting Brad Pitt?!

As an anonymous commentor stated - what was up with Reese Witherspoon's plastic bra straps?

did Marissa Tomei seem REALLY uncomfortable sitting next to Mickey Rourke?

I don't know about you guys but I thought this was the best Oscars show in a really long time?! N

Re: Richard Jenkins getting shafted by Adrien Brody's lackluster intro: Ditto about whomever Nicole Kidman introduced. That's how lame it was, I can't even remember!

I'm still mixed over the intros in the first place. They seemed like sappy love letters in some spots but had certain authenticity in others. And you're right, depending on who did the introduction, some were great and others were wah-waaaahs. Tell me what to think Nikki....

Loved that Hugh Jackman. He is such a manly man but the fact that he can do a tap and song routine with such energy and gusto...WOW!. Loved that about him and he was the best host in a very long time. That's for sure.

Oh and PS - did Sean Penn thank his wife??? He started off by thanking his best friend but unless she has some code word moniker, I didn't think I heard her name at all. I loved the fact that he admitted he's not the easiest of guys to get along with because honestly, I do love him but he seems like a real dick to me.

See, I didn't like Hugh's singing.... it bugged me and in parts I thought he sucked. He also had a lot of spit stored up in the corner of his mouth that grossed me out.

Kyle said...

Yeah, totally agree with you about the spittle. Totally forgot. I did like him but I did constantly want to wipe him down.

Marlena said...

Well I went into awe every time Hugh was on the stage...spittle and all. Plus I was drunk so I couldn't be bothered with little things like spittle, lol. Honestly I don't remember much... I do remember that I was let down by the hyped up performance with Zack Efron(I'm not a teeny bopper or anything but they made it sound like it would be amazing and I wasn't amazed) It was good...but I wasn't amazed. Also I really enjoyed looking at Edward... um I mean Robert P. He looked very nice.

Kyle Sean Penn did NOT thank his wife (Robyn Wright Penn). I was listening for it since you always hear they are on the rocks. I agree, he seems like a jerk a lot of the time, but yeah he can act.

I LOVED the intros for the most part. Nicole Kidman's (for Angelina) sucked and so did Adrien Brody's and Anthony Hopkins. But I really liked the concept.

I thought Hugh Jackman did a fine job but I'm not a big fan. I enjoyed stuff like Tina Fey/Steve Martin, Ben Stiller/Natalie Portman more than I enjoyed the big song and dance numbers. Did you know that Seth Meyer and Ricky Gervais (my boyfriend!) did some of the writing??

RE: Sean Penn. I've read that he said Robin knew that he wouldn't thank her. I dunno....they have such a rocky relationship. I think I would have been more surprised if he had thanked her. Jerk move for sure...

I read he stayed at the parties until the wee hours - well after Robin went home. Wonder if he met up with Lindsay again??
