I thought NPo's dress was awesome too. Then again, my ratings are usually based off of what impression said dress gives of the goodies lying beneath it.

I constantly confuse Glenn Close and Meryl Streep. You are not alone.


I ALWAYS get Glenn Close and Meryl Streep mixed up! I really have to think before I say one of their names to make sure I have it right.

LOVED Kate Winslet's acceptance speech - the whistling dad thing was awesome. Just wished I had seen The Reader ahead of time, so I knew whether I thought she really deserved it, you know?

A Super Girl

I recommend Slumdog...but then again, it's the only one I've seen. The rest are already in the Netflix cue!


Spot on with your recap. Did you notice Amy Adams was sitting funny too in the seats? What's up with that?


Ditto your thoughts on Penelope Cruz. I have no idea why I hate her, but oh boy do I.


I'm having a huge crush on Liam Neeson these days. I watched him in Taken couple of weeks ago and caught the ending of Suspect the other day, and I just have to say that I googled him a lot this weekend. What a hunk! :) (I know, I know he could be my father, but I don't care.)

And this year I have to say that I watched most of the movies nominated. I loved Slumdog Millionaire, and think the music was awesome. But there was no dancing in the movie at all, until the end.

And I was so happy for Sean Penn, I think he did an amazing job in that movie. He really gets into his characters, and I love it.

Best Actress did a very cool acceptance speech. And I'm looking forward to seeing the Reader soon.


I hate Penelope Cruz too, and also, no idea why. Weird. I recommend Milk, because it was soooooooo fantastic, and Sean Penn and james Franco did such an amazing job with their characters.


I too haven't seen any of the winners-well, any of them! I would like to see Slum Dog and The Reader. I hear that Milk is a dud. I love Kate Winslet. She is just the classic Hollywood I think and she will be around for a long time. Her dad was too cute :) I only got to watch the first 10 minutes and then I went to lay in bed due to a horrible headache. Read about everything else or saw it on ET yesterday when I went home sick.


I forgot to tell you that you should give Penelope Cruz a chance. She has done some amazing work in Spanish movies. I don't think that translates the same way in American movies, but hey she got an Oscar, so I'll definitely be watching that movie. Plus Javier Bardem, ahhh. :)


Okay..I am right there with you with regard to Penelope's just HER!


i totally agree with you about heath's sis and his family coming together since they argued so much prior to all the awards shows about his possible win.


Haha -- funny comments. I was pretty excited that they didn't tape delay the Oscars, as they do in Hawaii (I would have to avoid the internet so the results weren't spoiled).

I'm with you on the dress favorites, though I also liked Natalie Portman's dress since it was in that bright pink. I was a bit underwhelmed by Kate's choice since she'd been so bright and colorful in the past (but was very happy she won).

As for movies, my personal favorite of the five was Benjamin Button but I know more people liked Slumdog. Just don't get your hopes up before you see anything or you might feel underwhelmed, which I think is what happened to Ted and I (whereas we saw Button on the day it came out). We didn't care for Milk but liked Frost/Nixon. The Reader was okay but it's a deep subject matter and kind of creepy to think of a 35 year old having sex with a 15 year old (since I'm almost that age and my nephew is only 16). The Wrestler was also good for the acting.
