Actually, he's defending its validity of being brought up by appealing to their knowledge of science and genetics - which is irrelevant to whether or not what they're saying is true.

Yes, men feel an urge to have sex, but this does not mean that all men thus feel an unchecked urge to cheat on their significant others in order to have as many children as they can. No study can prove to me that my behavior doesn't exist.

Kathryn Bigelow is hot.

Best moment nobody in the audience laughed at...

When the winner of Best Foreign Language film said he was happy that Na'vi wasn't a recognized language in the category.

This. I'm cool with Mo's open relationship - whatever works. But I don't like that it's one-sided. It's a half-open relationship, call it for what it is.

Yes, thank you. That's why the raised eyebrows on my part.

Lowest points of the Oscar ceremony: Breakdancing and the horror montage. Also the Kanye West moment as mentioned above and seeing the Twilight stars as well as Miley Cyrus speak on stage (shudders).

The horror montage was completely unnecessary, it was nice but unnecessary. I guess Adam Shankman needed an excuse to have Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner on stage and to show a clip of Twilight.

and why was that movie, Young Frankenstein, Edward Scissor Hands, and Beetlejuice in a horror movie montage?

Yeah, that seems like a good guess. He seemed to take a lot of personal liberties (i.e. that and his John Hughes lovefest), so I really felt like I was watching the Oscars that Adam Shankman always wanted to see. I doubt anyone enjoyed it more than he did.

And I personally find "Twilight" to be horrifying, for different reasons, so it didn't seem too out of place. But the clip was strange - it was so incredibly short, and there weren't even any "vampires" or wolves, so it almost seemed like a subliminal thing that got slipped in there.

Why wouldn't they go in the horror genre?

Young Frankenstein and Beetlejuice are horror comedies, yeah...

Edward Scissorhands I would say is fantasy.

I didn't watch the ceremony, but I did click on that link provided by Shades., which took me to Salon and, ultimately, to this assessment of the Oscars:
Salon wrote:
How did they do it? As crazy as it sounds, this year's Oscar festivities were dynamic, funny and moved along at a good clip. Hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin were hilarious, there were great jokes by everyone from Tina Fey to Ben Stiller, and the speeches were less long and dull than they've been in years. For once, no one rambled on forever and agents were rarely thanked. Not only that, but the usual endless tributes that serve no purpose whatsoever were gone, cut down to a great John Hughes segment and an entertaining horror-movie montage. Best of all, the Best Original Songs were not performed, which means we weren't forced to sit through two more blandly upbeat tunes with those old familiar Randy Newman melodies you've heard on every Oscar night for decades now. And I think we can all agree that an Oscar night without a Disney ballad performed or a long, rambling Lifetime Achievement acceptance speech is a winner in anyone's book.


I was wondering if people agreed, disagreed?

I agree, it did move at a quick pace, even though is ran around 3.5 hrs. Definitely the best of the last few years, nothing memorable, but painless as possible.

Bettlejuice maybe, but Edward is a fantasy, and Young Frankenstein is just a comedy. It is about a monster, but there is nothing about it that makes it a horror comedy. We might as well consider Monsters, inc. and Monsters vs Aliens horror.

Monsters v. Aliens was kind of horrifying to watch.

Is it a coincidence he played Malkovich's son in Man in the Iron Mask?
