Haha, I actually rewatched Hurt Locker before the Oscars, huge improvment from the first dry viewing. Basterds was my favourite but I'm still glad Bigelow got the statue and Best Pic.

Also, Abbie Cornish not getting a nod is a fucking disgrace, to quote Didier Drogba.

Heh. One of my friends on Facebook is whining about how veterans call The Hurt Locker inaccurate. It's not as if it calls itself a documentary.

Meh. I've still yet to see a film that captures the country and the atomsphere of Irak so well.

You have to admit, though, they did do a lot of work to create that stuff. I think they should give awards for effort. But not the main award. Kind of like 'Best Foreign Film', which is like their special Olympics award, they should have an award for 'Most Effort Expended on Cinematography'. It certainly didn't look effortless, you must admit.

Yeah, I did. She looked better than Sandra Bullock, I'll give her that. But at most her dress was just a handjob.

That dress ccould have worked with better fabric, although the entire design concept of it was dated - and up close in HD, from what I remember her face looked like she'd had a lot of work done and was caked with makeup.

I find it hard to believe that Mo'Nique was ever a comedian. I'm suspicious... she's too damn serious all the time. And I'd like to bring Hattie McDaniel back from the dead and ask her how she feels about Mo'nique using her as some sort of personal mascot. But then, I'd like to do that every time someone acts like they're the second coming of some other actor.

I noticed that too, mentioned it earlier. It was so obvious and baffling. I also loved them heading into commercial break and saying that the best director award would be announced soon: ""Will it be the first female winner, the first African-American winner, or will Jason Reitman, James Cameron or Quentin Tarantino bring home the prize?" You'd think they wouldn't want to acknowledge or draw attention to the fact that they've never honored a woman or African-American.

Is there something I don't know about Mo'Nique? Is she a Black Panther? Because I kind of already find her to be a bit intimidating, in a strange way. I read the other day that she has an "open relationship" with her husband and they can have sex with other people. She hasn't, but she's pretty sure he has, and that's totally okay with her. :roll:
