Oscar Aftermath

The Academy Awards made me yawn. Let’s just say it was no Downton Abbey. Between that sea of cleavage that looked like one too many eggs sunny side up, and Jennifer Lawrence’s prat fall, it took everything I had to wait for Abe.

Yes, of course he won, he was president and loved theater don’t forget. Daniel Day-Lewis will always slam dunk any character he plays. I heard Tom Thumb is up next.

“But he’s so tall, Camille said, Tom was a midget wasn’t he?”

“The correct term is little person, and Dan will do what’s necessary Camille even if he has to surgically remove 8 inches off his height.”

I was surprised that Tommy Lee Jones was passed over for Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained. His performance in Lincoln was so moving. Word on the street is his bad toupee turned off the voters. Thaddeus Stevens actually wore a bad toupee. He was famous for it.

“You mean that wasn’t because Tommy Lee is bald as an eagle?” Camille said, shocked.

“Camille, come on. Tommy Lee is loaded, you don’t think he could have done better than that?”

“So that’s why it looked like road kill. I wondered.”

Speaking of hair, let’s face it, Ann Hathaway won for hers. That’s such a great cut. Come on, the movie blew. The version of Les Miserables with Uma and Liam Neeson is far, far better. Rent it and give Victor Hugo his due. I personally think his estate should sue for all that bad lip-syncing. I know they sang live, that’s just how bad I thought it was.

I’m happy to see that Ben Affleck has finally been forgiven by Hollywood for dating Jennifer Lopez. Argo really is a great film and should have swept the evening the same way Dances With Wolves did way back when.

I understand Steven Spielberg is in a coma this morning. So he wasn’t the big cheese this year. Grow up Steven. Ben deserved it and you know it, and how many have you won already?

And as far as the host went, Seth MacFarlane is no Bob Hope who would have been funnier exhumed and propped up on apple boxes.

In any event, I’m exhausted this morning but it was well worth seeing Abraham Lincoln win.

Was anyone really surprised besides Denzel?

Oh he’ll get over it.


About Susannah Bianchi

    I can’t generate any interest in award ceremonies. It seems to me that they merely confirm success, i.e. a restatement of the obvious. The same applies to Brits, Grammies, Emiies, BBCSPotY: all hype.
    “exhumed and propped up on apple boxes” made me smile though.


    • I totally get how you feel…it is so political. I was happy Daniel Day Lewis won. He was so amazing it was scary. The rest of it..eh. You might like Argo if you haven’t seen it. Very well done…compelling. And I do miss Bob Hope. Wish he’d make a comeback…if only.

    Haha, can’t wait to see Argo! And I agree about Les Mis, it wasn’t great but she did cut off her hair and starve herself and that generally gets people an oscar

    Bob Hope was so wonderful; miss his presence ~ he was a treat. Daniel Day-Lewis really was ‘Lincoln’…I’ve never seen anything but top notch from him. Wow! As for the leading ladies? I was pulling for Sally Field 1st choice and Helen Hunt 2nd.
    Boring award shows are plentiful…more fun watching the next day!

    Seth MacFarlane was the most obnoxious, sophomoric host they’ve ever had. Seriously what was up with the Booby Song? Who’s writing this show now, adolescent fan boys? I think Sally Field forgot she wasn’t still filming Lincoln. All she needed were the crinolines under that hoop skirt. The top part was lovely, but those tiers of ruffles were straight out of the Civil War. I quit paying attention when Laika House didn’t win for Best Animated Feature for “ParaNorman”.


    • Sorry about Laika. The only one I wanted to win was Dan, I’m such a Lincoln freak. My friend Hal and I had a volley of email over Oscar hosts. He was raving about Seth. I don’t know, call me square but I do prefer a Bob Hope type. I’ll take silly humor over slick any day.This is why I can recite Lucy episodes in my sleep. Yes, Sally is still in period and frankly, she was a whole lot better than Ms. Hathaway who is a whole lot cuter. That what it boils down to Dame, your ass and hair-cut…alas.


  5. Ann looked beautiful. Dan absolutely earned that Oscar and the rest was just awkward.
