The wrap up and my concluding notes.
Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington are presenting something or other. Why isn't Kerry Washington a bigger star? I need to know this right now. How impossibly pretty is she? Looks great in white. Oh no wait. how bizarre. that was from last year's show. I have no memory.
I love David Strathairn. Such a fine actor. I fear he may be snubbed on Tuesday.
And another possible snubbee on Tuesday Amy Adams. So happy for her about this awards season. Junebug is now out on DVD so y'all really owe it to yourself to rent it. I gave it a mixed positive review originally but the movie has improved in memory --always a great sign. Rent it.
S Epatha wins again for Lackawanna Blues. I miss having HBO. Thanks her divorce lawyer. Too too funny. The actors in the room ate that up.
Paul Newman wins for Empire Falls. So the Globes have been very predictive of tonights winners (Giamatti being the exception).
Jake and Heath together. YAY. but what is with this intro? I saw Heath on Jay Leno and he was also very twitchy and uncomfortable. Heath's hair is also sitting rather uncomfortably on his head.
BEST ACTRESS. Go Reese! "Ohmygod, y'all!" A little girl from Tennessee. Much improved on her Golden Globe speech. Good job. Next stop: OSCAR!
Oh why you gotta follow Reese with Hilary? Why you gotta stop my buzz short. oh cuz it's BEST ACTOR. Phillip Seymour Hoffman wins. So locked up for Oscar. sigh my poor Heath. So deserving but PSH is a steamroller. Oscar just can't resist the biopic performances. But anyway good speech from PSH.
They're showing a commercial for Firewall. Remember when Harrison Ford was a great movie star? What is going on there?
Even Morgan Freeman is wearing purple. Now, I love purple. My favorite color. But this is out of control. The Boyfriend has demanded a ban of purple at the Oscars. Freeman is announcing Best Ensemble. The winner is Crash. blah.
So Brokeback got shut out of the SAGs. That's too bad.
overall meaning of tonights awards?
REESE & PHILLIP just won their Oscars.
BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN will still win the Oscar --although several journalists will try to convince you it won't.
CRASH will probably win best screenplay
CLOONEY vs. GIAMATTI for supp. actor. (Giamatti has the edge unless they don't want George to go home empty handed)
WEISZ vs. WILLIAMS for supp. actress
