I love that despite no one in the world knowing the difference between sound editing and sound mixing, they still refuse to just make it one category...Then I guess the ceremony would run three minutes short of the designated 5 1/2 hour time slot.

Will Smith is likeable, but not 4 awards in a row likeable.

No-one knows the difference, and yet they award them to two separate films...

Maybe if Curious Case had won Adapted Screenplay I would agree.

Was that Cuba Gooding rant part of the show? I think I underestimated his acting abilities.

Cuba just needs a new agent, that's all. He's got the talent, but once he made Boat Trip it was all downhill.

Do you think they had Eddie Murphy present to Jerry Lewis specifically so they could use the line, "From one Nutty Professor to another"?

Okay, Zac...Just stand there and don't say anything. You got it?

Damn, I guess I misunderestimated the power of a movie that everyone genuinely likes.

I'll be really pissed if Wall-E wins this as a consolation, or to diversify.

Peter Gabriel isn't there but they got John Legend, I think, instead for Wall-E's song.

Wait, how are we supposed to know which song is the best if you just perform them all at once?

I mean it is a good creative time-saving technique.

Add one more to Slumdog's haul.

Yeah, that was John Legend. I would've preferred Peter, but I do like John Legend. He just didn't do the song justice.

I imagine Jai Ho won because of Gabriel's refusal to perform a butchered version of Down To Earth. Like with Russell Crowe's outbursts in 2002 that led Denzel Washington to win Best Actor, Gabriel's anger probably pissed off the old-line voters.

I must admit, Hugh Jackman is doing a pretty good job at this hosting thing. Rather then trying to be funny like all the comedians in the past, he is just up there doing his thing.
