Oh, Bill Murray was totally robbed that year. Although I was confused by the classification of LiT as a "comedy"; yeah, it was funny at times, but a "comedy" it wasn't, except I guess in the technical sense, since he didn't die at the end. But comedies and scifi/fantasy definitely have to work twice as hard to get any respect, which sucks for sure.

I didn't see Bridesmaids yet, but I have residual love for Melissa McCarthy from Gilmore Girls, so I'd love to see her win. Comedies really only get acknowledged in the supporting and screenplay categories.

I don't know how I feel about the Oscars anymore. The telecast can be boring (especially the two hour stretch in the middle--all the awards we care about are either at the beginning or the end), but for some reason, even if I haven't seen most of the films, I like to see who wins. And yes, the clothes!

Billy Crystal is always good (I love the medleys), but a few years ago when they were looking for a new "hipper" host, I suggested (to D, anyway) Greg Kinnear, and he agreed. I don't know why they don't go with him. I've loved him since the Talk Soup days.

Yeah, I don't get that either. LiT really isn't a comedy. It has comedic elements but it's still a drama.

Comedies soooo get screwed at the Oscars. It's true. And the sad thing is I think it's probably 10 times harder to make someone laugh than it is to act in a drama. People should get recognized by the Academy for that more, it's not an easy thing to do by any means. I think sometimes the Academy forgets that movies are all about entertainment and that comedy is a large part of that. Peh. '

I don't know why I get so worked up about it. Acting is an overrated job anyway.

Anywho. Yes, the dresses! I'm all about the dresses! :)

Greg Kinnear....I could see that. It would be interesting.

Oh, PS: I predict probably The Artist will win Best Picture. I see The Help sweeping the acting categories, especially in Best Supporting Actress. I didn't see either movie, but I have a feeling.... And I think they'll probably throw HP:DH2 a bone with one of the lesser categories...effects maybe. :)
