Once's original song win got a standing ovation in my living room. It almost got one at the ceremony, too --- how did this movie not get nominated for best picture, again?



How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person Im portraying. Youre confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard, and I said You are aware that I am not really a wizard? and Peter Jackson said I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show. So I said Okay and then I said to myself Mmm.. How do I do that? And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

b/c it was an extended music video?

haha I kid Once.



I was a There Will Be Blood guy myself. Shame about E-Page, but I was kind of glad Cate Blanchett's high quality SNL skit impression of Bob Dylan was not awarded.

It's a shame Javier Bardem's role in No Country for Old Men was technically only a supporting one because that was probably the best character I saw and I think many would agree that he carried the movie. That scene with him and the old general store/gas station owner with the coin flip (the one they showed at the Oscars) was easily my favorite scene of the year.

I felt the same way about her Kate Hepburn impression in The Aviator, and she actually won! I guess you could argue Jaime Fox did the same thing in Ray.

The thing is, if she's just doing an impression then it's fair enough. If she's mimmicking Bob Dylan without emoting or investing some feeling in the thing, then she didn't deserve to win. I can't comment as I haven't seen I'M NOT THERE yet, but in THE AVIATOR she wasn't just imitating Hepburn. At first it was grating because that's all it felt like, but once she became involved with Hughes and the character's emotional life came into play she was on fire.

Best results in years, too. Unlike Justin, I'm a NO COUNTRY guy - I wouldn#t have been upset had TWBB won, because it's one of the best films of the decade, but NO COUNTRY goes juuust that step further. Plus, PTA will be back at the Oscars. This is probably the Coens' best shot at getting the award, and they deserved it.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova were the best part of this show. The reaction of the crowd when Stewart brought her out to finish her speech was wonderful. It felt like such a wonderfully human moment and was touching, at least at SPF Manor.

I eagerly await Palin's response* to this, and then John Stewart's response to her response.
