This was a terrible night for Billy Crystal. He just didn't have it this year the way he did in the past. Chris Rock in a two minute bit was funnier than Crystal was all night.

Holy cow, I was excited enough to see Dean Pelton win, but I didn't realize the other Descendants co-writer (besides Payne) was a guy who has dozens of small, funny roles in loads of commercials, movies and TV shows.

Best Documentary Short: Saving Face

I just watched this a few days ago. It was very good if a bit sad. It's about women who are the victims of acid attacks by their husbands and the Pakistani court system.

Kudos to Jim Rash for the Oscar and for mocking Angelina Jolie's right leg. (insidemovies.ew.com)

A dead, bland evening smothered in weak comedy (even from the Christopher Guest gang) and an inexcusably bad sound system. Pretty lackluster winners too. A very weak year.

The Academy just doesn't seem to like Clooney and Pitt. Meryl Streep, again in what is considered a weak film? A french guy who can't say three words of English, at least the Best Actor crazy Italian guy who walked on seats knew some English. If anything the Muppets were avenged for Rainbow Connection losing back in the day. I have been shouting for Super 8 for best picture at least a nod for that tenth spot due to my nostalgia for those type of films when I was a kid. I guess the Academy voters felt the same way about The Artist when they were kids. Again Walkind Dead > Oscars.

So if they're gonna nominate Meryl Streep for Best Actress, why even bother nominating anybody else? You just know they're gonna hand the Oscar to her no matter what.

Uh, she's won 3 times in 17 nominations. It would seem her being nominated hardly equates to a win. I believe last night was her first win in 30 years.

Huh. I did not know that. Blame me never paying any real attention to the Oscars, because for some reason it felt like she wins all the time. My mistake.

And weird to see Serenty Johnson from "Halfway Home" win one.

The list of people to win 3 or more Academy Awards in acting categories is Jack Nicholson (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Terms of Endearment, As Good As It Gets), Meryl Streep (Kramer Vs. Kramer, Sophie's Choice, The Iron Lady), Katharine Hepburn (Morning Glory, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, The Lion In Winter [shared with Barbara Streisand], On Golden Pond), and Walter Brennan (Best Supporting Actor 1936, 1938, and 1940). Getting even 3 Academy Awards is a big deal.

Just curious how many of the films you've referred to here you have actually seen. Dujardin's basic English has nothing to do with his win. You'd understand that if you had seen the film.

I call BS on Streep winning. Same reason Fox winning for Ray was crap. They are doing impressions. If that is what it takes to win Best Actress, Tina Fey should have one for doing Palin.

The dame from The Artist should have won. She was a huge part of that movie and was as engaging as Dujardin IMO.

I still think Viola Davis got robbed. I also was kind of hoping Bridesmaids would have gotten original screenplay because good comedies never seem to get there due from the academy. Finally, I wish Transformers would have won one of the technical awards just so I could say Academy award winning Transformers: Dark of the moon everytime I referenced the movie.

Ebert was tweeting links about her Sunday/Monday with weird angles:

1) There was an online effort to convince her to wear her natural hair to the Oscars to inspire the young black girls watching to be proud of their hair.

2) There was relief expressed that she lost because some didn't want her to win for playing a maid.

Neither of these have anything to do with her earning an Academy Award, which I think she did for Doubt. She had such a small role there, and she stole that film from Streep AND Hoffman.

Not sure why you quoted me here, but I agree. Three wins IS a big deal. Part of me thinks the Academy enjoys giving Oscars to actors that come out of nowhere (like Dujardin), partly to snub those actors that get nominated a bunch and partly hoping that the winner is a flash in the pan so they can boast the rarity of multiple time winners.

Poor Ashly. She had a great run with Joey McIntyre in the first season, then got saddled with terrible partners in Master P and Harry Hamlin. She takes 6 seasons off and comes back, only to get Buzz Aldrin. She's like the Meg Griffin of this show.
