    That's really hard to do since they started enforcing that 30 second rule.

I liked the South African guy (can't remember what award), who kept reading how much time he had left off the teleprompter. His speech was pretty good.

When there was not a clear cut favorite, I like that they spread the love around. Two years from now, nobody will remember any of the winners, though.

Two years, two weeks, something like that. I still have not met anyone personally who saw any of the best picture nominees. I walked out on Crash (after about the 500th F word) and saw Capote. As far as I know, none of them except Brokeback played on my side of the river from Louisville. My friend at Great Escape 16 said they had 82 patrons all week for Brokeback there.




We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Oscar Ratings Drop 8 Percent From 2005
By LYNN ELBER, AP Entertainment WriterMon Mar 6, 6:27 PM ET

ABC is in for a "Crash" landing in the Oscar ratings.

An estimated 38.8 million people watched the Academy Awards Sunday, down 8 percent from last year and the worst since 2003, according to Nielsen Media Research. Except for the 2003 count of 33 million viewers when "Chicago" took the best-picture award the Oscars hadn't dipped below 40 million viewers since 1987, Nielsen said.

The ceremony, where "Crash" won a surprise best picture trophy, drew a 27.1 rating and a 40 share. Each rating point is equivalent to 1.1 million homes, while the share indicates that 40 percent of the TVs in use last night were tuned to the awards.

Last year's metered markets had a 30.1 rating and 43 share, Nielsen said.

I saw all of the Best Picture nominees except Munich. I like Crash, but it was nothing special. Capote was OK, but his performance seemed too much like a gay combo of The Godfather and Bobby Hill. Brokeback was nowhere near as good as it was made out to be. It was more of a message movie.

The reason I think a movie has to be made is not just because of how good it could be but because they owe us one to pay off the last line of the series as the ultimate call-forward instead of just a sad idle tease.
