Pretty good show tonight. Gaga was amazing as were Legend and Common. Didn't think Doogie was as funny as in the past but he was ok.

really, I was surprised Birdman won all it did and didn't get Keaton the nod. Big Hero 6 was my favorite movie of the year and the short Feast - the short that ran with it, were both great.

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

The best part about the Oscars being so bloated and overlong is that I can watch the entire WWE PPV and still see every single important award.

Pissed at Keaton not winning, a little shock Birdman won. I guess its one of those its about the industry so it should win awards. This thing was a drag to get through. JK Simmons winning was nice to see. Arquette got the female fanbase up with her speech.

Now reviewing Better Call Saul and a ton of superhero TV shows.

I'm just confused that the Academy loved Birdman, but somehow Keaton didn't get swept up in the wave. Whatever, it would've been nice to see Linklater or Boyhood get one of the Picture/Director/Screenplay trifecta but Birdman is an excellent film.

Also, in a nod to the board's wrestling roots, the Rock and Zoe Saldana stole the show by looking stylish as hell. My Oscar party unanimously declared them the presenters of the night.

"They showed Kazarian talking on his cell phone. Tenay said that was a sign of disrespect. West suggested that perhaps Kazarian was phoning in the moves to someone who is going to help him prepare to face one of these wrestlers. That's one of the worst guesses in history for why someone is on the phone."

I thought the show was terrible. (I'm not talking winners and losers--I haven't seen most of the films. I'm talking as a show.) The music was the highlight--the Sound Of Music tribute was very good, and the song nominees mostly worked well. But the opening was so-so and after that Harris was pretty bad. The whole "Octavia Spencer has to keep an eye on my predictions" thing dragged on and on, and the payoff was far from worth it. Even the In Memoriam was dull--no clips, just still images. (At least they didn't keep cutting away to a singer, but we still got the song after.)

At least they had Shirley MacLaine and Julie Andrews to honor a little bit of film history.

I don't know when I allowed Huffington Post to email me things they thought were important, but I definitely did not need to see every single result sent to my inbox as Breaking News.

I'm annoyed enough to remove myself from their mailing lists, and let me tell you, that takes something. I'm quite lazy about this normally.

This is about the fourth time Billy's done something like this. I mean, I like the guy, but I wish he could learn to separate "wild rumor" from "highly credible rumor that has a ghost of a chance of being true": http://www.
