Oscariffic

Yes, I love Cate. I can't help falling in love with Cate. She is the only living actress worthy of portraying a goddess like Katharine Hepburn and she's been suitably rewarded.

This year I didn't watch the ceremony as scrupulously as I have in previous - after all, it didn't have Desperate Housewives to contend with until now - but there were a few memorable moments worth noting. Lifetime achievement award winner Sidney Lumet thanking "the movies" in his speech might sound cornball but but was actually simple and inspiring; Jamie Foxx's heart-felt thanks to his dead grandmother was touching instead of scary like past Oscar winners' (Gwyneth Paltrow) thanking of dead people; and Morgan Freeman oozed his usual class giving what might possibly have been the shortest acceptance speech I've ever seen an actor deliver at the Oscars.

Cate of course looked stunning, as did Halle Berry, Kate Winslet and Catalina Sandino Moreno. Less stunning and more scary were Gwyneth and Renee Zellwegger. Johnny Depp looked a little too much like Willy Wonka for my liking. And Sean Penn is cool, but Christ, get over it Miss Serious Sally!

Sounds like the awards being given in the audience and nominees on stage thing won't be happening again. Shame, I quite liked the interactive theme. Perhaps presenters could present awards while trapeezing?

Finally, Hilary Swank's life is great. From trailer trash, to Valley Girl in Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie and 90210, to double Oscar winner. She really out-did Charlize Theron (whose mum murdered her dad in self-defence) for an inspiring back story! Truly, the stuff of a Hallmark telemovie of the week, perhaps starring Tori Spelling. Or Justine Bateman.

Oh, this is my new favorite post-Oscars post. Mostly because I agree with pretty much everything you said. Especially the stuff about Cate. And Gwyneth. And Morgan. And - yeah, I agree with it all. So *clears throat* how do you feel about Nikki Webster?
