2008: Post-Oscars “Quickie” Report

Watched Oscars, had popcorn.

Self is soooo glad that Tilda Swinton won an Oscar. And that the song from “Once” did, too. And that Jon Stewart brought back the female half of the “Once” duo because she didn’t get to give her thank-you speech (orchestra started up just as she was bending down to the mike).

And self thinks Helen Mirren looked just wonderful! Self almost didn’t recognize Jennifer Garner, thinking for a minute she looked like an older Ellen Page. Hilary Swank looked thin. Cameron Diaz was adorable. Katherine Heigl said she was nervous, self had no idea why: in her red dress (Red seemed to be color of the evening) she looked like a modern-day reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. Renee Zellwegger was tight-lipped and simpering.

And “Ratatouille” won! Hoo-ray for Mayor of San Carlos!
