Oscar Post

I've been slack and I wanted to do an Oscar post. So, here it is, with a few extras:

Pic: This ladies and gentlemen is the exquisite Marion Cotillard. My good friend Doyle has some great stuff about the Best/Worst dressed on Oscar night, but he got it all wrong on this one. No one will ever convince me that this dress, on her, is anything less than angelic. I want her so bad, oh baby, oh baby. And according to Yahoo, only 9% of players picked her to win. Even more points for me for having some serious foresight!

Article: This is Daniel Day-Lewis's back stage interview and includes such tasty gems as "none of your f--king business" and "I feel like a sandwich." Just totally classic stuff. "I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!" I love it! "I told you I was gonna eat you!" How do you turn those two lines into cinematic genius!? That script was something else...some kind of beast and that man is a pure effing genius.

WTF: Saturday Night Live owns the ultimate Oscar Parody. It is sooooooo funny!!! Scope it!

EXTRA SPECIAL POST! Acceptance speech from the Once kids. Oh so good...

Glen Hansard:
Thanks! This is amazing. What are we doing here? This is mad. We made this film two years ago. We shot on two Handycams. It took us three weeks to make. We made it for a hundred grand. We never thought we would come into a room like this and be in front of you people. It's been an amazing thing. Thanks for taking this film seriously, all of you. It means a lot to us. Thanks to the Academy, thanks to all the people who've helped us, they know who they are, we don't need to say them. This is amazing. Make art. Make art. Thanks.

Marketa Irglova:
Hi everyone. I just want to thank you so much. This is such a big deal, not only for us, but for all other independent musicians and artists that spend most of their time struggling, and this, the fact that we're standing here tonight, the fact that we're able to hold this, it's just to prove no matter how far out your dreams are, it's possible. And, you know, fair play to those who dare to dream and don't give up. And this song was written from a perspective of hope, and hope at the end of the day connects us all, no matter how different we are. And so thank you so much, who helped us along way. Thank you.
