JBelle Re: Oscars: She Loved It

I TIVO’d (the Academy Awards) as we were at the (Gonzaga-San Diego)game. It was a tad more thrilling than the broadcast. ;) Crash won; I figured it would. But I am going to hightail to the theatres to see Heath Ledger in BBM; had no idea he had acting chops of this sort. I was pretty impressed with him. His wife wore a beautiful dress, too. Reese (Witherspoon, shown in AP photo above as she wins Best Actress award) won! yay! (“I’m just tryin’ to matter.”) And I thought Stewart was wonderfully brilliant for the things you mentioned: he ripped on how serious Hollywood takes themselves, ripped on the endless clips,omG, the plethora of clips, and ripped on Jewish liberalism. And pulled it all off, nicely. I really enjoyed him. One of the high points of the evening was when the rappers beat Dolly Parton; they gave a high-energy performance of their theme from ‘Hustle and Flow’, um roughly, It’s not Easy Being a Pimp (I’m thinking of Kermit in It’s Not Easy Being Green); their name is 3 6 Mafia. ? yes? They set Hollywood back on its heels; and I laughed. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. The rappers are young, cute, happy and by God, these days, members of the Academy! upward and onward!
