- Remember my comment about not having seen this year’s Oscar films? Well, animation is the big exception. Not only had I seen all three of the nominees (Bolt, Kung-Fu Panda, Wall-E), but I saw all of the movies they ran during the montage (those three, Tales of Despereaux, Horton Hears a Who, Space Chimps, Madagascar 2 and even Star Wars Clone Wars, the one for which I didn’t have the excuse of going with wee Allison.)
- The choice of Tina Fey and Steve Martin to give the writing awards makes me happy, not just because they’re two people I like who work well together, but because they are both quite respectable writers.
- There was some talk about them building a storyline into the show to keep people interested. I don’t know what they consider to be a storyline; it overall seems like a basic, kinda bland Oscars.
