Live Blogging the Oscars

Ok, not really. It's 10.13pm, CST. So far, I'm underwhelmed. I'm also confused by the "musical" numbers. Especially this one where Queen Latifah sings for the dead people. It's morbid, but the dead people montage is my favorite part of the show. It reminds me of high school graduation. Some people get respectable amounts of polite applause (Paul Newman), while others (Mort Dillman, craft services on the set of Bird on a Wire) get sporadic hand slapping sounds from seat fillers who have no idea who the poor schmuck was. I'm half surprised Jake Gyllenhaal didn't bust out an airhorn for Heath Ledger.

Check out the goods.

Also, is it just me, or do most presenters need to enroll at the Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Can't Read Good? Seriously.

I totally agree with you in all of it.
