Oscar Winners

Best dressed, full show commentary, etc coming tomorrow.

I gotta say though, this is by far one of the best dressed Oscars in memory. I thought no one looked genuinely bad and even the stuff that was not the best was at least a risk and interesting. Ellen did good. They didn't use her enough, though.

One of the best lines: "Without the blacks, the jews and the gays there wouldn't even be an Oscars. Or anyone named Oscar." That and the "Goodfellas meets Big Momma's House."

And regarding the show, people will always bitch: too long, boring, no good winners, but whatever. I thought this was one of the smoothest Oscars in a long time. I wasn't bored, some stuff could have been trimmed, there weren't any really great speeches, and the human shadow puppets could have been saved for one big montage instead of several ones. But whatever. It was fine.

The Winners:
