Yet another boring Oscar party

Again if it wasn’t for Twitter and the fact that I had money riding on it, the Oscars could’ve easily been missed in my books.

Of the ten films nominated for Best Picture, I saw four of them (UP, Up in the Air, Inglourious Basterds and The Hurt Locker). While in a perfect world UP should’ve probably won, but I knew that wasn’t going to happen. The other three were good movies, but nothing spectacular so I wasn’t rooting for any one in particular (just as long as Pocha- er, Dances wi- um, Fern Gu- ee, ah yes, Avatar didn’t win).

The biggest part of the Oscars, and really all award shows, is the length. I think it all started around 7pm and didn’t finish til after midnight. That’s just insane. No wonder less and less people are watching it each year; it’s not that they don’t want to know who wins, it’s just one long, boring self-pat on the back. This is just one more reason why Twitter is great I guess, because it made it all bearable with the hilarious commentary.

Here’s a complete list of the winners from last night.

What did you think of the whole thing?
