Oscar Commentary a la Twitter

  • Why is Miley Cyrus AT the Oscars? Just because she CAN?
  • Anne Hathaway is very classy.
  • Meryl Streep's daughter is pretty. I like her brown dress. It's brown.
  • Cocktails with Jack Black. Except they aren't drinking anything.
  • Seth Rogen looks slimmer.
  • The set up for the music looks awesome. I'm loving the nightclub atmosphere
  • I'm really excited to hear the new arrangements of classic movie themes
  • I love Hugh Jackman. He's very pretty. And Handsome.
  • Now I see why Hugh Jackman is on Broadway. and boy would I love to see him in a show!
  • Anne Hathaway is such a cutie.
  • And she can sing!
  • "I'm Wolveriiiiiiiiiiiine!"
  • It certainly is a more intimate atmosphere.
  • This set up is very cool. Kind of like a Tonight Show stage. In a good way, of course.
  • Interesting... having former winners announce the nominees together. I like it.
  • Marisa Tomei is beautiful. I just wish she would pronounce her own name correctly.
  • Penelope Cruz is so cute! I never liked her before tonight.
  • You can't NOT love Steve Martin and Tina Fey. And Steve Martin.

  • How can you not fall in love with him?
  • I may just have to see this Slumdog Millionaire show. It looks pretty fantastic.
  • It's so good to Jen Aniston looking FABULOUS.
  • Animation 2008. I still need to see Wall-E, Star Wars Clone Wars, Horton Hears a Who, Despereaux, Space Chimps, and Bolt.
  • Especially since Wall-E won. I do so love kid movies.
  • This Way Up looks QUITE entertaining.
  • I think this guy just thanked his pencil.

  • These sets are just awesome!
  • Its pretty cool to see an action/comic film be nominated for an oscar, even if just for Art Direction.
  • I can haz chandeleer in box?
  • Even if Keira Knightly ends up being pigeonholed for period pieces, she still looks GREAT in the duds.
  • Oh how I love DVR. Fastforwarding commercials and boring speeches.
  • Ben Stiller mocking Joaquin Phoenix. PRICELESS. Natalie is pretty talented at keeping a straight face.
  • Don't like Jessica Biel's outfit. Her Giant Bow is trying to eat the rest of her dress.
  • Almost fastforwarded through the Seth Rogen Comedy clip.
  • I love Seth Rogen. Love Love Love.
  • James Franco definitely does not speak German.

  • What the heck in on Phillip Seymour Hoffman's head?
  • Hugh Jackman is so multi-talented. I love musicals and I love montages about musicals! Beyonce should be on Brodway, too.
  • Those High School Musical kids better know how lucky they are to be performing at the flipping oscars!
  • Apparently PHS didn't have time to shave or do his hair.
  • Cuba Gooding Jr. could have been a stand-up comic.
  • I have no words for Heath Ledger's win other than that it is timely and deserved.
  • Bill Maher is a bit snarky. And not necessarily in a good way.


  • Will Smith rocks.
  • Finally the Dark Knight won something! (Aside from the Heath Ledger win, of course)
At this point in the evening, Stinkerbell woke up and wanted to snuggle on my lap, so thus endeth the commentary.

Wish I could've watched the show while you were commentating. Seems like a very successful event this year.

I'm with you 100% on the Tina Fey and Steve Martin coupling; their episode of 30 Rock was one of the very best.

I watched probably ten minutes of the pre-show and got bored, and then realized I hadn't seen any of the movies yet anyway so it probablby dodn't make sense for me to watch anyway. But in that 10 minutes, I had the same quesiton about Miley Cyrus.

I love your commentary! I especially love because I didn't watch the Oscars and now I feel as if I have.
