Rachel's Blog: 2006 Oscars Observations Part Seven

Mon, 06 Mar 2006

Part Seven already? And there's still two hours to go. This is becoming very self indulgent. Don't worry, I don't really expect to go the whole distance.

Sandra and Keanu "we are not on a date". (But they were arm in arm! It's a sign! Woman's Day is going to be all over this.)

Art Direction, pretty, pretty, pretty. They should make some films that are just all gorgeous sets and costumes. Story, writing, music and acting be damned!

This is Scary L. jackson. you can just see him thinking, "Don't you dare disagree with me!"
Can someone please make a list of all the films these clips are taken from. There are some I need to see.

I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

(Did it work? No. Here are the singing animals again.)

Syd Dennis, Prez of the Academy: State of the Heart? Someone was awake all night thinking up that one. Yeeesh.
Oh, now he's pleading. This is sad. "Come to the cinema. It's great! Please! No, DVDs suck. Watch films with strangers. It's wacky fun!"

*tinkly music with violin*

Actually I'm glad I don't have any alcohol, this could have been a lot worse. But I might have given up already, so...

I am now staring glass-eyed at the screen. Is there a term for slurring while typing?

Oh God! Another "watch films in theatres" speech. This people have a) no clue, b) no shame. But deos this mean we can expect another big screen release of these "epics"? I'd love to see West Side Story or Ben Hur in a cinema, but it ain't gonna happen for most of us.

E.T. with walkie talkies. Sheesh.

Jon Stewart is funny. Except when he suggests Jessica Alba and Eric Bana as candidates to repopulate the earth!?!?

Cool, Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin should be in a film together. They are both great. (I am being simultaneously nice and sincere. Unusual for me, I know) Check it out, someone already had my good idea.

Hey, we should see this one. Do they do The Young Lutherans' Guide to the Orchestra?
