For those who couldn't stomach even attempting to watch the Oscars (yes, that means you, Power Line guys and Anal Philosopher!) - you did not miss much. For the most part, the show - sadly -was a real bow-wow.
This USA Today article encapsulates the evening quite well.
Hilary Swank gave a touching, graceful acceptance speech, thanking her husband and scaring off the orchestra. Jamie Foxx's win gave the show a long-awaited emotional boost. And Clint Eastwood added old-school, masculine class.
Clearly, the Oscars rock. What a shame the show didn't.
The Oscars should be an evening which frames our top performers and art which moves us. Too bad that the Oscars are now morphing into the Oscar weiners....
