Really, the only highlights of this so far have been

1) The Steve Martin/Tina Fey bit.
2) The guy with the WORST OVERBITE IN THE WORLD

In Bruges forgot Oscar Rule #1: release the movie at the end of the year, else the idiots voting will likely forget it. They also forgot Rules 2,3,4 - no holocaust, no gay theme, no musical....

It didn't stand a chance!

Still pissed it got beat on screenplay!

Agreed. Queen Latifah was fine, but the presentation was terrible.

And why no love for Don LaFontaine?

Conversely, the director of The Beach won an Oscar. Oh boy.

And I'll just get this started.

Now, if that guy was in Slumdog Millionaire, maybe the praise would justified.

I think there's a slim chance that Winslet and Streep split the vote, allowing Melissa Leo to win.

However, I'm confident Winslet will win.

The fact that it got nominated was good enough for me, not to mention it's Golden Globes win.

They play this like a film festival on steroids. Maybe not too smart.
