a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Darlene Love belts out a spiritual when “20 Feet From Stardom” wins as expected Best Doc.
I saw it. I loved it. This is the first win tonight for the Weinstein Co. who usually dominate the Oscars. But not this year. I didn’t see Judi Dench. Is she there?

I guess she was giving it all up to Cate. Cate Blanchett, whose dress looked a little disappointing on my TV screen. It looked a little too much. Floor-length gown, but I’m sure it’ll look great in pictures.

Another boring montage…Or was that a commercial? There are a lot of commercials. As usual. Everything has been a little as usual.

Darlene Love’s vocal bust out was slightly off-key and shrill, but at least it was spontaneous…no musical accompanimnt.

Have to say that my fave Anne Hathaway looked great at the beginning giving Jared Leto his Oscar. She looked relaxed.

As expected Italy wins for “The Great Beauty”

Tyler Perry tripping over his pronunciation of the introduction to another triple-header, “Nebraska”, “Her” and “Gravity.”

Ellen comes out in a white man’s suit…Introducing Brad Pitt, For what? Oh! It’s U2 performing “Ordinary Love” from “Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom”, which I saw and liked. Idris Elba and Noemie Harris should both have been nominated. Harvey Weinstein,what were you doing with this one?

I don’t remember this song from the movie. Must’ve played over the end titles…. Karen O earlier singing “The Moon Song” from was as forgettable as it was in “Her.” This is better than all the songs in “Spiderman”. It gets a standing ovation! First surprise of this unsurprising night! At last!
