Justin Timberlake Starts the Oscars Off with a Great Number & a Standing O! Mahershala Wins!

justin-timberlake-1Justin Timberlake starts off the Oscars just right with a rompin’, stompin’ raise-the-roof  with his own Oscar nominated song And it was great! From “Trolls.” He got a standing, dancing ovation! Great start! Then of course, Jimmy Kimmel  comes on and gets as he puts it, “Oh great, a sitting ovation”….

He then makes the audience give Meryl Streep a standing O.

And now, Best Supporting Actor! And here comes the lovely Alicia Vikander. She’s got a VERY deep tan.  Trying to look as un-Swedish as possible.

Mahershala Ali wins! I was wrong about Dev Patel…Another standing ovation…

A nice moving speech. His wife just had a baby and firstly he thanks his teachers, whom I know/knew the late Zelda Fischhandler and Ron Van Lieu from NYU Grad Acting. They were the first ones he thanked which was very classy of him. I saw him in many plays there and he was always as good as he was in mahershala-ali“Moonlight.” Lots of warmth in the room for “Moonlight” as Sasha Stone predicted at http://www.awardsdaily.com. And I didn’t…

His part in “Moonlight” was very small, but truly supporting. But he didn’t mention that he was a Muslim, which I wish he would’ve done.

 

 

 

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Owen Wilson is rising…

Every now and then I just HAVE to take a break and be away from El Interneto. But then of course, one HAS to return! So here I am, baaaack to blogging and what’s new? What’s  been happening? As far as I’m concerned the big news is STILL Woody Allen’s lovely-beyond-words “Midnight in Paris” has now gone wider(means into more theaters) than any of his films ever have and of course, it’s making more money than any other of his films ever has. And will make more. And more.

And Oscar listens to that Ka-Ching.

And everyone is rising with the movie. Owen Wilson was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and was as charming and personable and FUNNY as ever. He’s also in “Cars 2” and that was proabably mainly WHY he was on Jimmy K.

Jimmy says he only got “65% of the in-jokes” meaning the literary and film references. Oh well…

But Jimmy even mentioned the “O” word(not Oprah) to Owen…Hey, it looked like the beginning of a campaign to moi…Just saying.
