I watched all of the Oscars last night. Well, I missed the first five minutes, as I had been attempting to get my digital TV to work for the past half hour, but it was refusing to pick up any signal at all. So finally I admitted defeat. "I won't be able to watch the Oscars at all
!" I moaned (and I was far more upset about this than I was about possibly not getting into that fiction class, which I think reflects amazingly on me). But then I remembered that I'm awesome and always obtain whatever I go for. So I immediately found an illegal UK stream online and watched that cheerfully for the entire broadcast. Sorry, Academy, but this is the 21st century, and you've got to be ready: Give me a stream on your site, and I'll watch that, 'kay? (Amusingly, I was linked to that streaming site from the Academy's forums.)
So anyway, everyone seemed really gracious at the Oscars this year, and I thought the speeches were actually pretty good for what they usually are. I nearly cried at some of them, seriously. And I was satisfied with everyone who won. Hugh Jackman was also a lot better than I thought he'd be-- Smart move going for performing instead of a comedy routine. (But was I the only one who felt that every time he said something like, "The musical is back!" that he was trying to stab us for getting rid of Viva Laughlin
?) Of course, my favorite parts of the show were whenever they showed Dev Patel, who always looked so happy
, oh my gosh.
Okay, now I'm going to devote the rest of this entry to Gundam 00
, so...yeah. ( Spoilers for 2.20 )
Geez, and after writing that
essay, I have to go write that Ethics one.
