I figured I'd better give you my take on the Oscars while it's still fresh in my mind. I thought Ellen did a fine job and laughed when she gave a screenplay to Scorsese. The tumblers behind the lighted screen were neat. The funniest to me was the Meryl Streep bit with the 2 girls forgetting her cappucino.....that look on Meryl's face was priceless. Tom Cruise looked good....of course Katie was probably locked up in a closet at home. George Clooney is still one sexy guy. Nicholson shaved his head! But he's still sexy....I guess it's that smile. Beyonce and the other "dream girl" were much stronger singers than Celine. I was not happy to see Forest Whittaker win....he hasn't paid income taxes since the year 2002 !!! He should be in jail & not receiving awards. I was glad that Scorsese won......he was certainly thrilled. And his movie won too. A double win for him. The rest of the show was too much foreign crap!!!
