It's all politics, but I love it anyway

What's Lovely for March 7, 2010: Geeking out over the Oscars, because I'm lame like that.

The Oscars were tonight, and it's that time of year when I officially geek out. Not that I don't already geek out all year 'round... But this is that special time of year when I can't help myself but get swept up into the bright lights and glitz and glam that are... the Academy Awards. Where the famous of Hollywood stroke their own egos in the best way possible, hallelujah.

Convenient placement of clever Youtube clip pertaining to particular blog post, attempt at witty comment, laugh laugh laugh.

So... post-Oscar babble: I think Carey Mulligan looked stunning, Penelope Cruz is always gorgeous, Neil Patrick Harris is Hollywood's unofficial dinner singer, Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan are the cutest couple ever, Ben Stiller is some sort of crazy genius... but that's just me rambling when you can get that from every news source tomorrow (how was that run-on sentence for ya?? I think I broke a world record). It's because of times like this that I have to admit (as sent in a text to my friend Lizzie): "It's rare times like this that I wish I had a twitter." My mind just explodes full of pop culture, it's insane.

And now thanks to the Oscars, I have the winning Up theme song stuck in my head. It really did deserve to win, it's a song that can make you smile and break your heart at the same time. But I personally really love the soundtrack to Sherlock Holmes-- discordantly dramatic and wildly exhilarating.

And thus ends my sleep-deprived, haphazard Oscar commentary; I'm like Joan Rivers with a few drinks in her. Or maybe not enough drinks, who knows. What about your two cents, were any of you excited about the Oscars like I was? Or should I go sit in a corner for awhile?

Coming up next: Blog award time! :)

aw I didn't manage to catch the show cause I don't have a TV here but I'm so happy for The Hurt Locker, Mo'Nique and Christoph Waltz. Brilliant performances and The Hurt Locker was amazing

oh ya, sherlock holmes is great movie..

I was really happy The Hurt Locker won, it was really great. Of course, Avatar won best special effects (no brainer) and even Precious won an award.

So all's well that ends well.

Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin were so funny together! I was clutching my sides the whole time.

My god. You think Robert Downey Jr. could've had a shave and put on a proper pair of shoes. Sometimes I can be right old fashioned and just think that if you're gonna dress up, do it properly, man!
LOVED the music for Up. It was a beautiful film and I'm really glad the music won.

I'm a huge film geek so I'm always excited to see the Oscars. I was pleased with the winners this year. My only disappointment was that Quentin Tarantino didn't win for Best Original Screenplay. I thought that screenplay was brilliant.
