Who watched the Oscars?

Monday, February 26th, 2007

Actually, I admit, I’m writing this at 7est on Sunday so they haven’t actually been on yet. But I’m about to head out the door in a few minutes to go to an Oscar party, so I’m posting now (rather than later tonight even though the post won’t show up until the Morning).

Anyway, I’ve probably seen a grand total of 5 movies in the theater this year and let me tell you, none of them were awards worthy.

So, I will be picking winners on something other than how good the movie was. Maybe how crazy the people are dressed. Maybe something else altogether.

I made my famous mint brownies for the party but I forgot to take them out of the oven. I don’t think they’re burned, and they probably taste fine, but they’re not attractive. And while they sounded great in the grocery store, I don’t know if “Lil Smokies” are really sophisticated Oscar party food.

But hopefully it’ll be fun anyway. Did you watch? How’d your favorites do?

Update Monday morning: Yeah, so I lost our Oscar poll big time with a total of 4 correct guesses (and yes, they were guesses). I totally would have kicked ass had underdogs swept the awards, though.

And I thought Ellen was hilarious. They were insanely long, but I liked it more than I have in years past. The crazy dancers that “acted out” the movies were really cool. Though the highlight of the night may have been the Will Ferrell/Jack Black musical number!

But my questions remain…how did your favorites do? What’d you think of the show?
