I'd like to thank the members of the Academy and the wonderful Hollywood fashionistas for putting the accent back on elegance and tradition, along with goodwill, unity, diversity and "going green". Yes! Thank you for rewarding talent rather than sex appeal, I kinda like that! Heck someone(I forget who) even took the time to thank The United States Marine Corps.......at the Oscars? WOOHOOO Imagine that!
I also think Ellen deserves a big round of applause for doing such a marvelous job. I honestly have never watched any of Ellen's stuff before. Heck I don't even own a TV set, but I'm definitely going to buy one just so I can watch Ellen from time to time. She is so FUNNY!
Speaking of elegance, however understated, even Jodie Foster and Diane Keaton managed to pull it off for a change. How amazing is that!
My personal Oscar highlights:
Beyonce Knowles (I just luvvved her pretty dresses, especially the red one)
Jennifer Hudson (never heard of her before)
The only things sort of out of place was Al Gore and Melissa Etheridge's wake up song that kinda didn't sound like music to my ears, and somehow she got an Oscar for it, but hey I kinda figure she got a lucky break there because she fit into the Oscar theme somehow, either with going green or with diversity. And how nice of her to thank her wife and her four children in front of a billion people audience.
Funny how everyone sees different things....
