Default Academy Awards...

...seriously, no Oscar thread?

- well, normally we here tend to see that show as some kind of crude Hollywood self-adulation we only watch in secret; but this year those ignorants nominated an Austrian film for 5 different categories, so we of course modify our views and would now see an actual win as the highest honour imaginable... Oscars! Yeah! So exciting!

Anyone watching?

No. Those of us in the States don't bother because we know it is produced to entertain a bunch of ignorant Europeans. Kind of like David Hasselhoff.

(David Hasselhoff... that guy really still believes his singing "Looking for freedom" at the Berlin Wall helped ending the cold war... - thank you for him, then.)

Well given the silence here at the moment, perhaps I was wrong about Americans not watching. Either way I hope your team wins. Let me know as I am too busy watching Saved By the Bell on DVD, a masterpiece of television production.

Allright... I will shout "WE ARE OSCAR!" for you every time one of my country fellowmen is endowed with an award.

- Oh my god, a "We saw your boobs" song. That's just as hilarious as sand. - And from where did they beam the undead to the show?

I think he found a good balance of being edgy, as most of his work is, but also provided a timeless element to his opening. And lets not act surprised he got Shatner involved. Awesome.

I'm not easily offended, but MacFarlane isn't my bag. It's not that racism, sexism, homophobia, and making light of domestic violence is offensive to me, I just don't find it funny.

That's just me, though.

Usually I can't stand the Academy Awards but when I heard Shirley Bassey would be singing Goldfinger and Adele would be singing Skyfall, I actually decided to watch. I can safely say that Shirley and Adele saved the Oscars!

Adele is a terrific singer and I admire her because she sounds just as good live as she does when recorded which is my measure of true talent.

But Shirley Bassey -- Oh my: She was just freakin' sick. Even at age 76 and long retired from active singing, Shirley just came out and destroyed Goldfinger. She crushed that song. She retired it! The orchestra was on fire for her and, as a trumpet player, let me tell you what: The brass parts in Goldfinger take more air and control than anything else I ever played. Shirley Bassey is a classic singer and when she was on stage I was bawling like a teenage girl at a Jonas Brothers concert. Her voice is so, so, so, um, I can't find the words.

Barbra Streisand showed up too. Meh.

Not everyone has the same sense of humor.
