So, the Oscars, you guys. For all the Academy’s attempts to make this a real edge-of-your-seat party, it was mostly predictable, plenty boring, and enough with the Slumdog Millionaire already. The only real upset of the night, of course, was the Sean Penn win for Best Actor, and that was just sad. Any other upset would have been way cooler than that upset, but Rourke wuz robbed. Also, what was up with those sound editing awards? Slumdog You’vegottobekiddingmenaire.
Anyway, we’ve put together a few of our “favorite” moments (don’t take that word too seriously, plz), including Will Smith’s Reddit moment, Ben Stiller’s
Christian Bale Joaquin Phoenix parody, and check out our new photo gallery function! We make love to your eyes now. (What? Gross. Sorry. But also check out our new photo gallery function.)
And then let’s be done with this silliness and go back to the important work of cataloging the world’s finest trampoline accidents, because at least they still have some integrity. (They=trampolines?)
Most Adorable Speech: Winners apologizing for their bad English was taken to a new level when Kunio Kato thanked Mr. Roboto:
Nobody will get it in a year, but the funniest part of the night: Ben Stiller as Joaquin Phoenix:
Will Smith flubbed a line and then said “Boom goes the dynamite”! Perfect. I think this internet thing is really going to take off.
Judd Apatow’s “short film” for the Oscars. Because “lazy rehash of well-tread territory” didn’t sound as good. Does anyone even care about this thing anymore? Show some respect!
And the Moon Man for “Best Kiss” goes to…(also, seriously, Academy Awards? Forgetting Sarah Marshall doesn’t need to be in the program anywhere).
The end. Goodbye to all this.
