Day 875

Is it just me or did everyone in the crowd at the Academy Awards look completely and utterly bored shitless? It's just got no pizzazz or sparkle anymore! I honestly don't know why I watched it. But I did.

Looks like I'm going to have to watch The Artist (just to see what all the fuss is about) and possibly Hugo as well.

My favourite speech of the night was by Christopher Plummer when he won Best Supporting Actor.  The speech was well thought out, funny and grateful.  The delivery was almost majestic.

My favourite award of the night went to Bret McKenzie, the New Zealander who won for best song - Man or Muppet.  The reason I loved this award is because I absolutely adore the song.  It's the type of song that gets stuck in your head and makes you giggle. A client of mine once referred to her building contractor as a muppet.  And it wasn't a term of endearment.  That cracked me up at the time and after hearing this song I realised it could well be the theme song for wallies and wankers everywhere.

Got a man in your life who needs to lift his game?  Ask him ... is he a man or a muppet ... or a muppet of a man.



  1. I missed the Oscars, but sounds like I didn't miss much at all! Except maybe the fashion that's what I'm most interested in anyways :)

  2. I didn't get to watch. I was in a uni lecture, probably looking completely and utterly bored shitless! ;-)

    I heard part of Christopher Plummer's speech in the car this morning. The way he talked about his wife made me cry. He sounded so sweet, and genuine.


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
