Post Oscar Thoughts

I did not change enough of my picks is the obvious thing to start with.

I did not believe the Slumdog hype at first- then I saw the movie earlier today...yet, I still did not ride the wave that was the Millionaire. As someone who has been to Bombay (still Bombay to me and not Mumbai) and traveled through part of that wonderfully complex country I am very happy that the world gets to see first hand- even if only on screen what it is like there.

Best line of the night: Dōmo arigatō, Mr. Roboto
by Kunio Kato for his winning Animated Short Film: Le Maison en Petits Cubes.

Finally, we got to see Kate Winslet win an award. It's about time!

I liked the show tonight. Hugh Jackman was good though they should have used him a bit more.

The "In Memoriam" section was nice, but the camera was either too far away or it moved too much. Simplicity is always best.

Please bring back a mini screening/snippet of each picture nominated for Best Film. Its always nice to see more screen time for the big award.

That's it!
