Oscar Follow-Up

Katherine Heigl personified "Glamor" last night. It was a return to a Hollywood that may only exist in imagination.

John Stewart's joke that, "This is a town that needs a hug," rang true. When La Vie en Rose qualifies as a feel-good movie then Hollywood is embracing the dark side.

Daniel Day Lewis, born in London

Tilda Swinton, London

Marion Cotilliard, Paris

Javier Bardem, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain

What a great winners' list. What a bad night to be a xenophobe.

The Golden Compass managed to attract two nominations and one Oscar. Some people will wish it was a less beautiful movie. I think the script did more to sabotage it than all of the negative nattering.
