Ahhh, the academy awards. I watched them with Robert (retrocrush.com) and Linda Berry. The performance of the tune from Triplets of Belleville was great. And Peter Jackson referencing his earlier films Bad Taste and Meet the Feebles, two films you don't expect to hear mentioned in polite company, was nice. Billy Crystal was pretty boring, though his impersonation of Robin Williams was smack on. Jim Carrey was on a nice high. He was as bad as I've ever seen him. Blake Edwards was hillarious, pulling off a stunt wherein he crashed his wheelchair into a wall and then came wandering out to tell strange pointless stories. The Berry's have TIVO so we started late, watching on a delay and were then able to fast foward through much of the show. The only way to watch TV.
