My TV has issues with ABC (which is why we watch LOST at a friend’s place on Wednesday nights) so we got no Oscar love tonight. I did see the following quote though from Sean Penn, that just made me laugh.
“You commie homo-loving sons of guns. I did not expect this, and I want it to be very clear that I do know how hard I make it to appreciate me, often, but I am touched by the appreciation.” — Sean Penn, accepting the best actor Oscar for his role in “Milk.”
He was excellent in Milk, it’s a well earned win. Heath Ledger = YAY!! He was so, so brilliant in Dark Knight (though I did think it was hilarious that Robert Downey Jr. was up against him for his role in Tropic Thunder). Didn’t see her performance but I love Kate Winslet. And Slumdog Millionaire was a lovely film and I’m glad they did so well tonight.
How was Hugh Jackman? I was looking forward to seeing him.
