    All I saw of George was him running up and down the fence schmoozing the crowd.

    Which actually makes him a good businessman. God knows he can't act.

    What did Monique's Best Supporting Actress acceptance speech mean?

    "About the performance and not the politics"? Does that mean she's saying she won because she gave the best performance? That if someone else had won it would have been about politics?

    The first sounds conceited, the second like a slap in the face. Am I missing something here? I haven't seen the film 'Precious', so maybe it's got something to do with that. Very odd thing to say.

    It's because studio's pimp out their stars and movies that are nominated, and do all kinds of 'favors' to try and get the votes. This was a 'little' movie made with a low budget compared to all the block busters, without any big stars, like say, Sandra Bullock.

    No, you nailed it. It was an ingracious, decidedly un-humble and quite conceited piece of crap.

    Her whole speech was a black power fist in the air.....and every black person in the audience held back from pumping their fist, as it would have been inappropriate, indelicate and made them all look like Kanye West, only at the Oscars and not the MVA's.

    I do hope that's not the case. Echo (or I guess I should say Echeaux) has another explanation which I think makes sense.

    I've got to say that I don't like Monique, but the clips that they showed made it clear that she really can act.

    George and Alex are just playing with each other.

    Clooney isn't pissed, he always looks like that unless he's smilling.

    Anyone else think that a majority of the women's hair looks awful? Is the 'wind-tunnel' look in this year?

    Was glad that Michael Giacchino won for music. Love his stuff.
