    So what did you guys think of the 84th Academy Awards? I'm glad 'The Artist' won Best Picture and Best Director. I'm also glad for Meryl Streep getting her 3rd Oscar (after 30 years) though I would have preferred Michelle Williams.

    I wish they would all win, because they're STARS. When 1 movie wins, the rest lose and that makes me cry.

    The Academy Awards are an irrelevant spectacle run by those who have been out of touch for ages. I mean, really, The Artist for Best Picture? It's a movie built around a cheap gimmick; it's not necessarily bad, but do you really think that it will stand the test of time? Will it matter? Will anyone still be talking about it in 10 years? Or 5? Hell, even 1? (And the same can be said of other "Best Pictures" over the ages, from How Green Is My Valley to Slumdog Millionaire, from My Fair Lady to The King's Speech, from Shakespeare in Love to Crash, etc., etc.)

    At least Sacha Baren Cohen got a good joke on Ryan Seacrest; Joel McHale must have really enjoyed that one.

    Nothing. I didn't watch it. All it is, is a booster shot to the movie industry to keep it going until the next ceremony.

    The only thing I enjoyed about it was when SBC, The Dictator, poured ashes over Ryan Secrest, I don't care if I spelt his last name wrong because I'm an Ignorant bastard.
