I watched the Oscars in pieces parts. Mostly on this enormous, wall-filling, plasma screen TV (awesome, dude) at a party. So I don't have a lot to say about it because I don't have any through line to it. Want to say something, though, don't want to be shunned at the (nonexistent) water cooler in the morning.

So, I'll say this because she's on right now: Queen Latifah is the hottest, coolest, chick you ever did see, is she not? I mean, she just makes you think you not only know her but that she'd like you and be nice to you, no matter what and that you would be hot by association if you stood next to all the hot ass confidence rolling right off of her.

Also, how cool was it that they colored Ellen's lapel mics to match her coolio velvet tux? (It is possible that you might not have noticed this if you weren't watching on a TV screen the size of my entire apartment but I promise that it's true.)


  1. Loved the velvet tux.

    And I still want to grow up to be Helen Mirren.

    Best speech goes to the guy who won for live action short (but I still have some left to watch on the dvr).

    I have ALWAYS maintained that Queen Latifah is the BOMB. I love her for ALL of the reasons you mentioned, and then some. Did you see her Actors' Studio spot?

    Along the same lines, I also love Sarah Ramirez and America Ferrera. I love and admire women who are completely at home in their own skin, and who radiate sexy despite the fact that they don't look like what society says they "should." THESE are the women I want my daughters to look up to...

  3. "hot ass confidence".....I like that!

    Good Oscar-ing with you last night. Man, they need an editor. That show is too long.

  4. Chili -- have you seen Real Women Have Curves?
