The Oscars

We didn't get to watch the Oscars proper this year. Doing so would have meant being up at 2:30 a.m. for the start here, and that would have resulted in a very late night (even later than the viewing one year in NYC). Thankfully, we could catch up with all the news Monday morning, and experience the essence via Defamer's Live Blog (complete with video). But we missed watching the show on our stunning entertainment center (complete with rabbit ears) and the snide comments from our fellow viewers. In short, we missed you all! Now our next task is to actually see the movies nominated, as they finally start coming to Germany (auf englisch).

We're so far ahead, we're actually behind. Meaning we tried to watch the Oscars on Monday evening here but soon realized when they were still playing the "red carpet" part at 8pm, that it was taped delay!! So we took looked on the web and saw all the winners in 10 minutes and watched a DVD instead.

I watched the last hour or so. I mostly liked watching the best/worst dressed commentary the next day.

You know me, I was so disappointed that Lindsey didn't even get a nod for "I Know Who Killed Me" that I boycotted the Oscars. Don't even get me started on the complete snub of "The Hottie and the Nottie"...what a ripoff!

Ann, you just nailed it. Why do you think we left the country in the first place?
