I actually watched the Oscars


It's been awhile since I last watched the Oscars. I think I briefly watched the hobbity bits, but not the entire event. I watched to see Jon Stewart and, for the most part, he didn't disappoint... for me. According to The Moderate Voice, the reviews are mixed. My own brief Technorati search for "Jon Stewart" turned up positive review after positive blog review, which seems to agree with my own understanding, which is that Jon Stewart made funny jokes if you are a Jon Stewart fan and made unfunny jokes if you happen to be the type of person who takes what actors wear to the Oscars seriously. I especially liked the Spielberg "Trilogy" joke and the fake lobbying ads ("Acting while beautiful"). The opening monologue and a montage of Jon Stewart jokes have made it onto YouTube -- hopefully other clips will make it up long enough for viewing before being taken down by a cease and desist letter.
