was SO heartwarming! I like how the nominees are congratulated and highlighted before the names are announced. Kathryn Bigelow also gave a great speech. While I wish Lee Daniels would have won for Best Director, having a woman finally win is good, too. So it must be interesting for one to congratulate one’s ex-wife on the Academy Award that she bet one on, huh? I’m just saying. Ok. Time to shut the tv off. You know, that article and all.
about Jeff Bridges winning – he has had such a great career and to finally receive an Oscar is like really nice icing on a gourmet cake. He’s been married 33 years – IN HOLLYWOOD! Wow.
First, I would like to thank the Academy for showing that it can be about the performance and not the politics. I want to thank Miss Hattie McDaniel for enduring all that she had to so that I would not have to. Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey because you touched it, the whole world saw it. Ricky Anderson, our attorney of Anderson & Smith, thank you for your hard work. My entire BET family, my Precious family, thank you so much. To my amazing husband Sidney, thank you for showing me that sometimes you have to forego doing what’s popular in order to do what’s right. And baby, you were so right. God bless us all.
She looks really great and gave an excellent speech.I did not plan to live blog, but I thought I’d add that. LOL.
I think it is so great that Precious won for adaptive screenplay! Geoffrey S. Fletcher was so happy and so humble. Did anybody see Sapphire! I’ll bet it is such a thrill to be sitting at the Academy Awards with such great honor bestowed upon the film version of her book! The tribute to John Hughes was really touching, too.
