Just a quick Oscar note
I was incredibly thrilled to see Scorsese win his Best Director Oscar last year. That thrill was doubled tonight when he gave the statue to Joel and Ethan Coen for No Country for Old Men. Much like Scorsese's, the Coens' Oscar for directing was long, long overdue, at least since Fargo.

After tonight, Fran will have five Oscars on the mantle to dust. o(:o)

I jumped and cheered when No Country won. :D Though I have to admit, this year's Oscar's were shockingly predictable. Just about all of my personal picks were spot-on with the actual winners, and that almost never happens.

A rare case of Oscar getting it mostly right. I think the last couple of years made AMPAS take a look at what they'd been doing, especially after Jon Stewart's beautiful rebuke back in 2006.
