[quote=“Richardm”]Foxx had one of the better acceptance speeches in recent years. Chris Rock was funny. Robin Williams did some funny stuff as well as Adam Sandler. I liked the Johnny Carson tribute, too. Yoyo Ma made be cry, or it might have been the pictures of everyone who passed away last year, or else the medication I’m on.
Did you see when Jeremy Irons was about ready to present something and there was a loud noise off stage? He said, “I hope they missed.” That was cool.
First time I’ve watched the Oscars live in many years. I enjoyed the show.[/quote]
Yeah, great speech. No bullshit. Personal and touching. Loved it.
Well, I thought Chris Rock was a little caustic. Although he balanced his humor with some decent self-deprecating, I thought a few people would be put off by some of his more inflammatory remarks. Robin, always funny, but getting to be the same…didn’t he do that Nicholson doing Shakespeare bit a few years back…“To be or not to goddman be…”
I agree on Irons timing there. Deadpan and perfect. Truly a comic genius or whatever Rock intro’d him as. I wish they had given Sandler more to do. He cracks me up. He is such an everyman comic. I love his work.
YoYo was brilliant too. Richard, you gotta see these flicks tho. Ray was fantastic, as was Million Dollar Baby. I was really surprised to not see Jonathan Demme, Meryl Streep or Denzel Washington not nominated for MAnchurian Candidate, or was that last year?
I haven’t seen any of the movies, except for The Incredibles. I’m glad they won. Shark Tales sucked.[/quote]
It more bit than sucked doncha think?
Glad to see you back RM.
