This is how you give the perfect Oscar acceptance speech (don’t forget to thank Meryl).

Did anyone else think that last night’s hairstyles had an uncanny resemblance to…baked goods?

None of this year’s nine Best Picture nominees (The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse) counted as dark, nihilistic, or shocking—like some of last year’s leading contenders, including Black Swan, 127 Hours, and Winter’s Bone. None of this year’s major nominees featured the overt left-wing political messages of other recent Oscar favorites like Avatar or Milk, and all of this year’s Best Picture possibilities took affectionate, admiring views of marriage, romance, family, and community, with Moneyball also honoring baseball and business, while War Horse glorified some of the same battlefield virtues depicted in Act of Valor.
Did last night’s Oscars celebrate conservative values? (Was that why they were so bad?)

Can we all agree that Emma Stone was hands down the funniest lady at the awards show last night?

“She was merely doling out the screenplay awards, but her pose bore a definite, don’t-[bleep]-with-me trace of the gunslinger, and so it was, across the time zones, that a billion people sat there with their hands up: Freeze.” Anthony Lane in The New Yorker

  1. 'The Artist' Wins Big at Oscars: French favorite The Artist picked up beaucoup awards at the Oscars last night, winning Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and two other smaller prizes. 
  2. Diplomatic Call Syria Vote a ShamThe Syrian city of Homs remains under fire Monday by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, even as the government tallies votes on a constitutional referendum that Western leaders have dismissed as a sham. 
  3. Plot to Kill Putin Foiled: A plot to kill Vladimir Putin by a group of Ukrainian assassins was uncovered by a joint operation of Ukrainian and Russian intelligence services, according to Russian news sources.

As a result, viewings of Midnight in Paris on the big screen became events in the Smug Olympics of the urban iPad class, with audiences risking physical injury as they competed to laugh the loudest to demonstrate to all around that yes, they know who Gertrude Stein is. It was laughter directed at the audience itself, not at the screen. Laughing to show you get the joke. Or since there are no jokes, laughing to show you get the reference.
