Hard to count the Oscars as anything but a success - Marty got his trophy finally, though this was hardly his best film. And Al got attention all night long, plus the documentary crowd didn't disappoint, recognizing An Inconvenient Truth for its importance, even if it wasn't the best-made doc of the year. What did you think?
One of the most fun things about it was to read some right-wing blogs during the night, like National Review's The Corner, which had its contributors weighing in during the show. They were so annoyed by the Gore love-fest, it was fun to read. (They're such blowhards you have to scroll down pretty far just to get to last night's posts.)
