That's right, folks! Wolverine hosted the Academy Awards! Last night, he was sans sideburns and claws, but it was him!!!
Hugh Jackman, in my humble opinion, is the best host this show has ever had! I loved the opening number with "his" nod to the recession. You know the one that he spent the whole night in his garage putting together for us? (Watch it on You Tube...Laugh out loud funny! You will love it!) Loved the musical numbers...that man can sing and dance! He is one hunkalicious host! No wonder he's the Sexiest Man Alive!
It was a return to the glamour of old Hollywood. I loved the intimate elegance of the theatre. The stars looked radiant! (and to be perfectly honest, I normally don't give two cents about celebrities, but I couldn't resist the pull of Wolverine...)
I loved the way the presenters set up each category like they were creating a documentary along the way. (and Seth Rogen and James Franco were hilarious in their nod to the comedies of 2008!) Chilly actually sat through the first hour!
It was truly moving to watch the past winners share accolades with the nominees. And cheers to Penelope Cruz for reminding us that "this ceremony was a moment of unity for the world because art, in any form, is and has been and will always be our universal language and we should do everything we can, everything we can, to protect its survival." Amen to that, sister!
I was a little worried, however, when Rob Pattinson came out to present an award. (Twilight Hottie Vampire...for those of you who don't know...) I was concerned that Hugh might come running onstage and go all Van Helsing on him.
Thankfully, however, no hot vampires were harmed during the show.
I have a few awards I would like to share this morning as well...
Best Lead Actor.....Tween Caveboy for his dramatic role in "No Country For Tween Caveboys"...(Tween Caveboy also won for Best Musical Score with his "Ode to Metallica" score.)
Best Lead Actress...Catherine for her very moving performance in "Blah-g...My Life Exposed By My Blogging Mommy"...
Best Supporting Actress...Christine in "Driving Mr. Chilly"...
Best Costume Design and Art Direction....Mommy (for her many achievements in making sure her actor & actress are always dressed for their parts and for creating beautiful sets for their performances....
Best Director...Mommy...(this should be self explanatory...sorry Chilly, maybe next year for you...)
We'd like to thank our producer, Chilly, without whom we would not be making this beautiful movie we call "Life." Thank you, Chilly.
Overall, it was a lovely evening! Now, I'm off to drag my stars out of their trailers to begin shooting our morning scenes in our current production of "The Curious Case of Bloggy McBlogmom."
p.s. Now scroll back up to the You Tube linky for the opening number! It's worth watching! Giggle worthy!! Go on now...scroll up!!!
