i’m sure i’ll have more for you later…but here is a little tasty taste for you this morning..

best acceptance speech, by far, was by Best Actress winner (a HUGE surprise for me, btw. i was totally expecting a Cate Blanchett win), Marion Cotillard for her role in La Vie en Rose :

"Oh –thank you so much. Olivier, what you did to me, Maestro
Olivier Dahan, you rocked my life. You truly rocked my life. Thank you
so much to Picturehouse for your passion, members of the Academy, thank
you so, so much. And — wow. Well, I’m speechless now. I — I — well,
I — thank you life, thank you love, and it is true, there is some
angels in this city. Thank you so, so much."

the biggest Oscar oops…was, by far, the omission of Jaws star Rob Scheider, who died early this month, from the clip montage…

    Is it just me, or are there an awful lot of commonalities between the deaths of Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley?

    Best maternity is Jessica for sure. I did love all the colour this year, it was a nice change.

    I think Cate is gorgeous.. but I do prefer Jessica’s dress – love the colour!
    I adored Heidi’s dress too – she always looks amazing!

    Jessica didn’t even look pregers. Both are beautiful.
    Tilda Swinton finally got the Oscar she deserved! She’s an odd one so not suprised about the dress.
    My bet was on Marion Cotillard for best actress, even though Cate was amazing in Elizabeth. In fact her reaction to Marion winning was incredible – she was super happy for her!
    Lot’s of international winners this year.

    oh. my. god.
    Brad Renfro.
    can’t believe they missed him.

    Cate for sure.

    agreed about rob scheider being in next year rather than this year. i thought the bigger omission was brad renfro – he died before heath ledger, and he’s definitely known for films he did. “the client” anyone? why wasn’t he in there?

  • http://www.baadmedicine.blogspot.com Teri

    Cate over Jessica for sure!

    ah…okay…Audrey, i guess that makes sense since he died in February…

    Very happy for Diablo Cody!!! I didn’t really have a ‘want-to-win’ person for anything else… need to see more movies!
    Hmmm, what the bleepity-bleep was Tilda Swinton wearing? A crushed-velvet potato sack?

    And of course by 2006 I meant 2007, and by 2007 I meant 2008. Sorry.

  • http://sangrialover.com audrey

    I noticed that the beginning of the “people who died” montage noted it was for something like Feb 1, 2006 — Jan 31, 2007. So maybe that’s why Rob Scheider wasn’t included. I imagine we’ll see him up there next year.
