There is a God and He is just…

How do I know? Philip Seymour Hoffman won ​“Best Actor” for his amazing work in Capote.

Other good things from last night’s debacle:

  • I’ve grown slightly tired of Ben Stiller’s brand of funny, but that green scene suit bit was great
  • The lobbying commercials were just the sort of thing I’d expect from Jon Stewart et al… brilliant!
  • Five words: ​“It’s hard out here for a pimp”
  • Speaking of the 36 Mafia, Stewart was right: they seemed to be having the most fun of anyone there
  • Diana Ossana’s impassive face was absolutely riveting during her acceptance speech
  • On the other hand, Gavin Hood’s speech for Tsotsi, was just great (and he took a nice little dig at the time limits)

As for ​“bad” things, only one stands out in my mind. Can someone tell me what in the hell was going on with the interpretive dancing?!? It made otherwise great performances seem like self-parodies.
