// I miss Robert Garlock too, as it happens.
// Very nice, also, the acknowledgement of Manny Farber. A Condon consideration, I'd reckon. He knows about that stuff.
// The Franco/Rogen thingie was the funniest of the thingies.
// I'm real glad I didn't live-blog it, and that I only followed the thoughts of others who were doing so via occasional peeks at Facebook updates. Lame is lame, I agree, but if, as Cyril Connolly once noted, nothing dates like hate, well, hate via Twitter just curdles into useless snot instantly. One actually funny comment amid all of it was a bit about the various "Justice Leagues" of acting award presenters.
// I see that Joel Stein was credited for "additional material." I say we start a rumor that he wrote the opening number, the most excruciating in Oscar history since that Rob Lowe/Snow White horror. I think Jackman recovered very nicely, though.
// The wife and I had a great time with a swell group of friends. Hope you did too.
