How do you RATE last night's Oscar show and winners? Was that really Doogie Howser opening the show? What's up with that? I do, however, like Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin as hosts. They make a good team. I loved Steve Martin's remark about how he and Mo' Nique are alike: They were both born poor black children! Oh, that made me laugh! If you're too young, you won't get that. They had quite a few funny bits. Without some humor, I wouldn't watch for three minutes!
Best Picture - The Hurt Locker (I'm soooo disappointed!)
Actor in a Leading Role - Jeff Bridges (I was rooting for my fave, Morgan Freeman)
Actress in a Leading Role - Sandra Bullock (Yes!)
Directing - Kathryn Bigelow (Finally, a woman, but I was rooting for James Cameron)

More importantly... how do you rate the fashion? I loved some of the dresses: Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Queen Latifah, and Sandra Bullock. Most, I admit, were unimpressive, and some were downright, "What was she thinking?". My favorite "tweet" about the fashion was this: RT @justinfrechette Zoe Saldana's dress looks like she is carrying Cookie Monster on her train. Doesn't that crack you up!?

Overall, I RATE the show GOOD. Love the John Hughes tribute. Loved the dancing. And loved the speeches where the winners were actually gracious (for example, Sandra Bullock). The hosts made a great team and kept me in stitches. The 82nd Academy Awards will probably win an Emmy for outstanding awards show.
