A summary of my Oscar Tweets, Part 2
7:23 p.m. The salute to the late John Hughes is a nice touch. Hughes made teen movies that you didn't have to be ashamed to watch. Someone mentions that this edition of Oscar seems more scripted than any other in recent history. 7:14 p.m. Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) upsets Quentin Tarantino and wins for best original screenplay. Finally, something good happens to a journalist -- that would be Boal, who covered the war in Iraq. 7:05 p.m. The voters actually picked the best song, The Weary Kind from Crazy Heart. 7:10 p.m. Someone at my table says Amanda Seyfried has terrible posture. 6:59 p.m. Up wins best animated feature. Fantastic Mr. Fox gets robbed and Oscar continues on its predictable course.
