A summary of my Oscar Tweets, Part 7
9:35 p.m. Good for Jeff Bridges. Everyone knew he'd win and you gotta love a guy who seems to enjoy winning. He calls acting a "groovy profession." The Dude abides. 9:28 p.m. Having actors and actresses who starred with the best actor nominees introduce each one of them is a nice touch. 9:25 p.m. Damn, Up in the Air should win something. 9:15 p.m. The Oscar for best foreign language film goes to (The Secret in Their Eyes (El Secreto de Sus Ojos) from Argentina. A total Oscar fake out. As always, Oscar honors a film that no one has seen, bypassing The White Ribbon and A Prophet. It better be one hell of a film. But credit the director for giving a shout-out to Chile, which badly needs one.
