Overall, I'm disappointed in all the wins for The Artist. I kinda agree that Clooney is similar in several movies, but I far preferred his performance to the over-the-top mugging that was Jean Dujardin.

Anyway, congrats to Meryl Streep. I didn't see Iron Lady, but I always enjoy her speeches.

I have to say Tom Cruise looked very good. Whoever takes care of him has mad skills.

His insides have been replaced with animatronics. Disney Imagineering at its finest. ;)

Meryl's been robbed so many other times, I'm fine with her winning.

And :cheer2: to Uggie. Too darned cute.

Hubby and I were :huh: when she said that. I am sure most people are thrilled for her.

I know a lot of people who think she has won a lot more Oscars than (now) 3. :shuffle:

Has there been any buzz that Meryl is retiring?? Her speech almost sounded like a farewell speech to me.

Must be the same people who think Michelle Kwan is a two-time OGM :lol:

Ben Mulroney on CTV News gushing about what a wonderful show it was. What kind of drugs do they give out to the entertainment reporters?

In another thread someone mentioned that they thought she was on drugs or drink at these award ceremonies. I have always thought she has a shy side that presents at these activities and is both delighted by all of the accolades but also wants people to understand she is no prima dona. I believe that she believes we tire of hearing her name. And I think she believes that because she is modest. I like her a lot both in character and when she interviews.

My French coworker is over the moon tonight. He said he saw Dujardin perform as part of a very lame comedy troupe at his brother's graduation. And my coworker is not that old. :lol:

And he had fun with the FCC not giving a crap with bleeping out curse words in non-English languages. Dujardin apparently yelled, "Waahhouuu f*cking sh*t thank you so much!"

He also had fun at the Olympics hearing Brian Joubert curse, "The Olympics are a f*cking b*tch!" in the K&C with impunity. :rofl:

Well...I guess that's one way to get around the censors...LOL!!

Wish I could say it's been fun Gang, but you all made it a wee bit less boring. Thanks for that and see you all here next year.

Hmm, I haven't considered this possibility. :P

Yay! Thank goodness Meryl won.

I don't think she was referring to just the Oscars when she mentioned that half of America probably didn't want her up there - she's been winning many major awards left and right for TIL, and many others for her previous work. I can understand why she might joke about people thinking she's oversaturated. And her "whatever!" was hilarious; she does that so well - the whole being a bit of a diva but without the slightest hint of bitchiness. And I wouldn't say she wasn't expected to win - I had thought that the popular consensus was that it was between her and Viola?

People new to Meryl might have gotten the impression that her speech was a bit corny, but IMO as a longtime follower of hers, it was most genuine and heartfelt.
