    The most boring, predictable, and awful Oscar telecast I have seen in years. Alec Baldwin looked stiff (for whom, I don't know), the jokes fell flat, Monique seemed to feel she deserved the Oscar (Did she forget that Woopi Goldberg won in that catagory?); while I like Kathryn Bigelow, she hardly has much of a career and won the Oscar over Quentin Tarantino, whose body of works eclipses hers by a long shot; if there wasn't a predicatable catagory, I don't know of one - weeks before going in, we knew the winners, who only tried to act surprised; the only good part was the surprise and humorous introduction by Neil Patrick Harris, whose song lyrics were riotous and presentation more flamboyant that Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco. Otherwise, at four hours and thirty five minutes, it stunk.

    I refused to watch the telecast when I heard that Miley Cyrus and Zac Efron would be presenting.
    Sorry AMPAS. Not watching this year.
    And from the sound of things, I didn't miss much.

    Avatar was ignored I think because people are sick of James Cameron's ego and they would look good honoring a woman director: you kill two birds with one statuette...

    I predicted Jeff Bridges & Christoph Waltz would win and they did. Well-deserved wins. Very well-deserved.
    Mo'Nique? Let's see if she ever wins again.
    Sandra Bullock was a Good Housekeeping prize. She looked absolutely stunning. I saw her picture from the show in today's paper. Ooh la la...
    But like Mo'Nique, let's see if she ever wins again, like Cuba Gooding Jr. or Angelina Jolie. How many faces you got in your pockets ladies?
    How many dazzling showcases of thespian greatness can you whip out?
    No more roles for paychecks and trophies.
    Let's SHINE from now on. ha ha ha
    Ben Stiller looked freakish in that blue make-up and yellow eyeballs...not a great thing to pore over with your morning java...

    I'll finally see Avatar this Thursday night. Looking forward to the award-winning cinematography.

    And why wasn't Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story the Best Picture winner? Just asking. That film is incredible.

    Enjoyable Focus on Films This Year

    This year's Academy Awards brought a greater audience 41 million than since 2005 and rightly so. I enjoyed most of this year's event, even though there were a few surprises. But the increased focus on the actual films was a nice surprise, especially the foreign films and documentaries. This year I felt was a more focus on the films themselves, except perhaps on costume design. Hopefully this annual entertainment event will continue to improve on the beginnings of something resembling an increased respect for the filmmaker's products themselves. Even though most of my favorite films didn't even get nominated, the event itself was eventful not boring for me.

    I wanted THE HURT LOCKER to beat AVATAR but why it did I have no idea. Maybe as much as people love AVATAR the Academy loves affirmative action more, and money, profit and ego are a bit too blatantly on display in the AVATAR story.

    Exactly why that Argentinian movie with "LOS OJOS" in the title won over THE WHITE RIBBON and A PROPHET I have no idea, because I have not seen it. But recent Best Foreign nominations have been less completely off the wall than in the past. At least the fact WHITE RIBBON and A PROPHET were even nominated is a step forward, and they've both been amply celebrated elsewhere.

    I like Steve Martin's dry sense of humor and Alec Baldwin makes a good foil for him. The bedroom film was lame but the opening routine jokes made me laugh, and I don't laugh that easily. M'onique gave a good pointed and pungent acceptance speech. We could have been spared her weepy interviews thereafter. THE DUDE gave a sloppy self-indulgent one, totally forgettable.

    Why was George Clooney shown scowling? He has never scowled on camera before. Was it supposed to be funny?

    Both directors of the films I watched at the Miami International Film Festival last night thanked the audience for passing on the Oscars to watch the American premieres of their low-budget "art films" and near sell-out audiences clapped and cheered. I am quite happy I had something better to do than watch Bullock and Hurt Locker win. But I expected and predicted these wins. What would have broken my little heart is to watch the AMAZING short film THE DOOR, which deals with the tragedy of Chernobyl in a poetic and sublime manner, lose to a stupid little film about dudes who give their elderly neighbor a bag of heroin (left behind by a former tenant) thinking it was flour and the chaos that ensues. Finding out in retrospect doesn't hurt as much as watching it happen live. I haven't seen the winner from Argentina but I have been saying for years and years that Argentina is making the best cinema in the world except for the USA and China (and Mexico is not far behind). Besides, Howard has seen it and loved it.

    Secrets

    Sorry, Oscar, I haven't seen The Secrets in Their Eyes but was hoping it would win so I would have that opportunity. Campanella's 2001 film Son of the Bride is on my all time list of favorites.

    I saw a good Argentinian film today, a ND/NF screening:

    2:00 p.m.
    The Man Next Door (El hombre de al lado)
    Mariano Cohn/Gastón Duprat, Argentina; 2009; 100 min.
    Venue: MoMA Titus 2


    There are so many screenings I can't keep up to date with reviews right now, but this one is sophisticated and full of meanings both droll and serious; the ending a bit weak perhaps.

    There are so many good films coming out of Argentina that it is impossible to keep up unless you live in Buenos Aires. Well, actually, THE MAN NEXT DOOR doesn't open there until Fall 2010. The Miami fest, for the third year in a row, has more movies from Argentina than from any other country. All 1,400 seats for the closing night screening of Campanella's film had sold out before the Oscar win (at about $25 each!). Now they have added a second screening. I will wait to see it when it has its commercial run because I am committed to seeing as many American premieres with no distribution deal as I can.
