    And the whole movie was done using only the CS5 suite of tools, too.

    I thought that this was one of the best Academy Awards show in years, and thought that Crystal did a grand job - poked just enough fun at the Academy, and society, in general, and seemed to keep things rolling right along.

     

    Too bad that Baster and Wall did not "thank Adobe... "

    Why do they have these live shows always in the middle of the night...

    Well...they start at a reasonable hour.  But there's just sooooo many people to thank.

    For Ann, unless it is tape-delayed, about Noon?

     

    For AZ, the timing was good, as I had seen most of the FoxNews line up, and wife really, really wanted to watch.

     

    Noticed that Meryl Streep did not thank Margret Thatcher, but did heap kudos onto her makeup/hair person. Not saying that that stylish is not accomplished, professional and great, but then the "subject" should have gotten at least honorable mention - at least in my book.

    A good friend, who travels in literary and academic circles, once typified "awards nights," as an incestuous rite of passing footnotes to each other."

     

    Somehow, I see the same, or very similar, in such events.

     

    At least the Academy Awards are but once per year. I think that The Country Music Awards are given every month, or at least it seems so. Same for the Hip-Hop Awards, which come on, in PHX, about every other week.

     

    I am just glad that the show (Academy Awards) did not get as "political," as they often do, because that has been known to make my head explode, and blood shoot out my eyes. This year, things were pretty benign - at least for a "flaming conservative," like me.

    When I was nominated, I had a full list of "the little people," but never got the chance - did not make the first cut. It was sort of like finishing 22nd in an Olympics event. At least I was ready, with about 3,000 folk to "thank." Maybe the Academy saw my list... ?

    If Crystal is part of Fight Night, here in PHX, and is around for our Founder's Club night, prior to the actual event, I will give him kudos, and then thank him for supporting us. Last year, he did a "livingroom chat" instead of the usual David Foster "musical review." A bit of a change, but well-done. Crystal can be so very funny, at least in my book.
