The Oscars were so-so I thought but maybe that was because I was all smoked up and kept loosing interest in it. Anyway, I REALLY enjoyed seeing Jamie Foxx win the best actor award for, "Ray." While I thought "Ray" had a somewhat weak plot line I was impressed with Foxx's performance as Ray Charles. He was so convincing for me that I kept forgetting that I was watching Foxx and not the really Ray Charles.
My publicist (my wife) and I thought that Hillary Swank was looking quite, well...swanky? She was looking G O R G E O U S!!!! E! Entertainment channel, however, gave her low marks for her dress but my accountant (my wife) and I thought she look stunning and beautiful. Those people at E! are just jealous that she looks so beautiful AND she is an amazing actress!
The best part of the show, however, came at the very beginning when Chris Rock took direct aim at George dubya Bush. Below I have included most of what he said about Bush. You Bush supporters out there you might want to stop reading NOW.
This from Reuters: Rock drew some of his biggest laughs with political jabs aimed at President George W. Bush, the involuntary star of Michael Moore's scathing documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11."
Rock noted that Moore's film, though shut out of the Oscar competition, was breaking box office records at the time Bush was running for re-election.
"Can you imagine applying for a job, and while you're applying for that job there's a movie in every theatre in the country that shows how much you suck in that job?" Rock said. "It would be hard to get hired, wouldn't it?"
Rock kept on rocking with this zigger, "When Bush got into office there was a surplus of money. Now there's, like, a $70 trillion deficit. Just imagine if YOU worked at the Gap, and you're closing out your register and YOU'RE $70 trillion short!"
Rock again, "Bush did some things you could never get away with at your job, man. ... Just imagine you worked at the Gap. You're $70 trillion behind on your register and then you start a war with Banana Republic 'cause you say they got toxic tank tops over there. You have the war, people are dying, a thousand Gap employees are dead, bleeding all over the khakis, you finally take over Banana Republic, and you find out they never made tank tops in the first place."
This next quote is about the Iraq war from Rock but it was not included in his Oscar monologue. I decided to include it though because it fits the theme and is so true.
ROCK: “Bush lied to me, man. He said we got to move on Iraq because they’re the most dangerous regime on Earth. If they’re so dangerous, how come it only took two weeks to take over the whole f*cking country? You couldn’t take over the Bronx in two weeks. You’d need a month to get the Grand Concourse.”
Well, that's my Oscar report.
Now make good with the deal and bring me the happy pills. HAHAHA!!
