Forget Seth “We Saw Your Boobs” McFarlane or the surprise (unnecessary?) appearance of FOTUS Michelle Obama.
The real Oscars® highlights were on Twitter. I love joining my fellow Tweeps for a good ol’ live tweet event. And, as with any Hollywood event, us “common folk” thrive on the missteps of the glitterai. There misfortune is our opportunity to out-snark each other in the hopes of gaining the glorious “retweet”. The tweet that is deemed so freakin hilarious, true or sincere that others feel it should be read by their Twitter feed audience.
Oscars® lowlight: Playing people off with the Jaws theme. Look, we all know that the only people who care about the winners of “Best Visual Effects” are the winners themselves and their Moms. But they just won a freakin’ Oscar. Let them have their moment. And if you simply have to play them off, a classic – not campy – tune will suffice…thankyouverymuch.
Twitter highlight: @dirtbagg “Can’t believe they’re using JAWS music to play people off. Why don’t they dump a bucket of water on the winner’s head while they’re at it”
Oscars® lowlight: George Clooney’s beard. (*sigh*)
Twitter highlight: @shopwithrobin: “I love you George Clooney, but the Cap’n Highliner look just isn’t doing it for me.”
Oscars® lowlight: The awkwardly awkward presentor duo of Mark Wahlberg and the CGI Ted. (Am I the only one who wants to call him Teddy Ruxpin?)
Twitter highlight: @scotchlarock “Only worth it if Marky Mark turns to Ted and says “say hi your mom for me”.
I was going to mention Anne Hathaway’s dress but I think the poor girl has suffered enough. I don’t want to be the one who sends her over the edge and into Britney territory where she starts throwing umbrellas, shaving her head and eating mass quantities of Cheetos.
