2008 Oscars

My two favorites of the evening (also known as when I screeched loudly as the names were announced):

Glen Hasard and Marketa Irglova, Best Original Song "Falling Slowly" from Once

They totally deserved it. I was so happy that Jon Stewart brought Marketa back out to say thank you, because I almost cried (quite literally) when the music started playing when she started to talk.


Ellen Page and Diablo Cody, Juno

Diablo Cody is my new favorite. Not only does she seem like the coolest person ever to have lived, but I love her writing style; it's such an inspiration to me. I hope I have a confident voice like hers at some point in my writing career. ANYWAYS. SHE WON THE FREAKING OSCAR FOR BEST SCREENPLAY.

I was excited. The awards were fun last night. I liked all the little montages and splices from the past 80 years of Oscars. I love Jack Lemmon and he popped up quite a few times in there.

In other news, my computer is WAY messed up (after spending 2.5 hours on the phone with a man in India last night, my dad realized there needed to be a service call), i.e. I'm waiting for a replacement keyboard and mouse pad/area/thing. So Pete was gracious enough to let me use his fancy schmancy Apple laptop all day, since he's in school. Thanks boo!

Light posting the next couple of days? I don't understand Macs, so sorry.

One last picture: here's me, utterly confused about this smaller, whiter, brighter little laptop:

(or not. because i have no clue how to find it.)

Hurrah for Irglova, Hansard and Cody! Now, only if little Ellen had won best actress, the night would have been complete.

But that cute French actress from La Vie en Rose won me over just from her acceptance speech. Plus, she's in Big Fish which is also a favorite.

Whoa, I had no clue that Marion Cotillard was in Big Fish! But she was Josephine...hmm. I love that movie. And she is SO GORGEOUS. I'm excited to see La Vie en Rose. Edith Piaf was amazing.
