(6:22 AM) | Old - Doug Johnson:
Oscar Blogging: The Morning AfterCoattails: Graham King, William Monahan, and Thelma Schoonmaker should send flowers thanking Jon Stewart after receiving Oscars for their work on The Departed - Monahan should also include a large check; Melissa Etheridge can simply write "To the real star of the 79th Academy Awards, Father Earth" on the card with her arrangement.
Peter O'Toole is a consumate actor: my stomach did half a turn watching him regain composure after a split second in which he looked as if he'd been socked in the solar plexus
The Three Amigos: 16 nominations, 4 awards, zero in major categories. Definitely the lowlight of my Oscar evening.
How were my picks: My predictions, 3 out of 7 (Alan Arkin, Scorsese, Mirren); If I had chosen, 1 out of 4 (Scorsese). Brad's choices did a good bit better, 3 for 5 (Mirren, Whitaker, Arkin)
