OH MY GOD. THAT WAS THE COOLEST INTRODUCTION EVER. I literally was laughing for half of the movie.
Shame on you, Hobbits, starting this war! Shame on you! (Michael Moore is squished by an Oliphaunt)
You know, the first time I hosted this show was 13 years ago. Things were so different then... Bush was president, the economy was tanking, and we'd just finished a war in Iraq. Isn't that amazing?
Billy just finished singing. why is he singing again? Get on with it, man?
OK, i can cope with the song about LOTR... hehehe...
Gah, he's singing about every nominee for best picture, isn't he......
It's about time. Catherine Zeta-Jones is the first presenter. (OMG, i love british accents)
Best supporting actor: Tim Robbins- Mystic River
(Thinking during commercials- result of a commercial for HP featuring Fender guitars- I was inspired this weekend by my guildies in EQ to get out my guitar and practice. My fingers hurt.)
The academy let me come and go the last couple of years- it's kind of like the Texas National Guard.
If you hear someone thanking the little people, they're probably talking about Hobbits.
Mmm... Ian McClellan... Wizardy goodness. "Peter Jackson makes you believe in Middle Earth by taking you there."
*eyes tear up* I love this part... "You bow to no one."
Why does Angelina Jolie get "Wild Thing" played as she enters?

I'm so gonna cry... And yup, eyes tearing up... so pretty... Oooh, harp... Huh? only one verse? Gyp! Gyp!
Commercial. Going to get the power cord, I think. (I'm sitting downstairs in the back room watching the show) Nah. Too lazy. I have 3 hours of battery... I might make it. I love the Wizard of Oz M&M's commercial. :)
Billy Crystal is too damn funny.
Heh, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith just entered to "Love and Marriage"... They're such a disgrace to the Hollywood community :)
