The Oscars are now 50% “Hunkier”…

I must have been under a rock for a while, or perhaps so ambivalent about movies anymore that it just hit me that the Oscars are this weekend. Haven’t they already engraved Heath Ledger’s name on the Best Actor trophy, and awarded Slumdog Millionaire Best Picture? I thought this was done and done. I guess not. They still need to go through with the actual ceremony, which is as exciting as watching a tax preparer review your form 6254-B.  There is usually nothing compelling about the Oscar event, or any other awards ceremony. At least with the Grammys or American Music Awards there is a chance that some random rockstar will show up in a percodan induced haze.  Not at the Oscars.  This year, however, they have at least done SOMETHING to improve watchability…

Hollywood phonies in the first 10 rows may get wet.

Hugh Freakin’ Jackman is the host. Trust me, my wife’s eyes will be FIXED on that screen.  I’m sorry, but this move I approve of. At least we now have a host who has actually; A) Been in movies that people have watched and liked… B). has KILLED someone on screen (plural)… C). can never die.

Ladies…take your pick, who would you rather stare at for 4 hours on a Sunday Night. The guy above…This guy:

No! Don't make me watch "Father's Day" again!!!!
No! Don't make me watch "Father's Day" again!!!!

Or…this guy:

A crazed fan bit off my other ear...but I manage.

The choice is clear…but I was busy. Give ’em hell, Wolverine…
