And The Oscar Goes To....... :)

The 80th Academy Awards with Jon Stewart @ the helm were a bit dry. There were a few political jokes. The best being the reference he made to Hillary & Obama. That when there's a woman or Afro American as President in the movies there's usually a meteor about to hit the planet. :) There was an abundance of video clips covering 80 years of the Oscars. The depth of the stars of yesteryear left the audience wondering if today's celebrities will ever come close to their greatness.... Gay visibility was topped by a touching moment when Scott Rudin accepted the award for Best Picture for No Country for Old Men, thanked his partner, John Barlow, by name, & referred to him as "honey". Also among the winners @ the awards show was "Freeheld: The Laurel Hester Story," a doc about a dying Ocean County woman's struggle to get death benefits for her lesbian partner. The flick, by New York filmmaker Cynthia Henry, won for Best Short Documentary. Besides from this, our community was barely represented... Ellen DeGeneres was definitely missed... FYI, Pink Martini were the entertainment @ the Governor's Ball. When I chat with them I promise to share all the Hot Gossip!! :)
