    Yeah, I've noticed that Trek seems to be to go-to movie in gadget advertisements lately.

    No surprise there, either. But again, a completely deserving Oscar. Up was my favorite film of the year.

    No surprises with Up's win, but hey, it was a very good film (even if it wasn't quite among Pixar's best, IMO).

    I've never heard of The Secret of Kells. Maybe I should check it out -- anyone here seen it?

    I should have seen The Princess & The Frog when it was in theaters. It looks good.

    I still need to see Up.

    No idea who will win Original Song.

    I still don't get how "Down in New Orleans" ended up one of The Princess and the Frog's two nominated songs; "Friends on the Other Side" and "Dig A Little Deeper" were both much better.

    Totally deserved win for "The Weary Kind".

    Yet another given. Hmm, I notice every winner so far has been the last nominee listed.

    Yeah... I believe it's still playing at a discount theatre near me. I think I'll go check it out.

    How could have gone to any other song? The others were awful.

    What the hell's up with starting at 8:30? I missed a half-hour cause I figured it was on at 9 when I didn't see it at 8.

    Up is wonderful.

    I can't wait to see it.

    It just looks really good.

    I'm glad! I thought I missed a full hour!

    Man, Shatner must have hit the gym bigtime to get ready for his appearance there.

    Wait...what?

    Hmm, I thought it had started at 8:30 in previous years too.

    I wonder if the best song award being so early means no performances this year. That would be a shame. I always enjoyed those.
