And then there were the comments. Lots and lots of comments.
Those are just the comments from the entries I forgot to turn off email notification for. So I went through and tried to read as many as I could--I'm going back through and re-enabling notification as well. But there were probably 1000+. Rest assured, however, that I read everything that was there as of midnight last night.
Wing and Sars from TWOP also blogged the Oscars (for Yahoo), but the headline "near-real-time blow-by-blow" on TWOP makes me think they fudged a bit.
Horoscope of the Day: In order to appreciate the value of winning, you have to lose sometimes.
Oh, you've got to be kidding me. Vladimir is still heartbroken over The Aviator losing last night, whereas I still can't believe it beat out Snicket for costumes and Snicket AND Phantom for set design. And I was rooting for The Aviator.
But that's okay, because I woke up in a world where Cate Blanchett has an Oscar, and that's a better world than yesterday's.

9:40 p.m.: "I've been looking forward to this all evening." Best Supporting Actress winner Cate Blanchett says as she faces the press, and I think she's being facetious. And then she turns her back on the press and quaffs a drink, and I know she's not being facetious.BWAH.
9:47 p.m: Blanchett, on whether the Oscar will turn her into a diva: "Absolutely, you asshole!"
9:49 p.m.: Blanchett wraps her press conference, but not her thirst. "Can I get back to the champagne now?" she says as she heads off.
