And the winner is...Oscar Night
..Hugh Jackman, I believe. And this year's producers of the Oscars, overall. those are the winners, big time, for the 2008 Oscars. It was such a fantastic show. Great set, albeit expensive, wonderful structure - I especially loved the spoken tributes by past winners to the nominees, entertaining performances from the host, and very funny, moving or otherwise appropriate script.
I really loved it when Hugh Jackman sang about how he was "Wolverine." That was awesome. I did know that he was good at being both a sexy super hero and a singing farm boy. That is, I watched a made-for-TV production of Oklahoma! starring Hugh Jackman on PBS that was from 1998.
I watch in Rockland and then Weymouth (where I am right now). Ali cia, as is custom, hosted the Oscar Party. This year we had ballots to guess the winners and Oscar Bingo. I got my bingo third. This included a scratch ticket and a little golden statue. Fun!
I'd have to say, this was my favorite Oscar Program of all time, so far. And Anwar was so cute! I've moved from Harry Potter to Anwar (Dev Patel, the main character of Slumdog Millionaire), and the entire male cast of Skins -- to be honest, when it comes to my inappropriate actor crushes. Regardless, I can't seem to get away from the British Lads.
