My Oscar Commentary 2007

8:43 (so much for the commentary...) Baby wakes up crying. I (immediately) dose him with Infant Tylenol and snuggle with him.

8:55 I see the New Yorker meatheads get kicked off Amazing Race and pass Baby to Hubby.

8:56 Will Farrell has a legit afro.

8:57 I've somehow managed to polish off a 1/2 bag of Smartfood popcorn.

8:59 The best girl singer got kicked off Grease??

9:02 Cate Blanchett in her fancy glittery dress is chewing gum!

9:04 Jack is BALD!! (yet still wearing his signature shades.)

9:09 Hubby tries to put Baby back to bed. He's not having any part of it.

9:11 Baby is screaming. He obviously doesn't realize it's Oscar night.

9:14 I turn off monitor in living room and trudge upstairs but Hubby's "got it under control" (his words).

9:15 I can't get over how much my new brother-in-law looks like Steve Carell.

9:16 Baby is STILL screaming upstairs....

9:31 Oooh.. a Beauty and the Geek recap is on! (as now I'm rocking much for Hubby being "in control".)

9:36 Tag team--Baby back to Hubby. And I can pee now...because Al Gore is on.

9:43 I would KILL for Cameron Diaz's cheekbones.

9:59 The Ellen Bjorn--hilarious!

10:05 Baby is still awake, so I can't possibly focus on Tom Cruise.

10:12 Hubby calls it quits and goes to bed. Baby is still awake... and crying (back in his crib). Dammit.

10:14 Wow--Gwyneth's hair is long. Is Baby finally asleep? (fingers crossed.) My (miniscule) bottle of wine is kicked. I'm now drinking water.

10:20 Not a fan of Naomi Watts' yellow and black gown.

10:22 (Hopefully) Baby is asleep. Tomorrow is gonna be a BIG NAP DAY for him (whether he likes it or not.)

10:24 Is it possible to OD on Smartfood (popcorn) and Starburst (jellybeans) and wine? I'm feeling a little queasy.

10:29 Clive Owen is SEXY.

10:33 What happened to George Clooney's gray hair?

10:35 J. Hud wins!

10:39 I'm sitting here shivering because Hubby turns down the heat before HE goes to bed (because I always forget to turn it down).

10:43 Is this really on until 11:30? Ugh.

10:44 Because I was wondering where Jerry Seinfeld was...Good monologue Jerry! (sidenote: I've bought tickets on two separate occasions as presents for other family members to see him in Boston. Yet have I? Nope.)

10:48 You go (chunky) Al Gore! He's definitely wearing makeup.

10:52 Boring tribute (a/k/a pee break).

10:56 I'm envious of Celine Dion's boobs in that dress.

11:06 Penelope Cruz is flawless.

11:07 What the hell is Pan's Labyrinth? I may be showing my ignorance here, but I've never heard of it before tonight.

11:08 Ok, Babel just won an award. So where's the money shot of Brad Pitt?

11:14 Yay! Little Miss Sunshine wins! I just watched it last night (doing my Oscar homework, of course). Great flick. Great speech.

11:30 I'm fading. I have nothing (even remotely) witty to say.

11:35 Will Smith is presenting. Random fact: Eldest can sing the lyrics to the opening song for Fresh Prince of Bel Air. It's on at 6pm on the Noggin channel here. Holy flashback for me. I had a roommate in college who watched the Fresh Prince everyday...and now my 5 year old can sing it?

11:39 Ok, wasn't this supposed to be over at 11:30?

11:40 Kate Winslet, let's get this show on the road! Enough already.

11:44 Wow--where's Jodie Foster been all these years? Ugh....not another tribute (to the dead this time).

11:46 I can't believe I'm still awake (and typing this).

11:54 Helen Mirren wins. Predictable. But wow, even her boobs look good. I think I have boob envy.

12:01 You go Reese! She looks fab. Forest Whitaker wins. Predictable. Why am I staying awake for this again? GREAT heartfelt speech by Mr. Whitaker.

12:07 (fingers crossed for Scorsese)...and the winner is...Scorsese! Standing O. Sweet black bushy caterpillar eyebrows and gray hair, Martin. I wonder what color HIS carpet is?? Hey, it's late and I'm frickin' tired.

12:13 Finally! The last award for Best Picture...The Departed.

Zzzzzzzzzzz. I'm off (to bed).
