MO’NIQUE: Her speech seemed earnest and passionate and she clinched the Oscar with it by proving that she DOES care and IS grateful.
CHLOE SEVIGNY: Even after someone stepped on her dress, she carried on and was cute and real and even thanked someone who matters to her rather than just read a litany of boring names.
DREW BARRYMORE: Sarah Jessica
does this kind of breathless, long winded “I’m a ditz and I didn’t
expect to win” speech much better. Focus!
CHRISTOPH WALTZ: He used a lot of different, interesting words but they didn’t add up to anything cohesive. PLEASE focus!
JEFF BRIDGES: A great guy, but Mickey Rourke does this kind of rambling, real, woozy liftetime achievement thing much better.
REITMAN and JAMES CAMERON: tied for oozy fake humility. I loved when
Cameron said everyone in the room should congratulate themselves for
being in this industry, and Jessica Lange spit!
