I liked MacFarlane, but I'm a fan of his off-color, semi-juvenile humor, so there you go. (On a related note, this morning on the radio I heard a funny song called "We Saw Your Junk," about male actors who've appeared nude in movies. I think it was from the Chelsea Handler TV show.) Daniel Day-Lewis' acceptance speech was one of the best I've ever seen. Just brilliant. Brief and hilarious! Bassey and Babs were nice surprises. On a more serious note, I recommend that you all google "open letter to Ang Lee." I didn't know what was going on with the VFX people until today, and I find it rather disturbing. The studio that won the Oscar is currently going through bankruptcy, and they're not the only one. They were about to mention it when the producers cut off their mic. Here in West Palm Beach, there was recently a big scandal when Digital Domain went under after getting a lot of local government support to open a studio and an educational facility.
