Academy Awards

Missed the first hour or so, but rest sorta blah. Some better moments: a cute one for Man On Wire (e.g., a coin trick), touching (Heath Ledger's family, makeup), nice (documentary short feature) and a real surprise -- Sean Penn winning. Good speech. The intro of the best actors and actresses was a bit much, if sorta touching. The host did not do much. Still don't want to see Slumdog. The Joaquin Phoenix bit worked well. And, now with previews!
