We were supposed to go to an Oscar party last night at the house of some friends, but Toby wasn’t feeling too good and we didn’t want to share a cranky little person with a bunch of other people. But we watched a fair bit of it at home, and some of it was kind of fun.
Here is a link to a roundup of what happened, including Michael Moore’s slightly rash but also brave acceptance speech:
“I’ve invited my fellow nominees on the stage with us, and they are here in solidarity with me because we like nonfiction. We like nonfiction and we live in fictitious times. We live in a time when we have fictitious election results that elect a fictitious president. We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons, whether it’s the fictition (sic) of duct tape or the fictition (sic) of orange alerts, we are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush! Shame on you!”
