And the Oscar goes to…~snores~

The Academy Awards were held last night and boy what a night it was to…fall asleep in front of the couch until Jean Dujardin yelled loud enough to woke you up.

Yeah, it was a snooze fest. The movies this year weren’t terribly good and the only surprise of the evening was that Meryl Streep won Best Actress. It’s a little like Somalia winning “Worst Spring Break Destination”: it may not always win (better cancel those reservations at Senor Frogs in Homs, Syria), but it’s always in the running!

I was also quite impressed with the number of creepily buff lady arms on display, especially by Angelina Jolie. Her anorexia and hours spent lifting/stealing 3rd world children made her look a little bit like skeletor.

Still, this was a very good year at the Oscars for the European Union. What with all the Oscars for France and The Artist, Sandra Bullock speaking German and some Italian broad winning an award for something-or-other, it was nice to Europe get a break for once. Plus they can always sell off their new Oscar statutes to cover the Greek bailout package?

So yeah, the Oscars were pretty dull. Couple that with the Republican primary race and suddenly the last year before the apocalypse seems so booooring.
