I watched the Academy Awards for awhile last night, mostly because I like train wrecks and the Oscars are always good for one or two of those. The biggest one that I saw before I gave up and went to bed was when 94 year-old Kirk Douglas took the stage.
Honestly, I could barely watch it was so horrible. Its bad enough that he has trouble speaking but to have him looking that bad and being nearly incomprehensible while leering and letching at Anne Hathaway was really embarrassing. Ugh.
I was also following the hashtag “#Oscars” on Twitter and my favorite tweet of the night last night was the one that came right after Trent from Nine Inch Nails got the award for Best Score for The Social Network:
I WANT TO THANK YOU LIKE AN ANIMAL. #reznor #oscars
Then, of course, when Oprah came out, this practically tweeted itself:
“YOU get an Oscar!
EVERYBODY gets an Oscar!” #oscars
I’m just sayin’…
