10 sentences about last night’s Oscar Ceremony

Monday March 8th 2010


Monday has come and after three hours sleep, the 82nd Annual Academy Awards are but a faint memory. Here’s our (very) brief rundown of last night’s festivities:

1

RED CARPET
It was pretty banal.

2

MARTIN / BALDWIN
They weren’t terrible.

3

LONG
It seemed to go on LITERALLY FOREVER.

4

FUNNY
This was as close as anyone came to matching the brilliance of the Brendan Fraser clap.

5

SURPRISE
As rumoured, Michael Haneke was robbed by that Argentinean film that no-one’s seen.

6

TECHNICAL AWARDS
We didn’t pay attention.

7

THE COVERAGE ON SKY MOVIES
She was absolutely torturous.

8

AVATAR
It won as much as it deserved.

9

THE HURT LOCKER
It wasn’t the best film of the year but it wasn’t the worst either.

10

LONG
It really was.
