Highlight Story

Such a fuss about waking up at the crack of dawn today to watch the Oscars on TV. All for people getting a 34 cm tall, 3.85 kg statuette of a naked man nicknamed Oscar and making speeches until the orchestra drives them out of the stage.

Well, it is grand. The ceremony is a tad long, but it’s quite a razmatazz. Better than the 2009 Bhatinda Entertainment Night we attended last month, no?

Hmm. Yes, although that A.R. Rahman-lookalike that evening singing...
You mean that wasn’t A.R. Rahman at Bhatinda?

Um, no. His stage name was A.R. Rahman and he was singing songs from Om Shanti Om.
Anyway, I thought that the Oscars were a bit incomplete without Karan Johar attending. He’s such a smooth moron that nobody says a word against that I expected Hugh Jackman, using Slumdog Millionaire and Mumbai as an entry point, to take a crack at Karan.

So are you excited about next year’s Oscars too?
Well, with the elections over in April-May, life will be pretty much empty after that. So yes, posh 2009 Oscar Awards eye-candy will come handy. Now can we go back to our DVD of Titanic, my favourite Oscar movie. Didn’t it win at the Cannes Film Festival too?

Do say: You think it’s the right time for Rakhi Sawant to cross over to Hollywood as a Best Supported Costume nomination?
Don’t say: What are we going to do now with the jingbang about Slumdog Millionaire over.
