Oscar ramblings

Why is it that they always present the award for Best Actress before the award for Best Actor, as if Best Actress is less important? This bothers me every year. I wish they'd switch it up from year to year. I liked the way they presented the awards this year, with several past award winners directly addressing nominees.

I liked Sean Penn's acceptance speech. I was happy he included some pro-gay political points.

I was very happy Kate Winslet won Best Actress for "The Reader". It was a fantastic performance.

I wish they had ended the broadcast with a big Bollywood dance number like "Slumdog Millionaire," with all the Slumdog people on stage. That would have been really fun.

The awards for the ladies going first has always kinda bothered me too.

I did think it was interesting that Penn didn't thank his wife. I think that would annoy me if my partner didn't mention me at all.
