Thank god. Or Thank Oscar! Or whatever. But congratulations Martin Scorsese. It was great to see you not just finally win what you have so long deserved, but to receive your award from your compatriots. Congratulations The Departed. Congratulations Pan's Labyrinth for at least some of the recognition you deserved.
Congratulations Babel for still being the most overrated film of the year, but not as overrated as I thought you were going to be.
And a wag of the finger to Laura Ziskin: lots of good ideas but still crappy editing. This show should not have been three hours and forty-five minutes long. But more on that tomorrow (I hope).
