So the the guy who accepted the oscar for Tsotsi (Director Gavin Hood?) for the best foreign language film was very interesting. He starts by saying ‘I have a speech written in my pocket but the TelePrompTer tells me I only have 38 seconds so please go to tsotsi.com for a list of everyone I need to thank.’
He then goes on to that the two stars and asks them to stand up and asks the cameras to point at them. Then says “10 seconds” and thanks a few more people. And wraps it up…
It was just a different speech than usual and educational for me as well (to how things work up there). And the site was very slow after he gave the web address.
I usually don’t watch the award shows but I was just organizing some stuff and it wasn’t too distracting. And I like the montages, especially the one with all the quotes.
I also got up to watch because I could tell something happened with Jennifer Garner when she came out (TGFT) and she did an interesting slip/shuffle/almost fall.
