I don't have a lot to say tonight.
Before I forget, "Desperate Housewives" didn't air tonight.
I'm really bummed about Best Actress last night.
I wanted Michelle Williams to win. But if she had to lose, I told myself, Viola Davis has earned it too.
And I was even okay with Glenn Close because she was amazing playing that man.
I like Meryl Streep. I think she's really talented. And there are films she was just nominated for that I would give her the Oscar for.
But for that awful Margaret Thatcher. And she's doing another one of those voices.
As a general rule, when Meryl gets mannered, she goes stiff.
That was not a great performance.
Michelle just gets better each year so hopefully she'll win one shortly. Glenn will be seen as the one who should have won in all the books like Alternate Oscars. But Viola? I just don't see a lot of other parts that can get her a Best Actress.
Maybe they'll start writing them.
But Halle Berry is gorgeous and Hollywood didn't start writing parts for her.
Viola's an attractive woman but not gorgeous. She's also older than Halle. I just think the Oscar could have meant a lot to either Michelle or Viola and instead it was time to hand out Oscar Number Three to Meryl.
