Oscar 78

The Oscars seemed a bit dull last night. Jon Stewart never really seemed to click with the audience but there were plenty of moments to make the show worthwhile.

The Western movie mash-up was one of the highlights of the evening. A number of Western movie clips were cleverly edited together with a Brokeback theme. With all the of the re-edited movie trailers circulating the web, I thought this was brilliant.

The most exciting part of the night occurred when Three 6 Mafia won an Oscar for Best Song In A Film — It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp. The acceptance speech was hilarious and part of it was bleeped out. The audience finally came alive and Stewart got a good laugh when he said “I think it just got a little easier out here for a pimp.”

After winning the Oscar, Jordan “Juicy J” Houston of Three 6 Mafia had this to say,

I just couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t stand still. I had to run somewhere. I started to run somewhere. People thought the police was probably chasing me somewhere.

My favourite line of the night came from Jon Stewart when he made the following observation.

For anyone keeping record, Martin Scorsese, zero Oscars. For Three 6 Mafia, one.
