  1. More classic Claree quotes: When Anelle asked Claree what breed Ouiser's dog was, Claree said, "If it had hair, it'd be a St. Bernard." "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize." Claree, about the Mayor's wife's accident: "She got hit with a baseball. It was fabulous." Truvy: "Was she hurt?" Claree: "I doubt it. She got hit in the head." Claree, quoting the Marmoullian son's gaydar: "He said, 'All gay men have track lighting, and all gay men are named Mark, Rick or Steve.'" RIP, Ms. Dukakis.
  2. In tribute to the late, great Olympia Dukakis, some of her funniest moments were in Steel Magnolias and Moonstruck, the latter of which she won an Oscar for. From Steel Magnolias, the scene when at the funeral for Shelby (M'Lynn and Drum's daughter), Claree (Dukakis' character) offered a devastated M'Lynn the chance to slap their grouchy neighbor Ouiser -which virtually everyone in town wanted to do for decades-to make M'Lynn feel better, which it did. Everytime I see that scene, it always makes me laugh. From Moonstruck, one of the funniest scenes was when she put her daughter Loret
  3. Another great Leia moment was when she killed a stormtrooper just moments after being shot by another-or was it the same one? All stormtroopers look alike to me. Three more "Hell, Yeah!" moments come courtesy of the late, great Olympia Dukakis. The first was from Steel Magnolias, when Claree told M'Lynn and Drum's grandson Jack Jr. a fairy tale about an evil witch named Ouiser, after Claree's grouchy neighbor, who'd offended practically everyone in town for some reason or another for decades. After Claree finished the story, Ouiser surprised Jack Jr.-who surprised her back by smacking he
  4. Yay for H.E.R.! Love the movie, love the song and the lewk is Purple Rain realness. Glenn Close did Da Butt? My life is complete!
  5. Yay for Trent, Atticus and Jon Baptiste! I'm sure Stephen Colbert's thrilled for Jon.
  6. Yay, Yuh-Jung! She's been adorable all awards season long, before and after she hit on Brad Pitt, not that I blame her, re the latter. To quote Steve Winwood, "When you see a chance, take it."
  7. And the subject matter of the winner just happens to be about police brutality, which offends me much more than movies about it. If more "good" cops did something about the bad ones, then these movies probably wouldn't exist in the first place, so let's just agree to disagree. Moving on, I'm glad that Soul won Best Animated Feature. It's the first Jamie Foxx movie I've liked in years. Marlee Marlin is more fabulous than ever.
  8. The Derek Chauvins who come way too close to getting away with murder are offensive. On-topic, the speech from the winners for Whatever Happens I Love You were fabulous.
  9. "The police will kill 3 people" is arguably the quote of the night.
