From what I understand River was a first-time dabbler in the drug/club scene. His death shocked everyone because this wasn't a longtime user.

Sadly, he had been using for quite some time.

All kinds of genders talk about Judy Garland! 

Its like she feels like she needs to add some kind of message in here to get those applause points!

“Winning an Oscar ages you.” Ha!!

I’ve been rewatching Doctor Who season 5, and I am still tripping over the fact that Olivia Coleman had a small role in one episode, and I didn’t recognize her until it was pointed out to me.

I think John Singleton was supposed to be last.  And he got bumped for Douglas.

If I was asked, I would have sworn that he did ?? Is the past changing or is my memory going bad ?? ( Most likely the 2nd one ! ha)

Philip Seymour Hoffman did for Capote.  Still makes me mad because Joaquin was so much better IMO than Reese.

What the makeup people did to Renee's eyes to look like Judy Garland was scary and creepy.

Whatever someone did to her lips now is even scarier.

He seems really messed up and not quite there. I wonder if he never was able to get his equanimity back after River's death. From what I understand River was a first-time dabbler in the drug/club scene. His death shocked everyone because this wasn't a longtime user.

My spec is that he knew he wanted to quote River but got more emotional than expected and started rambling before bringing it back.

I mean, this speech is possibly even more rambling than Joaquins, even if its less graphic. She sounds like a Miss American contestant trying to fit in as many random talking points as possible. 

"If I win Miss America, I hope to promote world peace...and literacy...and gender...and world peace...and not littering...and equality is good... gender...and literacy..."

I'm kind of nodding off here, but I heard her mentioning Scorsese, Fred Rogers, and Harriet Tubman in the same breath, which I found odd.  Hell, Fred probably would have thought he shouldn't be mentioned alongside Harriet (even though he was the best.)

Almost there!

I'm surprised Renee hasn't gotten music-shooed off yet. That was one rambling speech but in the typical fake Hollywood way, and not in the patented "Joaquin I'm sorry you couldn't be here with us tonight" way.

I just turned on the Oscars in time to see Renee Zellweger's acceptance speech, & it was so random & droned on & on so much it made me glad I didn't watch the rest of the show.

I've seen the argument that Renee has more pull than Glenn Close.  How??  I mean, Glenn's picture is in the dictionary under the word "overdue."  Renee Zellweger just took a self-imposed break from acting, and she's already got an Oscar.  I don't get that argument.

I think Renee Zellwinger lost her train of thought there...

Lost, or it derailed?

They’re standing up because they heard Grace and Frankie got renewed for a final season, right?

What pageant was it that Miss South Carolina turned into verbal LSD and kept saying “and such as”? This was just like that!

Found it, Miss Teen USA

I wasn't looking forward to this show, but with all the Parasite wins and Eminem I have to say I was amused if nothing else.  I'll be moving onto the Westminster Dog Show where the winners are just a little less predictable than the acting awards this year at the Oscars.

I've often wondered of Joaquin was on the spectrum in some way.
