Oscar Shmoscar. Why do we watch these things?

I've tried and I've tried and I'm finally just going to admit it and move on --- I just don't like Jack Nicholson. I don't like his cheesy smile, his ridiculous hair, his incredible arrogance or even his (dare I say) one-dimensional acting chops. The dude acts like .... Jack Nicholson in every movie.

Also, is it just me or did all but one of these "Song of the Year" nominees truly, truly suck?

Oh thank goodness, the only decent song just won.

I DVR'd the Oscars and buzzed through it in about an hour. A much better way to see what was a fairly lackluster production. Jack Nicholson adds nothing to a show like that.

I just flipped back and forth last night. But I did see good old Jack. I said to Lance: "Know one of the things I hate about the Oscars? How they always seem to make Jack Nicholson their guest of honor." It's pretty sickening.

Robyn, THANK YOU for saying that. I really don' like Jack Nicholson either. The rest of the world thinks of him as the epitome of cool. I just see someone who needs to grow up. He's so creepy, too, with these girls who could be his daughters on his arm. Ewwwwww

I think Jack recently endorsed Hillary Clinton...one more reason for you to love him.

According to this blog, you are supposed to love the oscars.

i didn't know until about 1/2 an hourbefore they started that the oscars were going to be on. not really motivated to watch them this year. with antonio's arrival, watching movies just doesn't happen as often. no point in watching the oscars when i had no idea what the movies were.
