Oscar Follow-Up

I don't have much to offer about the Oscars, other than to mention I still have no interest whatsoever in seeing Million Dollar Baby, but I feel the need to comment on the utter awfulness of the nominees for Best Song. I like the Counting Crows, but "Accidentally in Love" is a trifle at best. “Vois Sur Ton Chemin” and “Al Otro Lado Del Río” were just dull, and the song from Polar Express was… well, a Glen Ballard song from Polar Express. Andrew Lloyd Webber's, “Learn to be Lonely” is worse than most of his other crap

That these were nominated over Mick Jagger’s best song since “Start Me Up” is hard to fathom.

As for the rest: Chris Rock was funny, but seemed a little jittery; the Magic Johnson bit was mean-spirited but should have been more so; whomever thought up Dustin Hoffman and Barbara Streisand appearing as their Focker personalities should be fired and possible imprisoned.
