I want to congratulate Slumdog, Sean Penn, Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz and the late Heath Ledger for providing the best of 2008. The show was excellent and the best in a few years...2008 was a very special year.

I didn't watch it either. Was there an Oscar for lifetime achievement or something like it?? If so, who got it?

His father, mother and sister said speeches and accepted the award for him. I was so glad it wasn't a director or producer or something.

Thanks. :) I agree, it's nicer that his family accepted than just someone from the business.

Hey Barb, his family accepted it on behalf of his daughter Matilda. Here is the "acceptance" speech:

Jerry Lewis got the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for doing work for the Muscular Dystrophy Association through telethons, print campaigns and other charity events. I think he deserved it and that goes along with all of the great film work he's done in my opinion. We should get The Nutty Professor some time.

I agree Red, he really deserved it.

This year's Oscars were the best in a long time...Hugh Jackman really got the show into a party mode. He opened the show with a musical number containing all of the best movies of 2008. Anne Hathaway did a part as Nixon...and she was two seats away from Frank Langella... How funny...I'm sure they did it that way on purpose. For the musicals of 2008, he did singing from previous musicals as well as last year's with Beyonce, Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron. The montages included action, comedy and actors that passed away last year. So many great people...Paul Newman...Ollie Johnson... It was a night to remember...I hope they have him again. The people that designed the stage did a wonderful job... It's a shame that there probably weren't as many people watching due to previous years lacking fun. If you find clips, I'm sure you'll be impressed.

I thought that piece was really well done, but I wondered why they didn't have Meryl instead of Beyonce. Is it because she's an "older" lady?? I hope not. I hope she was asked and decided she didn't want to do it.

I found a clip of the opening number, and laughed hysterically. Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUJ-7tCIHTU) it is. Just from that, I wish I would have watched now. I loved when Jackman hosted the Tony's - and this looked just as entertaining.

Here's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCjJ81WSNOM) the link to "The Musical is Back". It's about time. I love 'em! :D
