Whitest. Oscars. Ever.

I know, someone should put that construction to bed for good, but I mean JESUS. The schoolkid giggling over a hip-hop song? "Wenches" instead of "Bitches"? Reese? (I mean, I like her, but come on....) And Crash? Fucking CRASH???!!!! Never was a whiter movie made in all of creation.

Sorry. I know I'm not an expert commentator on the pop culture landscape, but for fuck's sake.... Poor Jon. I fear he shall never recover.

On the upside, my boy David looked good. Excruciatingly uncomfortable, but good.

I agree, David did look uncomfortable. I suggested to my husband that perhaps a 3 Layer Pecan Spice Cake would set him at his ease.

I agree. Crash is not the racially sensitive evocative movie that Ebert was bribed to want everyone to think it was. It's really a racist piece of filth, trite and meaningless, and did not deserve anything but all of America's wholehearted contempt.
