1.  Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (is that how it’s spelled?) just performed on the Oscars.  “Once” deserves much more recognition but I am happy they are nominated for the song “Falling Slowly” and I hope people fell in love with the song enough to check out the movie!

2.  Kevin Kline is in “Definitely, Maybe” and I adore him.  I looked him up on IMDB today to see how old he is (he looks oooold in the movie) and he was born in 1947 so I guess that makes sense.  The exciting news is that…. drumroll please…. they are apparently re-making Cyrano deBergerac and he is cast as Cyrano!!!  Cyrano is such an amazing story and Kevin Kline can DEFINITELY pull off playing a frenchman (hello, “french kiss!”).  WOW, I can’t wait to see that!  I love love love the Gerard Depardieu “Cyrano” but I can’t wait to see Kevin Kline!

3.  I watched Annie Hall today and liked it a lot.  I loved the last line:   I thought of that old joke, y’know, the, this… this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, “Doc, uh, my brother’s crazy; he thinks he’s a chicken.” And, uh, the doctor says, “Well, why don’t you turn him in?” The guy says, “I would, but I need the eggs.” Well, I guess that’s pretty much now how I feel about relationships; y’know, they’re totally irrational, and crazy, and absurd, and… but, uh, I guess we keep goin’ through it because, uh, most of us… need the eggs.

4.  Renee Zellweger just walked on stage and she is one of my FAVORITE actresses.  Love her all the time.

5.  I have a crush on James McAvoy now.  I had a crush on him as Mr. Tumnus but he was adorable in Penelope and seeing him tonight on the Oscars and hearing his little Scottish accent sealed the deal.

6.  There are some great movies coming out!  I want to see Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day (is that what it’s called?).  It looks really cute and kitschy in a way.  Also cute and kitschy is Leatherheads.  George Clooney AND John Krasinski AND Renee Zellweger in a movie?  Yes, please!!!!  That cast is gives The Talented Mr. Ripley cast a run for its money.  🙂   (Jude Law, Matt Damon, and Gwyneth Paltrow.)

7.  OOOH first glimpse of Nicole Kidman.  She is my other favorite actress.  She is beautiful but that necklace is a little (a LOT) too much.  She is basically flawless though.

8.  WHOA, Jon McLaughlin on the Oscars.  He used to open for Dave Barnes.  CRAZY, huh????
