Kristin Chenoweth hosted this and was way too silly. Her jokes fell flat most of the time. I like her and have enjoyed her performances and personality, but not tonight. I was glad Sandra Bullock and Jeff Bridges won. Mo'Nique has received nothing but high praise for her performance in Precious, based on the novel by Sapphire (what an agent Sapphire must have!). I haven't seen it yet but will. Have any of you seen Inglourious Basterds? I like some of Tarantino's movies and not others but will see this one. I hope Kathryn Bigelow wins the Oscar - first woman director to do so if she wins.

Gosh, I have a lot to see since the only one with nominations I've seen is The Blind Side! Sandra Bullock was funny when she said, "Hey, critics! Bet you didn't see this coming! Neither did I!"

I like Robert Downey in Sherlock Holmes - I am a huge fan. Also give me Alec Baldwin anyday - he is fine!

I agree!

I saw Inglourious Basterds--very good, funny, but definitely a Tarantino movie...

I'd like to see Lee Daniels win Best Director for Precious.
First African-American to win--plus he's also gay, so that would be a double whammy!

That would be great, Bob. Maybe the awards will be divided between the two of them.
