I didn't watch the Oscars.
Yes, I was at the El Jefe palace in the boonies, without television reception. But I wouldn't have watched in any case. The newspapers and blogs sum it up adequately, if I decided I care enough about who got what (I usually don't). I had my books, papers, old man Mozart, a decent bottle of Merlot, a ginormous steak and the first season of Magnum P.I. All much preferable to an evening with a bunch of actors and hangers-on.
Besides, all the photos -- the best-dressed, worst-dressed, and un-dressed -- are readily available online. Also, the entertainment blogs will tell me who dissed whom; who's been busted for what; provide helpful rehab entry and early-release updates on all the usual suspects; and, give me the status of celebrity musical beds this week. I can easily catch up on what I need to know (and see) without actually having to undergo hours of seeing Hollywood preen.
