Clooney nails it, and other Oscar observations 

(Out of town since Wednesday... will blog on trip later).

Here are a few thoughts on the Oscars -- I actually watched them, even though I have yet to see any of the major nominated movies.

First off...What a comment by Clooney on Hollywood. Loved it.

In case you missed it:
And finally, I would say that, you know, we are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood every once in a while. I think it's probably a good thing. We're the ones who talk about AIDS when it was just being whispered, and we talked about civil rights when it wasn't really popular. And we, you know, we bring up subjects. This Academy, this group of people gave Hattie McDaniel an Oscar in 1939 when blacks were still sitting in the backs of theaters. I'm proud to be a part of this Academy, proud to be part of this community, and proud to be out of touch.
