TV Scoop reviews the Oscars

UPDATE – Added link to Slash’s appearance on The Daily Show on YouTube. Yum. Sex n’ satire n’ rock n’ effin roll.

TV Scoop continue their valuable service of watching award shows so we don’t have to, with their review of this year’s Oscars (especially useful since it involves staying up all night and watching Sky One). In this post Jane shares with us the only bits that matter – what the lovely Mr Jon Stewart said. Here are just a couple:

On George Clooney, winner of Best Supporting Actor for Syriana: “Very proud of him. that’s the kind of thing that could really get a fella laid.”

On Three 6 Mafia, who’d just accepted the Best Song gong (“Thank you Jesus… George Clooney my favourite man in the show we love him”): “You know what? I think it just got a little easier out here for a pimp.

“How come they’re the most excited people here tonight? That’s how you accept an Oscar. I think if there’s one way of reaching out to the people here tonight about the difficulties of being a pimp, it’s through the medium of interpretive dance.”

Sounds like he did a decent job with the show, opening with:

“Tonight is the night we celebrate excellence in film, with me, the fourth male lead in Death to Smoochy. Rent it.”
