Argo should and will win best picture. Lincoln should have been better, Daniel Day Lewis' brilliant performance was the only thing rising the film from mediocrity. I thought Life of Pi was fantastic, but the only thing it might win is visual effects. I don't think last year was a great year for film, but there are still a few worth noting.

McFarlane himself is pretty funny. You have to realize that he considers himself a Trey Parker/Matt Stone type; nothing is off limits. Unlike Parker and Stone, McFarlane has no idea what subtlety is. Family Guy and it's ilk are pretty awful, but McFarlane is good fun.

McFarlane hit some good notes, but there were quite a few moments during the night where I was just cringing at some of his jokes (lol domestic violence!, lol gaaaaaaaaaaaay).

If you thought those were bad, read some of the ones they didn't use from one of the writers.


In order to learn how to land a plane like that, Denzel spent hours in the cockpit training with some of the best pilots in Al Qaeda

And the Oscar for “Worst Oscar” goes to South African sprinter Blade Runner
