Oscars, cont.


Not enough can be said about the excellence of Brody's speech; classy is right. It started by shocking Halle Barry with a dip and a kiss on the mouth, gained momentum when he ordered, ORDERED, Gil Cates and his henchmen to let him talk beyond his alotted time, and ended with a tearful, respectful call for peace. Amazing.

As for Moore, again, Jesse got it right in pointing out it was more about Bush than about war. I would have cheered a brief statement about Iraq, but instead Moore fixates on the 2000 election? He's grinding an axe, that's all.

Brody's speech was the appropriate one with a war already on: personal, regretful, and calling for a quick resolution.
