I couldn't stand not watching the Oscars. So, with the creative placement of the bunny ears on a chair, with the cable attaching the ears to the TV carefully draped over the corner of the TV, I managed to get fuzzy yet audible reception. No color. It allowed me to hear Jon Stewart's jokes and get the gist of who was on stage. I was thrilled for Diablo Cody and Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova for their awards. With the exception of best song and some of the technical sound awards, my predictions came up short. The 2 best things of the night was the presentation by Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill (of Superbad), and allowing Marketa Irglova to come back onto the stage after her time ran out during her speech. Classy.
