Oscar Docs All Worth Watching!

A Blog Converged would like to thank the Academy...

The good news is Hollywood's epic live awards ran a respectable 3.5 hours (compared to previous epics). The bad news? The show just seemed longer and was...really boring. Anne Hathaway can at least sing and dance. And we counted eight costume changes in her ultimate "dress up" host gig.

But from the "seemed like a good idea in the writer's room" file, James Franco as co-host? Of the Oscars? Seriously? In Drag?  Ouch...

And when Billy Crystal walked out on stage how many of you had this thought, "Why isn't he hosting?"

We TiVo'd forward to the feature documentary category. The five nominees were:

Exit through the Gift Shop, by Banksy and Jaimie D'Cruz

Gasland, by Josh Fox and Trish Adlesic

Inside Job, by Charles Ferguson and Audrey Marrs (Winner!)

Restrepo, by Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger

Waste Land, by Lucy Walker and Angus Aynsley


Our picks? We couldn't decide between Gasland, Restrepo and Inside Job. Go see'um all!


A final Oscar note: one hilarious bit that slipped in under the radar ran on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live after most people went to bed. Their parody entitled, "The President's Speech," is well...next year's nominee for Best Parody Video in a Talk Show!
