Last year Brokeback Mountain looked like a mortal lock for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.  Then a little film called Crash won at the Screen Actor Awards and a different future began to unfold.  This year’s Screen Actors Awards included the obvious – Forest Whitaker (Best Actor for Last King of Scotland), the expected – Helen Mirren (Best Actress for both The Queen and Elizabeth I), the disappointing – Jennifer Hudson (Supporting Female Actor for Dreamgirls), and a Lifetime Achievement Award for Julie Andrews.  The big surprise was the final award of the night, Best Ensemble Cast in a Motion Picture, which was given to the delightful Little Miss SunshineCheck out the full list of winners at the official site.

    Ugh. Why hasn’t anyone else realized that Grey’s Anatomy=”Desperate HouseScrubs”?

    There’s an ongoing war between myself (Scrubs fan) and my roomate (Desperate HouseScrubs fan). It is nice to watch a recorded episode of Desperate HouseScrubs, and point out that the real Scrubs tackled the same issue two seasons ago. Seriously, they just switched the genders around.

    Other than that, I can agree whole-heartedly with the award given to Little Miss Sunshine. That movie had me cry-laughing at the end, and I can’t remember that ever happening before.

    Since Arrested Development went off the air, I have no desire to watch network television at all.  It’d be like going to McDonald’s after having the best steak in the world.

    Trust me, with the exception of NBC’s Thursday Night line-up, and Fox’s Sunday Night Line-up, I completely share your aversion to Network TV. Just too much of the same thing, over and over.

    I can’t stand laugh-tracks, so most sitcoms are completely lost on me. Canned one-liners are relics, and if you have to let me know when I should laugh, your show wasn’t funny to begin with.

    My distaste for ‘reality’ TV (which comprises the rest of Network Television) has already been made clear.
