Out of the Blue

Most years I talk about the Oscars in advance of the Academy Awards®™© and fail to see the program itself. This year I failed to mention them (basically because I lost track of when they were somewhere along the way), but did get coerced by MrsBlue into watching the broadcast. Seems like we saw the appropriate picture when we checked out No Country for Old Men, but as always, will end up seeing whatever we see of the honorees after the fact (There Will Be Blood is the only other choice I'm particularly worked up over).
