Ellen

Ellen

I’m not really an Academy Awards fan. Don’t much go in for the whole American sentiment structure of feeling/spectacle crap. But I found Ellen, despite myself, a completely charming host. Not only were her jokes consistently humorous, but her approach was to treat reigning luminaries like Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, or whomever like they were, well, special but ordinary, menacing the front row’s feet at one point with a vacuum cleaner. Ellen comes off as the kind of friend it would be really cool to drop in on for coffee and klatchkes 2 or 3 times a week.

Al Gore seemed to be everywhere, like a benign cumulous cloud hovering over the Hollywood hills. The man looks good. He was funny. Where the hell was that in 2000?

And Pizer’s Cambridge Companion? Still working on it.
