Land of the Dead video game
The night was an interesting one. Both Balgavy's and my work pools came down to the wire. Chris Larry had some amazing quips. Some of the highlights:
On the chances of that pimp song winning the Oscar - "Eminem already won. Oscar's rap hymen has been broken. I think it can win."
On Dolly Parton - "She could have played the lead in Transamerica."
During the montage for Original Score - "Geez, why don't they just do the awards in Latin?"
On Penelope Cruz - "She's so not hot, guys. Right? She's the kind of woman that women think is what we think is hot but so isn't."
On P.T. Anderson - "He sucks! Boogie Nights is like a Quentin Tarantino made for TV movie."
On what sucks more, Crash or Magnolia - "Magnolia! The raining frogs are the tipoff."
During a scene of Joaquin and Reese singing together - "The dead can't defend themselves."
When Crash took Best Picture - "Hollywood will always give itself a reacharound. This doesn't surprise me."
So Crash won. Oh well. Whatever. The Oscars are a joke anyway. I haven't even seen the movie. But for an interesting discourse on the subject, check out film critic Matt Zoller Seitz's blog.
When it was all said and done, we had two co-winners, Mitch and Mike.
The winners and the amazing host.
The night began to wind down.
But wait! Justin thought that he had also won! Jamie began the investigation.
While Jamie determined that Justin was wrong, I took the time to photograph some of Balgavy's amazing handiwork. Not only had he plastered the place with Variety ads, he had framed some nice postcards.
Just when we thought it was safe to call it a night, one of the two lawyers in attendance let Jamie know that maybe Justin had indeed won. You can't fool a lawyer.
Dave declared a three way for first! Jamie called for order.
The other lawyer, Anne, was called into service.
The mistake was corrected. Three winners! Two of them looked a little less happy than earlier in the evening.
