So Jennifer Hudson arrives to present the song Oscar to Randy Newman, the same Jennifer Hudson who's made about three movies since she won her Oscar five years ago. I don't think that's a problem her new figure can solve. How many has Halle Berry made? I guess we can ponder that later when Berry pays tribute to Lena Horne. Speaking of depressing news: Celine Dion is singing "Smile" over the necrology. Oh, wait, here's La Berry. Her praise is brief and nice, but it raises a lot questions about how far black people have really come at the movies. The whole thing ends with Horne's great line: "It's not the load that breaks you down. It's the way you carry it." I would say the movies are doing a pitiful job of carrying.
