Oh no. Krista Smith's Ambien might have taken hold of the broadcast. Tom Hanks is presenting the art-direction and cinematography Oscars while the music pit plays below him. It's like they don't want him to finish. Are we so pressed for time that presenters will now be cut short, too? The Oscar goes to "Alice and Wonderland," which might make perfect sense except, as a moviegoer through those glasses, I could see their work to appreciate it. And Wally Pfister rightly wins for "Inception," which means Roger Deakins, who shot "True Grit," goes Oscar-less again. I'm nervous that already kind of rooting for the end. I need a musical number. Or a blue Ben Stiller.
