81st Oscars: Slumdog kicks ass...Rags to Rupees Story of the Year.

Well, the 81st Oscars went down last night and I have to come out and say that if you did not catch them, you didn't miss too much excitement. While they looked pretty and had some modern updates that weren't too shabby, there was still just an overall boring element to the show. So let me throw down a quick run of what I saw.

The Oscars:

Hugh Jackman did more acting in the first 5 minutes of the show then he has in all of the X-Men films combined, plus the wolverine prequel and the inevitable sequel to that.

Will Smith actually dropped the line, "Boom! goes the dynamite."

The Oscars love Beyonce more than Jay-Z ever could and will.

Jennifer Aniston looked beautiful and terribly awkward at the same time. Basically, she did not want to be there. It might have had something to do Brangelina sitting front row center.

Tilda Swinton scares the shit out of me and I doubt she is human. I'd bet that she actually might be the White Witch from Narnia.

Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz, Amy Adams and Natalie Portman looked fucking gorgeous.

I thought Ben Stiller was being kind of shitty making fun of Joaquin Phoenix, but then he started wandering around looking at the monitors and I laughed.

The Ledger Family's acceptance speech brought tears to 94% of those in attendance, Mickey Rourke would have cried, but he wouldn't even have been able to tell you what day it was.

Slumdog Millionaire cleaned house, grabbing 8 Oscars.

Kate Winslet's dad stole the show by dropping one hell of a whistle.

"You Commie, homo loving, sons of guns," Yes, that is how Sean Penn opened his acceptance speech.

Where the fuck was Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood? The times are changing my friends...

Down below, you will find a short recap of the awards, enjoy...
