Standing Ovation!

Watched the Oscars? NO?! well...you should have. it was one of THE MOST brilliant planning of an event i've ever seen! The stage, bringing back the past winners to introduce the nominees and announcing the winner, the performances, the band, and not forgetting the HOST! it was WELL DONE indeed.




I'm ever so proud that Slumdog Millionaire won 8 out of the 10 Oscars! BRILLIANT! not to say that i did not expect it, but they were up against very good movies. Even the performance that A R Rahman did alongside John Legendmerged very well together. ALSO, the perfomance by Hugh Jackman, Beyonce, Amanda Seyfried, Dominic Cooper, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens was SO ENTERTAINING! doing their rendition of the musicals of the past and present. Hugh can really sing!!! WOOOT :P
