Oscar Haikus!

My excitement over this year’s Oscars can only be expressed in some nice 5-7-5 meter!

Anglo-tastic night
One brown nominee but
No win for Bardem


More like Vicky, Christina, Barce-sexy!

Nothing did my Oreo heart more good to see that on this night when we award the best of the best of the image makers, they didn’t clutter up the stage or screw with the lighting requirements by throwing a bunch of of colors into the mix.

Why practice timing
If host jokes don’t land: Plan B
Blue latex dress. Go!

Honestly, I’m torn. It was kind of cool. And kind of scary.

Colin, Hooper, Leigh
Hel’na, more! Brit invasion!
So Anglo! I approve!

So many British nominees/winners! Is this their plan to take back the colonies? Fine by me. I love Duffle Coats!

Autotune the news
Made Oscar debut tonight
Fine, but why Twilight??

I’m assuming it was ATTN that did the awkwardly placed quasi-musical montage. I’m also assuming the live audience was as confused as we were by the not-so-smooth segue and completely random choice of films autotuned.

When hosting, relax
If meditation fails you,
Pot seems to work well.

James Franco was high as a kite, right??

What did you think of the Oscars? Let us know in the comments!!


  1. I was onstage in a play during the live broadcast so I looked at it on my DVR when I got home. Seemed very boring and utterly predictable, but at high speed it was mercifully short.

    You are probably right. Franco seemed high. Or completely apathetic.

    Impressive haikus. 17 syllables are tough to do.

  2. I was disappointed in Franco–although I must say that he looked beautiful in the pink Marilyn Monroe gown and blonde wig:-) I loved Anne’s dresses and was really rooting for “Black Swan” although hubby was ecstatic about “The King’s Speech.” He is still ever the quintessential Brit, so anything with Colin Firth, Dame Judi Dench, Kate Winslett, or Geoffrey Rush, makes him nostalgic and teary-eyed for his homeland.
