Oscars ala Youtube

So there are mixed reviews for Jon Stewart’s performance at the Oscars last night. Instead of wading through the specially produced for International Audiences highlights (which nark me) I turned to Youtube.  You can see the Gay Cowboy montage here (who said there were never any gay cowboys in Hollywood!)

The opening sequence is viewable here. And George Clooney’s acceptance speech here.

"And finally, I would say that, you know, we are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood every once in a while. I think it's probably a good thing. We're the ones who talk about AIDS when it was just being whispered, and we talked about civil rights when it wasn't really popular. And we, you know, we bring up subjects. This Academy, this group of people gave Hattie McDaniel an Oscar in 1939 when blacks were still sitting in the backs of theaters. I'm proud to be a part of this Academy. Proud to be part of this community, and proud to be out of touch."George Clooney, at the Academy Awards
