Oscars. I didn't watch them, of course. Although if I'd known how they would turn out, I would have.

I was thrilled that Forest Whitaker and Helen Mirren won. It seems to me that merit was winning this time around. Amazing.

For the big prize, I'm not a huge Scorsese fan. His movies are not my style. However, he was long overdue.

And what made me the happiest - giddy with glee - was also someone who was long overdue for recognition of a lifetime of superb acting. Small roles or big, he's brought skill and humanity, depth and humility, to all of them. I speak, of course, of the amazing, wonderful Alan Arkin. Congratulations, Alan!!!
