Starting with the actresses in attendance & stretching to the viewers watching at home & tweeting along, there was a resounding call for a change in the way women are treated in Hollywood. It was a night designed around men, but it was all about women.

I really like her. I thought the movie she won for was, eh, but she was great in it. In everything really, though she is stuck in these sort of supernatural roles, she does them well. And while I only heard a bit of her speech, I liked that too, it was the only thing Oscar I did hear. I read something funny, somewhere this weekend, about how someone wondered that they didn't all have tendonitis from patting themselves on the back so often. Imagine if every industry did that? Of course, the rest of would have to do it in blue jeans and tee shirts and probably no one would film us. But I'd pay more attention, maybe, awards shows sort of turn my stomach, a privilege I've earned after a freaking lifetimes worth of them many in my formative years when I did not control the channel changer or anything else. I came out of that hopelessly scarred and determined to never watch one again. So far I'm doing pretty good, reading is better entertainment anyway. As is watching paint dry. Sorry to all of you who love them. :^)

Noted. Three cheers for Patricia Arquette! And a giant round of applause for the documentary win by Laura Poitras and Citizenfour.

Agreed Lois! Citizenfour will be on HBO tonight at 6pm... I have Direct TV so it's on channel 501. Can't wait to see it!
Also read Glenn Greenwald's book No Where To Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the US Surveillance State. A scary, sobering must read.

I think were a lot more industries and corporations and nations lead by women, it would change the entire landscape of humanity.

The way women are treated in Hollywood? America, I would have thought! Kudos to Patricia.
