12. Clooney was great
Here's a funny take on last night.
http://film.guardian.co.uk/oscars2006/story/0,,1724502,...

I'm surprised they missed John Stewart's very subtle but powerful line when he asked the audience a superb rhetorical question - if they all pulled down the large Oscar statue, would it make the Academy more democratic. It was very well received.

17. I loved that-Clooney on burning witches
I believe in all the qualities of being a liberal. I keep going back to all the great social events in our country's history, starting with the Salem witch trials, where the conservative view was that they're witches and should be burned at the stake, and the liberal view was there's no such thing as witches. Women wanted to vote, and liberals thought that would be okay. Blacks wanted to sit in the front of the bus--we didn't see anything wrong with that. We thought Vietnam was wrong. We thought Nixon trying to steal an election was a mistake. Over the years, over the history of our country, liberals have stood on many of the right sides of the issues.
