movies, oscars

(no subject)

I've seen a lot of stupid, pointless things in my life as an award show watcher, but the live performance of the theme to Star Trek during the Emmy awards last night may very well have been the stupidest and most pointless. And that includes the time the cast of Lord of the Dance performed an Irish dance routine in tribute to the art of film editing at the Oscars a few years ago.
