I have to go with Lena Dunham for worst. I’m sure she’s a nice gal and all, but this is show is beamed out to kajillions of people, and she could have at least tried to stand up straight. And maybe she should have practiced walking in heels a bit ahead of time. Ugh, I am saying only negative things today.

Well put. You hit on one of the main things that bothered me about it — the double message that she is a super-powerful, successful star, and also that everyone should leave her the hell alone. And also understand her deeply. Everything about it just screamed out-of-touch privilege. And the lack of humility bothered me, too.

Yes. When the camera was cutting to people in the room who had been moved to tears and were watching in rapt concentration, I thought, “Are these people watching the same thing I am?” It was surreal. Maybe it came across differently to the people who know her personally. I don’t know. All I know is that I was mystified.

I am genuinely surprised by all the major media outlets saying how moving Jodie Foster’s speech was. I watched it with mounting horror as the speech moved firmly into the realm of meandering self-indulgence and self-aggrandizement, and showed no sign of slowing down. I think my face was making the same expression that Mel Gibson’s was making, and I hope that is the last time I ever have to compare myself to him. Yes, she had some very good points to make, but she could have made them in a way that didn’t make so many people feel sweaty and cringing. To me it seemed like she had a captive audience and she was not gonna give up that stage for anything.

OK, but I’m not sharing a minutes plan with her.

I really wonder how much longer this is going to go on.

Oh, that little giggle fro Michelle Dockery was so endearing.

They are bringing up latent rage in me.

I usually like Target ads, but I have kind of had it with these supermodels in white.

Surprisingly, I find this less annoying than Anne Hathaway’s speech.

You should definitely try it. What’s the worst that can happen? This is actually not a legal question, but a philosophical one. There’s no potential loss, but there is potential gain. And you might get some amazing people-watching in. I drive by my county courthouse every day on my way to work, and hoo boy, there are some fascinating-looking folks going in there.

I think it entails watching Bob Ross daily at 6:30 a.m., to not only get excellent art advice but also to start out the day with a generous dose of Zen calm.

That’s so weird — my hand was twitching earlier this week, too. Maybe the government is testing out some new neurochemical on us.

I’ve seen all the episodes, like, 7 times each but I just started watching them all this week from Season 1 (Christopher Eccleston Season 1, I mean) because it’s the 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF DOCTOR WHO THIS YEAR! You guys, this only happens once in our lifetime. The Royal Mail is even doing a special set of stamps to commemorate the occasion: http://bbc.in/13kFjjP
