First of all, I’d like a little credit for my sly, gratuitous reference to the Al Franken vehicle “Stuart Saves His Family.‿ Am I the only one who feels tenderly about that movie?
I love the idea of Jon Stewart hosting the Oscars, if only because he was miscast as a cad engaged to a former Hooters girl who foists his illegitimate child off on Adam Sandler in “Big Daddy‿ -- and it was a pretty convincing performance.
At least we know he won’t be sitting in judgment on anybody.
But I am worried that he’ll get all political on us. I’m even less informed about politics than I am about the nominated movies this year. Will someone please stand by to explain the jokes to me?
