Jane Fonda’s Oscar night
The stars are still talking about the Oscars so we’re still writing about it. I’ve just simultaneously learned two things – Jane Fonda has a blog, and she gives a lengthy, detailed look at her Oscar night in it.
A few items of note:
* Fonda loves a lady who is a “triple threat,” writing “I so admire the women who do it all: act brilliantly, sing, and dance…I’m thinking Charlize, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and, of course, Meryl (Mama (sic) Mia!).”
* She wasn’t as fond of host Seth MacFarlane and his Broadway tribute to Hollywood’s topless women. Fonda on “We Saw Your Boobs”: “What I really didn’t like was the song and dance number about seeing actresses boobs. I agree with someone who said, if they want to stoop to that, why not list all the penises we’ve seen? Better yet, remember that this is a telecast seen around the world watched by families with their children and to many this is neither appropriate or funny.”
* She loves the Oscars, writing “I can say this: I’ve been to more Oscars than I can count and it never gets boring. I am still thrilled to see all the amazing talents there, in flesh and blood.”
