Two days later, what remains of the Oscars? The endlessness of the broadcast. The discovery of Lady Gaga’s pipes, Chris now Googling to find her college performances, back when she was still called Stefani. John Legend and Common. How cozy it was in the den, cats and slippers and cleared plates. Disappointment for Richard Linklater. Disappointment for Michael Keaton. Another eye roll. Another stunning dress. Another canned insistence on the importance of Hollywood. Chris watching it beside me, because he’s such a good sport.
