Departed evening of bloated, boring Hollywood babble

by Tim Goodman, check it out:

His view of the Oscars, good ones:

-- Robert Downey Jr. Love that guy. More self-effacing drug jokes make even the driest of affairs seem more pleasant.

-- Let's get this thing worked out for when four people -- say, special-effects guys -- come onstage: History tells us, time and time again, that only two of you will be able to thank anyone; the other two will get cut off, rudely. And if the first guy stumbles over his words, the camera will cut away to Beyonci.

-- Michael Arndt's acceptance speech for "Little Miss Sunshine" was short, sweet and pleasantly devoid of faux pauses.
