Deadblogging the Oscars

I'm afraid I can't see much point in posting all the witty observations I had about the Oscars (oh, and there were many). By now you've heard variations on all of them, and even if I had something fresh (has anyone else used the "Charlize Theron's dress appears to have metastasized?" line?), well, it still seems like the kind of thing you have to hear in person and have an actual conversation about, or what's the point?

Yeah, there's always liveblogging, but who sits around watching the Oscars with a computer on their lap just to see what people they don't know have to say about it? Again, isn't this the kind of thing that works best with a group of people watching the show together in one room? I'm not saying Defamer's Mark Lisanti didn't do a fine job of it as these things go, but it's still disappointing to see him try, considering that, in an earlier incarnation, he put the nail in the genre's coffin with his brilliant liveblogging of the 1984 Grammys.
