'Once' gets another major boost with best song

"The is a guy who doesn't have health insurance and is traveling around to pubs," said another Kent Oscar party celebrity guest about "Once" winning for best song. Robinson Film Center should be happy for that too. "Once" was screened in late 2007 by the nonprofit film center.

Stewart just had another funny comment (his only other funny comment): "That guy was so arrogant," he said sarcastically as the "Once" star and songwriter Glen Hansard (and his unspeaking costar/cowriter) left the stage.

It's way too late for the Oscars to be getting goofy, though. That should have started two hours ago.

NOTE: Jon Stewart invited the unspeaking costar Markéta Irglová back on stage after the break so she could give her acceptance. That was classy. Nice work, Jon.

Just now Stewart brought the "Once" lady back out to finish her speech...

Maybe he should stop trying to be funny and let these talented (and so far very gracious people) have their moments in the spotlight.

Here comes my least favorite category: "documentary"

I wonder what kind of political tirade we'll get this year?

And when do we learn who the mystery guests are? The suspense is killing me...
