9:38: The presenters are funny tonight. Cate Blanchett handled her bloop well, and Greg Kinnear is so comfortable up there, he could have had a beer in his hand.

9:42: Jennifer Hudson is having one hell of a year. Wasn't she just standing in front of Simon Cowell, like, two days ago? Seems like it. Hey, if she can make an entire movie theater applaud a song she's singing on screen, I think that deserves a few awards. (At least that's what happened when I went to see Dreamgirls.)
