I haven't watched the Academy Awards in years and years, but couldn't help but turn it on and keep an eye on the television tonight.
Not much was said about people with MD. The video clips included children like Mattie Stepanek, young published poet who passed away a few years ago. He was shown briefly, but no verbal mention or caption reveals who he is. Lewis' ego came out when he referred to his own acts of kindness, though his tone also sounded like a poke at the protesters.
I was afraid that Ben Stiller was making fun of Gov. Paterson, with his dark glasses and his "I don't feel like being funny anymore" statement, but apparently he was making fun of another actor, Joaquin Phoenix.
