The Oscars

Will Jack Nicholson return to the screen in Steven King's Daddy Warbucks Strikes Back? Wish Thank You For Smoking had been nominated for something. Out of touch, it was sad to learn of the passing of Bruno Kirby. R.I.P.

In music, I was pleased to see awards going to Ennio Morricone and Gustavo Santaolalla, the latter of whom composed soundtracks for 21 Grams, the Motorcycle Diaries, Brokeback Mountain and Babel.

I've mentioned my appreciation for the Motorcycle Diaries soundtrack before, and I think it worked particularly well with the sweeping scenes of two young men sputtering along dusty South American roads on an old Norton 500 motorcycle. Here's a great montage from the film with Santaolalla's De Usuahia A La Quiaca in the background.
