Cleaning up . . . or not

Yeah, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King totally cleaned up at the Oscars last night. (Here's the list of winners, if you really care.) Somehow, it was slighted in the Best Foriegn Language Film category, though; despite all the Elvish and other assorted faux languages, Return of the King wasn't even nominated. C'est dommage.

Although Peter Jackson surely knew that he was going to be marching up to that little podium many times last night, he obviously didn't think the occasion merited either a pre-Oscars bath or a quick hair brushing. That's how it was easy to identify his wife, too. She was the only other person at the ceremony who looked half as disheveled as Jackson did.
