Oscar Oscar Oscar

As longterm readers of this blog will know, my friends have an Oscars party every year, with costumes and our own special awards (the Smoshkas) for things like Most Alarming Facial Deterioration or Modification. This year I went as one of the Owls of Ga'Hooglyoogly:

And Mj very terrifyingly went as Tim Burton's March Hare.

And despite James Franco being mostly asleep for the whole thing, this was the MOST EXCITING OSCARS EVER, because SHAUN TAN WON. Our Shaun Tan! Standing up there, accepting an Oscar. I'm still grinning just thinking about it.

Here he is with Justin Timberlake. Note that Shaun's tux is much classier.
