No, I didn't watch the Oscars

I'm too "cool" for that.

(But can someone please explain to me why the Borat film earned a nomination for "Best Adapted Screenplay?" What was it "adapted" from? Seriously?)


I think, and I'm not sure because I have never watched anything Sascha Cohen has done, that Borat is a character that Cohen made up for his show, so in that sense, it's adapted. But again, I'm not sure. It's a guess.

Hey Barry,
It is kind of cool that you are too "cool" to watch the Oscars.

No, K, you're right. It's because Borat was an existing character, and some of the bits were from Da Ali G Show.
