Slumdog Sweeps- Good Year for a Ho

The Academy Awards were staged well, and having awardees on stage for the four major individual categories was a thoughtful touch. The understated decor and scaled back theatre dimensions were in keeping with the tenor of our times.

As we’re only three years removed from “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp”, when it was announced that the Best Song Award went to “Slumdog Millionaire”‘s “Jai Ho”, I found it wonderful that a song with “pimp” in the title has now been followed by a song with “Ho” in its name.

(did they just say “Jive Ho”?)
