Comments: Sunday in the Parking Lot with Pimps

That is brilliant. I can't help visualizing Bernadette Peters as Whore 1...

I kind of see Charles Kimbrough as Pimp 2.

Huh. The crowd I was watching it thought "Pimp" was a close second to "Travelin'" and both left "Deep" far behind.

Marc: While I am of the opinion that Dolly deserved the Oscar, I think I probably would've been even more annoyed if she'd been beaten by the intolerably bland "In the Deep".

For the record, "Hard Out Here" is about thirty times better in the movie (performed by the actors) than it was at the Oscars, where it was crappy and disorganized. According to the Boston Metro, Terrence Howard was advised by friends not to perform the song live and "represent the African-American community as a pimp."

Having seen all the songs in the context of the movies, the best one won.

Okay! If Bernadette is Whore #1, can I play Whore #2 (I'm perfect to say that line), and cover the role of Whore #1? And PLEASE can we get Michael Cerveris for Pimp #1?

Also: William Ivey Long hasn't had enough flamboyantly garish costuming jobs. Give him a call.
