(what im sure will be one of many posts about) Three Six winning an Oscar. *updated*


So if you watched the Oscars you saw what I would consider one of, if not the greatest television moment I've seen in my 25 years. In case you missed it, here's what it was like for/from me.
Three Six performs, which is sort of odd already because its fucking Triple Six performing on the Academy Awards (Juicey J was wearing yet another amazing skull tshirt). So they finish, and im just like "ok, cool" and then Queen Latifah comes out, comments a little about their performance and reads off the nominees for original song. And I had a weird feeling about it, mainly because there were only 3 nominess and frankly, "Hard Out Here For A Pimp" or whatever it was called was honestly the only one im sure anybody could identify out of a lineup...and then Latifah opens up the envelope, and they fucking win. And then the camera cuts over and you saw 4 (i honestly dont know who the fat dude in gray was) of the happiest dudes youve ever seen in your life. Jumping up and down, chains flying, towels waving, and they all dash towards Queen Latifah only to realize that they were supposed to accept the award at the other microphone for some reason. So they have to move this contained ball of joy (you know when people get into fights in cartoons or in comic strips? like when Sarge beats up Beetle in "Beetle Bailey" and its just a cloud with arms, legs and shit sticking out? Thats what it was) moves across the stage to the other mic, and then they just start naming off people left and right. DJ Paul's Southern drawl was amazingly times 10 at that point and you could hardly understand anything he was saying. At one point I heard Juicey J say "JESUS" and then Paul, obviously at a loss for words, searches the crowd and points at George Clooney, and says something like "Thanks to George Clooney for being cool when we met the other night."
And I think Jon Stewart summed it up best when he said that they were the most excited dudes of the night, and it showed, and honestly, it was endearing, because you could see genuine excitement coming out of those dudes in what was possibly the defining moment of their long careers.
And yes, in case you were wondering, Crunchy Blacc was there.
Who run it...who run it indeed.
