Kentucky rules the Oscars!

Cheers to all the Kentucky winners at the 85th annual Academy Awards:

  • Best Actress Jennifer Lawrence, a Louisville native (nice recovery from that fall, too)
  • George Clooney, one of the producers of Best Picture winner “Argo” (his second Oscar, following Best Supporting Actor for “Syriana” in 2006)
  • Kentucky native Abraham Lincoln, so ably portrayed by Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis.

During his opening, Oscar host Seth MacFarlane tossed Clooney a small bottle of whiskey as an apology for this line about the youngest Oscar nominee:

“In 16 years Quvenzhan√© Wallis will be too young to date George Clooney.”

I couldn’t make out the brand and so far haven’t found reference to it – anyone know?
