Oscar Tie-In: Steve Martin’s Tipping Philosophy

Posted by gratrueities on March 9, 2010

Well, did ya enjoy the Oscar’s last night?  Personally, here at GraTRUEities, we were well-entertained for pretty much the entire show (sans that goofy dance routine in the middle; what was that?). It’s always fun to see all of Hollywood out and about in their finest, paying each other all kinds of compliments.

But, what we really enjoyed were co-hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. Who, unfortunately, were just not given enough screen time.

It reminded us that Steve Martin in “My Blue Heaven” had one of the best ever lines about tipping when he said: “It’s not so much tipping that I believe in…but over tipping.”

And, with that, we eagerly await another year of movies capped off by an even better 2011 Awards show.

*One additional note: Though we were unable to find any specifics regarding either hosts real-life tipping habits, we suspect both are generous….and we did learn that Alec Baldwin once waited tables at Studio 54.
