Heidi, I'm trying to figure out if you liked Chicago or not. You wanted it to be nominated, but then called it an "overrated movie that glorifies and romanticizes murder and publicity, supplies men with two solid hours of T&A, and annoyingly bursts into song every five minutes". Damnit, if Chicago wasn't Fun I don't know what is. Not because of the women, but because of the music and the wicked dark humour in showing the media eating up the sensationalism.
I don't see any reason to watch the Oscars anyway. It's an overly long production which hands out awards, as you note, for all sorts of reasons OTHER than who was actually best.
