Here’s a rundown of just some of the quality analysis from the famous people who didn’t score an invite to Westminster Abbey.

E! has been broadcasting its own uniquely, um, E!-like coverage on television and online, anchored by Giuliana Rancic and others.A British commentator just noted that Middleton padded the hips on her dress to make her waist look smaller. “Really?” Rancic asked. “That’s brilliant.”

It’s surprising, really, that Jay and Silent Bob didn’t get invited to the wedding. Despite the snub, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are currently live streaming their analysis of the royal wedding. (Sample comment from Smith: “What happens to these two now? Is he a decorated war hero of some sort?”) I am guessing the language may get NSFW although they’ve kept it surprisingly clean so far.

Tila Tequila has been doing the same thing. Because the royal wedding needed an additional dose of dignity, and she’s the obvious person to fill that need.

And then there are the tweets. Here’s a handful of the best so far, with more undoubtedly to come.
