I tried not to be spoiled by the results of the show because I watched the replay of it, and I have to watch it a day after the live telecast, and it was at 10:30 PM! That’s why I didn’t watch the news for a day, I didn’t connect to the net for a day to move away from all spoilers. Unfortunately, a bitch (as in evil bitch) intentionally spoiled me with the BEST PICTURE! The hell with that woman. Okay, nevermind. I still watched the rplay, and stayed up late until 1 AM. The next day, I was sleepy at school.
About the ceremony, it kinda sucked. The opening montage of Anne and James in the movies were hilarious, the memoriam was wonderful, Sandra Bullock brings the only big laughs from the show, but the rest . . . I don’t know. James was too bored to host, that’s why Anne was forced to do much. The script was definitely poor, and this is could be one of the least enjoyable Oscar ceremonies that I have ever watched. The laughs can be counted by hand, there were a lot of failed punch lines which made me pity for Anne, and the crowd in the Kodak Theater didn’t seem to be really that excited.
- Melissa Leo’s cringe worthy acceptance speech. I love her shock, but what she did on the stage? Hated it. Looked like she rehearsed it.
- I almost cannot hear Randy Newman sing.
- Steve Spielberg . . . . . AGAIN!?!?!?!?!? If they do this next year again . . .
- Tom Hooper. . . . . really???
- James Franco in drag . . . was this really necessary?
- James is bored.
- Anne tried to save it, but went a bit too much.
- Bad hosting from Franco. They looked gorgeous, but Anne should have taken it alone.
- GET A SCRIPT WRITER, ACADEMY! ! ! ! ! Have pity on the millions of people who sacrifice time to watch the ceremonies. Maybe they should have taken Aaron Sorkin for script writer?
