That has to be the worst Oscar show ever. The jokes were bad and the movies were worse. This is the second year in a row they have awarded the Oscar to one of those men's movies where they kill everyone off. The impression I am getting is that they are trying to kill the Oscar awards completely. Everything was rushed. Nothing really embarrassing happened. What a dud.
The only other explanation I can think of is that they are trying to kill the movies. I am so old I can remember when movies like "The Greatest Show on Earth" won. What a concept! A movie is good because people like it.
I was glad to see the woman from "La vie en rose" win. She is nothing like Piaf, so she must be a great actress.
There was one good bit when Daniel Day-Lewis receiving his Oscar from Helen Mirren, last year's winner for The Queen, knelt down in front of her and was knighted with his Oscar.
But that's it. I guess it's a man's industry now, and men can have it.
