\UPDATE: So what did you think? Comment below
Me: five previous Oscar- actors who spoke to/of each nominee for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor --liked it, good idea, they should keep it; Tribute: those gone last year --couldn't read the name, credits -curtains -sound -other tech glitches just stupid, pretty amature; rest of the show: can't stand musicals; hanging a curtain of crystals didn't make it classy; boring show. What's the "need" --an aging male homosexual (wearing too much make-up) criticizing/snotty remarks on female actors clothing? --Why? Anyone who can fog a mirror has an opinion, so what. Sheesh, so tacky --passe, KABC, Loose it. Next year: some class --and a comedian.

If you're still awake:
~ Barabara Wawa
Will do her usual mind-numbing nosy "celebrity" thing, afterwards, same channel
Then ABC NO doubt, will waste valuable air time on: no-class "analysis" of clothing, shoveled up by some jerk airhead unseen all year wannabe desperate to make a name for "him"self, surrounded by the giggling bobble-heads, tarted up, who "think" it's appropriate to cram Oscar drivel--non-stop--into News...can't hardly wait ...am I the only one thinking about, missing Siskel & Ebert.... "...it's the movies that got small." -Norma Desmond
