Oscars post-mortem by Miss-M on 6 March 2006 11:51pm
What did everyone think of the 78th Annual Academy Awards? Hit or miss?
Re: Oscars post-mortem by Ellerd on 6 March 2006 11:54pm
I didn't even watch it. Too long. The results were all too predictable anyway.

According to the newspapers here, Jon Stewart hit the mark, but there were no sparks from the stars. I only saw Reese make her acceptance speech, which I thought was very cute.

I enjoyed the show very much, but then, Jon Stewart (& Lewis Black & Bill Maher) have been my shining lights in the darkness of the past 7 years...

I think the viewership was down perhaps because there was not one single blockbuster this year, but instead a plethora of really superlative films that people didn't see! I'm glad the "sleeper" film won.

I was upset because there were at least two instances where there were partners who went to accept the award together, but the director cut the second person off. The broadcast really was not running too long and I think that was unnecessary. These were not stars, but people for whom this was the moment of a lifetime.

The mantage of the classic Hollywood westerns, showing how incredibly gay they were, was brilliant! Even my fav, Gregory Peck....... :^D

I don't think they should have made such a big deal over a rap song, either. The music genre, whether you like it or don't (I don't!) has been around for, oh, 30 yrs. now. Deal with it.

And there was no reason for Kevin Spacey to be there, which is always a great disappointment for me!, but I was redeemed when they showed a movie of his on TV this morning.

Does anyone else remember watching teenaged George Clooney on "The Facts of Life?" !!

I hated Facts of Life, but saw George in a clip from that show while watching a biography of his life.

I thought Michelle Williams looked a bit washed out with her yellow dress. It clashed terribly with her blonde hair and pale skin!

And Naomi Watts' dress?! Hmmmm... no comment there.

The only dress I coveted was Jennifer Anniston's. Absolutely classic and wonderful.
