It was the first Oscar show I've watched since 1992. I'm sorry I broke my 17 year record.

I saw the last 45 minutes or so. I thought the In Memoriam was a mess, but the rest of it was okay. And it finished on time for once.

I watched about an hour of it and thought it was terrible. The only good bit was Tina Fey and Steve Martin. I'm sure they wrote the bit themselves. The rest of it was stale for me. Ben Stiller's gag was funny for about a minute but it got old. Fast. But all this begs the point. Do we really need an Oscar night anymore? We're bombarded with show biz stuff to the point that the Oscars seem cheesy and irrelevant except as a marketing tool.
