Oscar night is one of my favorite things and here I am on my blog. That's because the damn show is boring me to tears. The opening video was pretty fun but god, someone wake me when this is over.
The acceptance speeches are dreadful, and the bits are generally stupid and pointless. Helen Mirrin speaking French? Kevin Spacey singing? Melissa Leo just needed to sit down and shut up. Ann Hathaway coming out in a tuxedo and James Franco coming out in drag was not clever, not funny. A lot of work for no payoff.
And really, why would Kirk Douglas do that? That was just painful to watch. It was worse than watching Dick Clark do New Year's eve (I know, I know...).
It's the worst show in my memory.
If there's a plus side it's that the dresses are mostly spectacular.
Okay, I'm going back to sleep now.
