Sybarite: Let's go back to that thing they did in the 70s where they had four or five hosts and kind of spread the biatching around.


I'm still rooting for Statler and Waldorf from the Muppets.  No on-stage host, just those two ragging on every speech and musical number.

Bith Set Me Up: I did find his introduction of Christopher Plummer which spoofed "The Sound of Music" to be pretty funny.

The problem with the Oscars isn't that it's not funny, it's that it's no longer a good judge about movie quality. Too many flash-in-the-pan films that sweep many categories but are immediately forgotten. Seriously, when was the last time you watched "The Cider House Rules"?


There was an article about the 10 worst Best Picture winners.  At some point in the 1970s, the Academy started to confuse the Nobel Peace Prize with the Best Picture Oscar.

Oscar host: Hollywood's worst job. And I'm including the guy with the mop who has to follow Lindsay Lohan around.

Hawk24: I'm wondering why they even feel the need to have a host at all. There are presenters for each award and musical act...the host's only purpose seems to be to open and close the show, introduce the presenters (which is really redundant), and make some poor attempts at jokes from time to time. Skip the host, use a voice-over announcer to keep things moving along when needed, and bring the show in at 2 hours.


Yeah, they should just print out the results on a sheet of paper and stick it on a bulletin board in the lobby.

Also, if the Oscars had a sense of humor, they'd have SMF back to do a follow-up song "We Saw Your Balls" which mentions all the guys who went full monty on screen. Of course, part of the joke would be that it only lasts 30 seconds (not many examples of male full-frontal out there), but it has potential.

DjangoStonereaver: PizzaJedi81: IdBeCrazyIf: I thought he was a great host.

Our generations Dean Martin, sans bourbon on stage

You know he was getting blitzed in the back.

Though he was no teetotaller, Ol' Dino never put anything other than iced tea in his bottles on stage and
never worked drunk.  It was all an act.


WHAT??? I considered him my role model!!!

Do you mean that I've been getting drunk at 9AM every morning FOR NOTHING???

If anything, "We Saw Your Boobs" showed you which actresses have a sense of humor.

Blame "Oscar season."  Bunch of indie tear jerkers and sweeping self indulgent big budget epics hoping to ride the critic's momentum to the nominations voting deadline without giving any time for reflection.  There needs to be a five year waiting period like in sports halls of fame so that hopefully clearheaded reflection can prevail over in the moment snap judgements.  Of course then Hollywood people wouldn't get the immediate satisfaction of an ego handy from their peers, so that'll never happen.

RoyHobbs22: PizzaJedi81: RoyHobbs22: Daniel Day Lewis was the second actor to be nominated for portraying Abraham Lincoln . . . and the joke that followed was solid gold.

Ohhhh...I remember laughing my ass off, but I dont' remember the actual joke.

Raymond Massey was nominated in 1940.  But the first actor to really get inside of Lincoln's head was John Wilkes Booth.


Feh. Obvious and weak shot at some low-hanging fruit.

Mugato: Is the Obvious tag busy running a joke into the ground for 20 minutes?


It hit its knee and is over in the corner going, "Ahhhhh...sssssssssss....ahhhhhhhh....sssssssss...."
