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.
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"?
LegacyDL: Three words: Neil Patrick Harris
FlashHarry: i... kind of enjoyed seth macfarlane as oscar host./ducks
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.
DjangoStonereaver: PizzaJedi81: IdBeCrazyIf: I thought he was a great host.Our generations Dean Martin, sans bourbon on stageYou 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 andnever worked drunk. It was all an act.
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.

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