That was a great moment and it was interesting to see the people who got in there - and who didn't.  Ellen was excellent.  The show was an hour too long.

It is actually pretty dumb ....

the rest of the Oscars night was boring,  interspersed with lame and even dumber jokes.   If you can even call them jokes.

It made Angelina Jolie look like Gene Shalit. So there's that.

I think she could pull off a walking dead zombie w/o much or any makeup.

In other words, the way awards shows have been for decades.

Ellen seems like she's deeply disturbed. Something about her demeanor and her forced smile makes me think she's a very different person when the cameras turn off.

Now picture her with a strapon on banging Portia with that same forced smile.
You're welcome

Maybe Ellen killed it in the first half of the show, but from when I started watching, it was like her jokes and bits were actively draining life from me.

I'd guess she keeps barrels of Dip and murders unsuspecting toons.

She's not even the funniest person in her family. Brother Vance was great on The Daily Show.

that's certainly valid.  You are the wind beneath my wings.  They should have set the tone early and smacked Jared Leto off the stage.

Hate Ellen, has never said anything remotely funny, just my opinion.

She isn't very funny or unique. Her career was pretty much on the rocks, then "HEY EVERYBODY LOOK AT ME I'M GAY" and here we are 20 years later still reading her name and seeing her on TV.

Someday soon, nobody will care enough about sexual orientation to make it a factor one way or another.

You've obviously never watched her do actual stand up. She's very clever and funny, and she relies on a lot more than "Hey, I'm gay."

Ellen is awesome, but I'm still not watching the Oscars.

I, too am far too cool to have enjoyed any part of this.  Thank you for expressing the sentiment that I am far too cool to bother expressing myself.

Ellen's first stand-up appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (sfw)

I thought she was funny then. And from what I've seen of her performance last evening (opening monologue an hour ago as I was busy watching other things last night) she was funny then. Her audience wasn't very receptive but then again, The M.C. rarely gets over on Oscar Night (even Bob Hope and Johnny bombed* more often than not.)

*gleaned by watching clips of them hosting found on YouTube.

Sinbox: Her audience wasn't very receptive


They almost never are. It's a crowd full of nervous, insecure, careerist narcissists. It's nearly impossible to entertain them and the TV audience with the same material. Ellen is middle-of-the-road and likable enough to come closer than most, I think.

I watched her standup before she had a sitcom, because that's how she got the sitcom...which was in the doldrums when she came out of the closet.

Fact is, there are less interesting straight people who do just fine in showbiz so her sexuality doesn't matter. I find her somehow insipid despite her "edgy alternative" lifestyle.

This "selfie" is the farking flagship for what is wrong with social media as "news."

The whole thing is sponsored by Samsung...it's a farking commercial. And millions of dipshiats promptly comply with their corporate marching orders and retweet the commercial like good useful idiots.

Today the news media is only happy to "report" on something that happened on Twitter as if it's news, and conveniently forget the whole thing is a manufactured farking commercial. fark everything about this.

 Who's the black guy? Is he Lupita Nyongo's brother? I think I saw him sitting with her.

 Anyway, it's a pretty good selfie. Make me think it wasn't really shot with a cell phone. Or, maybe they took it in advance, and then simulated it during the telecast.

 Oh, and Ellen is pretty funny if you ever see her stand-up.
 
2014-03-03 03:01:01 PM
Just like I'd expect from the Hollywood Prom. Ellen's clique posing for a selfie. All that was missing was the King (Best Actor) and Queen (Best Actress) having a spotlight dance.

Grace Jones hasn't aged a day, other than the glasses.

It is. Rockin' the Janel Monae haircut.

It was. But don't credit Ellen. It was Bradley Cooper who snapped it, and he somehow managed to frame it really well. I swear, Ellen was *this* close to taking a vertical pic until he got the phone and flipped it.

The choice of Oscar host is almost always a reaction to the year before. Last year was Seth McFarlane, who went way over the line so they chose someone super safe this year. And even McFarlane was a reaction to Billy Crystal's channeling of Bob Hope from the year before. I expect next year we'll get Andrew Dice Clay.
