Agreed, it was funny. And sweetening the jet ski deal with a trip to Lake Havasau of all places was funny. They should have really gone for it and added a new car, like a Chevy Spark.

Should have left the link the way you found it.

"Phantom Thread" costume designer Mark Bridges @ 30 seconds.

I like him as host. I don't want the song and dance numbers that people claim to love but actually don't. And since it isn't a show where you can tell edgy material, he's better than most at not coming off as cheesy.

I remember when I first watched "but my name is called Reginald" Billy Crystal host this Oscars show and he spun around and did jazz hands and he said "Oscar!" and someone hit a timpani drum in the orchestra pit and someone threw a pear at him, now that was good

Were you wearing an onion on your belt when this happened?

I was!

Everyone does remember "Uma, Oprah" as being a bad part but nobody seems to care that Billy Crystal came out and said "My name is Randall, people call me Reggie for no reason, so... but my name is called Reginald" and then did a 25 minute monologue about what his name was called, the "Randall Reggie Reginald" speach will live in infamy

 That was back when he was a fatty. He's thin now and can get away with more.

Funny enough, Adam Carolla was one of his writers last night.

I commented to my wife last night that there is a weird irony to a former host of The Man Show being the Oscar host in the year of #MeToo.

/Maybe he as a perfect gentleman with the models on TMS
//Maybe he changed his ways and it was a message that if he could, anyone could?

"We made a movie called What Women Want and it starred Mel Gibson" was a pretty great joke/observation

I listen to the Adam Carolla podcast (which is why I knew about him writing for the Oscars). A few months ago a former female writer of his (can't remember her name) came out with a story about being abused by somebody she worked with, but didn't specifically say who she was accusing, so everybody thought it was Adam.  She came onto his show and basically told everybody that it wasn't him, that he was a perfect gentleman while she was working for him. 

I have a feeling that most of the women involved with The Man Show probably have the same sentiment, and it more than likely extends to Kimmel as well.

I remember The Man Show as being pretty tongue-in-cheek about celebrating "manly" things, and most of the jokes were at the expense of the hosts. If you remember the show Home Improvement it was like watching Tool Time if both hosts were Tim Allen.

Oh, I remember the show and even watched some of it while in college. It was definitely tongue-in-cheek at points, but it was also (according to Wikipedia) 6 seasons and 112 episodes of juggys and girls jumping on trampolines. The tongue-in-cheek card only works so far before one has to admit there was some male misogyny going on.

What I think is interesting and not necessarily wrong is that in a Me Too world, those who were quite open about that behavior in the past can be forgiven.

You know what IS funny?  Any thread about the Oscars in the "Entertainment" section.  The 90th Academy Awards was anything BUT entertaining.

Misogyny ≠  Assault.

The women weren't forced to work for them, nor were they held against their will if they didn't like what was going on.  If I go up to a woman and say "Hey, you want to get paid to jump on trampolines and be ogled by men?" it is their right to say yes or no.   As long as the choice is theirs alone to make, then there should be no issue with it.

The issue is when you start to use your power to force them to jump on trampolines or be ogled by men.

Agreed. I don't think objectification is bad in certain contexts. Like naked firemen calendars that objectify men, if they agreed and got paid to do it, are they victims?

It seems like just yesterday when he was co-host of the sexist  "The Man Show".  Chugging beers, and going out with boobs a bouncin' with "girls on trampelines".
Man, no one brings that part of his resume up.....

You interrupted a conversation about The Man Show to say how come no one ever mentions The Man Show.

Seriously, it's a relatively tiny comment thread, why wouldn't you bother reading any of it before posting?
