Does anybody want to sound off about the Oscar cremony or the winners? The insta-critics seem to universially hate the show but I thought it was well produced for what it is. The setting was ingenous and not boring, while it worked reasonably well at its task of getting people on and off the stage. I thought presenting the awards for technical achievment from the audience and the "artistic" awards on stage worked OK, though some critics apparently don't understand the difference between those talents. Rock was a disappointment. He's no bad boy, in fact as someone has said he is the black William F***ing Buckley. Just because he uses a lot of adult language doen't mean his work is controversial, edgy, or daring. I didn't hear all of his opening bit but what I did hear was a little gentle humor directed at the Prez. Sweet. Rock should go back to the New Jersey suburb he grew up in. The rest was just lame and he read the prompter like a zombi. And speaking of zombis, Eastwood's direction is just as wooden as he is. Always has been. In best actor, Don Cheadle should have instead of Jaime Foxx.
