Did you watch the Oscars last night? What did you think?
I'm a big movie fan, so the awards mean something to me. But I was disappointed by the show. The host was lame (and sexist). The tribute to James Bond movies was weak. Even the usually teary In Memoriam segment overlooked a giant (Andy Griffith). And it was sheer nepotism to devote so much time to a movie from a decade ago ("Chicago") merely because the producers of the ceremony previously made that film.
What do you think?
