Anyone watch? Did you like it or no?

I liked Seth as a host, but I hear he is getting bad reviews.

I like the old hollywood fashion, but otherwise I didn't watch... ill prolly breeze through it tonight jsut to check out some of the speeches and whatnot, but Im that big into movies anymore.. anything that coems ou tof the box office is usually over produced and so hollywood its just not worth paying to see anymore... the last movie that really caught my eye was Looper and it ended up being such a bad movie...

And apparently Megan Fox is being cast as April in teh new TNMNT movei.. directed by Micheal Bay.. that alone and with the fact that they are changin the orgins of the TMNT in this remake tells me the movie is going to be shit.. you don;t cast a hot dumbass to play a smart women's role...

Barbara Streisand was amazing. She did a tribute to Marvin Hamlisch. That lady still can sing up a storm!

I watched some of the red carpet but that's it. Chopped was all new last night so I watched that instead.

I don't think I've seen any of the movies that were nominated. I do want to see a couple eventually though.

That and the title Is Ninja Turtles, not Teenage Mutant. Michela Bay screws everything up.

I loved Jennifer Garner's dress - although it didn't look comfortable to sit in, especially for how long the Oscars are.

Jen Lawrence looked great too.

The Bond tribute disappointed me. Couldnt they have rounded up all the former Bonds to appear.
Too much musical stuff, didnt get the whole Chicago thing. It was so ten years ago.

Not a Ben Afflack fan, not interested in seeing his butcher job of recent historical events.

I want to see Lincoln, even though they took liberties with the truth as well.

The Life of Pi is on the list to see as well.

Seth MacFarland was good, I cant remember who hosted last year.
The Ted thing with Mark Walberg was stupid and tastless.

The In Memoriam piece left out a lot as well

notably Andy Griffith

Maybe they were thinking of Andy Griffith as more of a TV personality and not a movie actor? Not sure why he would be left out.

I liked the show except for one really big thing - The First Lady presenting the award for Best Picture. That was such a horrible horrible decision!

The Oscars should NOT be about politics! It should be about movies and celebrating them - not about pushing your political agenda on the audience.

Awful! And, she should have known better than to accept the invitation.

oh! i didnt realize there was a thread here - sorry.
TMNT - uhg why?
LIncoln and Life of PI - cant wait to see these
Clarke who was it last year? Tina Fey and whatshername?
I thought Seth did well. i went on the net for 5 min and there are both good and bad reviews. some say he was awesome - others not so much. I like the Vaudville acts he did, he's been trying to get that back into style for a long time. Some people said that this shouldnt have been the venue for him to do so. but i enjoyed it, and you know what he is the only reason why i decided to watch - i normally loathe these shows.
I liked Charlese Theron's dress when she was ballroom dancing with whatshisface

by that reasoning why did they lead off with Ernest Borgnine ostensibly better remembered as McHale than Marty (which he won an Oscar for)

I only watched Adele sing Skyfall and saw Kristen Stewart have a blank stare into the camera with her disheveled look just like her crappy acting in movies.

I also agree with the First Lady thing, it shouldn't have been done, but I loath these shows so I didn't see it.

I'm glad DDL won best actor for Lincoln. They took some some liberties with the truth in that movie BUT that doesn't take away from his acting. With 3 Oscars now an argument can be made he is the best actor ever.
