Lady Gaga stole the Oscars with a great Sound of Music (1965) tribute that—as she's been doing lately—focused on her straight vocal talents at the expense of her out-there persona. It makes it cool to like her again and sets her up well for a return as a pop diva. Some on Twitter maintained she was lip-synching, but the audience leg-synched her a standing O. The only part where she lost me was when she seemed to veer into mimicking Andrews's British accent; no reason to adapt the accent, and certainly she didn't need the gimmick because she was on-point.
Also very much enjoyed the other musical performances—actually, all of them.
As for the awards, I can't say anyone was robbed. Birdman is a great, creative film, so if Boyhood couldn't grab it, it couldn't have gone to any other more deserving flick. And Julianne Moore finally won; she has deserved Oscars many, many, many times.
I was struck by two things overall: As adorable as NPH is, he seemed a little too pleased with himself and didn't seem to catch on that the writing was really bad. His lockbox joke fell completely flat, which was when (at show's end) he finally seemed to understand it wasn't his best performance as an emcee. Still LOVE him, but he just didn't impress me. Loved the opening. (<---Sounds like an upbeat 50 Shades blurb.)
And the second thing was how political—but within reason—the show was. Many speeches got serious, whether about suicide, Alzheimer's disease, ALS, equal pay for women, immigration. That's probably why I felt NPH's little quips after a couple of those moments (mocking the lady's dress after she brings up suicide, making a treason joke after the Snowden doc won) felt a bit off.
Oh, and regarding the in memoriam segment: How in the FUCK is Lizabeth Scott left out??? Yes, yes, Joan Rivers was left out as a statement; they definitely knew people would be annoyed. But Scott seems to have been forgotten. Big-time actress who lived nearly to 100. Shameful.
In your opinion...who (if anyone) got robbed?
P.S. Come friend me on Facebook; I do live-blogging better than late-night recapping.

A hugely popular Russian page—Fascist in nature—posted a picture of two American dads (famous singer Sam Harris and his husband Danny Jacobsen) with their baby, defaced with the phrase, “Where's my mom, faggots?”
It was liked many times and, in spite of complaints, Facebook has apparently said there is no violation. So Facebook's policy is...to facilitate vicious homophobia?
The page's owners claim to respect human right's (sic) but want no gay people in Russia.
