Here are all my Oscars red carpet and telecast thoughts, compiled into one handy volume from Facebook. Horrible show. Obvious highlights would be Cirque du Soleil, Jim Rash soft-mocking Angelina Jolie and—can't believe this part was a highlight this year!—the lovely "in memoriam" section, even if Esperanza Spalding 100% lip-synched due to the complicated nature of the audio and the producers' decision to cut out any disparity in the amount of applause for some corpses over others.
Billy Crystal was totally off and should not host again, even though he did improve later on and his naughty political jabs were funniest. Neil Patrick Harris should expect a phone call soon if he hasn't already received it.
Here ya go. Thoughts?
