It didn't help that the Academy decided to piggy back their theme this year on The Artist and the nostalgia of the theatre. I got it, but since I thought The Artist was over-hyped and blah to begin with you can imagine my disappointment when they based a 3 hour broadcast around it.
The show overall was one my Grandpa and all his friends at the retirement lodge probably enjoyed and the generations of people who come from the time of fast cars and movies with Michael Bay type explosions thought it was a giant snooze fest.
In part...it was one of the most boring telecasts I have ever seen...and I watch curling on occasion.
Overall here are my picks for the best moments of the awards:
Martin Scorsese drinking gameCarrying on their hit drinking game from the SAG Awards, Melissa McCarthy and Rose Bryne of Bridesmaids pulled out mini bar sized bottles of Grey Goose from their dresses and drank when someone in the crowd yelled out Scorsese. I love me a good drinking game...and if they were actually playing the whole night - those hussies would have been smashed.
Ryan Seacrest getting a dead dude dumped on him
Did you like these picks? No? Well imagine what the other 2.9 hours of the show felt like. Death.
