The Oscar Yawn

I didn't even make it past the halfway mark of the Oscar's last night.  The writing was so dull and uninspiring.  Roger Ebert commented on his blog that the first laugh came when Billy Crystal came on stage. I had already given up on the show by that time and missed him. 

The opening was silly.  James Franco has a sleepy way about him which doesn't work for a host.  The big surprise of the evening was not one of the winners, but Anne Hathaway's voice.  She sang beautifully.  The song was silly, but she gave it her all.  She wore a tux, which meant James dressed in drag.  Yikes.
