The Oscars Telecast: Will it ever be Good Again?

The Oscars Telecast: Will it ever be Good Again?

            Last night’s Oscars Telecast was extremely dull and unimaginative.  The telecast started on a bad note right from the beginning when co-hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco injected themselves into the Best Picture Nominees ala Billy Crystal back in the day.  Anne Hathaway was hamming and over exuberant while James Franco looked at one point like he wanted to take a nap.  I think I speak for us all when I say we all could have slept through the entire telecast and missed nothing important.  James Franco towards the end of the ceremony wasn’t even looking at the camera, but instead the camera caught him looking at the ceiling and then offstage.  Anne Hathaway to make her mark on the telecast insisted on shouting whooo every time someone was presented an award.  Had a drinking game been invented for every time she made this awful, shrill, overpowering whoop, there would have been many drunken people by the end of the evening.  I have a message for the people who plan this ceremony every year, try to find an old style comedian who will set the right tone and keep people entertained.  Please don’t ask James Franco or Anne Hathaway back next year.
