Oscar dud

All I can say is the Oscars this year were the worst ever – in my own opinion.

The horror of Kirk Douglas feeling up Melissa Leo would have to be the lowest of the low point. Melissa Leo full stop!!!!

So disappointed Annette Bening did not win 😦

Disappointed for Jacki Weaver, happy for Hollywood producers with vision (think beyond the pigeonhole) – Jacki is a great dramatic actress & also a fine comedienne – if Neil Simon was still productive in the film scene she would be a fine Simonesque female lead. I yearn for the Simon years to return, alas it seems that Judd Apatow is amongst us now 😦

Appalled by Hathaway & Franco as Oscar hosts – what were they thinking? The doomsayers were spot on. The whole Oscar show was amateurish!! Imagine having all that money and resources and you get cheap and tacky!

I dreamed a dream – I was watching a smart witty and funny screen comedy starring the combo of Bening & Weaver. Isn’t Hollywood the stuff of dreams? – tell that to the Oscars next year, please no more Oscar nightmare for me.

BTW Melissa Leo – to take out a tacky trade ad promoting oneself and passing it off that women of your age are not getting those magazine covers.This has not happened since the days of Bette Davis – get a reality check. Then to spout out the fuck word for pure sensationalism (in my own opinion) at the Oscars, my you are a classy lady. But you won the Oscar in the age of reality tv and sensationalism – good on ya.

    Yes it was ghastly. And the Kirk Douglas turn was horrifying. And Melissa Leo a disgrace. But isn’t this the show we love to hate? I can’t remember an Oscar broadcast I actually liked. The tone was set for me decades ago when the camera caught Bette Davis pulling up her bra strap…
