And the Winner for Most Soporific Performance Is….
The Oscars are an embarrassment. They were rock bottom in the ratings last year, so being 50% improved this year is misleading: This was the second worst program ever for them in the ratings. The “patter” is amateur, Jimmy Kimmel is not funny (but he works for ABC), and the entire evening is anachronistic.
There isn’t enough innovation in the motion picture industry to recognize talent without this ridiculous “best this and best that”?
Where’s Will Smith when you need him?
(And they keep fooling themselves. Kimmel remarked that all these films were seen in movie theaters where they should be seen. I saw all of them streaming on my TV. Maybe he’s not into technology.)
