Oscar Pick Results
The show itself was fair to middling. One improvement would be more clips, less singing. At least they didn't have interpretative dance. One of Stewart's jokes was actually profound. He channeled President Bush to talk about staying the course with the complete failure of the anti-Iraq war films. He ended with: 'We cannot allow the audience to win.' Most industries try to please the audience. Hollywood is at war with them.
Viewership was way down for the show and ever fewer people are going to the movies (and the ever rising yearly box office receipts is because tickets keep going way up in price--nearly $10 out here now).
