I knew going into tonight's Oscars it was going to be painful because the noms were movies that no one went to see, nor would they really want to. That being said that is not why I did not like tonight's Oscars. I was so hoping for Ellen Degeneres to be amazing, but she way nervous and did nothing that memorable. Remind me if she did. The opening number with the noms went way too long. The dancers were cool, who created shapes or whatever they did, but I could've lived without them. The singing number between Jack Black, Will Ferrell and John C Reilly went on too long and again wasted way too much time. Why did Celine Dion sing? As is the case with every Oscars, too many clip specials for no reason and are again a waste of time. Just because Al Gore was there, did they have to spend so much time telling us this is a green Oscars…so I care because? And what about the unfunny intros into every freaking nomination, they were longer than any thank you speech. I mean seriously could they be any more wordy? They go off on the winners for long speeches and the producers of this show made everything longer than the winners 45 second acceptance speeches. This is about the winners so hopefully next year it will be more about the winners and less about the show. But since that never seems to change, I don't have my hopes up for that. 

When it comes to attire there was nothing either way that made me go wow. Everyone looked good, but couldn't Philip Seymour Hoffman have brushed his hair for the Academy Awards? Seriously what was up with that? 

Now I will say there were some positive things about tonight's Oscars. I really liked Helen Mirren, Forrest Whitaker and Martin Scorsesse's speeches. I am so glad he finally won. There might've been a few more speeches I liked, I just can't remember now. How cute was it having the Little Miss Sunshine girl and Will Smith's son present? I also thought John Travolta was great, but he is always a great presenter! Plus it was great how George Lucas, Stephen Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola gave Martin Scorsesse the award! And when it comes to the winners, I didn't really care about who was nominated before the show, why would I care who won. 

I should say now that my rant is over, I have never been an Oscar girl. My movies never win. And yes I feel better getting that off my chest.
