Thoughts on the Oscars:
-It was the first time ever that I've watched the entire show, beginning to end.
-Neil Patrick Harris' attempt at hosting was rather disappointing.
-The music performances were definitely the highlights, especially John Legend and Common's beautiful Glory, and Lady Gaga's Sound of Music tribute.
-I was very impressed with the production design. Twinkly lights are always a good idea, the vaguely art deco sets were refreshingly simple, and the title card graphics were very well-done.
-In the same vein, did anyone else think that the floor looked like the Death Star?
