If you happen to see the Oscars show this past weekend, you probably shared my sentiment. Oy. Quite dull indeed.
Although Hugh Jacman was great in the first ten minutes, the show just seemed to drag on and on and on, etc.
To get you thinking like a producer, what would you have done differently? What did you see production-wise (e.g., the horrible back and forth shots of the in-studio monitors so that we couldn't see or read the information on screen) that they could've done to make the show more visually appealing?
Whom would hire as host next year? Did you miss Jon Stewart?
I know this is a break from my regular posts, but the Oscars is a huge event in this town and you would think it would go off without a hitch. But there are some years where it just feels 'off' in some way -- and this was unfortunately one of those years.
Let me know your thoughts!
