I let myself momentarily indulge in a bit of fantasy, when she said, “And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for...”
Really? Your husband’s resigning?!
But it was just the Best Picture award.
I ended up watching against my better judgment, but at least DVR-delayed so I didn’t have to sit through the commercials, too.
Best moment of the night: Shirley Bassey (following the one thing I’d been looking forward to, the Bond tribute, that turned out to be pretty weak). I sat there hoping she was going to do a medley of the three Bond themes she’s recorded (the only artist to do more than one in the history of the franchise; Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker being the other two), but no such luck.
Unfortunately, my wife wanted to see the red carpet fashion parade, so I also suffered through watching the smarmy, painfully shallow and anorexic-looking pixie Kristin Chenoweth with her vaccu-formed Lon Chaney smile.
Every time Kristin spoke I wanted to go screaming down the street (my wife was watching it). She sounded like she was breathing helium before she spoke.
Ditto that, though I was in and out of the living room. Dunno why Mrs WBill finds those shows so fascinating.
Agree that the butt-kissing on the red carpet was painful to watch, but not as painful as Seth McFarland trying to be funny.
Shirley Bassey really belted it out. She's still got it. I also saw the singer do "Skyfall" (what's her name? dunno, suppose it's not important). I thought that she beat Bassey. IMHO, "Skyfall" might be the best Bond theme. She had the perfect voice to pull it off.
Jeez you'd think that the Obamas sycophants would get tired of looking at them. No accounting for taste, I suppose.
