So many people have been tripping up on their presenter remarks. Might the teleprompter be screwing up?

Still deciding if Ellen's crack at Liza was cruel or not.

Is someone with the Academy holding Harrison Ford's family hostage? He could not be less interested in being there.

I don't think it should since Pharrell directed them to stand.

I only thought the jokes were okay, but she at least went through the monologue with aplomb - no dithering, no waiting for the laughs - and it got the audience energized, as did the Pharrell number. And if the audience is energized, hopefully the rest of the show will follow suit.

Does the standing ovation for Pharrell Williams count for our oscar prediction contest? :D

Why the hell did Kerry Washington walk out to music from DREAMGIRLS? Did they think she was Anika Noni Rose? Now that was racist.
