I'm surprised.

Thought the Brits would choose more artistic choices.

I don't expect to skip it, but I don't expect to find much to like either. When the most interesting sounding announced presenter is a 9-year-old kid something's a little off.

I agree - I have watched every telecast since 1970 - this year's races have left me completely disinterested, and the thought of watching mad max win all the down ballot categories is a depressing thought - I am strongly considering skipping the whole telecast - first time in 46 years!

There were some surprises.

I'd go into details but I don't want to spoil it for anyone who wants to see the awards unfolding on TV. It airs at 7:30 P.M. EST in the U.S.

Predictable and uninspired.
