    So, who is watching? Any thoughts on the nominees/winners?

    I didnt think anyone could be worse than James Franco.

    Seth Rogan is a disaster!

    One thing I do appreciate is the Jaws music to cut off the long winded.....

    We got Daniel Radcliffe dancing. That grants about three hours of forgiveness to everything else.

    I turned it off after about 20 minutes. Seth whatever his name is stunk. I'll find out the results in the AM.

    Seth Rogan ≠ Seth Macfarlane. Huge difference, LOL.

    At least (I HOPE) I will not be subject to seeing or hearing Taylor Swift and WHY does Jennifer Anniston continually wear her hair in that aging, stringy hairstyle?

    Well, I have the show on, but not very entertaining, what I'm really doing is, well, this.

    Yup. I agree. Maybe it's like this every year, but everyone seems so awkward and unfinished. I didn't enjoy the Les Mis cast either, not the strongest singers to begin with and it seems like they had some trouble hearing each other onstage.

    Am I the only one enjoying myself?

    I love movie musicals, so maybe so.

    If you're performing at the Oscars and you have to lip sync... you shouldn't be performing at the Oscars.

    Just sayin'.

    The end of the arrangement was a bit of a hot mess until they all got back together. I'm not sure they were really set up for an arrangement of that size. Granted that I've been listening to the musical for years and years and have what it should sound like committed to memory, and don't deal well with any alteration to the performance of the 10th anniversary cast, the mix just didn't sound right.

    I thought the Shatner thing was very funny. That We Saw Your Boobs song was...tasteless, but it's true! The long list of Kate Winslet movies...

    I don't even know who Seth McFarland is, but I like him.

    Not enjoying Seth McFarlane--he is the creator of "Family Guy" so what do you expect?! The jokes seem to be falling flat, and the whole thing feels cobbled together and hurky-jerky. Must say--Catherine Zeta-Jones looks damn good for her age!

    I"m entertained as much as I am usually by awards shows. I'm enjoying Seth McFarland - I thought the We Saw Your Boobs song was really funny (but I think Family Guy is funny, so take my opinion for what it's worth). Also loved the Sound of Music gag.

    I was loving the Les Mis part until Russell Crow came on. Everyone else sounded great to me but him. I haven't seen the movie though, but I really want to. It's one of my favorite musicals.

    I find Anne Hathaway incredibly annoying. No surprise that she won, but I'm so over her.

    I'm so happy that Brenda Chapman was up there.

    And I am going to be LOUD and PROUD in thinking that Anne Hathaway is AWESOME. Classy, articulate, intelligent enough to scare people (and that is a compliment,) and a darn good actress. Three cheers.

    It sounded pitchy to me and their timing was off, which is why I think they probably couldn't hear each other. It's difficult to do an arrangement like that on stage even for actors who are used to that kind of setup so I can understand the difficulty... it was a bit hard to listen to, though.

    Things seem to be going a bit more smoothly now, and the audience seems to have warmed up. I am enjoying most of the guests and I think the awards are very well-deserved, on most counts!
