    The sound is not good tonight--I've noticed several times that someone singing (Catherine Z-J and Adele) seem to be inaudible at times, and several presenters were hard to hear.

    Did Adele just lip-synch that?!! It sure looked that way...boo if she did.

    Yeah, they need to talk to the Grammy people if they want to do this again. Their mix is off.

    She is too attractive to go out like that. Comb your hair. Even if you were having sex backstage.

    I think Kristin Stewart is an awful actress. She always looks like she smelled something bad, dresses inappropriately and is so flat all the time! Ugh. I suppose she's made other movies than the Twi-Crap, but those sucked so bad, I can't believe she presented at the Oscars.

    Renee should have laid off whatever she was sipping an hour or so ago. Swayin around and unable to focus.

    I cannot believe Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress. I love her, but that just wasn't that great of a movie. Blah.

    Okay, but she deserves a mulligan on that presentation. Tripping really flustered her!

    Daniel Day Lewis: I don't know how this happened. Really? It couldn't have been the relentless campaigning for it?

    And Michele Obama? What a terrible, terrible idea.

    Really anti-climatic and chaotic show after all that.

    Loved Argo, very understated film so happy that it won Best Picture. Yah it is over.

    Turned it on for a couple of minutes while on the phone with a friend who was watching.
    Didn't recognize any faces or names or film titles.
    Turned it off again.

    I'm going to say I thought it was great! I've thought it unwatchable in recent years but I enjoyed the heck out of it, laughed out loud in several places (as did my 90-year-old granny), and enjoyed the music. I don't think Adele lip synced, but Katherine Z-J definitely did. I did think the sound mix was off in a few places, as the orchestra often seemed to drown out the singing. Hell, I can't stand Channng Tatum, and even I smiled and clapped for his dance routine! I thought it was the best Oscar in years. Then again, I always thought Billie Crystal was an annoying, self-important little prig--sacrilege, I know, so perhaps my taste runs counter to the norm.

    Where is Bob Hope when you need him....okay, dating myself again. The sets
    were gorgeous. But what's with the orchestra in another building.

    Seth McFarlane left me like, angh! Some of the presenters in pairs or groups looked like they hadn't rehearsed or something. Don't go to the movies much anymore but enjoy the fashion part. It sort of seemed like a rehearsal instead of a finished production.
