It has been YEARS since Mike and I have watched the Oscars. We are not crazy about Hollywood and think most actors live in a bubble that has nothing to do with real life. However, we watched last night just to see how Seth MacFarlane did. And we were not disappointed!
The whole bit with the sock puppets doing "Flight" was hilarious. We were in tears! And the "We Saw Your Boobs" song was great! Loved the camera cuts to see how the actresses who are mentioned in the song reacted! Sure he made some questionable jokes. He writes "Family Guy"! Did you expect tasteful? Seth was actually more careful than I would have expected but I imagine the director had something to do with that!
There were awkward moments, as there always are. And the acceptance speeches were long, dull, and did I mention long? The stats show that in the 60's the acceptance speeches were an average of :40 seconds long. Last night they averaged over 2 minutes! We loved the shark music (theme from Jaws) as the warning to wrap it up! Clever AND funny!
What amazes both of us every year is that the big country music award shows like the CMA's and ACM's ALWAYS end right on time. The Oscars NEVER do! I think it all comes down to manners. Country people understand your time is valuable. Hollywood people think they are valuable. And that why we are in Country radio!
