The 89th Annual Academy Awards ceremony celebrates the film industry's best and biggest in cinema for the year 2016 with host Jimmy Kimmel, including awards for best actors, directors, songs, original screenplays and motion picture.
Ellen DeGeneres is a wonderful host & I appreciate her wit. But this time around, she goes haywire with poor anchoring and she often stammered on stage and not only during calling the presenters (which was supposed to be funny) but also while cracking jokes.
Then comes the bad direction. The camera men really messed things up when it came to on-stage shooting. The speeches were emotional as they are always but I loved the speech of the winner of best supporting actress. It was sweet & true. Towards the end, the awards function was like a parade of giveaways. Williams's Happy performance was pumping while U2's was a soothing gig. The selfie was the highlight of the show and I was fairly entertained.
But I must say, while the glamour stays fine in the Oscars show, the sophistication has dwindled due to many reasons, hosting, presentation etiquette & direction being some of them. An average show, but I am happy for the deserving winners.
