Worst Oscars Ever!

*ZERO suspense. Any random person on the street has known the winners for months.
*The tug between "young and hip personalities" and ancient film references was as schizo as Cate Blanchett's dress.
*The acceptance speeches were either dazed and incoherent or dry and boring litanies of names.
*Hammy Kirk Douglas was beyond irritating as he hijacked the Supporting Actress moment (though I did get a perverse kick out of his earlobes).
*Randy Newman was sweet to say that there should have been five song nominees, though in actuality, there should have been none.
*And hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco died a hundred deaths with really lame material. It was all setup with no punchline.
