Host Ellen DeGeneres did a pretty good job at keeping the show going without too much of her and not enough of why we're all there. Her humor was usually well-received by the audience, but she got a hushed groan when she called Liza Minelli a man. My favorite parts were when she ordered pizza for the audience and passed it out complete with paper plates and napkins, and when she decided to attempt the most re-Tweets ever by getting Meryl Streep and others into a selfie:
She managed to crash Twitter in the process!
The best acceptance speech was when 20 Feet From Stardom subject Darlene Love sang her appreciation for the award that the movie received for Best Documentary Feature. Most of the winners were very gracious and humble, and few needed the music to usher them off the stage (or the Academy was being generous this year).
The ceremony always goes long, and this year was no different. It ended a little after 11pm Central Time, but it seemed shorter this year than in the past. They also didn't seem to rush through the last half hour like they do so often because they've overstayed their welcome and everyone is starting to look at their watches wanting to get to the after-parties.
Some people don't like the whole affair, but I tend to enjoy watching the show. The audience was more into it this year, it seemed, and playing along with Ellen's routines (just look at the faces the stars were making in the "selfie" photo) made it fun and kept everyone from looking like a bunch of stuffed shirts.
