Oscars TV Review: Ellen Flops in Long, Boring, Self-Involved Show
As a television event, this year’s Oscars was more like an endurance test — turgid, badly directed, poorly produced and featuring an endless string of tired or wince-inducing moments from host Ellen DeGeneres.

Since this year everybody seemed to predict the exact same Oscar winners, ruining office pools and Oscar parties across the country, you might think there would be no surprises at the 86th annual Academy Awards. But you would be wrong. Who would have predicted that it would have been so boring, so long, so self-involved and driven sideways into a ditch by, of all people, the beloved Ellen DeGeneres as host?

As a television event, this year’s Oscars was more like an endurance test. It was a turgid affair, badly directed, poorly produced and featuring an endless string of either tired or wince-inducing moments by DeGeneres, who, by the last 30 or so minutes, seemed to have given up entirely.

Hey, it happens. Even the best comedians have off nights. Even paragons of happiness and good cheer come out and tank — as DeGeneres did with her opening jokes that seemed oddly mean spirited for her (poor Liza Minnelli) and set a flat tone that the telecast could never overcome.

Sure, she hit on a few, documenting Jennifer Lawrence’s fall at last year’s Oscars and another fall this year before the ceremony: “If you win tonight, I think we should bring you the Oscar”; her nod to Jonah Hill’s penis scene in The Wolf of Wall Street worked: “You showed me something in that film I haven’t seen in a very, very long time”; and she closed with a joke about the odds of 12 Years a Slave taking home the ultimate prize: “Possibility No. 1 — 12 Years a Slave wins best picture. Possibility No. 2 — you’re all racists.”

But that was really the end of the highlights for Ellen. She was spotty and flat in those early comments and then tried to spice things up by appearing in the audience not just once, not just twice but — did anyone count? — what felt like 47 times. In any case, it was too much even if she did set a Twitter record by getting a gaggle of Hollywood’s most famous together for a quick cellphone selfie. It still felt like a Samsung ad that was tricked up to feel spontaneous.


There is a bunch more and if you’re interested in knowing what THR’s Oscars gripes were go over there and read it. This is MY post about MY Oscars gripes. In my not-so humble opinion that was the worst Academy Awards show ever.

After checking out some of the comments in the last thread I realize that I may be in the minority here but I hated it. I would have hated it even if I didn’t lose the pool (Lyn won, edging out Angie on the last award) and I am not complaining about the fact that the Oscars pool website crashed for the first couple hours of the telecast. I’m not even pissed about who the winners were, although there were some egregious injustices.

The 85th annual Academy Awards show just plain sucked.

I like Ellen Degeneres, even though I don’t usually watch her show. She is usually low-key, laid back, kinda kooky but not mean. That is a great format for daytime television, but not so much for a three hour prime time event. I could have done without the audience participation skits. They were painfully inane and tedious.

I would have dumped the musical numbers too. We have award shows for music, the Oscars is about movies. Bette Midler’s performance was especially bad. Pink did a good job, but I’m not really sure why she was performing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” For the record, U2 is not the biggest band in the world.

Easily the worst part of the evening were the celebrity presenters. Almost every one of them stumbled on their lines, especially John Travolta. Do we really need one celebrity to walk out on stage just to introduce another celebrity?

Whoever wrote the (half) witty lines the celebrities were supposed to deliver should be shot, along with whoever thought it would be a good idea to put who’s who in Hollywood senility on stage.

Which brings me to my final point – Just say No! to Botox. Some of those aging stars looked hideous with frozen masks for faces, especially the ones with the overinflated lips. It wasn’t just the women either.

So, what did you think? Did you even bother to watch? Last but not least, who the hell is Benedict Cumberbatch?

    “boring, so long, so self-involved and driven sideways into a ditch….”
    The description of this age. I like Ellen too but everyone and everything is now gagged and handcuffed into dullness with political correctness and assimilation . Making a wrong step can be career ending. Nothing is fun anymore because someone who is deranged may take offense and cause a stink. The contrarians, free thinkers, rebels and artists have been silenced.

      Most of the cultural elites in this country remind me of teenagers – they are all rebelling against authority and they all so alike. The are conforming nonconformists.

      They don’t seem to realize that you can’t be a wealthy Obama supporter and “fight the man” at the same time.

    I turned off the tv after the selfie thing; I was bored.
    I find it funny that I got points in the pool just randomly picking.
    Congrats to Lyn & angie!

      We had a huge lightning storm about 30 minutes into it so the signal would freeze. Turned it off because their faces were grotesque and the sound was on and off. My husband put on a DVD and I read Rembrandt’s Eyes. There is art (Academy Awards) and then there is art.

      • elliesmom says:

        Out of all of the movies nominated for anything, I had only seen “The Great Gatsby”, and I only went to see that for the costumes and set design.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Looks like you picked a winner to go see for that award πŸ™‚ The only two I saw that were in the tech awards were Iron Man and Lone Ranger, they lost 😦

  3. driguana says:

    Don’t watch the Academy Awards or go to too many Hollywood films any more but was delighted to see this morning that 20 Steps From Stardom won Best Documentary Feature. My favorite from the films I saw last year!!! If you didn’t see it and are a music fan, he might like it.

  4. votermom says:

    Last but not least, who the hell is Benedict Cumberbatch?

    He plays Sherlock Holmes on BBC. He was also Khan in the 2nd Trek reboot.

    I just woke up and discovered that my Twitter account is suspended again! It was working when I went to sleep!

    Congrats to the winners of the TCH pool last night ! There are no losers in TCH-Land πŸ˜€

    I saw another pool that had Which Deceased Celebrity Will Anchor The In Memoriam segment, which is supposedly the greatest last honor. PSHoffman got the coveted position. I think I would have put someone who didn’t O.D., like Shirley Temple or Harold Ramis who I think made more contributions in their lifetime than PSH. We shouldn’t celebrate addiction 😦

    It was a boring broadcast but hung in there hoping to see a train wreck I guess. Ellen in the audience was my least favorite part. Of course she predicted at the opening, 12 Years would win because RACIST if you didn’t vote for it. That got a laugh πŸ˜‰

    They do need a new category : Best Movie that People Actually Saw would be nice πŸ˜€

    • elliesmom says:

      I didn’t see any of the nominated films so this is a real question and not snarky at all. Was Twelve Years a Slave” worthy of an Oscar or was it an affirmative action award? Did it win because the members of the Academy were afraid they really would be labeled racist? IOW, was Ellen being truthful as well as funny? One of the sad realities of affirmative action is true excellence is sometimes tainted by the affirmative action brush. When I went to engineering school, the women entering the program were mostly in the top 5% of the freshman class based on grades, class standing, and SAT scores. It shouldn’t be surprising that on average we would be among the most successful students, but the guys were all sure we were given special treatment. So I’m sensitive to this. I’d like to think the movie deserved the honor as Best Picture, but doesn’t the winner of Best Picture usually get a lot more wins?

      • DeniseVB says:

        Roots will be forever my high bar for slavery history. It was a terrible thing we did in that era, but it was so much more than the gratuitous beatings and rapes. We did terrible things to the Native Americans too 😦

      • angienc says:

        12 Years a Slave wasn’t a *bad* movie — but it wasn’t “Oscar great” — and it is especially no where near as good as people are saying — wanting it mandatory high school viewing, give me a fucking break.

        The mini-series Roots did a much better job at telling the story of the slave experience in America.

        OTOH, other than Gravity (sci-fi, which *never* wins) all the other movies weren’t really “Oscar great” either. It’s why I went with Gravity in my Oscar picks — I thought the Academy can’t actually give it to any of the others when they have one that is so far superior even if it is sci-fi. {shrug} I was wrong. I will say that if I knew Will Smith had been chosen to present the Best Picture award I would have 100% picked Slave in my Oscar pool.

      • leslie says:

        In retrospect, I think “12 Yrs” was a good movie. But when I saw it, I was continually reminding myself that as horrid as slavery was, none of this was my doing and I’d be d*mned if I’d be held financially responsible for it. I loved “American Hustle” and “Dallas Buyers Club” (DBC) which I thought had a point to make about how we treat any people who are different from the norm, and how we punish the ill and treat their illness no matter what it is. (So that is why I thought it was an important movie.) My favorite was “Her” but I wanted DBC to win.

        • angienc says:

          I didn’t see Her, but Dallas Buyers Club was much better than 12 Years a Slave (IMO).
          If the Academy wasn’t going to pick a sci-fi film, I wish DBC had been the one to win.

  7. Ann says:

    I liked it. Ellen is funny, IMO. I could have done without all the musical numbers, and why a tribute to the Wizard of Oz? I could have seen a75th anniversary tribute to 1939 – arguably one of the best years of Hollywood film production ever, but why single out the Wizard of Oz? I must have missed something.

    Anyhooo I watched until they announced best Oscar and then turned off the TV (didn’t need to listen to the speeches when I know I will never see the movie). The only thing I saw last year that won an award was Frozen (and I didn’t particularly care for it). But, I was engaged enough watching the show without knowing any of the movies or back-stories.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Gone with the Wind came out in ’39. I guess they picked Judy’s movie to celebrate because her kids were in the audience? Surprised they didn’t ask Liza to sing Over the Rainbow πŸ™‚

      • fif says:

        I thought the same thing, but I’m guessing she doesn’t have the voice for it anymore.

      • leslie says:

        After seeing the photo of her as she walked the carpet, I’m relieved for her that she didn’t have to appear on stage. She looked terrible and it would have been embarrassing for her.

    • DeniseVB says:

      My husband goes to an elderly Filipino barber, he doesn’t cut women’s hair. Maybe I should go stir up some sh*t πŸ˜‰ There are a lot of unisex hair salons in our area too.

      • elliesmom says:

        I have a couple of Lesbian buddies. We’re really good friends, and I support them. They live 5 miles from the MA border, and one of them works down the street from me. They could have moved to MA and got married years ago, but they preferred to picket the RI state house. I went to their RI wedding last weekend. Vendors fell all over themselves trying to get their wedding business. The person who officiated refused to take any money from them, the wedding cake was a gift from a local baker, and the DJ gave them a discount. The wedding was lovely, and I am very happy for them, but a lot of what was said there was pure unadulterated bullshit. I’m not sure why two very strong, highly successful women want to wallow in a constant state of victimhood. I was hoping when the wedding thing was over, they’d move on, but no, they are still “oppressed”. I still love them and value their friendship, but I want to give them a Cher slap. “Snap out of it!”

    • Somebody says:

      If I were the gay activists I’d be real careful demanding any services from muslims. Barbers use straight razors for shaving, just saying!

      It would be more interesting if it were a barber here in the US. I’d be real curious to see how the whole issue is handled when the business owner is muslim.

  8. angienc says:

    I liked Ellen’s opening monologue — all good comedy is based in truth (and yes, the only reason 12 Years a Slave won is for just the reason Ellen said — Hollywood didn’t want people saying possibility #2 — especially after Gravity swept all the technical awards & best director) but I agree the audience participation stuff got old and dragged on.

    Hosting the Oscars has to be the suckiest job in Hollywood — no one is ever happy with it. Hollywood can’t face the real truth though — they *are* boring; so instead, they blame the host.

    Highlights for me were Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, and the lady who sung His Eye is on the Sparrow (best documentary 20 Feet from Stardom) acceptance speeches. I thought they were all very sincere and moving. The realness of those 3 was a pleasant respite from the plasticity of the rest of them.

    Low light was Cate Blanchett going out of her way to thank Woody Allen for casting her. I like Cate as an actress and I can’t say she doesn’t deserve the award (I haven’t seen a Woody Allen movie since the whole Soon Yi scandal) and I know she can’t go back in time & *not* do the movie after the recent public statements from Dylan Farrow, but she didn’t have to make such a public showing of solidarity with Woody Allen — it really was like a slap in the face to Dylan. And it was especially ridiculous given her other comments “championing” women. Only in Hollywood can you publicly support a guy who — in his 50s — took naked pictures of his 16 year old stepdaughter (fact), married her at 18 (fact) and is accused of molesting his 6 year old (believable but not proven) and call yourself a “champion of women.” I lost a lot of respect for her.

    • leslie says:

      Her performance in Blue Jasmine was brilliant. It was the reason I saw that movie. I think it was my first woody movie since Soon Yi. Cate was much more “gushy” r/t woody at the Golden Globes (I am shameless when it comes to watching the movie awards shows). Many others were unbelievable in their attempts to malign Dylan at the GGs. I felt Cate tempered her comments last night and I appreciated that. She remains an amazing actor.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Didn’t the Dylan thing come out after the GGs ? It was the over-the-top tribute to Woody from Diane Keaton that pushed Dylan over the edge to pen a letter to the NYT.

        • leslie says:

          I don’t think so. but I could be wrong. I do remember thinking (that night) that I wouldn’t have said what Cate said given the timing.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I got Ellen’s Liza joke “thank you sir”, I think it bombed because it’s an inside NYC joke. Liza has a huge gay following, especially with the cross-dressers who LOVE impersonating her (and Cher, but she wasn’t there). As bad as Liza looked last night maybe Ellen should have held her fire because it came across more mean-spirited than a poke at Liza’s fan base.

  9. fif says:

    It was an odd show, but my expectations for the Oscars is so unbelievably low that I can’t say I was any more disappointed than in previous years. I love Ellen, but they are right that it was a surprisingly flat performance. For a big production like that, something has to be bigger than just one-liners – and many of those were off too. Billy Crystal did a good job of mixing up unusual bits with straight comedy. At least she tried different things with the audience gags, but they didn’t work and went on too long. I agree with many of the other comments: I like Pink, but why was she chosen to sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and why did they pay homage to Judy Garland/Oz again? I must have missed that too. Seeing Sydney Poitier struggle to reach his lines was just sad and they have to stop bringing celebrities that are too old to see, hear or read on to the stage – it’s demeaning. I had the whole thing on in the background while I was doing my bills so it doesn’t really matter to me. Celebrity culture bores me to no end, having reached it absurd zenith with our ineffectual celebrity president.

          BTW we found out a couple of weeks ago we’re expecting grandchild number 3. I’m very concerned as the last one was born so premature and she’s pregnant again so quickly. They’re still dealing with issues with the preemie. However, I’m not in charge. I’m just along for the ride.

    I enjoyed Ellen’s monologue , and a few other moments , but between those moments I was flipping channels to see what the weather was doing . I was excited at first , to hear that Kim Novak was there ,until I saw her face , and Goldie Hawn , whom I just adore , was a frightening sight as well . I thought announcing which presenter had won Oscars or had been nominated was weird . Kind of saying, well ,this guy lost a couple times .
    I usually just watch to see the fashions anyway, and I was definitely not disappointed in that regard . Some gorgeous gowns were worn last night. I LOVED Ellen dressed as Glinda , for me that was hilarious , on several levels .
    I knew who Benedict Cumberpatch was. he is absolutely beyond brilliant as Sherlock Holmes . I have watched that since the first episode . He was also Scarlett Johansson’s first husband in “The Other Boleyn Girl .He is amazing .
    The outcomes were predictable , so that was ho hum , but I have some movies on my must see list now .

    Good article on how comedy and entertainment died. They refuse to mock the powerful. And almost all good comedy and good performance *must* at least tweak the powerful. The Left has painted themselves into a cultural corner. In order to remain culturally relevant, they will have to mock the powerful. But in order to remain in power, they cannot admit they are the ones in power, because their entire ideology is built on underdog-ism and victimhood. Completely. Leftism itself has ZERO meaning if the Left is, in fact, in power.

    They cannot mock themselves and remain in power, as to do so is an admission of their power exists. But the more they refuse to mock the powerful (themselves) the more culturally irrelevant they will become. They have catch-22’ed themselves.

    I didn’t intend to watch or like the Oscars but I liked it. For once there was an awards show that featured some women in clothes, who weren’t sticking their ass or boobs in the camera and grinding. I also like that Ellen and some other women wore pants. Also the gowns didn’t seem so outlandish this year. However I have always loved the dead swan gown worn by Bjork. For many years it seemed like they should just suspend the categories for women and give them statues for best gratuitous nude frolic, best lingerie prance and best audience flash as their roles and acting were jokes. They seemed to have better roles this year.

    One thing that the press NEVER talks about re: China and Russia is how badly the USA and European banks have screwed over Russia and others.

    With the reserve currency status that the USA enjoys comes responsibility. That is a responsibility to keep a sound currency. Six years of trillions in Quantitative Easing has not only screwed over Americans, it has stuck a shiv in other economies worldwide. Because they HAVE TO buy their oil in American dollars – they get no choice in the matter.

    You know what happens when you exercise a privelege while ignoring the attendant responsibilities of that privilege? Eventually a bunch of people rise up, say FUCK YOU, and take your privilege away. No one really minds the nobles existing, so long as they take good, responsible care of their lands and their peasants. If not? You’re toast.

    If China, Russia, and the ME together ever make a concerted effort, they can take reserve currency status away from us. And our economy will collapse overnight.

    That, BTW, is IMO the main reason we invaded Iraq. They were seriously contemplating selling oil in something other than dollars. If that snowballed, it would destroy the US overnight.

    • helenk3 says:

        Feel free. I never mind, and I never worry about attribution either. Not my thing.

      • wmcb says:

        The USA earned their reserve currency status back in the day. But like many things, succeeding generations of pols came to see that as just the natural order of things, not a responsibility to be lived up to.

    • Lulu says:

      That may be next. Russia may demand payment from Europe in something other than dollars or even Euros. Putin wrote his dissertation on energy geopolitics which of course includes currency manipulation. If Russia wants it we cannot stop them.

      • wmcb says:

        Yep. Putin is playing an energy game here, and he’s deadly serious. All the rest is just hoopla and spin.

        If you want to understand foreign policy, most “foreign policy studies” and theories are fucking useless.

        Want to understand foreign policy? Study economics. Study history. And be a keen observer of basic, unchanging human nature and human cultures.

      I’ve read that Gaddafi was pushing for that as well and had convinced many OPEC countries. Then we backed the rebels based in Benghazi who toppled him, then they killed our ambassador.

    There is something very scary with this administration that is beyond their misreading the signs. It’s almost as if it is intentional so that we have to align ourselves with former enemies. I don’t like this at all. Cause even my poor inner city clients aren’t as stupid as those guys in DC.

      They “wish” things. It has no grounding in reality. So they plan and fantasize around what is not real. Their foreign policy is like their health care policy. It is based on fantasy and a lot of corruption. It we don’t have any wars the money can be spent on their friends in green tech, teacher union scams, bank bailouts, etc. They want the money to use it for something they think they will benefit from and rationalize it with a fantasy on why it can be diverted. The consequences never enter their heads. They are like a six year old in this way.

        A while ago I looked up old Glenn Beck broadcasts and chalkboards which seemed to predict your concerns Lulu. It’s all about the grand payouts which has the Obamas in line to become billionaires when he leaves office. Beck started getting hammered about that by the left, then he publically invited Soros to debate him to refute Beck’s concerns about this giant scheme.

        Too bad Beck’s given up.

      What would a President who was intentionally trying to destroy America do differently from Obama?
