Comedians At The Oscars

Did anyone make it through last night’s Oscar telecast? Pretty sure we knocked out sometime after the Best Sound Engineering In A Foreign Musical award, but Bruce Vilanch and his team of comedy writers may be partly to blame, too. (Suggestion for next year? Cut human resources, obvs.) If you didn’t watch, this musical number was, believe it or not, a standout moment. Despite the predictability of Jack Black singing at an awards show, Will Ferrel’s lines to Ryan Gosling and Marky Mark make it worthwhile. Another nice moment came when Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, and Steven Spielberg presented the long-overdue Best Director award to Martin Scorsese’s eyebrows.
