Okay, time for the postmortem. Did any award surprise you? (Nominees and winners here.) Who gave the best speech? (It was Sandra Bullock, wasn’t it?) Which movie do you feel like you really have to see now?
What was the funniest moment of the ceremony? (Tina Fey and Robert Downey Jr. on writers, I think.) The most cringe-inducing? What did you think of Steven Martin and Alec Baldwin? (They were often gone for such long stretches that I forgot they were hosting.)
If you were caught up in the Cablevision/ABC fiasco, how did you watch?
And perhaps someone can explain to me why the cinematography nominees didn’t get clips — could the category be more visual? — and why Governors Award winners Lauren Bacall and Roger Corman didn’t get to speak, but we were treated to 37 or so long minutes of interpretative breakdancing?
What did you think of the Oscars?
