Then she, in turn, butchered the song. Seriously, it astonishes me that this pitch resistant "vocalist" has a Tony. Unlistenable.

Ellen's best joke:

"It's going to be an exciting night. Anything can happen. So many different possibilities.

Possibility number one: 12 Years a Slave wins best picture

Possibility number two: You're all racists."

I liked it when Kevin Spacey helped pay for the pizza delivery.

He peeled off an extra bill and handed it to Ellen, saying "And that's for you."

It seemed as if the orchestra didn't play anyone off on a long acceptance speech, and the world didn't come to an end (yet the show did). Maybe all the angst over that for all these years has been unnecessary.

Oh...seriously?

Cate Blanchett winning Best Actress, making Woody Allen the first director to have directed Oscar winning performances in five consecutive decades.

I've long loved Cate Blanchett and happy for her that she won, but I hated her character and simply detested the movie -- but recognize that many people seem to like it, though it dismays me. (And I've been a longtime Woody Allen fan.)

I was pleased that there was very little of the orchestra drowning out acceptance speeches, which, for me, are usually the best part of the program. But, unlike DiMucci above, I wasn't that taken by Matthew McC's acceptance speech -- he should have used what his co-star, Jared Leto, had to say to better focus what he should have said. But was quite pleased that he won. Interestingly, decades ago, many ripped apart Leto's movie "Prefontein" about the brief career of runner Steve Prefontein, preferring "Without Limits" starring Billy Crudup. Looks like Jared Leto has gotten the last laugh in that race!

I didn't like the characters of Walter Neff and Phyllis Dietrichson, but I enjoyed their performances as well as the film.

Worst Oscar Moment : Ellen referring to Liza Minnelli as a Liza impersonator and calling her 'sir'. Definitely 'cringe worthy'.

“And I have to say one of the most amazing Liza Minnelli impersonators I have seen in my entire life,” “Just really, seriously,” the Oscar host added. “Good job, sir.”

I couldn't believe they would invite the Minelli's to honor their mother and then dish out THAT.

I didn't like any of those, nor most of the speeches that went on, but I loved Lupita Nyong'o's speech.

To add sarcasm to sarcasm, I guess in Ellen's case, it takes one to know one. I think Minnelli was actually stunned and a little hurt by Ellen's joke.

A lot of Ellen's material doesn't work. And like on her show a lot of her material is "me me me" all about Ellen.

Ellen is looking more and more like Barry Manilow.

I didn't watch the Oscars (or any awards show for that matter), but Travolta's neurotic attachment to fake hair is way beyond creepy now.

John, you're a good guy. We like you. Just stop. It'll be okay.

PS. Listen how he says "wi-kid-ly". Do you know how drunk you have to be to do that?
LOL

Did anyone notice that Liza forgot to wear a bra?

I have nothing against her, but I never thought she was funny. Going way back when she became famous on Showtime for winning funniest comedian contest. I wouldn't mind getting to know her partner though.

I think she is good at ACTING like she is funny, ie the requisite actions with her eyes oogling and smiles. Jay Leno was really good at this, you could swear he was funny if you watched him, but if you listened to him it was not that funny.

Never thought of it that way, but that's a really good description of her (and JL's) talents.
