Like millions of other people, I spent my Sunday evening watching the 2016 Oscars broadcast. And, like millions of others, I have to share my hot takes below.
That’s my one-word review. I thought the entire show was ridiculously boring. None of the celebrities were willing to step outside of their comfort zone, and the two who attempted something offbeat, Sacha Baron Cohen and Sarah Silverman, ended up failing miserably. The memorable moments were few and far between. Gone are the days of Jack Palance’s one-armed push-ups or Sally Field’s “You like me, you really like me!” acceptance speech. We’re locked into a world of corporate responsibility and a focus on brand marketability. Blah!
