It Was a Wonderful Night for Oscar
That was the BEST Academy Awards I have seen in years!!! Hugh Jackman was a fantastic host--charming...funny...talented...and oh-so-handsome! I thought the musical numbers were great and the new method of presenting the acting awards was sheer genius! For those of you who didn't watch, for each acting award, the Academy brought out five of the previous award winner. Each former winner highlighted one of the nominees. It was clear that the nominees were very moved by being presented by some of Hollywood's greats. The stage was beautiful, the music was great, the length was just right. Usually, the Oscars feel like a death march but I was sorry to see last night's show end. Hugh Jackman should host ALL awards shows!
