Oscar ratings

Ratings were up slightly for last night's Oscar ceremonies over last year. I thought the whole thing was a gigantic snoozefest, but I guess once you turn it on, you're in for the duration whether the show itself is great or dull. The numbers were a 27.7 rating and 42 share, compared to a 27.1 and a 40 for 2006.

I thought Ellen DeGeneres did a pretty good job. I like how things were presented visually: the shadow actors behind the white curtain was different, the visual display of actors waiting for their name to be called as winner, the fading of the ceiling lights, instead of just fading to black after the obits. Dreamgirls segment was great. There was not too much political ideologue preaching. Al Gore was cool in joining to accept the award for his film. The roving announcer backstage was mediocre. And Don LaFontaine, the movie trailer announcer, (in a world where killers go free) was my favorite!

I never tune in for the Oscars... TOTAL snooze fest.

Most awards shows seem to be: more about the people in the industry talking to each other than about the consumers of the media/medium.

Who cares about awards that are given to people in an industry from people in the same industry. Kind of like the local news awards. I see KRDO plugging all kinds of awards and I'm sorry, I think KRDO's news stinks.

I did think Departed was great!
