These time-wasting classes had been an insult to the Oscar winners who had had their very own hard-earned triumphs consigned to the pre-broadcast slot, to not point out those that needed to hurry by way of their acceptance speeches as a part of the reside broadcast. When Drive My Automotive gained greatest worldwide movie, its director, Ryusuke Hamaguchi, was actually pushed off the stage after his first few sentences.

The dearth of creativeness was pathetic, too. A tribute to James Bond on the sequence’ sixtieth anniversary was logical sufficient, however why a montage of movie clips launched by three excessive sports activities athletes? The fiftieth anniversary tribute to The Godfather was simply as rudimentary. After which we had Samuel L Jackson, John Travolta and Uma Thurman presenting an award collectively to have a good time the twenty eighth anniversary of Pulp Fiction. Are we actually celebrating twenty eighth anniversaries now?

From the second it occurred, the night time’s large story was at all times going to be Smith’s slap, but when all the things else had been extra pleasant {and professional} then possibly it might have appeared like an unlucky blip versus an emblem of all the things that was incorrect with the occasion. In the beginning, Schumer made a joke in regards to the decline and fall of the Golden Globes: as soon as an vital, high-profile awards ceremony, now so mired in scandal that it was held in non-public this 12 months. Three and a half hours later, the Academy Awards could not afford to be so smug. If this farrago was one of the best the producers might give you, then possibly subsequent 12 months’s Oscars needs to be held in non-public, too.
