It was solid overall. [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought the hosts were good for the most part,they got quite a few laughs from me,especially jabs at Cameron,HFPA and Franco co-hosting Oscars with Hathaway ;) The problem is that they were not on stage for very long,but it was the same with Gervais last year,they probably want to speed up the show and obviously can't cut commercial breaks.Categories presenters had mostly lackluster jokes written for them,Baron Cohen being the exception(Russell Crowe singing,I didn't think it was that bad,but I still laughed pretty hard) and the comedic highlight - a little overplayed ,but very funny nonetheless sketch by Ferrell and Wiig.

Awkward moments - Bill Clinton presenting on stage for reasons unknown, teleprompter malfunctioning ,pointless HFPA president appearance.Jodie Foster speech was just too convoluted and chaotic,and millions of years too long,but this is De Mille award,so let her have her shine.

Great speeches by Adele(the only emotional one that i felt was honest and not prepared+ the accent :) and Jennifer Lawrence("I beat Meryl" and never old reference to Harvey Weinstein's omnipotence in Hollywood,I love that kind of dry humor )

The awards were pretty much predetermined,although Django Unchained for supporting actor and especially screenplay were big upsets.
Homeland is good,but not nearly as good as the award recognition suggests,so many plot-holes and conventional thriller cliches.But i guess I'm happy for Damian Lewis.

My favourite part of the show would definitely be every Emily Blunt closeup :P
Seriously though it will have to be Ben Affleck getting the Director after Oscar snub and Argo winning best picture was nice too,although i haven't seen all of the films,but I really thought Argo was great combining thriller with comedy and make it work ,which is extremely difficult.Definitely one of the best films of the year.
