JIMMY KIMMEL AS HOST OF OSCARS?

I DVRd the entire, too long show. There were a lot of political statements & shtick that I thought, for sure would be met with objections...especially after the big deal made over Meryl Streep's speech. Bathroom humor has no place there.

 

Dropping snacks from the ceiling in little parachutes? Done first by Elllen when she had pizza delivered. Definitely breaks up the monotony, but necessary in an awards show? 

 

What did you think of Kimmel?

He wasn't horrible.  The visitors coming in from outside was a stupid idea and took up too much time.

I have never liked him, and have always thought he has a mean streak

 

His segments ,on telling kids their Halloween candy is all gone, just shows how little he cares about feelings of children

Classless show and classless host.  We are better than this.

He was okay. I didn't find anything that he said offensive. 

 

He's no Robin Williams, but then again, who is?

@physicsnut   Oh, how I wish I could agree.

He was better than I thought he would be. He is not a particular favorite of mine, but he moved the show along. The best picture snafu was unfortunate but not his fault. I'm not sure how I felt about the tourists coming in , but I do know Ryan Gosling was lovely to them.

I watched more than I ever did.  He was okay.

 

The only funny thing is the "feud" between JK and Matt Damon. 

 

My favorite host was Billy Crystal - tough to beat him.
