Worst. Oscars. Show. Ever.

Don't get me wrong: there were some parts of the show I liked. I agreed with most of the choices this year, with some exception to Sandra Bullock. If it were me, two newcomer actresses Gabourey Sidible and Carey Mulligan would be sharing the Best Actress prize for the outstanding performances in Precious (Sidible) and An Education (Mulligan), and i'm thrilled that Kathryn Bigelow broke the glass ceiling in the all-boys Directors honors to become the first female to win the Best Director Oscar, and Ben Stiller was hilarious dressed up as one of James Cameron's blue-skinned Na'vi characters from Pandora, but the adult website doesn't hold a candle to last night's unapologetic wave of facials that made up the telcast of the 82nd annual Academy Awards. How annoying and self serving was it? The verbal deepthroating that occurred when presenting Best Actor and Best Actress puts professional pornstars to shame. Every year, we're told that they plan to make the show shorter. This year's show went on for almost 4 hours. Bill Maher tweeted about the assault of verbal cock-sucking that took place:

Actors are just the bestest people in thw world! We are so lucky to be sharing the earth with them!! Fuck!!!

I liked the dancers they had performing during the Best Score segment. They were just mesmerizing.

I liked that as well. Amazing how they were able to capture the feelings of the composer's scores.
