At Halftime, Nikki Finke 56, Academy Awards 3
I don’t have the ratings yet, but heard the Academy Awards were out-drawn by a season two rerun from Storage Wars. True?
Back to Nikki: if her post was a fight, the referee would have to stop it. She’s created a devastating masterpiece.
The bottom line up front:
This 84th Academy Awards show is supposed to be televised to more than 225 countries worldwide. So I’m tipping all you foreigners to something that Americans already know: The Oscars suck every year! And this year the Oscars are gonna suck worse than ever!
While that quote is representative, her insights get better and better.
Host Billy Crystal, looking generally lifelike for the first half-show, arrived in his signature Prius limo.
A short list of candidates to host the 85th Academy Awards is thought to include any of the characters from The Muppets, Conan O’Barbarian, Space Ghost, Jimmy Fallow, and Jimmy Kibbles-n-bits.
