I personally thought it was the worst Academy Awards show in years. You need a stand up comic to host-someone who can ad lib and isn't afraid to be a little edgy. Ann Hathaway was trying hard but James Franco was either sedated or bored to death. No production numbers, no outstanding fashion statements. Totally boring IMHO. On the upside-Colin Firth winning (I thought he should have won last year) and Billy Crystal, who's brief appearance only made you more aware of how lame this years hosting was.
