This year’s Oscars was blah. There’s no other word for it. James Franco & Anne Hathaway left much to be desired, and the speeches were all kinds of boring.
When Kirk Douglas went up on stage – I expected it to be just as boring as everything else. But I was happily mistaken!
At 94, he definitely upstaged the hosts and other presenters making him Best in Show. Makes me wonder why they didn’t just ask him to host – I could have listened to him all day. Stringing along Best Supporting Actress, telling the ladies how beautiful they are, and poking fun at Colin Firth. He did everything that the hosts didn’t.
When Melissa Leo won supporting actress he replied, “”You look more beautiful than you did in The Fighter.” hmm… Not sure how much of a compliment that was! Either way, she took it in stride and even asked him to pinch her before making her acceptance speech and then walked off stage with his cane.
