Re: The 11th Annual Academy Award Challenge (January 24, 2017 - February 26, 2017)
I don't think Kimmel bombed, but he certainly didn't give a great performance either. I just got bored. The jokes weren't great, thought the whole tourist thing was pretty lame, though that first couple was pretty funny, and the candy from the ceiling bit had been done twice before now. (pizza with Ellen and Girl Scout Cookies last year).
Oh well, I'll probably still watch next year, but man, I'm not sure why perfectly good hosts lately have been giving sub par performances. I had high hopes for a couple years ago with Neil Patrick Harris as I've enjoyed him hosting in other things but he didn't do great either. That magic bit that carried through just was lack luster.
Is it the directors/writers/whoever is in charge making the host tone down too much so instead of creative freedom, they're forced to work with a script they don't like?
Anyway, just wanted to thank lisadoris for hosting!
