really reminiscent of Billy Crystal, not as funny, but equally entertaining.

Dear God I hope they calm these nomination intros down, getting through this is going to take 10 minutes.

Why does this feel like a rose ceremony from "The Bachelor" more than an awards show right now? I'm expecting someone to hand out four roses and an Oscar.

I thought the intro was okay. Best part was: " I am a slumdog, I am a wrestler, I'll rent the reader, I'm wolverine"

I can't help it. I hate Jackman. He could do a barbershop version of Spinal Tap's Sex Farm and i'd loathe him.

Did Angelica Huston just make a crack about Penelope Cruz's accent? And when did Cruz morph into Audrey Hepburn?

Somehow a stripper is a "real working girl"?

Just to jump on the bandwagon, this nominee introduction format blows. They're all going to be like this?
