Oh, ok. Whew.

Anyway, I really, really, really hate the production of the show this year. No time for clips of anything -- everything's introduced with just a still image -- yet there's plenty of time for singing. Even in the RIP segment!

They finally do a good tribute and still screw it up with a crappy song after.

ON the SNL 40th anniversary special last week, one of the jokes made reference to people who had passed. Jon Lovitz was mentioned a few times....at which time the camera would cut to his reaction in the audience.

Surprised Boyhood got an editing nomination. I didn't see anything special there at all.
Was that nod simply due to editing a film that spanned 12 years? Because that really doesn't mean much.

Sorry Terrance Howard, but The Imitation Game wasn't that great.

The show is awful but the choices are almost all correct so far, so that's good. Whiplash totally deserved Editing.

Ok, the Edward Snowden "couldn't be here tonight for some treason" joke was pretty good.

Ahh, I thought it was a cue card malfunction and he was just improvising. This makes more sense.

I'm thinking the people who just won the award for the film and just thanked Mr. Snowden must have found it tasteless.
