Affleck looks like he is still in his Tony Mendez character. And that's 6 out of 7.

BTW, despite my heterosexualness, I have to say there's something so sexy about that man's Irish accent.

James, yes it is. Thoughts on McFarlane so far: He definitely is holding up real nice, easily the best Oscar host in my time of watching the show (which isn't that long). The intro seemed to get him into his comfort zone and most of his jokes have been quite funny so far (unlike Baldwin, Martin, and Crystal). And he's definitely very charming which is to his advantage.

Mmm, nope. Disagree on that one.

Once again, lord almighty Travolta is so ugly.

John Travolta is starting to look a little like Tommy Wiseau.

Not watching because fuck that shit, but McFarlane sounds like the perfect Oscar host. He has the appearance of edginess while actually being safe as milk.

And really... Life of Pi for cinematography? Can we declare moratorium on future ceremonies until someone explains to Academy members what a cinematographer does?

I can think of at least five movies* I saw from 2012 that are genuinely deserving of the award, and I didn't even see many of the Oscar contenders.

(*All of which I selected for my Pedros ballot. Vote early, vote often!)

Zeta-Jones was super annoying.

Hudson was super annoying.

Les Mis cast was good.
