One Last Shovel of Dirt on Our Esteemed Oscar Hosts

The last Film Experience podcast of the Oscar season went up today, and Nathaniel, Nick, and I picked over the already brutalized corpse of the 2010 Oscars. Don't worry, we actually found more than a few bright spots -- we're coming from a place of love, Oscar, don't worry. Anyway, listen to the podcast!

Also, for what it's worth, I thought the writing and production were far more to blame for the Oscars than Franco and Hathaway were as hosts. BUT! Just for argument's sake, here's an example of how you make awards hosting work when one host is on drugs and the other is unseasoned but game:

I'm kind of only half-kidding -- say what you will about Jack Black or Sarah Michelle Gellar, but they delivered. Also: R.I.P. Brittany Murphy. You shoulda never gone before Andy Dick.

Oh Jesus ... 2002 Natalie Portman and Nicole Kidman. That was a long time ago.

SMG is gorgeous. It's too bad she never happened post-Buffy...though I guess if this CBS show goes through that's a step in the right direction career-wise (from a business end...more than likely not from a quality work standpoint - though anything post-Buffy will obviously be lesser).

3:02 shot of Natalie and Nicole (with FUG hair) was kinda crazy.

Wow, I'd never seen that before, and it's really fantastic. If only anything at the Oscars could ever feel that loose and fun.

And yeah, holy Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman. Even then they were the royalty in the crowd.
