The Oscars were another great “yawn” for the year. Chris Rock brought it to an all time low as master of ceremonies. The only redeeming part was the tribute to Johnny Carson. Bob Hope and Johnny Carson were hard acts to follow when it comes to master of ceremonies. Bring back Billy Crystal or Robin Williams!! At least we will laugh more instead of being insulted by poorly written jokes.

Frankly I would prefer replacing those opening monologues with those great dance numbers that used to open the awards ceremonies.. Debbie Allen needs to get back in there again and help those clowns.
