    It’s Jackie Weaver, not Ryan

  2. Slezak – you’ve made your own gaffe: it’s Jacki Weaver!

  3. Erin says:

    Yep, that’s Jacki Weaver, though she probably prefers if you keep the caption the way it is.

  4. Jen says:

    Oh no! This one had me laughing for a good minute!

  5. Martina says:

    Can I have Jane Fonda’s doctors number, I’m less than half her age & don’t look as good

  6. Leah says:

    Looks like I would’ve been much better off watching the E! coverage. What I watched of ABC’s was agonizing.

  7. Marie says:

    When Kristin Chenoweth was talking to Catherine Zeta Jones, then turned to Michael Douglas and said “and who are you?” Cringe worthy.

  8. Josh says:

    To be fair Kristen Chenoweth is REALLY tiny. She isn’t just a skinny girl…she’s TINY.

    • Brigitte says:

      The thing I found most distracting with Kristen Chenowith was how often she mentioned her size. I love her and think she is super talented, but everyone can see her petit stature, I am not sure why she brought it up in every interview.

  9. Sarah says:

    I hate Ryan Seacrest doing the red carpet. I like the rest of the E! red carpet, just get rid of him.

    • Julee says:

      Love Ryan Seacrest.His class is desperately needed at E News, and anywhere he appears.

    • Stella says:

      Seconded. I just don’t think he’s that good at red carpets: he tends to accidentally insult or ignore people, and he doesn’t react in ways that encourage good interview banter. All of the other red carpet interviewers did a better job than he did.

  10. Julee says:

    Worst Oscar opening since Rob Lowe danced with Snow White looked like the first meeting to bounce ideas. Unbelievable, that no one in 5 months?…couldn’t make something better out of that mess like editing at least half of it out. Seth is a talented guy but it’s like someone set him up for disaster accepting every idea when one or two of the best should have been chosen.Truly painful to watch. Try Amy Poehler or Hugh Jackman, Ellen…

  11. Laquisha says:

    Scandal is not the hottest show on television. Seriously, relax. It was a stupid interview on E!.

  12. Allyson says:

    did anyone see that guy try to pull away the Oscar winner as he was giving his acceptance speech? What happened to music being played in the background to get actors off the stage?

  13. Angel says:

    SCANDAL is definitely the HOTTEST show on network television right now.

  14. Scontz says:

    Boring GOO I’d say. That’s it – that’s all I dropped in to share.

  15. Bill H. says:

    Host was seldom funny and a few times crass. He, writers and producer are all to blame.
    Hopefully none will be back.
    As for awards this show has become nothing more than entertainment and ads, as an award show it is a waste of time. But then so are all the others on TV.

  16. Danielle says:

    Love the commentary. This site should get all the awards.

  17. nuwagaba seth says:

    this wz very fair but nt 2 les mis

  18. slizabeth says:

    I’m sad you left out Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy’s awful, awful presentation… How can two hilarious people drown so badly?

  19. LaurenMC says:

    “Nope, E!, that wasn’t Viola Davis. It was that other black actress, Octavia Spencer.” HAHAHAHA

  20. Jeremy says:

    Did the Chenoweth/Adele interview remind anyone else of Gandalf & Frodo?

  21. Tamara says:

    E!’s coverage sucked this year. Is there a reason they cut out an hour early to go sit with the girls in the newsroom? Seacrest, if you don’t want to do it anymore, don’t even bother. For once, ABC’s red carpet coverage was much better.

    • susie says:

      I totally agree that it looked like Seacrest just stopped covering the red carpet. Why wasn’t the rest of E out there like they used to? And did anyone see how Catherine Zeta Jones wanted to show off her nails and rings in the nail cam and he ignored her? He needs to step up or quit.

  22. ejones says:

    Strangest moment was seeing the band in a separate building, presumably with their sound being transmitted to the hall. Seemed wrong that Adele managed to get a band on stage whilst Dame Shirley, who inevitably sings with a band, had to sing with the piped music. Even semi-retired and well into her 70s DSB can certainly turn it on.

  23. Kelly says:

    Why did they stop interviewing stars after a while!? They just talked about clothes mostly. It was so annoying!

  24. DT says:

    The woman next to Ryan Seacrest is Minako Nakano

  25. the douche says:

    That woman is one of Japan’s top celebrities, way above any cheap ass show like E!. Who’s bombing who now?

  26. daihatu says:

    Her name, Minako Nakano. December 14, 1979 (33 years old). Japanese.
    She is really the narrative is poor, her work work program announcer.
    She is a graduate of the University. However, she is famous. “Ignorance” It.

  27. Good job Minako-san!!! LOL

  28. Momo says:

    This is not a big deal, just too crowded. That’s all.
    Maybe he should have interviewed her.

    Keio University Admission by recommendation. XD
