Oscars Revisited

Further to my previous post—which you should still go and comment on, if you haven’t already—I found one critic who actually liked Stewart hosting the Oscars:

Jon Stewart, despite being somewhat out of his element and appearing a bit nervous, was my favourite Oscar host in ages. I don’t know if that has as much to do with Stewart than with my utter distaste for Billy Crystal, but Stewart made me laugh about as often as Crystal makes me cringe. That bit where he listed all the things that creep him out about Hollywood, making the audience believe he had a point, despite having no way of tying it up, made me chuckle. I suppose Crystal can dance, but at what cost!?

I would post the URL, but I don’t know if it’s available publicly...

Like I said, I never saw it, so I don’t have an opinion. But maybe it wasn’t as bad as some of the other reviews made it out...
