The Oscars: At last, a show that no one can complain about (though, of course, they still will)

In recent years, grousing about the Oscars, which used to begin and end as water cooler chatter, has turned into a trivially self-serious industry, an annual collective rant in which the Sins of the Telecast are dutifully compiled and picked over and excoriated. “The show was way too long!” “It was boring!” “The host was a bust: unfunny and, at times, offensive!” “He (or she) should never be invited back!” “The musical numbers were terrible, and the In Memoriam segment left out far too many people!” “The tribute to _____ stopped the show dead in its tracks, and so did the montages!” “They were badly done, and there were at least three too many of them!” “______’s gown was hideous!” “The acceptance speeches went on way too long!” “Except for the ones that were cut off by those egregious music cues!” “And what was up with ______? My God, he looked so old!” READ FULL STORY

We all know Ellen DeGeneres loves to dance — she even led a whole chorus full of tuxedo-clad dancers for her first Oscar promo.

Ellen's sitting pretty in official Oscars poster

Yep, we’re really in the thick of awards stew: The Golden Globes take place this Sunday. The SAG Awards are next Saturday. The Producers Guild Awards are the day after that, followed six days later by the Directors Guild Awards. And just a few weeks later, everything will build to a fever pitch when we finally reach the season’s biggest, glitziest event: the BAFTAs.

Just kidding! (Unless you happen to be reading this from the U.K., in which case… I’m still just kidding.) I’m speaking, of course, about the 86th Annual Academy Awards, which will be helmed by repeat host Ellen DeGeneres.
