Jon Stewart's introduction of Harrison Ford -- "he's either a international movie star or a car dealership" or something like that -- officially confirmed my feelings about this ceremony. It's the worst I remember, it's because of the host.
That includes Letterman's "Uma/Oprah" nightmare. Seventy-five percent of Stewart's jokes are bombing for me. He's better behind a desk impersonating a news anchor. On the Oscar stage, he comes off as too jaded, too disrespectful.
Congrats to Diablo Cody for winning best screening with "Juno." She's from my old stomping grounds -- Minneapolis. It's good to know that Hollywood can come from where we come from.
