So far, the Oscars are really wonderful. They always say it's going to be new and different - but for the first time, I really do think they've changed the event. It truly is a celebration of the art of filmmaking, and of the collaboration that is so necessary in creating great films.
Hilarious presenters (which I'm very glad they kept secret - Tina Fey and Steve Martin was a tremendous surprise!), a wonderful new concept for the design (both music and sets, which harken back to the nightclubs of the 1940's, including wonderful new arrangements of classic film themes), and starting the night off with 5 wonderful women presenting the award that they all had once won, and welcoming a new member into the club of women who have won Best Supporting Actress...Ah. Now this is what Hollywood should be.
