Rich's comments: Well, this year's Oscar ceremony was once again made unforgettable for the wrong reasons. Aired uncut in the UK feed, Chris Rock's joke was appalling but certainly not worthy of Will Smith's shocking physical and verbal assault. Meanwhile, the ceremony itself was more than a little awkward in the way it was overthought. Editing in those earlier categories made no sense, only partly because we already knew who won, but also because it still ran overtime due to all of those montage moments oddly inserted into the chaotic running time. Most winners were hugely deserving, others were given for less-than-best work as usual, not a single one was a surprise. The trio of presenters were great fun, and we could have used more of them.
