The conventional thinking that a movie is best appreciated on a huge screen and in an assemblage of strangers no longer holds true when compared to a high-definition home theater.
Hugh Jackman was sensational. Kudos to the producers for turning to an actual movie star to host instead of seeing who's available from Comedy Central.
Could we just keep Tina Fey and Steve Martin, and send everyone else home? "Don't fall in love with me," said Martin. Sorry, Steve. You're 35 years too late.
In honor of the 81st Academy Awards, I decided I wanted to start the first annual Lucky Awards. It's not about glamour, but the person or film and their contributions to a greater good.

Tea and Sympathy will be remembered eternally for its final line, "Years from now when you talk about this -- and you will -- be kind" -- one of the tenderest moments in Broadway history.
