I am just after watching the highlights of the Oscars. Ellen did a good job opening the show.

Ellen did a good job for her first time out. I love her and was totally pulling for her. I think there are a lot of constraints hosting a show like that, so if she did it again, she'd have even more of a handle on all of that. But she was relaxed and made me laugh here and there, which is all I want from the host anyway. I'm more there to see who wins.

I thought it was really funny, and I really liked the J Hud/Al Gore joke. It was refreshing that she wasn't trying to be controversial.

Yes the Jhud/gore comparison. funny, but i stop watching shows when any sort of political jokes are made out of place, and this includes conerts. obvi no one went/tuned in to the Academy Awards to hear political jokes..atleast not me. just a personal preference and no one has to agree. Up until then i thought she was funny and doing a great job though _________________________________________________________ True but Al was a nominee what else was she supposed to joke about with him. The internet gag is old. Lighten up a little.

I'm going to be the odd one out and say... it sucked. I wasn't laughing at all. I love to laugh, but she was annoying and trying way too hard, and she was dragging it on and onnn, it was like, "Ok music, cut in now and cut of this boring HOST so we can see some gold guys already!" Whose idea was it for her to be host?!

I think she did great...I'm really liking her as a host. She is genuinely funny, without trying too hard (in most cases anyway).

It was fine. I was a little nervous for her if she can pull her jokes off but it was entertaining.

This year's opening by Ellen was short and sweet. Overall they are doing something new, shaking it up a bit, with more bite sized entertainment numbers, and by altering the structure of how the show had played out in recent years. We went through a bunch of more technical categories to start, and finally at 9:20 EST they bang out one of the supporting categories. The whole thing is playing out more like a 70's variety show with all the musical numbers -- like how 'bout that Ferrel/Black/Reilly "Comedian at the Oscars" number! And then the sound effects choir. I'm impressed with the presentation -- it seems more intelligent. The savvy intro with actors, directors, artists and technicians interviewed on the white background was like an Apple computer add. Thus Ellen really fits this vibe/aesthetic. And now LEO and GORE!!!
