Billy Crystal Oscar Host Review

Billy Crystal as Oscar Host: Solid Gold or Getting Old?

Billy Crystal took on hosting duties for this year's Oscars, and the seasoned vet (this was his ninth time as emcee) seemed comfortable being back on stage. As I'd hoped, Crystal brought back his trademarks, like the opening montage spoofing the nominees, along with his song-and-dance medley that skewered stars and movies alike (sample lyric: "George is cracking up because his wife is shackin' up"). I enjoyed Crystal's hosting, mainly because it felt pretty classic; then again, using his old routines may have felt safe or boring to some people. Still, it was far better than Anne Hathaway and James Franco's effort last year. I'd like to hear what you guys thought of Crystal, though — do you think he succeeded as host or not?

Agree with stone_soup. Thought Crystal brought some much-needed class back to the Oscars. Last year was unrecognizable as the Academy Awards. Last year's Oscars felt more like The People's Choice Awards, and that's just wrong.

Still better than the stuff we've been getting in the past.
