38. loved billy crystal & ellen

neil p.h. is awkward and his attempts at rude humor all fell flat. wrong audience.

and i want to say something about the issue of whiteness - his jokes & pokes at oprah and octavia spencer were like poking at a very sore, infected scar. very uncomfortable and rude. they did not "lighten" the issue nor the mood. also, the attempt at flinging every dark skinned person onto the stage for anything but an oscar is unforgivable. however, kudos to mr. iñárritu who gracefully, courageously & respectfully made the most of his moment when addressing the immigration issue on behalf of his compadres & comadres.

the performance of 'glory' and address by common and john legend were powerful and unforgettable. especially, when they both addressed the issues of all biases towards all persons no matter their walk in life - an american future we can not only imagine - but make happen.
