Oscars: Two Things Everyone Is Talking About

It was a great show last night at the Academy Awards.  Ellen hosted for a second time and was funny.  Some said her humor was uncomfortable.  But, that is how she’s built a career.  Other than the winners like 12 Years and Slave, Matthew McConaughey, and Cate Blanchett, people were talking about a couple of things that stood out.  One being John  Travolta messing up Idina Menzel’s name.  He introduced her as “Adele Dazeem” or something.  People set up fake Twitter accounts by that name after he did it.  Also, people are talking about Ellen setting a twitter re-tweet record of the selfie that included her, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, and a ton of other stars.  And, the pizza delivery got some attention too.  One thing I was very impressed with was the acceptance speeches…very well done.  I think Jared Leto wins for best acceptance speech.  Overall, it was a great show.
