At least there was no play-off music!
9 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

So here we have an award show where the winners actually got to give speeches, without that horrendous music playing them off after 30 seconds or whatever the time limit is these days on presentations such as the Oscars, the Tonys, the Emmys, all the major ones, which, in my opinion, have been RUINED by this. For that alone, I give the show an 8. As I keep saying, award shows should be about the WINNERS, not about absurd musical numbers, witty repartee between ridiculously-paired presenters, any of that garbage; the WINNERS and their moment of glory onstage, accepting their awards, should be the main priority.

Didn't like Jason Alexander's routine at the beginning where he calls his mother an 'imbece-ile' for doing her own reviews of movies; that was really stupid, I thought. He could have done the same routine but set it up differently, without insulting his own mom. It's called a brain, Jason. Look into it.

Of the winners, Anne Hathaway's speech was the most memorable - very moving and heartfelt. I also liked Richard Gere's acceptance of the Joel Siegel award; that was meaningful without sounding pompous, as Gere can sometimes come off.
