Over in La, the last reveller has staggered out of the final Oscars party. Yet in the aftermath of this year's ceremony, far more than the actual winners, people are discussing comedian Seth MacFarlane's opening song, We Saw Your Boobs - mainly in highly negative terms.
The case for the prosecution is that it kicked off Hollywood's biggest night by belittling its most powerful women - and at an event, as Buzzfeed pointed out, where only one woman has ever won the highest individual prize, the best director award.
So since I don't own a television, I hadn't actually seen 'We Saw Your Boobs' until now. Now I have. I'm speechless with misery and rage.
