Funny and well done traditional Oscars. It also payed homage to the years best "No Country for Old Men"
25 February 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"The 80th Annual Academy Awards" this time hosted by funny guy Jon Stewart who was doing the hosting duties for a second time. Clearly was a winner the presenters, and the script was great as Jon's jokes were very humorous it kept the audience at laughter all night as he hit on pop culture things ranging from politics, sex, making babies, and he even gave good praise by saying things about the current nominees. As always legendary Jack Nicholson had a front row seat, the evening was also well done in a traditional and classy way for the way the old clips and montage of flashbacks were used. As each category award was presented before it was handed out a vintage montage of past awards winners was shown from that particular category which was a good film history tribute and it educated many folks in a classy way. Most awards went as expected the favorite Daniel Day Lewis won best actor. And the best film of 2007 clearly got it's due as "No Country for Old Men" took in the best supporting actor nod for Javier Bardem and Joel and Ethan Coen won best director and the just mentioned title rightfully won best picture. Overall this Oscars was well done it was made watchable by Jon Stewart and his honest sharp wit humor it was well paced even though the show ran a little over, yet it was done very classy for the way it used the old montage clips of flashbacks to pay homage to past Oscar winners. I give a thumbs up for "The 80th Annual Academy Awards"
