Trivia

On January 16, 2014, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated songwriters Bruce Broughton and Dennis Speigel for Best Original Song for the title song to the film Alone Yet Not Alone (2013). Two weeks later, on January 29, 2014, the Board of Governors voted to rescind the nomination after AMPAAS found out that Broughton, a former governor and executive committee member of the Academy's music branch at the time, had improperly contacted other branch members by e-mail solicitation for support. AMPAAS did not replace the nomination with a runner-up, and only four songs were nominated. See more »

Minimum amount of wrap-it-up music!
3 March 2014 | by (L A.) – See all my reviews

For a change, the show last night used the minimum amount of get-off-the-stage music, allowing most of the winners to make decent acceptance speeches. I've been writing for years about this issue, how the play-music-over-the-winners'-speeches ruins the proceedings for me because the whole purpose of award shows is to honor the winners, let them bask in their moment of glory, and apparently others have been vocal about this issue as well. There were still constraints, off-screen cues of how much time was left, and most everyone heeded them so the music wasn't necessary in most cases. Thumbs up.

The show itself was very good. Ellen DeGeneres was a fine host, funny without being mean-spirited or corny, just sharp enough in her comments throughout. Loved the pizza thing, that really humanized the affair in a clever way. This was a classy show for the most part, and I didn't nod off once. Kudos across the board - for a change.
