Best score presenter Jennifer Lopez is already funnier than she was on
"Saturday Night Live." She's presenting with Sam Worthington, who whips
out a pair of glasses to read the Teleprompter. They introduce only the
night's third live entertainment. It's a modern dance troupe, and
they're good. But I don't understand. They scrapped the nominee salute
and more live stuff but kept the dancing? It doesn't make any sense.
Even Debbie Allen at home, is like, "Huh?" The show is all over the
place. Michael Giacchino wins for the waltzes in "Up." Oh, hey, Gerard
Butler and Bradley Cooper, two of our least necessary movie actors, to
present best visual effects to "Avatar." One of the winners thanks the
moviegoers who, presumably, have helped put his kids through college
about 40 times. In other news, I do like Cooper's vest. That might
actually be necessary.
