Oscars Review

Did you watch the Oscars last night; all the pretty stars,
Strolling the red carpet after stepping from their cars?
Stunning gowns and jewelry; the men in evening dress...
Overall, it seemed to me, the night was a success.

Seth MacFarlane was the host and he was very good.
After watching Family Guy  I didn't think he could
Manage to get through the night without becoming crude;
Half afraid the audience would turn and he'd get booed.

But, thank goodness, Captain Kirk returned to save the day
(Hope the Federation will increase the Captain's pay.)
There were no surprises in the winners of the night
And, in my opinion, the Academy was right.

Hathaway's performance as Fantine inspired chills;
Argo  won Best Picture due to Affleck's growing skills;
Lewis won for Lincoln  and Ang Lee won one as well.
(Musical performances by Streisand and Adele...

Of the many moments that I loved, sock puppets wins
Flight  scene recreated by a dryer as it spins.)
Still, the glitz and glamour - that's what Hollywood's about -
And there's nothing like a night when all the stars come out.
