John Stewart has horrible timing and was only a passable host.
I am glad "Brokeback Mountain" didn't win because of all the hype.
My predition for Best Picture that wasn't even nominated "Memoirs of a Geisha" actually won 3 Academy Awards, meaning that it won more than any other picture this year, except for "King Kong" which it tied with, another movie that I liked and probably could have been nominated for Best Picture, too.
Too many film clip montages.
Overall, it was kind of boring, except for the Best Picture upset when Nicholson read the winner.
