I will admit the only part of the award show I watched was the opening monologue. And that five minutes and 15 seconds made me feel awkward and uncomfortable. Why were two not very funny actors hosting the entire ceremony?
And then it dawned on me: we don't need them. Sure, a controversial comedian like Ricky Gervais is great for the Golden Globes. The pre-Oscars needs all the buzz it can get.
But the Academy Awards has gotten out of hand. The most important night in Hollywood goes on way too long. Let's lose the host.
