Study: Internet Overwhelmingly Approves Of Oscars Telecast

***(Special guest post from Some Guy Daily News)***

INTERNET-As per usual with any widely televised awards show, last night's Oscar telecast was a smashing success according to Twitter and Facebook users. While it's hard to imagine the marathon of egregious backslapping and self-fellatio being met with any sort of disdain, the Internet again served as a beacon of positivity when it comes to not-at-all vapid and totally meaningful awards ceremonies. Host Billy Crystal was universally hailed as original and hilarious, making jokes about J. Edgar Hoover and prescription drugs that increase urinary flow.

"That was the fastest three-and-a-half hours of my life!" Tweeted viewer Ray Garces enthusiastically. "What a joy to watch! That's definitely reached 'Save Until Delete' status on my DVR. I can't wait to watch it 5 more times."

"It's nice to see the Oscars remain not a complete waste of time!" said Beth Jenkins in a Facebook status update.

Crystal faced a tall order when living up to the rave reviews co-hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway received last year, but he surpassed expectations by keeping his act firmly in 1989 with a wildly charming, smug, self-satisfied grin on his face the entire time.

"Listen," continued Garces in a later Tweet. "It can't be as incredible as Franco and Hathaway every year. Lets keep our expectations realistic here."

"Billy Crystal was fantastic!" Jenkins said earlier. "I loved when he grinned at the camera. And when he winked at the camera. And when he smugly milked a mediocre joke for like 10 seconds. It was like he was saying, 'Aren't I hilarious?" Wasn't that joke great?' And I shouted at my TV 'YES!' You are great and you are current, Billy Crystal!"

"And  he doesn't at all look like someone wearing an oversized Billy Crystal mask. The 25-pounds of makeup used on him tonight is very flattering."

Overall, the evening was a pleasing, wholesome circle jerk for all involved.

Special thanks to Some Guy for his Oscar coverage. Check out Some Guy's Daily News site right here for more savvy and hysterical observations about the world and culture we live in!


  1. You know, I was debating whether to watch this year. It makes sick every year to watch Hollywood being so self-important and congratulating themselves for the mostly mediocre work they churn out. That said, last night was for the most part more watchable than last year's catastrophe.

    And I saw nearly all the movies in contention, that always helps ;)

  2. @Castor...the richest 1% congratulating each other with a golden statue party.

  3. Very nice guest post.

    Don't you just love the power and the positivity of the internet? From what I hear, Angelina's Right Leg has a three-picture deal and won a leprechaun for its efforts.

  4. Haha, Billy Crystal's hair looks spray-painted on.

    Heard he sang a song too, surprised he didn't break a hip.

  5. @Castor...check out Some Guy's site when you can. I think you'd really appreciate his humor.

  6. @Ty...Crystal was the safe bet for Oscar host this year. I still wish Eddie Murphy would have gotten the honors.
