I always love the Oscars because they make me aware of the history of film going way back. I very rarely get bored. There's always some feature, some group of announcers, some splendid dress that will make watching it worthwhile. I agree that Liam Neeson was one of the high points this year. The other ones for me were all the musical performances, with Les Mis at the top. As every singer comes out and adds his or her energy to the chorus, the effect intensifies. Then there were the dances, with Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum blissfully romantic and the three guys (including Daniel Radcliffe) hoofing like grand old vaudevillians.
