Oscars - 10:49

As we slog through the commercials, we started thinking that we're surprised the commercials are not more inventive and creative. The ad world makes a big deal out of creating the best commercials for the Super Bowl, but the Oscars' t.v. audience is ten times the size of the Super Bowl's. It's a mystery.
Back to the show. Hugh Jackman opens a segment to introduce the nominees for Best Original Score and Best Song. He's not going to sing them, is he?
The orchestra onstage plays snippets from the nominated scores. Can we just say right now: this show is going to get horrible reviews.
Zac Efron, (boy, they're milking him tonight), and Alicia Keys take the stage to give the award for Best Original Score. The winner is "Slumdog Millionaire".
