Gotham is just too darkly dystopian for my tastes, ...

...reminds me of the real world on steroids ...aka The World According to Grump. ;0)

I'm with you on eye candy, but what's with the sun never shining on Gotham. Also, it seems like everyone's either mentally unstable or corrupt in this world, ...again, too much reality TV for me.

At least the Oscars were entertaining, not so much the award speeches, but the star reactions and the host's repartee with the audience and viewers. Even the commercials (60 second films made from a Walmart checkout receipt) were clever. The major screw-up at the close was actually handled pretty well by everyone involved.

Do the Academy Awards still need work? Sure. The event could be shortened, perhaps broken into two ceremonial nights, one in January and one in February ...with major awards in both to keep the viewers tuned in. Splitting off crowd pleasers from art films similar to what was intended way back in the Academy first started might help. I think two two-hour shows would go down better than one that stretches into four-hours. Knocking off one of the superfluous Guild or Critics Award shows leading up to the Oscars would make room for it. My 2 cents (inflation adjusted)
