 I didn't do too badly, if I do say so myself.  Too bad I didn't have any money on it.

Few thoughts:

  • Did you see:  Jamie Foxx and Kate Hudson do the "Bump" in Pharrell's performance?
  • Best speech:  Lupita Nyong'o
  • Worst bit:  Pizza for the audience
  • What the?:  I don't know what John Travolta said when he introduced this performer, but it wasn't "Idina Menzel."  
  • Ellen:  overall, she did a good job, but honestly, I think all hosting jobs should go to Neil Patrick Harris.
