I appreciated Bill Murray's mention of Harold Ramis during his Oscar presentation. I expected Harold to be drowned out by adulation for Shirley Temple, but all she got was a mention in the "people who died this year" montage. So he actually got more recognition.
I don't usually bother with the Oscars, as I don't go to many movies and have a fairly modest appetite for spectacle, but I'm glad I watched this year if only for Ellen DeGeneres, who is always a delight. I'd pretty much watch her just sit in a chair for an hour and a half.
