You don’t have to be a boxing aficionado to know the Oscars are Hollywood’s version of a heavyweight fight. Despite the designer dresses and Dentyne smiles, the Oscars are a bloody battle — and we’re not just talking about the millions spent on who goes home with the awards.

Couldn't agree more, Mike1eye. Not only wasn't he funny, he was downright offensive. Again and again. Even that stupid bit with the bear was offensive. Thank goodness for the DVR. We skipped over him every time after a while. Don't invite him back - ever!

I'm sorry; I may have missed the point of the Oscars. I thought the point was to commemorate the year in movies, and to celebrate and award the Academy's selections for the best in an array of categories. Would there be anything so wrong in just having a show about that? No canned jokes, pre-produced bits, gimmicks or put-ons. Maybe the original singers performing nominated songs, or clips of insights from insiders regarding nominated films or performances. Keep it kind of low-key; let the art and the artists have the spotlight.

Would that be so wrong?

Or maybe just cut to the chase and have Howard Stern be the host.
