"The Gay Superbowl"

My father, whose business it used to be to organise massive events, was underwhelmed by the 80th Academy Awards at the Kodak Theatre last Sunday night. His views on its overall "witlessness" seem to be backed up by TV viewing figures; the worst since 1974.

Gloomy movies, the monosyllabic Coens and Tilda Swinton's taste in evening wear and acceptance speeches all seem to have contributed to the worldwide switch-off.
