I got home from work at 8:05, and immediately set the DVR to record, and watched the first 30 minutes while making dinner. Seth did a good job, fairly typical award show jokes, and some skits with front row celebs made to look spontaneous. The man on the street thing was funny for the first 20 seconds.

I have now seen about half the show, and the presenter patter is better than usual. Although some bits are made to look improvised I think it is written that way - little can be improvised in a live awards show. Even Ellen's selfie and pizza delivery had to be planned in advance.

I am almost up to the in memorium, and the top awards which usually follow, so I will report back.

Thanks for the Spoilers Kylie!

PS - the directing is pretty good. The house band up on the platform is also good, and thus far they have not played music over any speeches.

PPS - I really wish they would show a longer film clip for nominees.
