Comedienne Elayne Boosler asked on her Facebook page, "Is there yet born a producer bold enough, brave enough, radical enough, to produce an awards show without steps onstage? So women in model airplane stand shoes aren't shaking by the time they speak? Do they think we care how people in show business look going down steps? 'Hey! Mollie Ringwald nailed 'em! I give it a 10!'"

I think it's the awards show equivalent of NASCAR. You know most of what you're watching will be mind-numbingly boring, but you're secretly hoping there'll be a spectacular crash.

"...the flawed portrayal of EOD and the other (to the civilian eye) seemingly minor mistakes, such as soldiers in the wrong uniforms, using poor tactics, and ranks that don't accurately correspond to the leadership being shown. This equates to something larger than just a series of careless errors: it is disrespectful."

-Paul Rieckhoff, executive director and founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, in Newsweek commentary on the film The Hurt Locker.
