While I certainly enjoyed the moving shout-out to Sally Field by Anne Hathaway ("Les Miserables"), the rest of her speech was so self-serving. I am pulling for her to keep winning but would like to see more warmth and less of the other.
I thought Jackman's speech would serve as a launching pad for a possible Oscar surprise, but it was straightforward and dull.
