Erase Billy Crystal from your memory and watch Seth Rogen's opening monologue to the Independent Spirit Awards
Seth Rogen’s opening monologue to Saturday night’s Independent Spirit Awards is getting a lot of attention amongst fanboys today, especially after Billy Crystal lulled us to sleep on Sunday night. Some are saying Rogen should host the Oscars next year, but I’m not sure I agree with that. After you watch his monologue, it’s clear Rogen doesn’t feel comfortable up there, nor does it look like he even wants to be there. But that’s what makes him so great as the host; his flippant attitude. That’s not something that would serve you well as host of the Oscars. In fact, outside of the Independent Spirit Awards, I’m not sure that would work well at all. But it is funny and definitely worth the watch, especially if you’re a Rogen fan.
As for the actual awards show, THE ARTIST practically won everything, just like at every other awards show. It won Best Feature, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Cinematography. So for all the talk about them being different, they basically voted the same as The Oscars.
