Worst: That was the 007 tribute we were waiting for?
The Academy and ABC hyped up four things before Oscar night to try and get young men to watch: Seth McFarlane, an appearance by an animated Ted, The Avengers "reunion" and a 007 tribute. That tribute consisted of just an edited montage of Bond movies footage introduced by Halle Berry ("Die Another Day") and Dame Shirley Bassey singing "Goldfinger." Later on Adele sung her Oscar-winning "Skyfall" track, but that was it. Not even Daniel Craig in attendance. Egad.
