Worst - Ellen's obsession with twitter
Sure, social media is a topical reference, but did Twitter secretly sponsor the Oscars this year or something? Host Ellen DeGeneres worked references to Tweeting and hashtags into roughly half of her jokes, way beyond the point of funny. The group photo that crashed Twitter -- which featured half of Hollywood, including the host, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep and others -- was fun, but DeGeneres could've picked another topic for the rest of her material.
