Worst: Returning to 'And the winner is...'
Done with little fanfare, but certainly noticed by many Oscar watchers, the producers reversed over 20 years of show protocol by having presenters announce the recipient with the phrase "and the winner is." This was one way to make the Academy Awards like any other show and was a rude way to make it all seem that much more competitive. One presenter who wouldn't make the switch was later year's Best Actress winner Kate Winslet who clearly said "and the Oscar goes to" before announcing Jeff Bridges for Best Actor. Way to go Kate!
