In the aftermath of Sunday's (March 2) Academy Awards telecast, Gregory Ellwood and I took our place in the HitFix video studio to talk about the awards and the show itself.

In the video posted last night, we talked about the "12 Years a Slave"/"Gravity" split, Cate Blanchett's win and the exhaustive Oscar season as a whole.

In this video, Greg and I talk about the always problematic Oscars telecast itself, including Ellen DeGeneres' mixed bag performance as host, as well as the less impressive production elements included filler montages and a bloated In Memoriam segment.

Check out the analysis above.
