87th Academy Awards – the night of the obvious

87th Academy Awards

The 87th Academy Awards ceremony might not be like its predecessors, but it sure still managed to captivate the audience till a certain extent. There were a few moments form the Oscars which stood out, as the most   boring obvious acts. Oscar nights are usually lively, and with Neil Patrick Harris at the helm of the Oscars for the first time this year, things looked perfect. But alas, even Harris could not make up for the bad direction and the flawed script.

Lackluster show during the 87th Academy Awards ceremony

The opening of the 87th Academy Awards was a musical, which was both dramatic and amusing at times, which the audience are used to, it was nothing new. His spoof of Birdman was rather embarrassing in terms of directions. When Harris came out onto the stage in his full glory, the cameras was on everyone else except on the people who were associated with Birdman. There were no reaction shots. There was only one shot of Michael Keaton, but it very late to get a reaction from him.
