He rambles some more in the Thank You Cam backstage. They had to cut the video into 5 parts.

That seemed like a long and rambling speech, my party was calling on him to get off, but they wouldn't cut Bridges off.

Really wish they stuck with those nice elongated clips. I find it problematic if the supporting actors only warrant screen-time and the leading actors garner tribunal tribute. That being said, I think Bridges' rambling speeches are charming. This isn't one of his ten best performances and Clooney, Firth, and Renner are better, but this isn't a travesty.

The intros were MUCH BETTER than last year - as I expected.

yeah, and no one on the stage had won except for Tim. Odd.

The intros were nice, but I would rather have seen a host of past Oscar winners on the stage...but oh well, at least it wasn't an entire waste.

Great intro and speech.
