Now THIS is what should have been shown yesterday at the Oscar's..Standing ovation to the guy who put this together...
That was absolutely brilliant.
While it was good that Skyfall won two oscars (although sad Roger Deakins was again passed over, had a feeling of Life of Pi was going to get it) and Shirley and Adele's performances were good, the tribute in a word: sucked. It wasn't bad enough that Halle Berry introduced the montage but they made sure to sprinkle clips of her throughout the montage including the pretty shoddy looking effect of her diving into the ocean. I think its plainly obvious that when they couldn't secure all of the Bonds they went with Plan B, honor the music of the series...by playing three songs and not mentioning any of the key players (Monty Norman, John Barry, etc.)
