I felt the same way when Sandra Bullock made her "witticisms" towards Jesse Eisenberg. It felt overwhelmingly patronizing to me and delivered in such broad strokes. She basically said "you're an inspiration to socially inept nerds."
Plus, nothing against Natalie Portman or her skills as an actress, but her speech felt overly formal and, well, fake (she has the award for a reason). The only thing I enjoyed about it was her shout out to Luc Besson.
Ah well, I'm tired. I would think other people would vouch for how much of a fart the actual ceremonies turned out, but some of this other stuff was just my reaction.
