I think the producers may be learning that "safe and bland" is often REALLY boring. I like Anne Hathaway, but she's coming off a little too white bread....that's probably because she kind of is. Ricky Gervais is looking better and better!
Like I said, I never liked Billy Crystal or thought he was very funny, which is okay, since he thinks he's funny enough for the both of us. I thought Steve Martin was fabulous and LOVED Hugh Jackman, but no one can ever top Johnny Carson. He was the best!
RDJ and Jude were very funny. I liked their little bit more than I liked Sherlock Holmes! The dig about the hotel room with Cat Woman was awesome.
I think the song and not Gwyneth was the problem - it wasn't good for her voice. Wasn't "Country Strong" nominated for Best Song?
