Although there has been mixed reviews of his hosting performance, there are strong opinions that Billy Crystal’s monologue to open the 84th annual Academy Awards shows why he has hosted the show nine times.
The monologue was a combination of great films of 2011 with him featured in each one, and then he broke into his signature Oscars song. It even included a guest appearance from my personal favorite star, Justin Bieber!
Crystal joked about the change of name from the Kodak Theatre and millionaires handing each other gold statues during the recession. No matter what anyone thinks, the constant laughs from the A-list audience prove that he was entertaining!
