The 78th Annual Academy Awards, Hosted by Jon Stewart So I decided to finally sit down and watch this year. Are they always this boring? Jon Stewart's doin alright, but you can tell the actors don't like being made fun of, so it looks like he kinda holds back on some of his jokes. Ben Stiller's presentation with the 'green screen suit' was kinda dumb, Dolly Parton (Pardon?)'s song was pretty good, but overall this has been a very forgettable program.
