I would like to hear an explanation as to why only three of the five Best Song entries were performed, yet there was a ton of time dedicated to singing other songs (and the Les Miserables song wasn't even performed in its entirety). The James Bond tribute was okay, I guess. Did we need a separate tribute to musicals that only included three musicals from the past ten years?
The tie for sound editing was pretty messed up. That's always the one category were people always admit they don't understand what it is or how to vote on it - and it ends up in a tie. Mark Wahlberg's response to the audience surprise was pretty funny. He basically shrugged and said "Hey, tough titty."
Did anyone else find it weird that the orchestra was in another building down the street? WTF?
