T.J. Walker, president of Media Training Worldwide, cites Joaquin Phoenixs acceptance speech for Best Actor, saying it was about as memorable as an airline attendant instructing someone how to put a seatbelt on.
He also calls Cecil B. DeMille award winner Anthony Hopkins speech just a snooze and was especially disappointed because, Here is a guy who knew he was speaking.
Walker thinks Mary Louise Parkers spacey speech left much to be desired, and speculates she didnt prepare because she figured she didnt have a chance against the army of hotties from Desperate Housewives.
It may all sound harsh, but Walker says he holds celebrities to high standards because, Theyre being paid tens of millions of dollars to be public speakers.
In his opinion, the money speech of the night came from Geena Davis, who mocked herself, politics and award shows and thanked all the appropriate people in under a minute.
