Media Training Worldwide president TJ Walker says Best Actor Philip Seymour Hoffmans speech wasnt awful, but hed still give him a C- grade because he had way too many nervous ums and for some inexplicable reason he held a piece of paper over his eyes and created a Carnac the Magnificent from Johnny Carson days effect.
Robert Altman fared slightly better with a C grade, but Walker says, He started by referencing that he didnt have much time to make his speech, which is always a boring, time-wasting thing to do.
George Clooney was given a B and praised for NOT making a tasteless joke about former uber-lobbyist Jack Abramoff like he did at the Golden Globes.
If anyone should be proud, its Best Actress Reese Witherspoon, who got an A+ from Walker. He notes, Witherspoon had obviously given some real thought to her speech.
