So, not a bad show. The definite highlight was Leo DiCaprio finally winning his Oscar. The look of love that Kate Winslet gave him just killed me. It was amazing. I ended up with 10 correct answers out of the 16 that I had picked winners for. Which is pretty good. Hope you enjoyed the show, can't wait till next year!
