I didn't. In fact, they weren't even on my radar until they kept popping up on things like Twitter.

I saw two things that stuck. First of all someone asked Ricky Gervais what his first joke would have been had he been asked to host. He replied.

“I can’t wait to hear all your inspirational speeches about equality, and it’s great that the 3 hours you’re here tonight is the only time your badly paid migrant house staff will get some time off to sleep this week”

I also saw a headline this morning which said "Oscar winners get political on Tinseltown's big night, bashing Trump, praising Marx and lecturing America" So that sounds like business as usual.

I don't know who won what as I wrote this and no - that's not because I had a Christmas party to go to last night either.

So did you watch?
