Worst: Terrence Howard's Weirdness
As is the tradition with Oscars broadcasts, we got several great actors getting up to run down the Best Picture nominees. Terrence Howard had the incredible honor – he certainly thought so – of introducing Whiplash, The Imitation Game and Selma. Great movies one and all, but the actor introduced them with the kind of emotional, deeply impressed rambling that could only result from someone partially reading off the teleprompter, partially ad-libbing and thoroughly unable to catch his breath. Though his enthusiasm for each film was moving, the sheer level of it was just confusing. Does he think there's an Oscar for best introduction of an Oscar category?
