Pitch a tent, put on a show.
Formal, but cabaret loosey goosie.
Drinks? A gay men’s chorus, love fests for nominees, surprises, without all the time limits and Gravitas.
Aubrey Plaza hosting and covering a Judy Garland hit?
There’s more wit and warmth in this opening than the Oscars have managed in decades.
Look at the last post of video with Laura Dern being celebrated in song and tell me you wouldn’t rather be in the tent!
