This was my first time sitting down and watching the Oscars in its entirety, so I can't really vouch for years past, but I thought it was really well done! Maybe it was the whole musical theme throughout, maybe it was Hugh Jackman, maybe it was when they had the former winners come out and give praises to this years nominees, or maybe it was because Slum Dog Millionaire took home 8 Oscars (An overwhelming victory for Mumbai, India, which up until now received little recognition.) Maybe it was the dresses! Ooooh! Fabulosa! See some below!
