Billy’s schtick and Jolie’s pin
Billy Crystal’s old-school turn as Oscar host received mixed reviews, but the viewing figures were up slightly.
There has, however, been much online kerfuffle about certain references to race in Crystal’s routines. He donned blackface to imitate Sammy Davis Jr in the opening montage and made reference to hugging black women after viewing The Help. Most of the chatter has, however, been to do with Angelina Jolie’s right leg.
She inclined it at a certain provocative angle, you see. We’ve never seen the like.
