The 84th Annual Academy Awards occurred last night, and as the infamous they say:
Oh boy, did the stars come out!
But I noticed one thing that I’m sure ABC the Network wasn’t too happy about… there were a lot of NBC stars there! Current ones!
Aside from someone obvious, like Alec Baldwin of 30 Rock (he was at the one of the special events… I think the one Oprah won at), you had plenty of Thursday night’s
Must See TV Comedy Night Done Right:
Although they weren’t nominated for anything, Tina Fey of 30 Rock, Ellie Kemper of The Office, and Maya Rudolph of Up All Night were there as presenters, and:
Oh boy, did they represent!
Then when it came to Oscar nominations, you had Kristen Wiig of Saturday Night Live who was up for Best Original Screenplay:
And then the big winner was Jim Nash of Community. He won Best Adapted Screenplay for The Descendants:
The best part is this is how he usually appears on Community as Dean Pelton:
So what does this mean ultimately? NBC is consistently in last place of the four major networks, but they had the best showing at the Oscars. That’s a sign of the massive amount of talent found there that
dumb audiences aren’t finding!
CBS, which is in first, had only one star present… the Best Supporting Actress-nominated Melissa McCarthy of Mike & Molly:
But she was in the movie written by SNL star, Wiig!
In closing, here’s what NBC’s owner, Comcast, might be saying:
Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy!
This is what I’m saying:
Oh boy, Community should be sitting pretty for a while now!
