  1. Why the h— is the pizza guy at the Oscars part of any story? Oh, how kind, the great and powerful movie actors allow a lowly pizza guy to serve them. I wonder if the elitist left would think Wall Street moguls as generous if they had a pizza guy serve them during one of their meetings. Utterly ridiculous, the amount of press this is getting.

    • The curse of US media, I guess. Take something insignificant and make it a huge deal.

      No wonder most Americans are starting to shy away from TV in recent years and either catch highlight clips of talk shows on Youtube or read alternative and non-mainstream news websites (two of the things I noticed have become increasingly popular amongst US citizens since 2010).

      I’d say it’s the same in the UK too but thankfully, it isn’t. Tried to be but the public slapped that down and media reverted back to what we were used to.

  2. “Adele Azzim”

    Either Travolta was reading a typo from the teleprompter. Or he needs to start wearing glasses.

  3. Have to say, I’ve had the Punch Out theme in my head for years anyway but hearing it acapella like that was brilliant.
