So now that the Oscars are over the critics are hard at work. Ellen Degeneres hosted the Academy Awards last night and got mixed reviews from critics. I personally thought she was funny but it was obvious she was really nervous. My favorite part of the show had to be when Ellen asked Clint Eastwood for a Myspace pic. Classic!

Here's what the critics had to say:

• "You know it's going to be a long night when Al Gore's the funniestperson in the room. ... Ellen DeGeneres's lowest-key performance made fora slow, slow show."
– Bill Goodykoontz, the Arizona Republic

• "[Ellen] was cheeky but good-natured, far less barbed and sardonic thanJon Stewart last year or Chris Rick in 2005. ... As she sometimes does onher daytime talk show, Ms. DeGeneres cruised the aisle with a microphone,chatting idly with Martin Scorsese and Clint Eastwood – bringing a casualFriday mood to Fancy Sunday."
– Alessandra Stanley, The New York Times
