Mr. Miyagi kicked off a sub-par In Memoriam this year. There were no guaranteed deceased celebrities to bring the house down– no sure things. Sure, Anne Bancroft got a few cat calls, but nobody really stood out. I was pulling for the underdog, The Guy Who Yelled ‘Get Off My Train’ in “Ghost,” but it just wasn’t his year.
And did anybody else kind of expect them to include paretheses for Chris Penn that read “(you know, Sean’s brother)” to get him more applause?
And finally, the question on everybody’s mind: Where was Don Knotts? Too soon? Apparently.
