A montage of the nominees work danced by a Legion of Extraordinary dancers. Huh... I feel like they tried this back in the 1990s and it didn't work then. Does it work now?
My ear doesn't automatically tune to the music, I'm much more story driven, however, I do recall liking this score. And, I kind of loved Michael's speech. Being creative is not a waste of time. It's not. It's what makes life worth living.
Now I'm going with nope. Though the dancers are uniformly excellent. I just don't get it.
