Am I the only one that thought he looked bad? His head kept bobbing up and down and sometimes it seemed like his speech was a bit slurred.

Re: Captain Kirk At The Oscars!

It would have been funny if Chris Pine presented an award later in the show, then Shatner as future Kirk could come back "on screen" and give Pine some tips on how to REALLY present an award. Lots of jokes could have been made there. That would have been good! Although I'm not sure the Oscar writers could have pulled it off.

Actually, Pine and Saldana did present some technical awards later in the broadcast, but they didn't interact with Shatner.

Yeah, that was another missed opprotunity. It was also weird for the orchestra to play the Goldsmith theme when Pine and Saldana came out.

Personally, I loved the bit with WS. Bravo, Seth McFarland! Kirk may have caused yet another temporal anomaly, but it was totally worth it.

If McFarland does the Oscars again next year, he should do the same bit, but with Patrick Stewart.

He may not have had much time to prepare... but I too thought he looked a bit off (and not due to age, but his delivery).

It's well known that Seth McFarlane is a Star Trek fan, having incorporated quite a few Star Trek references into his work. So, it was pretty understandable (and hilarious) for Shatner to show up on screen in uniform. It had a lot of potential, but to me it fell kind of flat.

Re: Captain Kirk At The Oscars!

Not a huge Shatner fan. Not a fan of Seth MacFarlane, buttttt...this skit was hilarious!!!! I kept yelling to my wife that this skit was really long! I can't believe how much screen time they gave them. Particularly funny was Shatner's concerned yet dismissive tone. Anyway, "Ted" was one of the worst movies I'd seen in years. The Oscars are a relatively tedious self-congratulatory affair but Seth actually kept it moving along quite well. Thank goodness for the fast forward button.

Well that should end the debate which music is more associated with Trek to the "general audience".

Pfft, I'll take any excuse to hear the Goldsmith theme played in real time in front of a global audience.

The first thing Seth should have said to Captain Kirk was: "Aren't you dead?"

Hmm...considering that there soon will be a sequel to "Star Trek Academy" (or was it "Star Trek Troopers"?) I can't shake the feeling that Bill Shatner's participation at the Academy Awards wasn't entirely coincidental or maybe even some kind of "statement" which Captain Kirk the Academy members do prefer.
