    I tried to watch it. Turned it off. It wasn't Shatner playing Kirk, it was Shatner playing Shatner in Kirk drag.

    That was a problem because he did not act like Kirk. I blame it on the circumstances of the skit.

    All that means is that the Oscars took place in the Prime universe, duh.

    "it was Shatner playing Shatner in Kirk drag."

    One could say the same thing about his performance in Trek V. Shatner's inner sense of who Kirk is doesn't deviate much from himself. It takes a strong director to reign him.
