The 91st Annual Academy Awards Show (or The Oscars if you prefer that title) just finished and I’m pleased to share the list of winners with all of you readers. The program was launched by Queen + Adam Lambert and they delivered the bands seminal “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions” from the “News Of The World” album. I had to laugh when I saw a friend comment on his Facebook status that more Rock was represented at the beginning of The Oscars than the sum total of the recent Grammy Awards broadcast. Sadly, he was 100% correct. I posted about the live performance over on PiercingMetal HERE if you didn’t see it. There was no official host for the show and this aspect was poked fun at on a few occasions. Now, the envelope please……and The Oscar goes to….
