Final notes -- only 32 minutes over, mainly crisp, no Cameron, some great dresses and a perhaps disappointing shortage of horrid ones (at least on stage), I liked the hosts (both of them!). And NPH.
In fact, perhaps the greatest compliment to the evening is that the Empress' mother (The Grand Empress) actually stayed up and watched the entire show which has not happened in.... possibly forever.
Thank you for playing, and good night!
Finaly tally -- I got 18 out of 24 which is FAR more respectable than any year previously. I will not reveal my sources. (Entertainment Weekly, mainly.)
