We are in a long march of montages, special and tech awards, and things like animated film ("Frozen") and feature documentary ("20 Feet From Stardom"). In other words, a period where it only matters if you care about "Frozen" or "20 Feet," or relished the latter's win because Miss. Darlene. Love. offered some world-class gospel in celebration. A moment then nearly topped when Kevin Spacey came out to talk about special-Oscar winners and started out in character as Frank Underwood.
