The 2013 Oscars were dedicated to honoring a fabulous and fierce storytelling tradition: the musical. But it took watching 30 tunes belted out by A-list actors before we figured that one out (Sunday night wet-brain).

Seth MacFarlane was, as he predicted in his 2-hour long opening monologue, a mediocre host. He managed to be genuinely funny at two points in the night: 1. with the sock puppet version of Flight
, and 2. in his brilliant and simple joke about the Von Trapp Family Singers
. There's nothing like a purely amusing Sound of Music
reference to balance out all the creepy Family Guy
crap. But if they'd have gotten Christopher Plummer to sing "Eidleweiss," this would have been the best award show ever.
Since there was a ton of toe tapping and so hitting high notes, and not all of it was good, we put together a list of the musical low moments. Enjoy.
