Elton Slams 'Boring' Oscars
Outspoken superstar SIR ELTON JOHN has branded the Oscars on Sunday (05MAR06) "the most boring show ever" - insisting it was more like a dated game show than a glamorous extravaganza. The ROCKET MAN star is seldom impressed with the Academy Awards' ceremonies, but this year's won his vote for the worst yet. He complains, "(It was) the most boring show I have ever seen. "The Kodak Theater is absolutely the pits. It's like the set for THE PRICE IS RIGHT (game show). It lacks glamour." John's criticism of the Oscars is nothing new - in 2005 he labelled the ceremony "predictable" and in 2004 criticised the Academy for awarding the Best Original Song trophy to ANNIE LENNOX, saying, "I don't think it deserved to (win)."
