The following commentary is from an investment professional with Clear Harbor Asset Management who is a participant in TheStreet's expert contributor program.NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I could sense desperation in the air on Sunday night as "The Academy" dusted off nine-time Oscar host Billy Crystal to take the stage once again at Hollywood's biggest awards ceremony in the house that he called "Chapter 11 Theater." It was the Kodak Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, of course. Actually, it's now apparently called the Hollywood & Highland Theater because Eastman Kodak (EKDKQ.PK) recently requested in bankruptcy court to remove its name from the iconic home of the Oscars on the grounds that it was no longer worth its $70 million-plus price tag.
