I know...I used this picture of me with Oscar last year...but it's the only one I have of me with the statue...and I do dig my clear shoes and but I continue to ponder on why the photographer asked me to point. Sigh...show biz can be so cruel...as will be seen tonight if you are planning on tuning in to the Academy Awards.
Side note...Everytime you turn around there is another Award Show...Didn't the Oscars used to be in March? Or April?
So tonight are the Oscars…either you are jazzed by that...or you're not. I am having a 'Welcome Home Becca" and intimate Oscar party and I am the most excited about seeing Becca return after working stint out of town.
I was able to see all the nominees this year...but I wish they would put all the documentaries on television before the awards so people could see them. So many of these small films continue to go unseen. With small budgets only those with money for advertising seem to get any attention at all.
I would warn you of a spoiler but honestly, I don't know anything. You will find me tonight thinking about the rows of heat lamps on that red carpet so the ladies wearing those sleeveless dresses aren't seen shivering underneath...(show buisness is so glamourous)... You will find me wondering if Anne Hathaway and James Franco (both of whom I really like) can pull it off as they are hired to draw in a younger crowd to watch the Oscars...I personally miss Billy Crystal, but then again, I am not that younger crowd...and I will continue to wonder why the Best Picture category has 10 nominees? Why???
Some questions just can't be answered....
a few side notes...Best Picture -The Kings Speech - Hands down to me the best picture of the year. Just for the record I did like Social Network and True Grit.
Best Director - This was a tossup between David O. Russell The Fighter and Tom Hooper The Kings Speech
Best Actor - Colin Firth, amazing
Best Actress - Annette Bening, but I think Natalie Portman will win.
Best Supporting Actor - Christian Bale...amazing transformation, he nailed it.
Best Supporting Actress - Hailee Steinfeld...I think Melissa Leo will win...but if you have seen Hailee talk in person then you know...she's a damn good actress.
Best Animated Feature Film - Toy Story 3 - I love those toys, they made me laugh out loud and cry too...
