Some people make New Year’s resolutions. I make Oscars resolution. Every year I swear that I’m going to go see more movies in the theater. And every year when the award night rolls around, I haven’t seen almost any of them. Best Picture? Haven’t seen any. Best Actor? Nope. Best Actress? Uh, no. Neither of the supporting ones, either.
In fact, if you look at the list of Oscar Nominations,you have to scroll all the way down to Sound Editing to find Iron Man, which I saw only because it’s already out on Netflix. And I might add, that I thought the editing in general was horrible. So what do I know?
Iron Man was also nominated for Visual Effects, for whatever that’s worth. The effects were pretty cool.
So I am sitting here watching the famous and pretty being interviewed on the red carpet, and my main question is: Melissa Leo? WTF? I want to think that you haven’t succumbed to the Hollywood plastic surgeons, but …. Oh my. You don’t even look like the same person we all crushed on when you starred on “Homicide.”
I really need to get out of the house more often.
