Yeah, I know! How stereotypical that I love the Oscars! Oooooh, that's so gay!
But I love the clothes, though I miss Cher in her headresses and Bjork The Swan, and some of those others who look like they were dressed by Sears, but there will be someone who will look the fool......I'm talkin' to you Gwynneth Paltrow. There will be others who look stunning....Kate Winslet.
And there will be boring acceptance speeches, and funny ones, too; and maybe some to make you tear up.
Someone will win something and you'll wonder who in the hell they are; or you'll wonder why your favorite didn't win.
But best of all, at least this year, is that the ceremony is being emceed by Mister Hugh Jackman.........and his Huge Ackman--special thanks to Jack McFarland for the line.
I have been saying this for days to Carlos and he ready to remove my vocal chords.
And of course, I will be doing the intros for Carlos during the show. Who is that? What is that? Why is that?
I love the Oscars because I love movies. Movies are The Great Visual Escape, like books are The Great Mental Escape. And I love all sorts of both. Funny. Dramatic. Heartbreaking. Sad. Romantic. Thrilling. Adventuresome.
These are just a few of my favorite films over the years:
Diana Ross as Billie Holiday in Lady Sings The Blues:
Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain:
Katherine Hepburn and Henry Fonda in On Golden Pond:
Helen Mirren in The Queen:
