I will admit that I am an award show fanatic and always have been. I love the clothes, the speeches the grandness of it all. Side note...on my list of things to do before I die is to be in the grandstand at the Golden Globes to watch the celebrities arrive (it could happen right). Anyway, I will be watching tonight and taking notes for as long as I can stay awake. The only problem with the Oscars nowadays is that it is rare that I have seen any or all of the movies that are nominated. I like simplistic films. I am not an arthouse kind of girl. The year of Titanic, loved it because I loved all of the movies. I saw Saving Private Ryan and Shakespeare in Love and Elizabeth the year that they were nominated. But now it is all these weird, crazy, silent movies that I just can't wrap my head around. I did watch Moneyball last night and I have seen Bridesmaids (who hasn't) but that is about it. I wanted to see the Help but I loved the book so much that I am having trouble sitting down to watch the movie. So I will watch tonight and try to get excited about movies I have never seen and watch speeches given by people I have never heard of. This does not mean that I will not judge the outfits though.
