The Oscars

I usually dont watch the Oscars on account of it being filled with pompous actors who love telling me who to vote for and who not to vote for.
This year I had to watch and I blame "Slumdog Millionaire"for it.
The movie was good,very realistic and made me grateful for my very sheltered upbringing!Hubby liked it so much he went back to watch the movies a few more times.
But anyway,back to the Oscars.I was very happy for cast and crew and all that they won.
An Indian movie won for best short documentary too.
So as my husband says"You are finally in fashion"!!!
The only moment I wished I was not watching was when Sean Penn started telling people his political opinions when he won.Which I think was to be expected.
Dont mix entertainment with politics,thats one of the reason most people dont watch stuff like the Oscars etc.Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican you dont want anyones political opinions shoved down your throat.

Well said Frasy. Whenever a celebrity starts spouting off like that, my first thought is "And WHY would I care what you think?"

I am so over celebrities who think they are so much smarter or MORE important than anyone else...yucky.

I watched the end to see best actor and movie. Haven't seen either of them. Well when Sean Penn was announced, that's all I needed and turned it off...I knew what was coming next.

Guess I'm way in the minority. I didn't watch the Oscar Awards, nor did I even want to! I don't really even care for movies anymore. When Hollywood went political I just gave up on all of them....which, of course, is unfair to those who aren't politically mouthy! But some of my favorite actors/actresses turned out to be such creeps I just abandoned the whole industry.

Of course, there's always the exceptions. I still haven't seen "Fireproof". That will probably be the next one I see.

Thanks for your visits to my blog. Life has been crazy around here for a few weeks. I'm way behind on reading. Hope to catch up soon.

Have a great rest of the week!!

Frasy. The biggest turnoff to me (for the very small portion I saw in the El Paso Airport) was the guy who won something....I don't even recall what, for "Milk". I was opposed to every word he spoke commending gays on being gay, and saying that no matter what your families have said, no matter what your churches have said...etc. etc. I could barely take it. Plus my heart simply grieved that we call pushing our agendas any form of worthwhile entertainment. Too many movies are nothing but an over-priced pictoral of the horrible place our nation is in. We need to return to the Lord. Sorry for stumping here!

I think I must be thinking of the guy who wrote the screenplay. Ugh.
I am most disturbed by the arrogance of Hollywood.

They bore the heck out of me, so I rarely, if ever watch.. surprising for someone in the entertainment industry, but not all of us enjoy those things.

So happy SLumdog won... it was a great movie.
