84th Academy Awards

Happy late Monday. How was everyone's weekend? Mine was rather slow and filled with work.

As everyone knows, I simply LOVE movies and that means I can't WAIT for the Oscars (Academy Awards). I love seeing all the dresses, tuxedos, different snip-bits from movies, and all the glamour. It's my secret dream to one day be up on that stage with a little golden man in my hands and thanking everyone for my victory. Wouldn't you love to be up on that stage?

Billy Crystal was the host and he was...okay. Not his funniest performance. However, the most memorable thing said belongs to him, " So tonight, enjoy yourselves because nothing can take the sting out of the world's economic problems like watching millionaires present each other with golden statues." I was laughing like a loon!

Obviously Hugo and The Artist were big winners. I haven't seen many of these movies this year...but I plan too one day. haha.

Overall, it was an enjoyable celebration of movies and I can't wait for next year at the 85th! Woot woot!

hahaha yeahh...The Artist seems to quiet for my taste. I don't like silent films. I'm sorry. haha But Hugo looks good. The little boy from 'Boy in the Stripped Pajamas' is in it!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more
than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.

However think of if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more,
"pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
this blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche.

Terrific blog!
