After all the gloom and doom of the day, it is easy to see why Oscar night in America can be the “something to do”. But, I still stand by my belief of not watching them. I think it is all a lot of back patting, celebrity, Hollywood-ish behavior, and I just don’t really buy into it. I don’t think the Academy has chosen the “best” actor/actress/film/etc. every year, and I think sometimes they turn the other cheek. Now, if the Nobel Peace Prize was half the show of the red carpet, maybe that would be worth watching. So instead, I made a really great scallop and garlic sauce pasta dinner, will snuggle in to read The Omnivore’s Dilemma and call it a night.
