The Oscars are on tomorrow night! I love watching them. I've watched them for as long as I can remember.
Some Oscar trivia for you:
(However, Shirley's Oscar was an honorary one.)
George Burns was the oldest Oscar winner when he won as Best Supporting Actor for "The Sunshine Boys." at age 80 (in 1976).
I think the only one of those movies I've seen is "Driving Miss Daisy" - I really need to watch more old movies.
"Titanic" (1997) and "Ben-Hur" (1959). All three movies won 11 statuettes.
Again I've only seen LOTR and Titanic.
Of the 10 2011 Best Picture Nominees, I've only seen "Toy Story 3", "Inception" and "The Social Network". I've heard nothing but great things from friends who have seen "The King's Speech" and most people I know didn't really like "Black Swan" - I'm sensing a nomination simply because the movie has some shock value or something. I'm guessing "The King's Speech" will win based on the buzz I've heard about it.
I've seen 2 of the nominated films for Best Documentary, "Gasland" and "Exit Through The Gift Shop" - loved them both (even if they both pissed me off a little - documentaries are suppose to get your blood pumping a little I think).
And then there's the red carpet! Can't wait to see what everyone is wearing.
Some of my all time favorites:
Kate - always looks amazing. I have a slight girl crush on her.
Michelle Williams - Kudos for wearing something besides black, white or red.
And Grace Kelly because she's Grace Kelly.
And then there's the bad...... (mostly from the late 80's, early 90's - SHOCKING I know)
I won't even put the Bjork swan catastrophe on, that's a given, haha!
Happy Popcorn and Movies everyone!
