My Oscar ostracism

Why are all these little Oscars snubbing me?  Because I have seen so few new movies this year, I shouldn't even be allowed to watch the Academy Awards tonight.  I did watch "The Informant" with Matt Damon on 'On Demand' last night and enjoyed it tremendously.  (I realize it was 'so last year' but that's how I'm rolling these days.)  So, I vote for "The Hurt Locker" simply because I want a woman director to win although, the truth is, I liked the directing a helluva lot more than the movie.  I'll be rooting for "Precious," sight unseen, and George Clooney in anything because, well, he's George Clooney and always gorgeous in evening wear.

The Oscars love you, they want you to watch. They do. I'm with you on "Hurt Locker." So happy for Bigelow, but the movie left me shrugging, "So?" I'm glad she won, but I wanted "Avatar." And Babs looked so gorgeous, it was the only real high point for me.
