The Oscars

Oh, whatever. Not nearly enough Jon Stewart for my liking. On a fun note, we know one of the people nominated (who will remain anonymous to protect them from being associated with a smutty enterprise like this). As they were reading the nominees, I said to the BBDD, "Do you think [person] will say, 'I want to thank [person who lives in my house] who barfed in my car all those years ago for making it stink to this day. And I want to thank the Academy for this award so that I can now afford to get a new, non-vomit-reeking car'?" Sadly the nominee did not win. But luckily we were all spared the potential embarrassment of the Famous Car Barf speech. ;)

I have not seen most of the movies (duh!) but I can tell you that I absolutely want to see Cate Blanchett in the sequel to Elizabeth. If you saw the clip of her in that movie you will know what I am saying when I say "WOW." "I too can command the wind, sir! I have a hurricane in me that will strip Spain bare!" I would seriously not be effing with Elizabeth I, y'all, and no mistake.

I also want to see Michael Clayton. Say what you will, but I heart George Clooney. I think he's lovely. Whatever on his politics or whatever, I just like his movies, and more importantly, HIM in his movies.

Based on tonight's voting I'm apparently supposed to also want to see No Country for Old Men. Someone needs to convince me, because other than the delicious Josh Brolin I'm feeling a little hesitant in the Crazy Violence Department. So feel free to weigh in.

I'd write more, but the "wrap it up" music has started and they are about to kill my microph...

You CAN see Michael Clayton! We rented it on Friday and it's fantastic.

Netflix is here. Haven't opened it. But I expect Michael Clayton will be with us this Friday night!
