I didn’t watch the Oscars last night. Does that make me un-American, or just someone too tired to stay up until midnight or later to watch people win prizes for movies I haven’t seen? I read the results this morning, and it all looks good to me. I’m glad Denzel and Halle won, and maybe next year we can get back to looking at the quality of the acting, and not get all caught up in the color of the actors. Yes, I can appreciate what a big night it was for them to win Best Actor and Actress, but by making a big deal of it, it will continue to be perceived as something “different” instead of something they deserved to win on merit. Or something like that. I’m just babbling.
I did see Gosford Park, and loved it, but I didn’t have any hopes that it would win.
