Red Carpet Time!


I love the Academy Awards, and I’m not sure why. Pure escapism is my guess. It’s not like I really have any choices this year for best picture or anything. I just love the drama and the tension. I try not to think about how much it all costs and for what. I put my politics outside the door for an evening and splurge on red carpet silliness and campy Hollywood humor.

It is, after all, my job to watch the human condition and all its warts.

    Until I put my glasses on, I thought you were talking about the GOP primaries. You must admit that Santorum would look simply divine in a red-carpet sweater vest!
    Personally, I think “Best Of” awards of any kind are a bit silly. How can anyone/thing be The Best? I think everyone should get a gold-plated statuette and then go off and have a giant orgy. Now that would get ratings! I think the GOP nominees should do the same. Except no one would want to watch.
