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.
