Okay, maybe I was a little harsh with yesterday’s pre-oscar rant. As a friend rightfully pointed out not all the women on the red carpet have prosthetically enhanced cleavages; and Geoff Bridges did really deserve the golden chub for best actor. But am I wrong in thinking that Demi Moore is the only woman I know who’s getting younger with age?
Actually I really enjoyed the awards ceremony, Steve Martin was hilarious and I very much enjoyed Robin Williams quip… “there will be a lot of balls held in Hollywood tonight and now the nominees for best supporting actress…”
For the second year in row Independent Films really scooped the awards which is another reminder that the riskiest, most innovative material is generally found on the edges of any industry.
I read an article during the week that the oscar winning screenwriter for the Hurt Locker had attended ten black tie “award dinners” in January. It’s a crazy world, awards are nice but the real REWARD can only be found in the work.
