The Oscars was on the other night. I don't remember much of it because it was a bore fest from the get go. They make such a big deal about the Oscars. They had a pre-show that lasted from 9am - 3pm and then the red carpet from 3pm - 5:30pm. The show started a little past 5:30pm and ended 30min over schedule at 9pm.

All day of Oscar hype and it was snooze fest. Even the music was terrible. I think if they had some decent perfomances by famous musicians than I think the show would be more tolerable. But no that's not how the Academy works. They're elegant and classey, which means they're big bores. As in lame.

There are only three awards you're looking forward to the whole time. Best Actor. Best Actress. Best Movie. That's it, well maybe Best Director too. But you have to sit through three hours of best lighting, best music editing, best film editing, best set design, etc. Real boring shit.

I kinda wished that the strikes would be still in full affect so that way we wouldn't have to go through with all these award shows. Even though I think this one would have happened either way.

Ah yes celebs getting recognized for their fine work. Why couldn't the fans get awards. Like best movie release watcher, or best popcorn butter squirter, some shit or best movie ticket tearer. No love for the people that allow Hollywood to prosper.
