I love movies.

When I'm traveling, which is often, one of my favorite things is getting back to my hotel room, ordering room service and a movie. No matter how long the day has been or how tired I am watching a movie recharges everything. I even love previews.

Here 's the geek part....movies are just magic for me. I don't like them all, but I appreciate them and what it takes to get one made. I am equally a geek about the people that work on them and not just the ones that get all the press. People that make their living crafting films are a rare breed and the Academy Awards represent a ginormous celebration of this awesome art form.

No snarky comments or cynicism here. There's plenty of that on all sorts of entertainment shows, blogs and magazines. I have an unabashed love for this celebration of one of my favorite art forms.

A room that houses, Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers, Katherine Bigelow, Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Kathy Bates, Mo'Nique, James Cameron, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tina Fey, Tom Ford, Colin Firth, Kate Winslet, Nick Hornby, Morgan Freeman, Christopher Waltz, Lee Daniels, etc., can only garner goose bump moments for me!
I could go on and on but I will save you from further examples of my movie dorkiness.

Many congrats to all in the Kodak Theater that work in the medium of film and to all those that work in film without the recognition.

I'm with you there, Angelo. There's nothing like room service and a good movie to chill one out. I always find myself anlysing the set designs, though!

I couldn't agree more. How great is Sandra Bullock! SO GREAT. Loved her and her speech. I wish they all could have won. I LOVE The Daily Tip.

I loved the show. I thought it was wonderful and I agree, it's just a lovely opportunity to celebrate film and creativity.

Being such a big fan of the Movies, I do hope next year someone from the Academy has the courtesy to send you some tickets. :)

I agree with your congratulation sentiments to those that are behind the scenes. Without 'them' the Movies and such an extravaganza just wouldn't be.

I really loved the Oscars. I actually love them even in bad years. Next year, you should totally get an invite. I'm not going to be "snarky" but what was up with some of the Red Carpet coverage!? Have they not watched TDT? Please cover the Red Carpet next season.

James said...

OK, I too will try to not be snarky. Yes, PLEASE let's figure out Red Carpet coverage. Who are these people that are so awful covering the pre and after show? Can TDT can on this?

James said...

Meant, "get on this?" I am obviously very frustrated with red carpet reporting. LOL.
