I’d like to thank the Academy…

February 23, 2009

For those of you who watch American Idol I finally figured out who Danny Gokey looks like…Robert Downey, Jr.! It came to me as I was watching the red carpet arrivals at the Oscars last night. It has been bugging me and then pow! There it was. Do you agree or am I crazy? I think it’s a little freaky actually.

I enjoyed the ceremony this year, actually. I thought Hugh Jackman was great. I loved how the past award winners came out and talked directly to the nominees and got them all teary and googly-eyed and awestruck. I loved Anne Hathaway and Kate Winslet especially. And Angelina’s earrings were spectacular–course, her date’s not bad either. I thought everyone who should win, did win. Yes, even Sean Penn–probably because he made me laugh at how even he admits how hard it can be to like him. But if you can separate the man from the actor, he deserved it.

At least that’s what I hear–I don’t see movies the Academy likes to nominate; first off, I have a 3-yr old and a 9-yr old…we either watch Wow Wow Wubzy or iCarly most nights. Secondly, when my honey and I do go to the movies, he will say “Sure honey, let’s go see that one about the wrestler, or that one about the Indian kids.” Then, when we are actually getting ready to go, he changes his mind. “Wait a minute. It’s subtitled? In Hindi?! Yea, that’s not gonna happen. I don’t care that half the world has seen it and loved it. I hate subtitles. Let’s go see that new James Bond. Or how about Mall Cop? That looked really funny.” Welcome to my life.

So yea, I heard Sean Penn deserved it. He did look really good in the commercials.
