One great benefit of living in the west

"And the Oscar goes to..." I had forgotten how much fun it is to watch the entire show live without having to stay up until the wee hours. It was always anti-climactic when living on the east coast to watch most of the show, but abandon the key awards for sleep and then read about it in the paper the following day.

Loved the glitz and the glamour. My ten-year-old watched along with me, cheering for Hugo all the way. I was thrilled that Meryl Streep won Best Actress and adored the intro by Colin Firth.

 Now I look forward to seeing the few films of the Best Picture list that I have not yet seen.

What did you think of the Oscars?


  1. LOVED the Oscars! Colin introducing Meryl was awesome "We were in Greece, I was gay, we were happy...." I look forward to it every year.
