The Oscars will air live tonight at 5PT/8ET. I used to watch them every now and then, but I am not THAT into them or anything. I checked out the nominations for the heck of it and hadn’t really seen ANY of the movies! I really wanted to see Juno and Atonement and hopefully will soon, I tried to watch Gone Baby Gone just a few days ago upon hearing a lot of people talk about it. People were getting into deep discussions over what they would have done. So I was curious and I like Ben Affleck (he directed the film) so I really wanted to see it, but it was SOOOO depressing and just too much to stomach. The little girl looked so much like little Madeleine McCann and that was just too much to take. My kids though have seen Ratatouille and loved it, so I hope that wins for Animated Feature Film. 🙂
Anyway, The Barbara Walters Special looks good. I know that Miley Cyrus will be on it. I am too old to understand that phenomenon, but it certainly does seem to be quite a phenomenon! The other people that Barbara will be sitting down with will be Ellen Page (the star of Juno), Vanessa Williams and Harrison Ford.
Note: Please don’t get mad at me for the picture of Heath and Michelle. I didn’t want to use a generic picture of the Oscar golden statue…I thought this pic of Heath and Michelle at the 2006 Oscars was so sweet.
