I am very excited to be in the same time zone as the Oscars this evening. Even though I haven’t seen a film in the cinema since 2007. It’s the glamour and the famous folk and the frocks and the glimpses of handsome men and beautiful women and this year we’ve even been promised some song and dance numbers. Squee!
I have been invited to an Oscar Party tonight (just round at someone’s house, not one of those in a marquee in Hollywood where you might fall over Courtney Love in the coat check). But I’m quite sickly today and I’m not sure if I’ll make it. So instead of entering my predictions into the ballot at the party. I’ll list them here. Like I said this is a pretty random indicator as I haven’t seen any of these films.
Best Supporting Actress – Marisa Tomei “The Wrestler”
