Oscar!

I love movies and I love the Oscars.
I saw 4 of the movies nominated this year.
Only missing, There will be Blood.
It's way to long to sit in a theater.

Of those that I saw, Juno is still my favorite
and though I think Javier Bardem should definitely
win for supporting actor.
I did not like the movie,
but his performance was so convincing, that I kept looking over my shoulder
all the way home

Did I like Atonement? Ehhh!
I liked parts of it, but it isn't a movie I would want to see again,
though I might read the book sometime.

I would like to see Michael Clayton again, and not just because of hunky George Clooney either.
It was an excellent suspense story and reminded me of a John Grisham novel.
I was on the edge of my seat during most of it.

Tonight I will be rooting in my heart for Ellen Page as best actress and Diablo Cody's original screenplay
for Juno.
Win or lose, both of them have really long careers ahead of them.
That movie made me feel good for weeks, and I still chuckle when I think about it.

Right now it is a box office success and the top money maker, but then that isn't how they vote is it?

Hey it's Hollywood!

Juno really was a charming movie wasn't it?
