At least the writer strike ended in time for one of my FAVORITE things on Television. Tonight @ 8pm on ABC . The Oscars.

I love this event, not just for the actual Oscars, but, the Red Carpet on the E channel before the event, and the fashion police celebrity bashing that occurs the next day.

What was YOUR favorite movie this last year? Was it even nominated? Who are you hoping walks away with the trophy?

9 thoughts on “The Oscars 2008.

  1. Are you going to live blog it? 😉 I am recording it to DVR so I can watch it on time delay without commercials (and if I time it right also without the boring speeches)

  2. I’ve been annoyed at the Oscars since “Titanic” took everything home that one year.

    But I always watch or at least follow what’s happening. A friend of mine has an Oscar party every year!

    Anyways, the only movie I’ve seen on that list is “Juno” and I LOVED it! I want it to win something!

    Live blogging it sounds kinda fun.

  3. I have a friend that throws an Oscar party too. I’ve never gone though.

    Live Blogging can be fun…but its hard too. (and its Sunday…who wants to work that hard on a Sunday?)

  4. I gave up watching award shows a long time ago. However, I HAD to leave you this message:

    I personally–PERSONALLY–know someone who is in the movie ‘Into The Wild.’ I don’t believe he has a HUGE part–I haven’t seen the movie and am not even sure it has been in the theaters here locally yet. I guess he is a friend of Sean Penn and gets cast in his movies. Interesting, no? 🙂 (He also is a personal assistant to Lars Ulrich of Metallica fame. QUITE a journey the young man has made from here in the Great White North! :))

  5. Well, I taped the Oscars and had them on in the background while I was online. I haven’t watched any of it. I think the H and I are going to watch and fast forward through all the speeches, performances, and presentations.

  6. CMK:

    That is amazing.

    Jillian:

    I fell asleep it was sooooooo boring. John Steward was funny, but the show was a snooze fest.
