The Oscar Bowl

February 27, 2011 at 1:21 pm 6 comments

Even though I don’t consider myself a true cinephile, I love to watch the Oscars!  I consider it my Super Bowl.

I love:

1.  The red carpet fashions

2.  The opening monologue/song-and-dance routine

3.  The emotional speeches

4.  Watching people experience their most intense dreams come true

5.  Staying up late on a Sunday night!

I hate:

1.  The long, boring speeches

2.  The boring categories (although I think most of these have been moved to a pre-Oscars show)

3.  The boring commercial breaks (I am now used to watching TV through PVR.  Not being able to fast forward through commercials is just a ridiculous way to live life!) (I am such a snob).

4.  Already pretty much knowing who is going to win the main categories (Best Actor – Colin Firth; Best Actress – Natalie Portman; Best Movie – Inception or Social Network).

5.  Waking up the next morning and not remembering (or caring) who won each category

But it’s still totally worth it.

I’ve got three different kinds of potato chips (with my very favourite — Zesty Doritos — in attendance!  This ain’t no time for kale chips), dark chocolate-covered almonds, my hubby with a Film degree (excellent for informative commentary), my son who is going to experience his very Oscars telecast (that is, if he isn’t in the midst of his evening meltdown), and my expandable pants on a cold, wintery night.  I AM READY.  In the words of Charlie Sheen, “Bring it!”.

    lol, Charlie Sheen!

    I haven’t watched the Oscars in years, but I kind of want to this year for James Franco and Anne Hathaway!

      What did you think of it? I thought it was really boring, but of course I’ll watch again next year!

    Bree won over what we watched on tv last night. Didnt watch any of the Oscars… did see the one pre-show. Got to see Matthew McConaughey, so I was happy 🙂

      Ah, that’s right, I forgot about your love for McConaughey! Every time I see him, I think of his character from Dazed and Confused. Alright alright alright! lol

    ditto on the boring robs… i can’t stand the cheese factor too, the lame “scripted” jokes. kirk douglas was the funniest because it was totally natural… or at least it seemed to be. if that was scripted than that was the only part they did a good job on. although i liked when james franco dressed as a woman said charlie sheen just asked for his #. lol

      Yes, Kirk Douglas was hilarious! Did you hear Melissa Leo drop the F-bomb? I thought for sure they would censor it. Iain almost fell off the couch when he heard it. That was the most exciting part of the night.

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
