Oscar Fatigue

Loved Ones - Helen had counted on doing a count down to Oscar post on Friday. Then when she couldn't crank up the enthusiasm for that she thought she'd give it a go on Saturday. Then... maybe Sunday?

So, basically the same way you approach starting a diet?

Well, as you can see it's almost Oscar time and still no new post. And there isn't going to be one. So much coverage. So many celebs. UGH. Helen is suffering PCASS -

They'll give an award to pretty much any jack@$$

Post Cinematic Award Show Syndrom! Iow, I AM SICK OF ALL THESE PEOPLE, THEIR MOVIES, THEIR BORROWED JEWELS, THEIR SPEECHES, THEIR RED CARPETS, THEIR AWARDS...

So let me get this right, you don't even DRESS yourselves but you're the ones handing yourselves accolades and getting golden statues for your hard work?

True Story, this morning my son came in glanced at the TV and said - don't tell me you're watching pre-Oscar shows ALREADY! To which I earnestly - and a bit wearily - replied: "It's not an OSACR show... it's the morning NEWS!" 
When the commentator actually referred to the OSCAR going celebs as modern gods and goddesses that the common folk hoped only to get a glimpse of... Oh Brother!

Like I'm going to stop drooling over my real love to fawn over Tommy Lee Jones?

I knew I was over the OSCARS but good. Will I check in tonight - probably. Will I worship at the foot of the flatscreen? What do you think?

See Ya in a couple days when all the hoopla dies down!

    1. LOL - I felt like no one programmed against it - the pickins was slim. I watched a rerun of old Saturday Night Live clips.

  4. Had it on, but knitted through the whole thing, so really didn't pay attention. I do love Daniel Day Lewis, but I think he's happily married, so what the hell...I'll drown my sorrows in two scoops, too! Sealtest Dairy used to be across the street from my childhood home - I wish they had had a real statue like that out front! Happy Monday, Helen...Tanya

    1. Yes a giant scoop of Sealtest and dreams of Daniel Day Lewis, that's the prize of the evening.

  5. We had the Oscars on tonight, but I was totally bored before it was halfway through. I kept asking, "Isn't this over yet?" Too much hype about a bunch of people who take themselves waaaay too seriously.

    1. I agree. Of course, I DO love Jennifer Lawrence since she is a Louisville girl and such a sweetie but when I did flip over to it I kept thinking - if they'd knock THAT junk off they could cut this thing in HALF

    1. I am so bored of them all - looked at pics this am the dresses were okay but I thought a LOT of them needed to do something better with their hair.

  7. I'm pleased for Daniel Day Lewis but I couldn't care less about them, never watched them and rarely heard of any of the actresses either! x

    1. Well on the odd year when Dame Judi Dench or Helen Mirren isn't nominated, who can blame you?

  8. It bugs me how they play the music and cut all of the speeches short (even though they're boring, isn't that what the show is supposed to be about? people getting awards?) and meanwhile, try to include way too many skits and performances. Heck, the intro last night lasted almost twenty minutes! I've never really watched them until we got a larger TV with HD. This year, I pulled the recliner up close to the TV so that I could see all of the celebrities' flaws up close and personal. It just makes me feel better that they're not perfect and that they really DO have pores.

    1. Pores, fly away hair and a, um, glow (sweaty faces). I thought the same about all the stuff that didn't have anything to do with this year's Oscars, what a waste of time. I also thought - be strict on time for speeches then live stream behind the scenes - give them a shot to thank the whole world online. They never end the show with as many viewers as they start, people give up.
