I didn't go to an Oscar party last night. Didn't watch the show. Didn't even look at the winners list on MSN this morning. I realized during the nominations that I really don't care anymore.
There was a time when I was concerned about seeing all the popular, award-winning movies. I followed the careers of a few stars. I cared about whether or not they were recognized for their wonderful performances. I watched all the award shows. Now...
I watch what seems interesting, if I have the time. I still LOVE movies, but there are so many other things to do.
I don't really care about the careers of movie stars. Most talk too much, drink too much, take too many drugs, wear too little clothing, and make far too much money.
I'm tired of award shows. They are boring and too, too long. The host or hostess tells stupid jokes. The stars thank twenty people we don't know or care about. Everyone tries to seem humble when we know they aren't. The prizes don't mean the movie was really worth watching.
So, if you watched the show last night and you are a big fan of someone, I'm sorry. I don't care.
