I’m a big Movie Fan. And even though I do not get to the theater to often, (actually only once in the last year), I still follow all the New Releases and the Stars who headline them all.
And the culmination of all this is the excitement once the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Award and the Ultimate…..The Academy Awards begin to be handed out.
Besides following the movies and hoping my favorite stars get nominated, I’m not sure if the awards or Red Carpet is my favorite part. While I get bored of the reporters always asking “Who are you wearing?” I can’t get enough of who made the list of “Best and Worst Dressed.”
While I’m amazed at the gorgeousness of some, I’m also baffled by how some can actually go out of the house thinking they are ready to wear “that” onto the most photographed night in Hollywood.
And I’m sure my mother and I will be calling and emailing each other all night laughing at the Fashion Disasters and praising the beauties who will make the “Best Dressed.” Questioning the woman who suddenly looks around twenty-years younger and cannot move her eyes due to the botox. Or the little extra cleavage coming out of someone’s dress that never used to be there before. It is the spectacle of all of this that my mother and I love so much.
I must admit that I sometimes have quiet satisfaction when an actress I do not like comes out looking like Tammy Fay Baker on her worst day. Once all the actors and actresses finally take their seats after the big “Vomit Fake Fest” called The Red Carpet, I know I am in for a long night.
Their is around a two-hour period in the middle when awards are presented for “Costume”, “Sound Effects”, and a hokey song and dance number, where I wonder why I get so excited about this every year.
But the fact of the matter is, it’s tradition for me and actually this year there are some great movies and actors/actresses that should make it an interesting and fun night.
And even though Ben Affleck, whom I love, was slighted for Best Director in Argo, I will still watch and root for my favorites. Participate in Pools and Surveys on who I think will take the awards home and enjoy all the festivities. After all, this only happens once a year.
