A reflection on what I was doing approximately 20 years ago when Good Will Hunting was released. It’s hard to believe I’m THAT old. Come reminisce with me.
Tag: the Oscars
It’s time for the Oscars. I dug up an old post about the big game and in honor of this most sacred day in my calendar. I’m skipping Downton for this!
Last year all my movie viewing paid off. At the local movie theatre I correctly selected 20 out of 24 of the winners for the night correctly. At work, I won the office pool as well. I was lucky last year. Will my luck hold out for my Oscars predictions this year? “Hello gorgeous.” Barbra Streisand upon winning the Oscar in 1969 for her role in Funny Girl.
And the Oscar Buzz has already officially begun. It was announced yesterday that Neil Patrick Harris will be this year’s Oscar host! For me, of the recent hosts, my favorite Oscars host was Jon Stewart. I’ve watched The Daily Show since I was in college and have always enjoyed his brand of humor. I know that many people were not pleased with his performance on the Oscars, but being the Oscars host is a thankless job. The expectations are quite high for the show and most critics, I feel, are too harsh. I am stoked about the Academy’s choice of Neil. While I haven’t watched the Tonys in ages, I’ve heard marvelous things about Harris’s hosting talent. And not to put too much pressure on Harris, I certainly hope that this year’s Oscars Ceremony will be LEGENDARY! How about you? Are you looking forward to Neil’s turn as Oscars host?
