Hollywood’s biggest night
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Tonight, the movie year of 2012 draws oficially to a close, and so does the always interesting award season, perfect fodder for discussion amongst us movie geeks and aficionados.
For this guy, it’s the single most important day of the year. As I’ve said before, if Christmas and my birthday had sex, the resulting baby would be Oscar day. I am beyond thrilled.
Obviously, I’m looking forward to seeing some of my favorite thespians and filmmakers, and watching them pick up an Oscar statuette for the first (or third) time. But I’m also very curious about Seth MacFarlane and how he’ll fare as a host, as well as the highly anticipated tributes to movie musicals and the 50 years of James Bond in cinema.
Me and my friend Laura will be heading to our friend Stephanie’s house (three film buffs who found each other in high school; it’s awesome) to watch the big show. We’ll also have a little Oscar pool going on. Whoever wins will be treated to -what else?- a trip to the movies, courtesy of the two losers!
