Does Anyone Really Care About The Oscars?
As a young child I remember watching the Oscars each year. My grandparent's had a color TV, so we usually watched from their living room. Not since the early 1980's have I even remotely cared about watching the parade of stars and starlets that disgrace the red carpet. I hate hearing about who's wearing what designer, and has borrowed very expensive jewelry ... and let's not forget what after awards party and which "Hollywood" chef is hosting a backstage bash these people attend. Do we really need a weeks worth of seeing so-and-so getting primped for the event. Do I really care what type of shoes or handbag are being worn? And then there's a week of post Oscars news to start flipping through on the TV. I may have to pull the TV plug for the next week lest I get a migraine from boring old Hollywood. Does anyone even know what movies are up for awards? Or best actress or actor awards? I haven't a clue ... do you?
