So I haven't planned my Oscar Night Party yet and it's less than a month away. Actually I've never sat through an entire show or even attended an Oscars Party, much less hosted one. I like movies, but the Oscars always seem to be the same. Someone's dress causes all sorts of drama because it shows too much skin. Two celebrities tell a bad joke before announcing the nominations. The winner thanks their mother or Jesus in a predictable acceptance speech. Not even Jon Stewart could draw me in when he hosted.
This year could be different though. I'll admit--I am not happy about Dreamgirls getting snubbed in the best picture nominations, but I may be enticed to watch anyway. Al Gore's former campaign manager hinted that Al might have more to say than the typical acceptance speech should he win an Oscar for An Inconvenient Truth. Read here.
Of course this is completely speculative, but what a great place to announce your candidacy. I can't think of an award that holds more value and prestige than an Oscar. I guess Gore has been nominated for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, but let's keep our eye on the ball.
I think perhaps I will tune in to watch the Oscars. I don't want to miss what Al is wearing.
