Thank goodness for a slow night at Pizza Hut. I was sent home early and got out of the shower just in time to tune in to The Academy Awards.
Favorite parts of the show:
Neil Patrick Harris did a wonderful song and dance routine that left me stunned at how good he is at singing and dancing. Good job Doogie!
Alec and Steve's (yeah, we're on a first name basis) Paranormal Activity clip was hilarious!! I loved their banter throughout the show too.
John Hughes' memorial sequence.
Seeing Tina Fey and Steve Carell on stage :)
Admiring Michael Giacchino (Up, Original Score) for sharing that he was always encouraged to follow his dreams, and that no one told him that he was wasting his time.
Listening to Michelle Pfeiffer acknowledge Jeff Bridges' excellence. I could tell that she really admires him, which made it the best speech of the night (for me, at least).
Seeing Sandra Bullock win her first Academy Award! She is one of my favorite actresses, and she did a job well done in The Blind Side.
I love watching The Oscars and all other award shows, because I really appreciate the collaboration that goes into making movies. Writers, actors, directors, make-up artists, cinematographers, producers, etc...all need to be in-sync with each other in order to have a successful movie.
I may never get my big break as a screenwriter, and if I do - I doubt it will be Oscar-worthy...unless they start including comedies, but I've been taught to never give up. Luckily, no one has told me that I've wasted or am wasting my time. Some people may think that, and shame on them, because nothing that is important to a person is a waste of time.
