I may or may not have had a crying spell in Terminal 4 at LAX before I boarded the plane, but I dried my tears and made it on the plane. A stop at Starbucks in the American wing helped, as well as the forever trashy US Weekly. I am so glad I don't subscribe to that magazine. I pick one up about every 12 weeks and the headlines are always the same only feature different names. Today, I learned that Miley is "pissed" at her dad for his comments in GQ that she is basically one step away from rehab. The entire magazine was read before we even took off. Blech.
I logged onto GoGo InFlight and opened up the sweetest email from my husband. He is always the one I can count on to talk me off a ledge, and he takes the brunt of my complaining that I "hold in" with everyone else. He says when I get home we have some serious talking to do about this job of mine. I have to admit I sort of like it when he puts his foot down. Let's see what this "talking to" is all about when I get home...
So did anyone watch the Oscars? We watch every year since we both have a fascination with film. This year we DVR'd the show and watched snippets in and out with the kids before they went to bed. They watched all the musical performances and they rooted on Alice In Wonderland and How to Tame Your Dragon. We finished watching the show after they went to bed.
Was anyone else completely underwhelmed with Anne Hathaway and James Franco as hosts? The Gregory Brothers (best known for their auto-tuning skills of Antoine Dobson "hide your kids, hide your wife" You Tube hit) unintentional musicals bit was pretty funny, and I thought the acceptance speech for the best original screenplay was sweet and sincere. And that Sandra Bullock was as always, a class act. But other than that the show was a bit of a snooze fest don't you think? And having Celine Dion sing right after Gwyneth Paltrow was a cruel, cruel joke. Maybe I was feeling hormonal or down that I was leaving the next day for NY, but even the fashion didn't excite me much. Lots of frothy princessy numbers, but I did think Cate Blanchett and Melissa Leo looked stunning, even though both their dresses were a little unconventional.
So what was your take on the Oscars this year if you watched. Did they appeal to a younger demo with their choice in co-hosts, or is it time to bring back Billy Crystal? Personally, I'd take Billy any day.
