This year for Oscar night, I will be in Mexico. Hopefully on a beach. So I will have no results. I will be Tivo-ing it to watch when I return. Don't spoil it for me. As I only watch happy movies I haven't seen nearly enough contenders to make a prediction, I won't even bother. Basically I can't really contribute anything to the discussion of what will happen at the Oscars this year...
But I can show you how it would look to win.
The Oscars are held at the Kodak Theater just up the street from my house in Hollywood. This year they had an exhibit where you could meet Oscar. I took Stephen and Mike when they were here visiting from Manhattan. Can you tell which of us has really rehearsed our acceptance pose?
The Oscar statuette weighs 8.5 pounds. Everyone kept commenting on how heavy it was. To be different I had to comment that it felt a little fake and plastic like.
