I have seen 22 of the 80 pictures that have won Best Picture. Eleven of them were made before I was born. I even own two of them, although there are a few more I would like to add to that list, especially Chariots of Fire. For some reason I remember going to that movie in the theater, but I was two when it came out.
I managed to not see a single nominee for Best Picture this year though. I don’t really plan on seeing them later either. I just don’t see a lot of movies. Of the two movies I saw in the theater last year, only one of them was nominated for anything. I did see two other movies that were nominated for stuff after they came out on DVD though. And I hope to see another one that was nominated for some things later this week, in the theater even.
So why did I even watch the Oscars? I like looking at the pretty dresses. Although there were a few that really made me wonder what they were thinking when they picked that one.
Oh, and it seems to take me about two weeks to munch my way through a three pound bag of craisins.
