Last night was Oscar night, a regular holiday at my house. As I’ve said before, this is MY superbowl. By 6 PM we were ready.
We had filled out our ballots.
We had champagne and shrimp, candles and bling.
We had dressed for the occasion.
I think Ellen Degeneres did a fabulous job as hostess – the best since Billy Crystal, frankly. The dresses went from the sublime – Helen Mirren – to the ridiculous – Penelope Cruz, but that’s what makes it so much fun to watch.
As for our predictions, I scored 9, Hannah scored 7, and Dale scored 5. I pride myself on being the real film buff of the family but Dale beat me on Best Picture. I guess he’s been paying attention after all!
