“That’s a bingo! …Is that the way you say it? ‘That’s a bingo?'”
“You just say bingo.”
“Ah! Bingo! How fun! But I digress. Where were we?”
– Inglorious Basterds
Today has been a lovely Sunday, it’s sunny and gorgeous outside, you can smell Spring in the air in spite of the snow on the mountains, J. and I made a to-die-for mac and cheese recipe that had pretentious enough ingredients to make it seem much more difficult than it actually was, and I’m whipping up cookies (plus snacking on kettlecorn as I dash back and forth between the kitchen and the red-carpet interviews, my dedication is being tested…).
I’ll be doing my annual Oscar dress review tomorrow, but let me just say this now:
If Christoph Waltz doesn’t win best supporting actor, I shall be extremely vexed. And if Avatar wins Best Picture I will lose all faith in Hollywood. J. wants The Cove to win best documentary. I want the fabulous Carey Mulligan or divine Sandra Bullock to win best actress but Helen Miren (aka The Queen), the precious Gabourey Sidibe, and the goddess that is Meryl Streep will give them stiff competition. I think Mo’nique will win best supporting actress (indeed that seems to be the real story of this Oscar Award Season). I pick Up for best animated feature, The Young Victoria for costume design (might be wistful thinking, I wouldn’t mind Coco Avant Chanel either again based on personal prejudice for Chanel and Audrey Tautou), I pick Katheryn Bigelow for best director for The Hurt Locker (go women!). The Hurt Locker seems to be the frontrunner for Best Picture. And I can’t pick a best actor, I’d love to see Morgan Freeman win in this category after a career of famous supporting rolls, and who doesn’t have a soft spot for Mr. Darcy…er…Colin Firth. And again, not to harp, but GO CHRISTOPH WALTZ!
