Today is a hallowed day. No no no it's not a birthday, anniversary, holiday, Jewish holiday, caturday, Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday, Superbowl Sunday-- none of those are noteworthy when compared with ACADEMY AWARD SUNDAY. I will await the day with anticipation, for my red carpet hits and misses, horrible acceptance speeches, Angie and Brad, blogging with the Fugs, and most reverently and humbly the outrageously handsome Hugh Jackman will be hosting. I woke last night with drool on my pillow from a dream of him dancing solely for me, serenading me with show tunes and a light tap dance.
Caca will join me (umm Zach and Tim too I guess) as we fill out our ballots that I have prepared and feast on Hot Tamales, Milk duds and popcorn.
I have chosen "Slumdog" to win, however, I feel "Milk" deserves it. Sean Penn deserves best actor, but Micky R. will probably win (let's hope his speech is understandable), Kate Winlset will and should win (please academy let Meryl slide this time), I won't bore you with the rest of my picks. I would like to hear yours.
