I have to say that last night’s Academy Awards was the best that I’ve ever seen. I don’t recall ever watching an Oscars that was so entertaining. Hugh Jackman was an incredible host. His opening act with Anne Hathaway was brilliant! Compared to previous years, the musical numbers were much more entertaining. I liked how they arranged them into medleys instead of having long numbers throughout the show.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to watch all the movies nominated for Best Picture before the big event. I managed to see Milk, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, and the first half of Slumdog Millionaire. In fact, the only category in which I’ve seen all the nominated films was Best Editor. I really want to step it up next year… Before next year’s Awards, I want to see all the films under Best Picture and all the actor/actress categories.
Overall, I thought that Sean Penn was most deserving of the Best Actor award. I have to say that out of all the films nominated, Milk was my absolute favorite.
Phew. Now on a more personal note, my eating habits have gone down the drain. Just after I found out I slimmed down a bit, I went back to my disastrous eating habits. I ate so much tonight. It’s the heavenly pineapple pudding that got to me.
I’ll be better tomorrow… I hope.
