Oscars Suck and A Phrase I’m Tired Of
The most interesting part of the show was the clip from the 1980s of Cher wearing her eyelash dress. What was it that made this show such a complete snooze? The safe fashion? A complete lack of memorable musical scores? The incredibly dark movies? John Stewart’s horrible stabs at humor? (Are we sure those writers aren’t still on strike?) And did the set designers just take the year off? I know we are a nation at war, but is that any reason for style to hit the road?
And another thing, while I am happy that we talk openly about pregnancy in public these days (Jessica Alba, Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman) and am even a little intrigued by the fact that we can manage to make it glamorous, if I hear the phrase “baby bump” one more time, I’m gonna barf the way I did when I found out celeb parents are paid millions of dollars for the first photos of their children. Eeewwww! I’m agin’ anything that makes a woman’s body sound as if it is a giant pimple that’s about to pop. It’s probably just me, but I can’t help it.
That is all.
