We have ...
... an Oscars date: March 7, 2010, according to AP -- two weeks later than normal because of, ugh, the Winter Olympics*.
*Revolutionary idea: Have the figure skating finalists perform to the Best Original Song nominees. That way we can tune both out at the same time!
Oh, but this should be a positive post, because it's got us thinking about the Academy Awards and all their frustratingly exciting, obsession-driving glory.
Even more important: Christmas Day itself (a.k.a. Oscar Nominations Day) is set for Feb. 2.
So what will we see on the second day of February*?
*Do NOT say "our shadow."
Will the Academy recognize powerful, gripping cinema, like in 2007? Or will it honor over-hyped fluff ... like in 2007? Or maybe something like this?
Can't wait to see ...
