And The Oscar Goes To . . .

As everyone already knows, the Oscars were handed out last night and my lil' independent film "Step on the Gas, Guido!" got snubbed yet again.

Darn-it-All

The good news is that we have a full 3 days until they announce the nominees for the Golden Globes, so I thought we might try and squeeze in a little awards show of our own before George and Leo stop hitting after parties and start patting themselves on the back again.

So, here goes . . .


The Official Procrastination Station "All-Time" Academy Awards

(We got 8 categories in our program here, people.)

1. The Best Actress in a role ever.

2. The Best Actor in a role ever.

3. The Best Cinematography in a movie ever.

4. The Best Costumes in a movie ever.

5. The Best Screenplay for a movie ever.

6. The Best Song from a movie ever.

7. The Best Director of a movie ever.

and

8. The Best Picture ever.


So, in case you didn't pick up on the theme, we want to know what your vote is for the best of all time in each category. The best part is that you don't even have to go with past winners. If you are convinced that the pinnacle of the art of acting is Abe Vigoda's performance in "Look Who's Talking", then who are we to keep you from casting your vote.

This should be alot of fun.

May I have the envelope please . . .

3. The Best Cinematography in a movie ever.
Any of Zhang Yimou's films. There was one which showed a lot of red silks being dyed and it was just so incredibly beautiful (might have been Shanghai Triad).

Kathleen - I prefer the original screenplays, but I guess there is a certain skill to converting previously written material into a screenplay.

Wouldn't it be fun to write screenplays?

It's cool, if only some of the winners would be a little less verbal.

It's like they were just handed the key to the Universe and they actually think that we want to hear all their theories on everything and all the little people who helped them get to where they are.

There should be a rule - you get to mention 5 people and 1 theory on life.

That's it, that's the limit!
