Gratitude

I watch a lot of awards shows, and often the celebrities are so jaded, it’s uncomfortable to watch them win. They come across arrogant or bored or even embarrassed to be there.

So it’s fun to watch someone win their first award — after decades in the business — and be joyful and sincere and probably win over an entire new demographic of fans in the process.

Good for you, Craig. I’ve always voted for you.

Winners

This is my friend Wendy Molyneux and her sister Lizzie.

No surprise

I watched the entire Oscars telecast last night, so I am sleepy today, but not because I was up late —

Because it was so BORING.

Where were the surprise winners? The endearing, incomprehensible speeches from dumbfounded winners? And no, I don’t count the garbled speech of presenters — like John Travolta and Harrison Ford — who can’t read a teleprompter.

I don’t watch awards shows to see actors deliver their lines. (That’s why I go to the movies.) I want some spontaneity. Some mistakes. Some signs of life and humanity.

Thank goodness Benedict Cumberbatch and I had some fun on the red carpet before the big snoozefest began.
