On Monday I went to the special live broadcast of the 79th Academy Awards at the Nova cinema. Lots of drinks, some good food, and several hours of watching vacuous space cadets. They were the staff of local distribution companies screaming at each other about how much more money they were going to make if the films they distribute in Australia win awards.
The other tedious part was the awards themselves. Why do the men all wear the same suits? And why do so many women obviously not eat for months? Boring. It was worth trying but I don’t think I’ll go again.
