I don’t remember the last time I watched the Oscar telecast. It might have been the year Titanic won. I dunno. But I watched a portion of the 2011 telecast online last night from an ABC feed. I’d never seen the Red Carpet foolishness before. Wow. I knew Hollywood was shallow, but that was obscene. Actresses answering questions about what kind of dress they had on. Who cares about that?
I saw The King’s Speech yesterday. It’s about a guy who helps a king of England overcome his stuttering. Convincing performances, harmless humour and authentic period sets, but it’s a rental.
