Monday's Pit Stop

Oscar Night & That Gimp Leg

I was pleased to see The Artist win Best Picture last night at the Academy Awards. I usually hate it when some little seen film winds but in this case I have seen it and loved it much to my surprise at the time. Good choice although I was expecting Hugo to win.
The Best Actor Oscar went to Jean Dujardin for The Artist. His smile is something else both in the movie and elsewhere.
Best Supporting Actor is Christopher Plummer for The Beginners which I haven't seen but plan to as soon as possible. At any rate, I've liked him since The Sound Of Music and I'm pleased with this choice.
Best Actress is Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady. Another film I haven't seen. I can't believe it's been so long since she has won. Seems like she always wins. I've hated some of her roles like in Kramer vs Kramer and Silkwood but loved so many more. She's just so goofy at award shows but anything is better than hearing Glenn Close give an acceptance speech.
Best Supporting Actress is Octavia Spencer for The Help. I loved her character and movie. Who doesn't admire someone that can make a good shit pie? Although, I loved the other big brown eyed girl in The Artist.
With all that channel hopping and time spent watching the show I'm glad I learned something:Angelina Jolie has a gimp leg. Who knew?
