I’ve been to a grand total of ZERO Academy Awards’ viewing parties in my life. Don’t get me wrong I love a good shindig, but these “red carpet” themed gatherings tend to be full of chatter, cheer, overly sweet movie themed cocktails and a group of garrulous, opinionated partygoers who haven’t seen any of the nominated films because they don’t watch movies “until they’re on TV". When I settle in for the Oscar telecast I only want to hear the sounds coming out of the television speakers. Every second of the Academy Awards show is a “bottom of ninth bases loaded” moment for me. In our house we vote twice for all nominees. Our ballots have two columns: Will Win and Should Win. It’s the one time of the year we use out right-brain and left-brain. My friends at KOFY-TV filmed a short webisode of our Oscar picks. Movie Enthusiast Chris Bollini and I make our choices and opinions known. I hope you’ll stay till the end of the video to hear our producer Brandy Bulawsky perform one of this year’s nominated songs, mercifully she doesn’t remember all the lyrics. I’d love to hear your picks for Best Movie, Best Performances and so on. Please leave your comments in the space provided at the bottom of this page. Quiet in the set please.
