Alright. I’ll bite. It’s the Oscars! Let’s blog about it, shall we?
I should disclose that I’ve only seen a handful of the nominated films this year, “The Wrestler,” “The Dark Knight” and “Wall-E” among them. So I’m not qualified to make any definitive picks. But as a blogger, that shouldn’t stop me, right!
Still, I’ll refrain, and leave the pontificating to others, except to say I’ll be rooting for Mickey Rourke, Heath Ledger and Kate Winslet. I mean really, the whole world is going, “Why hasn’t Winslet won one?”
