Boasting, Bragging, Egomania?
I Love it All!
We here at SconeTherapy are in a whirlwind of anticipation for our Sunday night couch. We can hardly wait for the opening strains of the orchestra as it welcomes members of the Academy - and all who live vicariously through our televisions. And even before that, there is the spectacle of the Red Carpet! Are you as excited as we are?
(I am providing a dinner for the evening and wonder what appropriate thing I can make. Perhaps a meat loaf..? Mmm, no, too humble..)
The interviews, the opportunities for everyone to preen, the sheer Narcissism of this event boggles the mind, does it not? But the SconeLady cannot help herself and she will not miss even one minute of all this blatant self-absorption.
It might be the dazzling beauty and color of it all. There is of course the perfect hair and makeup. Not to mention the all the TEETH. And we like to watch for Ryan Seacrest who seems to spotlight all this ego without turning a hair. It looks like just one more day at the office for him (except perhaps when he has an urn of cremation ashes thrown at him. That might have surprised him a bit).
There could be a moment or two when the SconeLady's happy smile might freeze just a little. The acceptance speeches. Depending on who is thanking their hoards, I think it is an opportunity to run for the restroom. They won't miss me.
For the rest....
- we wanted Saving Mr. Banks to win something and wonder why it won't
- we hope Meryl Streep will deliver a better acceptance speech than she did last year and not be so sad she won
- we favored Sandra Bullock in Gravity and Chiwetel Ejiofor in 12 Years A Slave
- we liked Judi Dench in Philomena but are not as sure we liked Philomena
- we don't care anything about wolves, hustlers, or love affairs with an App
- we liked Leonardo DiCaprio better in Titanic
So let me know, dear Readers, what you think of the Biggest Night In Hollywood. I wonder if you will be watching too. I wonder what you will be eating.
(I wonder if Judi Dench ever eats meat loaf..?)
See you along the way!
