Oscars.

last night, i tried to watch the oscars. i don't actually know why. bored? a little, yeah, but i think i got caught in the online hype where everyone was going, 'ohmygod, will lord of the rings win?' and for a moment was confused enough to think that i might actually care. twenty minutes of bill crystal and his buddies in a lackluster looking hall, where rich to very rich people slapped each other on their back and said,wow, we made so truly vacuous films there, good on us, i remembered that no, i didn't particularly care.

please, don't let me see the same thing in the livejournal oscars.
