Everybody loves ya, Oscar

I love the Oscars.

I stayed up late last night to watch them to the end. Then went to bed to daydream about what my acceptance speech would be if I ever won. (Kate Winslet and her shampoo bottle story inspired me, what can I say?)

A lot of people have no interest in the Oscars whatsoever. But I adore them. Perhaps it's due to my obsession with movies. Hubster and I see a movie almost every week at the theatre. And I usually see each film up for Best Picture before the Oscars every year (only missed "The Reader" this year). I love discussing which actor or actress should win, who did the best job, which films really stood out. I just love it all.

Here's why.

I have a passion for storytelling. I appreciate all forms - whether it's storytelling through words, music, dance... love it all. And when you see a movie - it's like the ultimate storytelling medium. You get the complete package. The written word - coming to life on the big screen. And, if it's done right, you get the beauty and emotion of reality. Right before your eyes.

For me, a night at the movies... now that's entertainment. In its best form.
