Before I race out...thanks for posting this, Seeta.  We stopped having tackily fun Oscar parties a couple of years ago..."The Blind Side" year almost did us in.  We limped on through "Black Swan," but that was it.  I'm rooting for "Life of Pi" tonight.  And "Amour."

 @nancy a heitzeg Thanks for this Nancy - - Bell Hooks on a Sunday Morning -- hell yeah.  


I still haven't seen Life of Pi yet.  


Won't be watching the Oscars tonight.  Self-congratulatory, self-aggrandizing boobs on the tube who also happen to be deathly boring.


Our culture has changed yet the power players in Hollywood have not. 


If the Oscars were more like this Marlon Brando/Sacheen Littlefeather moment, then I'd tune in.

 @Seeta Amen!


i think you would love Life of Pi -- both Kay and I are quite taken with it all. Especially that Tiger :)
