Oscar Buzz…

Today was THE DAY! And if you don’t have a clue what I am talking about then you either must be:

a) Clueless

b) Living on Mars with no cable, Internet or wifi connection or

c) Possibly strapped into some cryonics chamber- frozen and waiting to   be thawed out…

 The day I am speaking of is: The Announcement of the 83rdAnnual Oscar Nominations. As a resident of the Greater Los Angeles area and more specifically the Hollywood Hills, I am smack dab in the middle of “All and Everything” that is Oscar. In the next few weeks this town will be on a non-stop Buzz-a-thon about all that encompasses this major night of nights in Hollywood. There will be interviews, and press junkets and luncheons for the nominees. James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be on every morning TV talk show expressing their sheer delight to be chosen as the evening’s hosts.  Let’s face it, what the evening really boils down to is one of the BEST fashion shows on the planet. I don’t mean to take anything away from the winners but I ask: Do you remember who won the award for Best Actress in a Lead Role  last year? What if I ask instead: Do you remember what Sandra Bullock was wearing last year…(and you quickly answer the Silver Marchesa Dress that was drop dead gorgeous). Point taken… See you at the Oscars…
