Dear Mr. Academy Award of Merit,
I certainly mean no disrespect by this post, merely results and a show worthy of all it's expenses.
Maybe next year.
The Academy Awards has always been something you like or dislike.
Meryl Streep with Daniel Day-Lewis as he wins Best Actor for playing Lincoln.
These performers aren't just merely actors, receiving big bucks. They are the heartbeat of the movies we long to see, and cheer them on as they pour out their heart and soul to make it happen.
Jennifer Lawrence wins Best Actress in Silver Linings Playbook.
I'm so happy I saw this movie in the theater. My first thought was, ah wait for the DVD.
Just like the extremely moving movie, Safe Haven. Treat yourself before the DVD!
I don't wish to sound bitter, but was that really the Academy Awards show for 2013?
I'm guessing these excited fans saw LOTS of STARS in all their glory.
Quvenzhane Wallis, known for her leading roll as Hushpuppy in Beasts of the Southern Wild.
A couple of her famous quotes are- "If I have to be fierce, I'll be fierce" and "Who the man?"
Okay, yes I admit it. I may not be in the running for Oscar, but every year I get giddy about the show. But every year once it's over I ask myself why do I bother? This year more than ever. This doesn't mean I didn't approve of all the winnings.
We were delighted by the finest of singing, so much so, you almost forgot this was a ceremony for movies.
But then the sinister theme music from
JAWS!surprised us all every time the orchestra got a bit aggressive while forcing the winners off the stage in mid sentence.
But honestly Dear Academy Award Trustees, how does an award show that celebrates the human side of those performing a labor of love, even begin to feel a sense of place, and become lost in the many magical imaginations running wild and free with the theme from Jaws penetrating the room?
Our thanks to those who captured real live Oscar moments to share with us later.
I really want to know your thoughts about the 2013 Academy Awards, that was officially re-branded as of February 20, 2013 as simply, The Oscars.
If you're wondering yes, I left the comment below on today's Academy Award Blogathon. It's still going on.
Once again I'm wishing everyone who had a say in the making of this year's Academy Awards would step back and let US the PEOPLE who go out and buy movie tickets, be in charge for at least one year. Instead of hosting a Rag-Blogathon that merely throws sticks-and-stones (more waste of time) why not put a vote out here for a trial Academy Awards that sticks to stars and their movies, period?
Here's that link.
I understand there are so many people involved in the Academy Awards, like- The 2012-2013 Academy has 9 Board of Trustees, 5 of them are officers.
I don't know how you all feel, I'm hoping you'll share your feelings here, in my comments. Am I the only one that feels I threw away valuable minutes watching last night's show? I never had that pumped up feeling.
I wanted to see less of the host, and more of our favorite stars, especially those in the audience.
I'm hoping the Trustees will not only step out of the thinking box, but throw the darn box away. Everyone knows that today sets the 2014 Oscars in motion, so let's do this thing right.
