I think I’ve never ever watched the awards. No idea why. In Germany the time difference made it a pain in the ass and, quite frankly, I’m just not interested. I listened to podcast talking about the nominees though and the documentaries — and a lot of the films in general — sounded really interesting. So I’m definitely going to check out the documentaries:
Apparently The Fighter is also awesome and Winter’s Bone is a hidden gem. I can’t wait until they are available on Netflix. I’ve really been a bum about going to the movies, but it seems to be just so expensive now. I used to go a lot when I was a teenager and in my twenties, when still in Germany.
The last time I saw a movie in a theater was last Christmas, when The Wife and the family and I went to see True Grit, which is a good movie.
Not so much fun to watch when you’re sitting in the very first row, but still fun.
So with the awards — and with celebrity gossip in general — I don’t even know the people involved anymore. Who the fuck are the Teen Moms? And whatever happened to Paris Hilton? Is she still in jail? Or dead? And has anyone figured out what the Kardashians actually do? Like, for work?
Fuck it, I’m getting another beer.
