Oscar Notes

I haven’t really paid much attention to the Academy Awards in the last few years, and this year I didn’t see any of the nominated films. In fact, the only film I saw that had a contender for a top prize was Kinsey, with Laura Linney up for supporting actress. I went to sleep around 9:30 just as some band was on stage to sing one of the songs. I saw the summary of the results this morning, and here’s my take on it.

Good News:

  • Morgan Freeman won for Million Dollar Baby. I think he should have won for every other time he was nominated, too.
  • Leonardo DiCaprio didn’t win.

    Bad News:

  • Alan Alda didn’t win. I just like him.
  • Now I can start paying attention to the Tonys.
