Am I the only one irritated with the inclusion of Toy Story 3 in the Best Picture race?

Not because I don’t see why people think it should be included but for the fact that it totally sucks the air out of the Best Animated Feature category.

I think it’s a damn shame and not just because I think How to Train Your Dragon is a better film!

I think we should keep animated films seperated… same with docs and foreign films… is it just me???

Obviously, everyone, excluding the short-subject winners, read my post on KEYS TO A GREAT OSCAR SPEECH so no need to rehash that one. What I would like to discuss is what they got right, what they got wrong and what left me a little mixed. Here we go: Continue reading

That’s right, my little chick-a-dees, Oscar time is upon us once again. As you know, THE LIST is the one-stop-shop for the stars and their blogging needs. That being the case, I thought I’d offer some tips on how to properly accept the industry’s top prize.

To set the stage… the room is quiet. The announcer says your name. The crowd errupts into applause. What now? Let’s figure it out… here we go: Continue reading
