The Oscars will be the lowest rated ever

    My point in posting this is...

    I didn't even know either one of them were nominated and I have no idea of any of the films that got nominated for Best Picture. Can anyone ever remember a year in which the interest level for this was so low?

    I think this was a seminal year for film, so I am very enthusiastically looking forward to the show.
  4. Oh, sure.
    Show off.

    No offense to Clooney, and I agree with so much of what he articulates, but every role of his is some affectation of his Doug Ross character.

    I loved his Ross and the way he is earnest and does his head tilt and dramatic pauses, but to me, it's not much different than Hugh Grant at this point (or Cary Grant back when, though Cary was THE man)... it's all facsimile of the ER original.

    The thought he should win anything for Clayton is purely laughable.

    I think the Writers Strike is the biggest reason for this...

    If the Golden Globes had happened as they usually do, it would have been an opening act for the Oscars... This way, there was much less promotion than usual...

    It's the only awards show that I go out of my way to watch... The exception is if it's on during the NCAA Tournament, which it has been in a few of the last years...
