Oscar and friends

Sunday the Oscars will be given (seems a bit passé to call them the “Academy Awards” – easier to tweet the “O” word).  

If you haven’t been to the theatre to see all the nominees on the BIG screen, sit back and view clips of all that glitters come Sunday.

And the Oscar goes to…

The wise and experienced…and a bit older…actor: Christopher Plummer …and the Oscar goes to the nominated-17-times…Meryl Streep…and the evening was hosted by…we all love him…Billy Crystal…and the best picture goes to…  a silent film. Has anyone under 40 ever even seen a silent film before The Artist? And Woody Allen won for his Midnight in Paris original screenplay.

While the younger women wore the  tight-fitting, shimmering, perhaps Oscar de La Renta -designed gowns, the highest awards went to the seniors…a perfect Oscar fit.
