The Oscars are tomorrow–each year the films get less interesting, if that’s possible.
- Didn’t love No Country For Old Men…one-dimensional & too violent, even for me–although I have always liked the Coen Bros. What happened here? Don’t know. They weren’t working from their own material.
- Julian Schnabel for Best Director? No to: The Diving Bell & The Butterfly. Interesting premise that failed as a film, or maybe the film was successful & the premise is the problem? I think he is a masterful painter & I loved Schnabel’s work at the Gramercy Park Hotel & the pink (more Etruscan red, no?) palazzo. He’s daring & will make a great movie when he finds the right project!
- Marion Cotillard deserves to win Best Actress, although I didn’t like La Vie En Rose…. another lame French film.
- Can’t wait for Miley Cyrus and The Rock as presenters!!! WOW!
Turning to the debates. In Texas, Hillary would not shut-up & answer a question asked by the handsome guy from Univison…she just yammered on w/ her own agenda. Is that presidential or out-of-control? Would she do that with Putin? She’s gone from saying she has 35-years experience to saying she has 15. I guess that means 7-yrs. in the Senate & that SHE’S CO-OPTING BILL CLINTON’S 2 TERMS AS PRESIDENT. I’M SUPPORTING BARACK OBAMA!
