Who's Watching the Oscars?
I might actually watch this year.
I've seen 127 hours and True Grit, and I'd like to see if Natalie Portman gets the Oscar for Black Swan.
Also, a favorite actor of mine since I was 12 is finally nominated for his first Oscar this year: Christain Bale. I remember watching him in Empire of the Sun, and my all time favorite: Treasure Island with Charleton Heston as one of the best pirates ever.
Do you recognize Christian Bale in the background? Oh the many nights I stayed up thinking about being on that ship when I was 12. We watched it in my six grade english class and that's when I fell in love with the idea of pirates and that talented actor. I've watched his progress ever since: Little Women, Batman, even as one of the voices in Disney's Pocahontas.
Now he's nominated for The Fighter. I didn't see it because I hate watching boxing, but I still hope he wins.
What about you? Any Oscar picks?
