One of my best friends posted on his blog that readers would get “bored” with his posts about his family and his love of it. However, I think it would be highly entertaining. I hope I don’t bore anyone with my occasional posts about my awesome friends. Tonight, a bunch of us met at their house for an Oscar party. I must say that I was shocked after the final tally in which I was the winner. I usually don’t do too badly at these things… I am pleased if I get a quarter of the catergories correct. I do have a system that mainly involves paying attention to the news a week or two before the awards and I go from there. Luckily, Slumdog Millionaire did not let me down for the most part. In fact, I think I went against the movie a few times and lost.
There were a few sure things. I honestly thought that Heath Ledger MADE the Joker his own. An interesting point was made tonight. Does anyone recall the villain falling to his death in the theatrical release? If so, it was apparently edited out of the DVD release. Definitely a bittersweet victory. The Clown Prince of Crime was the best part of The Dark Knight.
Also, who would not vote for Wall-E? While I am a fan of two-d animation of old, I think studios like Pixar create very fun, noteworthy work.
I have often thought that costume pieces are the way to go when choosing whic Costume Design movie to pick. Thank goodness The Duchess kept that belief alive.
As for the rest, many of them were pure pull them out of the hat guesses… some good… others not so good. Guess I was just lucky.

The Joker did not fall to his death in “The Dark Knight”. Not in the theatrical relesase or the DVD version. He did fall to his death in “Batman” when he was played by Jack Nicholson.
I did not think so, either. I do indeed remember “Jack” falling from the bell tower in the ’89 version.
