Oscar


Good job Hollywood! Give yourselves a big pat on the back! Oh wait...you are...right now.

I'm watching the Academy Awards. It's fun, it is, despite some uninspired musical medleys. But I wonder if film makers take themselves too seriously. Seems like sheer self-aggrandizement. When it comes down to it, they're entertainers, and some of them are making a real bid at being opinion leaders.

I suppose there isn't any group more apt for this kind of celebration. Actors, writers, directors, people whose stated profession is theatricality. And all the glitz and glam broadcast to the world, no less.

Don't get me wrong, though. I'd love to get one of those statues some day.

Whenever someone gets rich and famous they think the world should agree with their opinions on all subjects that they know less about that the rest of us ordinary peons.
