I choose to believe that Mr. Firth, to the far right, won his Academy Award for his role as Fitzwilliam Darcy on the A&E presentation of Pride and Prejudice. Never mind that the miniseries was for television and not for film. Never mind all of that. It’s all about perspective.
The show itself was predictable, super boring, and not very well-hosted by Hathaway and Franco. Next time, instead of appealing to the younger set, I think choosing a tried and true entertainer as host is the best way to go. (And cutting out all the silly animation spots and silly filler and silly banter would be terrific.) That’s if I watch next time. The end of a long era may be soon coming, at least for me. It’s just not the same anymore…
Please see #1. After 3-plus hours, Dreamy Firth’s win was pretty much the only highlight. To celebrate, I intend to watch a certain miniseries this coming weekend…
It’s the only awards show I eagerly watch. (Sorry, Blockbuster Awards). These days, I may be longing for the old days of Hollywood glamour and kind of projecting that longing when watching, but it’s still fun—to guess the winners before they’re called, to watch with friends, and to make fun of the crazy outfits. Not too excited about James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosting tonight, but we’ll see. Almost time for the show to begin…I miss you, Billy Crystal!
