The 90th Annual Academy Awards Will Honour The Best And Most Innovative People In The Motion Picture Industry

The 90th Annual Academy Awards Will Honour The Best And Most Innovative People In The Motion Picture Industry Okay. Tonight’s the night when we get to sit back, relax and movie geek out on our favorite night of the year – The Oscars.

And just because I am on a destination vacation, it doesn’t mean I can’t take a break from the sun and surf and enjoy my Oscar fun. I mean -c’mon.

Hosting this year’s festivities is the ever popular Jimmy Kimmel who will add his iconic comedic flavor to the televised show. This is his second consecutive year as host and he is gleefully looking forward to the festivities. Remember the Best Picture Category mix-up last year? Moonlight VS. LaLa Land? That was an LOL moment to remember.

And the nominated pictures seem to be evenly matched with no clear winner in sight. Watch for “Get Out” to pull a win at the ninth hour. It has been receiving a lot of press of late.

Enjoy the show everyone and come back to discuss your thoughts in the comments section below.

    Destined vacation, I had thought you fully retired…. Was looking for something on the big Superbowl night…. I mean, Carrie Underwood and the Champion and the Half Time show etc……Oscar night I unfortunately did not watch, I just didn’t want to get caught up in the political garbage from these celebrities… It used to be fun when they would just go up and accept their award. Sad how times have changed…… Even music awards are no fun to watch anymore….

  2. Hey Richard. I apologize for the lack of feedback and posts on my part. I had a problem with my right eye and it has been a scary situation. I lost a lot of vision and was sent for tests and apparently I am an incredibly healthy person with a blurry eye. Doctors think I had an eye stroke. They have no idea what happened. But here I am, relaxing on a vacation I thought wasn’t going to happen because of this vision thing.

    Now, about the Oscars, totally agree. I am sick, SICK of the messaging. I understand the issues and support them but this is the one night I look forward to because it should be pure escapism. But it was just more noise. Ugh. Horrible show

    Oh my Rosanne, sorry to hear that. I had a friend that had a stroke in the one eye and it severed the optic nerve. Wreaked havoc for them…… I hope the situation turns around for you. I totally understand about not posting…. It is always a pleasure of seeing them….. Be well and enjoy the time, life is so short as it is……


  4. Thank you Richard. It is scary and I am sorry to hear about your friend. My right eye is pretty cloudy but I will need constant follow up to protect my left eye. I think the vision has improved somewhat but not enough to provide emotional relief. What can you do? I am pretty healthy and exercise and eat properly. My optic nerve wasn’t severed but there are pockets of extreme visual loss. But, I am still here and still writing and will try my best to stay connected. I miss my MCL family. 💕


  5. Oh, my, here’s praying your eye recovers at least somewhat and that you stay healthy and well!

    I did like Sufjan Stevens “Mystery of Love”, although I think he could have done it better by himself–and at full length. It’s a lovely song. (A friend once told me to listen to his albums as though it they’re Bach, rather than pop–which does help!)

    I was also sorry LadyBird got no Oscar love, and that Timothee Chalamet didn’t win although, of course, that was to be expected, with him only being 22. I have to admit I missed a lot of the show, since my mom wanted to see Worst Cooks in America which was on from 9:00 to 10:00, so there was a lot of switching back and forth then in my home then!

  6. Well ReReader it was kind of an underwhelming show. You did not miss much. I too was hoping for a different outcome but that’s how these awards shows go. Will you be watching American Idol on Sunday? I will add some topics later on in the week. Thank you for your prayers. As the saying goes, things can be a whole lot worse.

  7. I’ll watch as much of American Idol as does not conflict with the finale of Worst Cooks in America, anyway! I am curious to see what they do with it.

  8. I am so sorry to hear about your vision difficulties. My sister suffers from low angle glaucoma, so I understand about fear of loss of sight. I hope perhaps your vision returns. I have had experience with doctors saying there’s no hope and they’re wrong! Keep trying to stay positive. I’ve missed your posts. Welcome Back!!

    I’ll be watching Idol on Sunday. It’s unfortunate the problems that Ryan Seacrest has encountered lately. It is so hard to be perfect isn’t it? Yet that seems to be the expectation of everyone everywhere.

    Just wanted to let you know that David Cook has just released his latest EP called Chromance on Feb. 16th. Once again, he’s shown us why he won S7 of Idol.

    Big news!! He’s headed to Broadway to star in a short run of the musical Kinky Boots, from April 3rd to May 5th. I know he’s always had this on his want to do list. This is a Tony Award winning musical with the score written by Cyndi Lauper(Girls Just Wanna Have Fun). He said in an interview, he had been asked to star in the Broadway play by Green Day, American Idiot, but the timing was not good. I’m so glad he gets to fulfill another dream.
