Hollywood’s Biggest Night

I’m not a big fan of the Oscars.  I don’t think I’ve ever watched one award show.  However, I am a big fan of movies.  For all my life they’ve made me laugh, cry, scream, even shake my head.  They have entertained me.  Isn’t that the point of going to the movies?  To hopefully be entertained?

This is Hollywood’s biggest night.  So many worked hard for weeks, months, years to earn their chance at entertainment’s highest award.  Anyone outside of Hollywood has no inkling about the ins and outs of making movies.  So don’t act like you do.

If you’ve ever watched a movie of any kind and enjoyed it, don’t be knocking the people behind the creativity.  If you feel you could’ve done a better job, then do it.

If you feel that the Oscars are nothing but a bunch of Hollywood rich brats who are going to lecture you, nobody is telling you to watch it.  So don’t.


I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
