Oscar Night

I’ve seen the Golden Globe awards,
The People’s Choice, the SAG,
Which lets us know, for Oscar night,
Which prize is in the bag.

The only one real obvious,
Consensus is a factor,
Is Lincoln’s star, Day-Lewis,
Who’s a shoo-in for best actor.

The rest are up for grabs, I guess,
With choices to compare;
The question is, at this late date,
If anyone could care.

We’ve watched the actors strut their stuff,
With glamour gowns galore,
Or tuxes, as the case may be,
But it’s been done before.

The Oscars show, once all the rage,
In sequence comes in last.
We’ve heard the speeches, seen the tears
And all that hype has passed.

Of course, I’ll watch the show tonight,
‘Cause that’s what people do;
Though why we care about these things,
I haven’t got a clue.

    They hype it up like it's the moon. And every year, it's the same ole' tune.

    hahaha, yes, I know what you mean. I watch it and yet half of it is so boring. thank goodness for DVR so I can watch it after the fact and go through the boring parts. However, I make it my goal each year to see ALL the nominated movies. Amour is amazingly profound but it won't get much, I suppose. Also they say Ann hathaway is a shoo in for her singing drama in Les Mis. Good post for today, my friend.

    LOVED IT! I love the hype...I love the movies...I guess it is because I just love a good story! :) I'm up preparing for my classes. It's 10 pm....I'm sick with the flu and all alone, but this poem made me smile! Hugs, Ilene! You are surely a star on my red carpet of life!
