So I ended up watching the Academy Awards yesterday and doing the now obligatory Oscar snark on Twitter. Snarking certainly adds a great deal to the entertainment level of the show as I certainly had no horses in the race. I liked "The Hurt Locker," but certainly don't feel any excitement that in won Best Picture. To a certain extent, the sensibilities of the Academy are so divorced from my own that the only reason I continue to watch the show is inertia. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya bracing for the future threat of red carpets.
