oscar follow up
Ok, I said that I'd update a few days after the Oscar ceremony to tell everyone how I did and if I won. Well, I lost. By 1. No, by 2. I got 15 out of 24 correct and the winner I was told got 16 out of 24. It's taken me weeks to blog as I have been processing and working through my loss and feelings of grief. No, not really- I'm kidding. Though honestly, I was pretty disappointed I didn't win- again. I changed a lot of my choices the day before I submitted my ballot and if I had just stuck with what I had picked, rather than panic and change tons of things, I would have won with ohhhh, something like 23 out of 24. I was kicking myself through the entire telecast. I felt somewhat better that a few of my choices (that ended up not winning) were the same as the guys who write for Entertainment Weekly and the LA Times, etc. They get paid for picking the winners. They have to feel even stupider than I. So this year, I will now have to pay to attend the movies. Just like everyone else.
