What is there to look forward to after Christmas?

It is officially awards season, which means that the Oscars aren't too far off! And this year Jon Stewart is hosting (although I'd still rather see Billy Crystal).

So mark your calendars for February 24--you're all invited to hang out with me! (And maybe this year, more than 3 people will show up.) The red carpet starts at 3 pm; the show starts at 5 pm. Bring a snack, and we'll make a day of it!

Movies to see before the show:

Gone, Baby, Gone--For Ben Affleck's directing, and Casey Affleck's acting

Michael Clayton--Performances by Tilda Swinton and George Clooney

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford--Performances by Casey Affleck and Brad Pitt

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead--Directing by Sidney Lumet and performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman

I'm Not There--Cate Blanchett's portrayal of Bob Dylan

Juno--Indie possibility for best picture; performance by Ellen Page

Atonement--Performances by James McAvoy (Tumnus the Faun and the young doctor in the Last King of Scotland) and Keira Knightley; also possibility for best picture

Lars and the Real Girl--Performance by Ryan Gosling

The Kite Runner--Possibility for best picture

A Mighty Heart--Performance by Angelina Jolie

Eastern Promises--Performance by Viggo Mortensen

They cancelled the Golden Globes.
They better get the writers' strike resolved before the Oscars, or else I'm going to go settle it for them. (I am on the writers' side, just fyi.)
