Did You See It?

Did you see it?  Tell me.

Did you?

Yeah, neither did I.

But unlike other years, I actually did want to.  I truly thought about.   I thought about carving out a few hours to dabble in the Hollywood glitz and glamor of The Golden Globes.  I thought about dressing up in a tux and setting a fancy dinner and drink and pulling my table close to the TV and pretending to be part of the Hollywood elite.  I thought about pretending to be on edge just in case Ricky Gervais told a zinger about me.

I guess, truth be told, I’ve never really been into awards shows.  Two years back, we did a little Oscars party and contemplated making it annual thing, but it didn’t happen.  Maybe that’s because we rarely get to see any of the nominated films.  That changed a bit last year when they nominated ten films for Best Picture.

I don’t figure this year will be any different.  I’d say 75% of my movie viewing has been of the animated variety (yes, I saw Gnomeo & Juliet), and I can’t think of any film that I saw that would be on the level of The Artist… unless the final installment of Harry Potter counts.

Now there was a time, when I lived in the Los Angeles area, when I participated in an Oscar party or two, but that was before we had kids and we didn’t have to think about school the next morning.  Now that I’m in the Midwest, school and work come pretty early the next morning.

The funny thing is that entertainment related award shows are pretty silly.  Think about it.  Big time actors and musicians get all gussied up, climb out of a limo, walk along a red carpet, get interviewed by Hollywood Tonight, pose for the paparazzi, wave to the fans, get critiqued for their wardrobe, and pat themselves on the back.

So there, you see? It’s confirmed.  I’m jealous.
