Unfortunately, I have only seen "The Help" this year. Not knowing any of the films makes the awards show a little less exciting. The Academy Awards haven't been the same for me since the year of "There Will Be Blood" and "No Country for Old Men" or whatever it was called. That is the only Oscar broadcast I can remember not watching AT ALL.
Now I tape it and try to do other things when I get bored. I did lots of other "stuff" tonight. I should have just read something or worked on my script, but I didn't. I poked around on the internet and did some work stuff.
