I probably would have done better if I hadn't picked The King's Speech in every possible category. I enjoyed the show, even though I heard a lot of hating. The Oscar's are not like some other award shows, they are not put on for the viewing audience but rather for those in attendance. I also love watching the country music award shows because they really are glorified concerts, they are incredibly entertaining, but the Academy Awards are not after the same demographic. The Oscar's are a little old Hollywood, mixed with a little modern Hollywood, with a whole lotta glitz and glamour. I just don't understand the hate, if I had no desire to watch it, I wouldn't not watch and complain... who benefits from that??
**My formatting is all messed again, I don't know why Blogger always does this to me but I wanted to get something up... I'll try to work on it later.** :(
