2014 Academy Awards! (Or That One Time John Travolta Messed Up Idina Menzel’s Name).

Ellen Oscars

– I thought that there was a large group of children behind Ellen when she was coming on stage, but it’s just a lot of fake Oscar statues. Sorry, random 3rd grade choir in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I guess this just wasn’t your year.

– Poor Liza Minnelli! She looks good! What is this, a celebrity roast, Ellen DeGeneres? Liza is a legend who should be respected.

– Wow, John Travolta has magically aged backwards by 44 years. It’s an Academy Awards miracle!

– I bet Meryl Streep always gets front row at the Oscars. Even when she’s not nominated, which I think happened once.

“Saving Mr. Banks” Didn’t Get Nominated for Best Picture? What the Damn Hell.

Mary Poppins

I don’t get out much, as most of you know, and I certainly never get to go to movies. But once a year, a movie comes out that is not optional to miss, and Saving Mr. Banks was that movie of 2013 for me. You might think that I have a slight bias towards Saving Mr. Banks because it is about the making of Mary Poppins, which is a movie starring Julie Andrews, a woman I love and am obsessed with, but I’m here to set the record straight – I am biased, yes. But despite my underlying Julie Andrews agenda drawing me in to see it, Saving Mr. Banks is really a fabulous movie. And although some of the highlights for me were the 2 minute glimpses of Mary Poppins that show Julie Andrews, there are objectively a million other amazing scenes in Saving Mr. Banks that make it definitely worth seeing for those of you that aren’t quite as…unstable as me, in the Julie Andrews section of your brain. Not only do I think the movie is very good, but I also think it is asinine (that’s right, Academy, I said ASININE) that Saving Mr. Banks is not nominated for Best Picture. Or that Emma Thompson wasn’t nominated as Best Actress! It boggles my mind. I mean, Meryl Streep and Judi Dench? Never heard of em. Amy Adams? Seriously? Cate Blanchett? I couldn’t pick her out of a line-up. And do not even get me started about Sandra Bullock. Oh my god.

Oh, I'm not nominated? Well, that's hilariously charming and ASININE.
