The Oscars is just too much excitement for me, plus they don’t start til some silly time in the UK…So instead I shall wake up tomorrow, find out who won in about 10 seconds and critique the dresses. I will want to know: Who won best actress (please, not Winslet) Who won best supporting actress (please, not Cruz! Give it to little Amy Adams!) Who won best actor (let it me Mickey! I want him […]
