SPC: Celebration Week #4
So, I was going to photoshop Michael Cera into this shot in case the reference was lost, but I think my striped shirt does the trick. Now, I've already mentioned that I didn't LOVE Juno with a capital L-O-V-E but, I'm feeling celebratory about my Canadian brothers and sisters who heard their names in last week's Oscar noms. Now, it kind of drives me crazy when the Canadian media get too frothed at the mouth about any Canadian connection in a hit American movie, but you gotta be proud of little Ellen Page and Michael Cera. Overrated? Perhaps. But still pretty darn good.
I love celebrating the Oscars, and I'm taking my chance now, since the show may or may not actually happen this year. Last year I won my Oscar party pool plus my annual bet with my dad -- what will I do without that thrill this year? Well, I guess it's really about the movies, not the awards, so I'm going to do my best to see No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood before Frank is born. To celebrate the cinema.
