OK, I didn't want to watch the Academy Awards but DH (that's dear heart) likes movies and such so I watched it. The host, whose name I forget, did a good job of keeping his hatchet-like anti-Bush wit under control. That's the good news. Then we had several speeches about the evils of DVD's ... um, if you guys gave us decent movies, we'd pay the 10 bucks and not wait for the DVD. But WAIT....the best song of the year....drum roll....."It hard out here for a pimp". They actually performed this piece of trash and it was as bad as it sounds. Of course, all of the songs were pretty bad. Dolly Parton sang one that wasn't great either and included things like God and things....not a chance. Oh, during one of their "please stop buying DVD's" speeches, they showed clips of movies that "one could only truly enjoy on the big screen". Most were about 10-20 years old. They just don't get it, do they? Every single movie they have discussed during this show had a liberal message. That doesn't bother me as much as the fact that they are proud of it and believe that it is their job to "educate" us and attempt to force us think like they do. Um, I don't even care how hard it is to be a pimp.
