Oscarwatch

Just found a site where you can submit your Academy Award predictions to until 5 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. EST.

Oscarwatch site

Oscarwatch form

And for a laugh I found this link to You Tube video on the same site which is the opening number for the 61st Academy Awards show in 1989 (the year I got married). It is just awful. Has Snow White and Rob Lowe and Merv Griffin and Lily Tomlin coming in at the end as the host. Check out Cybil Shepherd and Robert Downey Jr. in the audience.

I'm with you- I usually have the Oscars on, but I'm only half-watching. I'm more into it this year too, but I don't really know why. I do enjoy Ellen and hope she's her usual funny self tonight. B loves to watch award shows, so I'm sure she'll (we'll) but up late watching! ;-)

I saw "Oscarwatch" and thought about one friend in my cat club "cats on tuesday" because she has a cat called Oscar and her page is called "Oscar's chair" so I didn't think for a minute you were talking about other Oscars lol ! I only wondered why suddenly you are so interested in cat Oscar !! (still laughing)
