Oscar Night

Everyone loves a party! I especially love themed parties. So tonight I am really looking forward to the Oscar party at our friends Vinnie & Kirstie’s home in Long Beach! To make it fun, everyone has been asked to bring a completed ballot of who they think is going to win this year’s coveted gold statues. This is the 2nd Annual, so reputations are on the line, and I am seeking to pull from a 3rd place finish last year to a 1st place finish this year. However, I am finding myself conflicted in finishing up my ballot. Torn between casting my vote for who I want to win and who will likely win, because I want to win the door prize!

Thanks to a friend, who is part of the Screen Actors Guild, Jennifer and I have been able to view many of the nominations up for an Academy tonight. So we go into this party better prepared than last year. However, the one category I am wrestling with the most is Best Picture. Usually these are easier to pick for me, but this year, I am trying to get into the mind of the Academy and wrestling over whether they will the recognize a film that gives a nod to their industry, The Artist, or give gold to a film that chronicles the civil rights movement in the south during the 1960’s, The Help.

Regardless of who wins, we’ll have a blast with some good friends, while enjoying some yummy finger foods and friendly competition. Oh, and we’re bringing chocolate pie to celebrate the win of The Help for Best Picture!

So, who do you hope wins big tonight?
