Artsminded: What's not to love about seeing movies close to home?
Last Sunday was Oscars night and I had to miss half of it. It was a BIG disappointment. I don't know how you react to the Academy Awards broadcast, but I love every minute of it. The best parts -- the main reason for watching for me anyway -- are the clips from movies new and old. I love the Lifetime Achievement Award because they use all those old clips to illustrate the achievement of the honoree. I love the clips that illustrate the skill of actor and director nominees.
