And the Oscar Goes to........., My Super Bowl Sunday is Today!
I love the movies. I love all facets of Cinematography, from the grips to the Directors, from the stunt men and women to the actors, from the voice technicians to award winning musical scores. And from the glitz and glamour of the red carpet to joys of acceptance speeches.
I must admit, I am not of fan of overlong acceptance speeches. Of course the winning recipient will want to thank everyone, but unless it is a unique thank you, these are often too long and boring.
This infatuation with all things cinemagraphic had its beginnings in the 1950’s when my mother gave my sister and I money for the movies and candy. In those days, you could send youngsters by themselves to the “show.” Those were the days of RKO and Loews theaters, of double features, of Abbott and Costello and of the red curtain that drew back when the “show” started. Several cartoons were always shown before the main attraction, and a double feature guaranteed a long, free afternoon for parents.
And today is the super bowl for the movie industry! Last year was the first time I saw every movie that was up for serious consideration. This year, I’ve seen all but one.

I will also be trying something out for the very first time. Don’t laugh, but I will be following the On The Red Carpet on Twitter. #OTRC This will be fun and weird too!
