Was I missing something?

Last evening my wife commandeered my usual TV to watch the red carpet parade at the Academy Awards. Since I was to lazy to move away from this situation, I happened to catch several of the interviews with this year's batch of lovelies. Now maybe it was "lowT" or some other health issue but I found the women on display to be in the "nice looking, but no cigar" category rather than the "vava-voom!" category of some years past. Now I am no avid watcher of this annual Hollywood public relations fest, but on those occasions when I have sat through at least part of these usually hum-drum affairs I have at least been titillated by some pretty fine looking women. Not so last night, it was one lady after another who looked as though she had forgotten something, something to perk up her otherwise dull dress or in some cases "misadventures" in fashion.

I am not fan of the snotty Lara Spencer ( recently re-elevated from the "Antiques Roadshow" to "Good Morning America." but I have to admit she was about as good as it got last night. For goodness sake, some of the male talents mothers were better turned out and made a better impression than the lackluster candidates for Oscars!

After about half an hour of this mediocre show of Hollywood's pulchritude I got back on the web hoping that my pulse would get back up to normal.

I was interrupted about 10:30 EST when my wife came in to tell me an old friend, Hal Needham, had been honored with an Honorary Oscar" for his lifetime contributions to the industry. About time, he was the most profitable Director in Hollywood during the late seventies and most of the eighties. His movies may not have been artistic triumphs, but they sure raked in the cash and didn't cost much to make. A lot people don't know of all the technical developments that he either developed or underwrote, not just in the area of stunt work but in the areas of camera platforms and lighting. So my congratulations to Hal, an honor much deserved!

No, I just have far more important things to worry about than what the Academy Awards are.

Turns out whatever it is does not directly affect my existence. This makes knowledge of it's existence rather wasteful and without benefit to my own.
Yes I do agree with you Dullahan that the academy awards are useless, in fact I believe they are a poor representation of American pop culture . With that said I do know what they are & it's impact on social media, I have yet to watch one for more that a few minutes. The point I was making was that if your not "on heavy meds" and being monitored by the state you seem quite deranged.

^Wanna know something frightening? Like, something that literally scares me, to the core of me?

The fact that you probably actually know what these events are...and it's considered normal of you. That is creepy as ****. I've attended exorcisms less unnervingly eerie than that.
Go back & reread post #15! Your the one giving everyone here the history lesson on U.S. award shows in post #22. Having your opinions is fine with me but don't ever presume to know me or whats considered normal to me.
