Hello 2019!

Once again, the year is whooshing by…record polar freezes worldwide (is hell freezing over?!), the wall continues to be built, the Oscars are sans a host/ess, tax season is upon us with less breaks, gas prices are holding steady at $3.25, pretty boy governor Newsom is–well, we will see what we will see.

Personally, I haven’t erased my folks yet from my I-Phone “favorites”. It’s hard to move on and make it official and permanent. I keep hoping it’s a bad dream. I look at old photos remembering each moment so clearly. Sigh. Death is hard. Living is harder.

The Envelope please…

And the winner is…

I have taken this ballot from People magazine and I haven’t always liked Oscar’s choices for Best Picture but then “he” likes melodrama and sometimes, I don’t. As far as the whole Black actors having been dissed, am I missing something or is Chris Rock a black man? And did not 12 Years a Slave have black actors last year which won several nominations and an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor? And last I checked, the president of the Academy Awards is a woman and is —? Psst, her name is Cheryl Boone Isaacs.

Hmm…methinks those with a myopic view regarding diversity needs to be evaluated by a professional.

For the record, I chose Sylvester Stallone (before his fame in Rocky, he once told me beer was bad for me) in honor of senior citizen actors, but keep an eye on Tom Hardy, he is an amazing chameleon who disappears into his characters and wears them like skin. If he continues choosing roles like he has, he will be accepting the Oscar for Best Actor in the near future.

I am ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille.

Happy Viewing.

Peace, j
