And the award for Best Award Acceptance goes to…

No idea, but it’s an award I’d like to see (though not enough to find out if someone got there first). We shall have to wait and see who will win the awards before that one can be decided. The film studios are certainly not leaving it to chance alone by releasing virtually all the likely nominees in one go in January. So last night we went to see Frost/Nixon, and tonight Revolutionary Road. One about two blokes, one about a couple, but both with two leading roles. Also, both very dramatic films, and no surprise that Frost/Nixon was adapted from a stage play; though from reading Revolutionary Road just a few weeks ago, I wasn’t surprised how theatrical it too felt. Both films were in the big downstairs screens, and so the poor actors’ faces were blown up several stories high, leaving every muscular twitch that crossed their faces to feel like an emotional hammer blow. No need for explosions to win an Oscar. We shall see… good luck Kate!
