Speaking of envelopes…I have to admit it – I didn’t watch the Academy Awards this year…at all. I usually don’t tune in until the very end of the show most years anyway, but this year I TOTALLY blew it off. It is rare that I have ever even seen half the movies. This time, I had actually gone to the theater for two – Toy Story 3 and Inception (both of which I loved, for very different reasons) and Megan got The Social Network from Netflix, so I watched it before she sent it back…I liked it okay.
