And the winner is.......


I just finished reading The Help and really loved it.  I have the film on order from Netflix and can't wait to see it.  I have seen the list of the nominees for the Oscars this year and don't know anything about the other films, but I hope this film wins.  I was shocked to find out that this was Kathryn Stockett's  first published book.  It took her five years to write it...but I thought it was one of the best books I have read in a long time.  I read mostly novels, and I read one after another.  The ones that are really good...in my opinion... are the ones that leave me thinking about them for days afterwards.    I usually enjoy watching  Award Shows.  I like the red carpet part the best.  Just to see all the dresses, etc.  I started watching the Golden Globes a few weeks ago...but tired of it after about an hour.  Sometimes I think it depends on who is hosting the show.  The last one that I really enjoyed was when Hugh Jackman hosted in 2009.  I thought that one was done with an old Broadway theme style.   I had no idea that he had so much talent in dancing and singing...  along with Anne Hathaway.  I would like to see more of those kinds of award shows. 
And.....I am excited that spring is 7 weeks away!  (Thanks Rudee...I had 3 weeks written earlier) But...with our peculiar weather...that doesn't mean all that much!  Still....we can say it is spring.
