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.
