The Oscars — Waiting for the Awesome

Three days until the Oscars! (Or is it The Academy Awards? Which do you call it?)

And, most likely, three days until my annual disappointment.

Many of you know how I love a good awards show, which means that The Academy Awards aren’t my favorite, which I say all the time but seem to completely forget each year about this time.
Seriously, I’m their whore every damn year. My excitement and anticipation (not to mention the cocktails and snacks I plan) are over the top, and then about ten minutes in I’m bored out of my mind.

And this year I have incredibly high hopes and expectations for all kinds of Awesome.
Why? Because of this guy:

Poor NPH, after that insanely amazing and unbelievably brilliant 2013 Tony opening, he has a lot to live up to, but I’m betting a brimming Appletini that he’ll be legen — wait for it — dary.

No question, he’s one my faves.
Plus, I hear he’ll be doing magic.

I don’t like to toot my own horn, but I’ll have you know I was a bit of a magician myself from about 1979 – 1982.
Ask any of my stuffed animals and they’ll agree.

Monday I’ll have all the Awesome and Awkward moments of the night, but until then, make sure and catch up with last year’s Awesome and Awkward moments, which included fashion hits and misses, and (obviously) the wickedly talented Adele Dazeem.

I hear Travolta is presenting again, so my first “Awkward” is pretty much already written for me.

I’ll also try to live tweet during the show as much as I can (@urmyfavetoday), but by “live” I mean on a 10 minute delay for the times I have to get up and refill my martini glass.
Obvs.

So make sure and check back here Monday afternoon for the hits and misses of the big night — I’ve gotcha covered!

Have a great weekend!!

    I rarely watch the show, but I love looking at the pretty and not so pretty dresses the next day. Your re-cap sounds far more amusing than that though!
