So once again this year, I engaged in a fine game of Facebook News Feed blow-uppery as I posted a running commentary to coincide with the broadcasting of the Academy Awards. Oscarvations, as I call them, consist of my thoughts, feelings and bad jokes that I come up with while the award ceremony is going on. Some people were once again irritated with my incessant posting just like with last year’s Oscarvations, but I was shocked at how many people were getting just as involved as I was. By the time the show was over, my notification box probably needed an inhaler and fifteen minutes to catch its breath. And keep in mind that I was doing this work on an iPad, as my computer is still in the shop. The words ‘hectic’ and 'balancing act' come to mind rather quickly.
But anydangways, for those who follow the blog but not my Facebook (pronounced fah-chee-book...like an Italian word), hey, you’re in luck. Not only is your News Feed NOT completely saturated with my stupid ramblings, but you can still catch everything I posted right here...because I’m nice like that. For a list of all the nominations for the 84th Academy Awards (along with my disinterested thoughts), you can find that crap right here. Without further adieu, here are my 85 Oscarvations of 2012.
