    Will you be watching the Academy Awards this year?

    I am so happy the writers came to an agreement and ended the strike. I love the Oscars and am looking forward to all the glamour, especially since Johnny is nominated. I hope he shows up.

    Every year me and my co-worker throw a big party at my house. We theme the food to the five nominated movies. It was tough going this year with the five that were nominated.

    So, are you going to watch? And who do you think will win vs. who you want to win?

    With Jon Stewart hosting, we all win. I am looking forward to the Oscars. I am not excited about any of the big awards so other than backing Ratatouille for best animated film, I'm not doing any cheering.

    no, I never watch it. It's just a snooze fest to me.

    Re: Will you be watching the Academy Awards this year?

    I know that a lot of people look forward to the Academy Awards, and some years I make an effort to see all five "Best Picture" nominees and maybe even some others in various categories. Just so I can watch with a better informed opinion.

    This year, besides Ratitouille, I have seen nary a one...none of them hold interest for me...so if my TV is on, I'll be watching a college basketball game or something else.

    Don't mean to rain on anyone else's parade, but that's what it is for me this year.

    Re: Will you be watching the Academy Awards this year?

    Every year - so yes, I watch all the big award shows (not music shows tho) This time my flight gets in at 6:20 and I'm pushing it to get home only to miss the first hour - I think I'll only miss supporting actor/actress, but then thats not the first award of the night anymore

    The girls and I always make our picks and then have a contest, of course I always win cause I see the movies that are nominated but this year my daughter who still lives at home saw the movies with me so we'll be neck in neck to win

    Of course I'm watching it. It's my super bowl. Even with some crappy nominations and Jon Stewart hosting, there's no way I'm missing the Oscars.

    Love watching the Oscars... Looking forward to it this year as well. Was getting worried it wouldn't happen this year, so YEP, looking forward to it.

    It's the 80th annual! Of course! And I'll be having a party complete with a red carpet and paparazzi. And I expect my guests to come in oscar attire. I usually do a theme with food as well but I have an all day conference on Saturday, homework and a huge test on monday so I'll be doing finger food from Costco.

    Re: Will you be watching the Academy Awards this year?

    I like to watch it for the fashion... I don't really care who wins. Sometimes there are good performances during it, but the show as a whole bores me. I will probably set my dvr to record it and watch it later so that I can skip most of it.

    Nope.... I could care less about a bunch of people giving awards to themselves....


    It's usually pretty boring to me anymore.. I used to watch it. But Hollywood people get enough perks in the world. I don't need to watch em get another one.

    Re: Will you be watching the Academy Awards this year?

    If we happen upon it we may watch a little bit, but I don't really watch any award shows (unless the ESPYs count). I will mill around the net the day after to see all the great outfits.

    I'll watching for sure. I'm glad the writer's strike ended before so they wouldn't get cancelled like the Golden Globes did.

    Re: Will you be watching the Academy Awards this year?

    For some reason, I always love watching the Oscars, even though it's really long, I haven't seen any of the films (aside from Ratatouille), and generally don't care who actually wins.
