    Sunday Post Mortem - Oscar & More


    With  the cable networks and the other national networks ceding the night to  Oscar, the choice was watching Seth MacFarlane being his irreverant self  or watching for the surprises that Oscar night seems to always have. In  the end Iohn and I, like most of the nation, was tuned into ABC as  Captain Kirk appeared from the future.

    As  Life of Pi racked up four awards, I begin to wonder if it would be Best  Picture of the year. I especially wondered after Ang Lee won Best  Director. In the end, as First Lady Michelle Obama made a surprise  appearance and announced the top honor, Argo, which had seen director  Ben Affleck snubbed, took home the Oscar.

    The  three most talked about films (Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Les  Miserables) seemed to conflagerate with dismal results. True, Daniel  Day-Lewis took the Best Actor and Jennifer Lawrence the Best Actress  while Anne Hathaway got the nod for Best Supporting Actress, those were  the highlights for the top three. Christopher Waltz took Best Supporting  Actor for Django. The winners were as much of a mixed bag as the  reviews, mostly negative, of MacFarlane's turn as emcee for the night.

    Now  it's back to the reality of life. The television is airing the ongoing  soap opera, Dysfunction in Washington, with trite and expected plot  twists. Will the politicans spring a cliff hanger or unexpected surprise  ending before the next season begins? Or will we have to squirm as the  drama rolls to the expected close?

    At  least I can divert attention from the real-life misadventures brought  on by my medical conditions to the gritty stage production of Congress  and the White House for the next few days.
