You may or may not know this, but it's that time of year again. The only reason that February is even tolerable to me: The Oscars!!! The last and biggest of the award shows and the one that get the most pomp & circumstance. It's also my favorite awards show. Now, I know that it's highly political and flawed. And usually the movies selected don't really represent what's popular, but given the popularity of the Twilight movies, I can see why the Oscars doesn't go with the popular choices.
But the reason I love the Oscars is because they pay respect to the Movies as a whole. Not just the current films, but the history of the movies as well. The Film Industry has a long and amazing history, and while the Oscars telecast can be a bit antiquated by modern awards standards, that history is worth exploring and re-living. Even if it is for just one night.
