Yes, it’s that time of year again…Oscar time! I love movies, but some of the Oscar nominated films are so far from mainstream, I don’t get them! And let’s talk past winners…Titanic for example…guess what folks…the boat sinks! and I didn’t need 3 hours and 15 minutes to know that! Truly, I just love the fashion, from the horrific (Bjork and the swan dress) to the fantastic (seriously, does Helen Mirren EVER make a misstep???) I watch bits and parts of the awards, but I’m checking out all the arrivals!
