Inspiration: Oscars

The Academy Awards were last night.  And, instead of watching them, my husband and I watched old episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation (because we are nerds).  But, from what I’ve heard, the show was full of excitement.  So, here follows my zero-research (except for what my friends texted me while they were watching) report on “What Happened at the Oscars,” as explained by fiber arts projects.

  1.  The Oscars happened last night.  Lots of people got awards for being in movies.  When they won, they got to take home a little trophy.

I think they called the wrong movie, then realized it was a mistake halfway through their acceptance speech and made the not-winners give the award over to the actual winner.  This seems so unlikely that I don’t know if I 100% believe that it happened.  I could look it up and confirm.  But then, what’s the point of doing a zero-research post, if I end up having to do research.

    We caught the last hour. It was fun, seeing Emma Stone win (loved her in Easy A and have watched her ever since). Jimmy Kimmel ragging on Matt Damon is always a good time! Yes, they did mix up the envelopes on best picture and that ended the show on an anticlimactic note, but Price Waterhouse has taken the blame, apologized to everyone, and life is moving on.
    I love STNG too (I have a cast photo with all the autographs; HUGE nerd, lol!)!
