The Oscars are this Sunday. Any thoughts?

I've now seen the Artist, so I've seen one of the movies that are up for best picture, best actor, best supporting actress, best art direction, best cinematography, etc. Does it deserve to win? I don't know.

clearly this was a big hit.

I generally can't stand award shows. I can handle the Grammys because I care more about music than movies or TV and there are performances, but generally they are just big stupid circle jerks.

what's a circle jerk?

Figuratively speaking, which is how I am using it here, it's a bunch of people sitting around slathering each other in self-congratulatory blah blah blah.

Literally speaking it's obscene.
