It's that time of year again

 Ok it's that time of year again. In the very near future I will be walking to the podium to collect my Oscar for Best Actress. Meanwhile I'll be looking to see that dignified seasoned French actress Emmanuelle Riva win the award tonight.

Yes we're talking Oscars now. Let me introduce my panel of esteemed colleagues just like the people we had last year with two noted exceptions.. Moi of course your favorite struggling actress who moonlights as a waitress, Biff my on again off again boyfriend, the 200 Year Old Great Writer from the Astral Realm and Mr Gabriel the noted film critic...OK the two newcomers are Helos, a 'Space Brother' ('Alien' is now an offensive word in our PC driven society) from the planet Zatoris as Alocki couldn't make it, and  Au my Spirit Guide from the Great Beyond.  Au you said you guided a soul who was a 1920s actress who  appeared in 'Wings,'  a silent film that was the first Academy Award winner 83 years ago.  Was it Clara Bow?  


Au:  No Fifi, it was not the incarnation known as Clara Bow.  I cannot tell you who she was.  It is confidential.


I understand Au.  I still wonder who the heck I was in a previous life?   I guess God or Spirit has to make everything so darn 'confidential.'  Anyways nice to see you here Au and you too Helos...Nice to see the rest of you back.


Mr Gabriel: Another year Fifi...You look ravishing just as always

Biff: Fifi my girl, will we ever agree on our picks?

Helos:  Fifi I am to be here to discuss these 'Academy Awards'...I am seeing a high probability from many of your Earth experts that 'Argo' will win Best Picture

200 YOGW:  I doth praytell that I am pleased to invited my dear girl to pick the best thespians and dramatic productions for this year known as 2013...


lets make our picks:



Biff: Best Supporting Actress: Helen Hunt


Best Supporting Actor: Robert De Niro


Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence


Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis


 Best Picture: Argo


Stinko: Breaking Dawn 2



Au Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway


Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz


Best Actress: Jessica Chastain


Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis


Best Picture: Lincoln


Stinko: That's my Boy




Helos Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway


Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz


Best Actress: Emmanuelle Riva


Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis


Best Picture: Life of Pi


Stinko: The Watch





Fifi Best Supporting Actress: Sally Field


Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz


Best Actress: Emmanuelle Riva


Best Actor: Bradley Cooper


Best Picture: Silver Linings Playbook (Real long shot but I liked this movie best)


Stinko:  Tough one but I'll go with 'The Watch' over 'Breaking Dawn 2'



Mr Gabriel


 Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway


Best Supporting Actor: Alan Arkin


Best Actress: Jessica Chastain


Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis


Best Picture: Argo


Stinko: Breaking Dawn 2



200 YOGW


Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis


Best Actress...Naomi Watts


Best Supporting Actor..Christoph Waltz


Best Supporting Actress..Anne Hathaway


Best Picture...Amour


Stinko:  I praytell practically any movie made in 2012 but I'll nominate 'The Watch.'



OK that's it....I notice 200 YOGW you of course love anyone or anything European as opposed to American or 'The Colonies.'  I do like Amour though and thought it was the second best film after 'Silver Linings Playbook.'  Hard to imagine anyone beating Daniel Day Lewis but rooting for Bradly Cooper from 'Playbook.'  Great job he did.  And for Heaven sake's Jennifer Lawrence your young enough to be Emmanuelle Riva's gear grandaughter. 

You'll get so many more chances.  Rooting for the veteran here.  Also don't want to forget one of the youngest Oscar contenders ever with Quvenzhane Walls, this cute little girl did such a great job in another movie nominated for Best Picture,,,'Beasts of the Southern Wild..'  Actually this year with Ms Walls and Ms. Lewis we have the youngest and oldest Best Actress nominees ever.  OK so hope you all enjoy the Oscars tonight.
