The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

You know that special night every year when people go to bed with their heads filled with golden dreams? How they can't wait to wake up bright and early to see what surprised are waiting for them?

No, it's not Christmas. It's Oscar nomination morning! Woo hoo!

I hate to see it but not only am I a big movie buff but I just love awards shows. I used to throw an Oscar party each year but then I realized other people weren't as into it as I am.

There were a couple of surprises in the nominations. I can't believe "Dreamgirls" didn't get nominated for Best Picture. And how did Ryan Gosling sneak into the Best Actor category?

Each year, this day marks the beginning of a movie watching frenzy for me and my mother. We try to see all the nominated films before Oscar night. I still need to see three in the Best Picture category. I haven't seen a single one in the Best Actor category and I've only seen one in the Best Actress category. Whew! I better get busy.

I loved when Penelope Cruz's name was read out, Salma sort of squealed. SO cute, so "she's my best friend! YAY!" kind of moment.
