Neat! One of my devoted followers blogged my Nebraska poster, along with my colleague Jordan Roland’s WoWS poster. I’m also totally digging all of these other posters.

Someone should write a movie about me and my journey on the Road to the Oscars, because it was a dramatic roller coaster of emotions, hard work, and determination. Out of the 15 short films nominated, I saw 15. Out of the 37 feature films nominated that aren’t animated, I saw 36 of them. Sadly, I could not find The Missing Picture anywhere, so I failed at reaching my goal. Unlike (SPOILER ALERT) the Hobbits, Sandra Bullock, and Mark Wahlberg, I am a complete failure.
But if you watch Oscar winning Italian film The Great Beauty, you’ll see that it’s the journey that matters, not the trophy at the end. And on this glorious journey I encountered a talking British dragon, a science oven, Louis C.K. twice, the nothingness of outer space, midget tossing, Jared Leto, royal chickens, a Belgian bluegrass band, boxing glove art, and 35 dollars.
The Oscars are important and meaningful, so was my journey.
It’s my final accomplishment on my Road to the Oscars. I’d like to thank the Academy and Jared Leto. I needed this money.
Despite the fact that he didn’t have a movie and wasn’t nominated for anything, but I bet he’ll still win.
The Oscars are super meaningful and important. There’s a lot at stake here, and The Academy has failed society again by voting for 20 Feet From Stardom. Not only was it just like a regular Netflix documentary, but it beat out three political documentaries and one about Japanese artists. I am so pissed! This was important to me and the children! And my Oscar pool is totally screwed up.
Live blogging is hard work and pretty tiring. I’ll be in and out from now on.

I’m watching the Oscars, but I don’t see Jennifer Lawrence anywhere. What’s up with that? Tyler Perry is on stage now. Are they going to show her after this?
