The reason I didn't watch something OnDemand or on Netflix, or hell, read a book or something, was because this year, I really cared about who won. As someone who lives with bipolar disorder, I absolutely loved Silver Linings Playbook (SLP), which Hubs and I saw just this past Saturday. I finished reading the book last week (you can read my review here), which I also loved but is very different from the movie. Both are awesome in different ways.
I cheered like the Hawks just scored a goal when Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress. She rocked her role (see how I did that?) in SLP. Although, just so you know, not everyone who lives with depression wears black a lot. Also, not everyone who has bipolar disorder screams and yells when they're upset, like Bradley Cooper's character in the movie -- well, ok, maybe I did some of that myself last night because I finally showered and washed my hair after a week. Although it felt good, when I stepped out I didn't want to want to dry myself; I just wanted to be done. I wished that some magical force would dry me so I could just put on fresh pajamas. It sounds like such a simple thing to do, to towel yourself dry, but right now I'm having a tough time. Anyway, I managed, so go me!
Argo won Best Picture, but I was ok with that. Hubs and I watched that OnDemand Friday night and it. Was. Awesome. But ok, yeah, I was a little disappointed that SLP didn't win.
Finally, I don't care what anyone says about Mrs. Cooper's shoes, but if I had a son who was up for Best Actor and brought me as his date, I'd wear whatever the hell shoes I want. So suck it! ;-)
