This is an unusual year for me as I have actually seen one of the movies in the top three contests (Best Picture, Actor, and Actress). Mrs. Common Sense shamed me into seeing “The Help” since I took her to see “True Grit.” By the way, Jeff Bridges in no John Wayne – but I digress.
Indeed after a review of all the categories, “The Help” is the only movie that I have seen of this year’s crop of losers. Once again I can’t for the life of me understand how a movie that doesn’t make money can be the “Best.” And why it would matter how good a performance is in a stinker of a film? Sorry, I just don’t get it.
I won’t be catching any of the festivities. I can’t generate any interest in the pampered and useless class.
