I watch all the award shows I can, Golden Globes, Country Music Association Awards, the SAG, The Grammys and tonight, the granddaddy of them all, the Academy Awards, affectionately known as "The Oscars." How did the Academy Awards get the nickname of The Oscars, you ask? Here's how, according to Google:
In 1929, a group called the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided to give awards for the best movie and acting performances of the year. The award trophy was a statuette of a man. When a secretary at the Academy first saw the statuette, she said it looked just like her uncle Oscar. In 2013, however, the Academy Awards were rebranded as The Oscars, so now the name is official!
I'll have my TV on, Twitter loaded on my iPhone and Facebook opened on my iPad, commenting back and forth with friends who are also watching at home. Good times! In case you think I am ignoring my dear husband, he will be at band practice during this time!
Tonight I will be enjoying a special drink, one that does not ruin my weight watchers points for the whole week. It is called The Cinnamon Roll. Perfect for a chilly night, with the fireplace going, and The Oscars on the tube! Only 1 point per serving!
