Oscar Countdown Part 3

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

While I’m on the subject, I’ll just take a minute to say: I DON’T WANT TO SEE KIM KARDASHIAN OR SNOOKI OR ANY OTHER NON-MOVIE-STAR AS A PRESENTER ON SUNDAY NIGHT!

Let me go one more step if I may. (Oh, wait. It’s my blog. I may if I feel like it.) I DON’T WANT TO SEE ONLY YOUNG MOVIE STARS ON THAT STAGE!

My point is that I’d rather not be watching the show and going, “Who’s that?” I want to see actors and, particularly actresses (actors are allowed to get old in Hollywood so they aren’t hidden in the closet), whose work I’ve enjoyed but who aren’t making movies much anymore.

For instance…

Sure, Jessica has a bit of that cat eye thing going on from too much surgery or Botox or whatever, but it’s not as bad as Faye Dunaway’s cat eye thing and Jessica is someone I’ve loved in movies, so bring her on.

Here’s another example…

Enough with Kate. It’s her mother I watched in “Private Benjamin” and “Overboard” and “The First Wives Club,” so bring her on.

And how about…

She does have a couple of new movies coming out, but she was an icon back in the day (“Coming Home,” “Klute”), so bring her on.

I’m not mentioning Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon and Meryl Streep because they’ll be up there; they seem to be the only women of a certain age who are still considered bankable. Maybe the Academy producers will surprise me and deviate from the parade of Halle, Nicole, Sandra and Julia. I hope so anyway.
