I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. ~ Dr. Seuss
For those of us in Hollywood (or Hollywood adjacent…you’d have to live here to understand that one), tonight is the biggest night of an award season that, sometimes, seems to last all year. It’s the night where we honor those who are at the top of their craft. We get all dressed up in our finest [often borrowed] gear, sit through a long ass show then hit up the great parties. It’s a good night! I was raised in a home where movies were a big ole no-no. Thankfully that changed because, as Dr. Seuss so brilliantly put it, “fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.” To all those who won big tonight at the Academy Awards, including one of my favorites, the amazing Meryl Streep, I raise this glass of bubbly. Thank y’all for providing a little bit of escapism, a little bit of much needed fantasy! Thank you also for the inspiration you give me to rise to the top in my own chosen profession.
And with that, I’m gonna knock back this little bit of bubbly and pad off to bed. Cheers y’all!
