Oscar Night Notes

I love the glitz and the glamour of Oscar Night. I love to watch all of the beautiful people arrive in their finest and do a personal critique of their dresses.  Yes, I like to see who wins, but often that is the sideshow for me.  Not so this year.  Amazingly I have been able to see a few of the nominated performances this year so I am much more interested in who wins.  I’ve bolded the ones I’m hoping will win.
