Aright, enough about me. I can see how multiple posts about myself could get irritating. And so, since the Oscars have just happened, and the most exciting thing to watch was Angelina pose awkwardly in her slitted gown, I have decided to hand out awards the way I think they should be handed out. This encompasses all of film and is not limited to just this year. There may be a few awards you’re not quite familiar with…
Best Romantic Comedy: Just Married– Before Ashton Kutcher was over-rated and before Brittany Murphy was dead.
Most Depressing Yet Inspiring Movie: My First Mister– A little more depressing than it is inspiring, I am quite melancholy for at least three days after watching it.
Best Rerun Movie: Independence Day- It also happens to have the best aliens.
Best Musical: Newsies– Before Christian Bale was Batman, he was in a little Disney movie where he sang with a New York accent.
Best Animated Film: The Little Mermaid– Because it is so colorfully wonderful and beautiful and I could never get sick of it.
Moving on to individual performances…
Best Boobs– Anne Hathaway in Havoc. I bet you thought I was going to say Angelina, didn’t you? Just wait.
Best Realistic Sex Scene-This is a tie. Angelina and Antonio Banderas in Original Sin/ or Angelina and Ethan Hawke in Taking Lives. What can I say? The woman’s a natural.
Best Lesbian Scene– Here we go again. Angelina in Gia (The unrated version). (I’m really not biased, check it out for yourself.)
Best Vampire Performance- Tom Cruise as Lestat in Interview With A Vampire. He perfectly nailed the character, and it also happens to be the only movie I can stand him in.
Most Endearing Performance– This is for you, Edward Hotspur. Salma Hayak in Fools Rush In. Who WOULDN’T want to marry her in this movie?
Best Comedic Performance- Jack Nicholson in Anger Management/ and Jack Black in School of Rock. I believe these two characters should duke it out for the honor and have a Battle of the Bands in an Anger Management class.
Best Ugly Transformation- Charlize Theron in Monster. How did they get someone so beautiful to look so awful?!
Most Beautiful in a Performance- Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. You find me one person in the world who says she doesn’t look stunning in the last scene of that movie.
Best Villian– Dustin Hoffman in Hook. And yet he is almost likeable.
Best Musical Performance– Gerard Butler in Phantom of the Opera. It doesn’t matter HOW he looked. His voice did the talking. (Or technically, the singing.)
Best Literary Character Performance– Megan Follows as Anne of Green Gables. Maybe she’s more famous in Canada, because I haven’t seen her since.
Best Supporting Actress- Shirley MacLaine as Ouiser in Steel Magnolias. “I’m pleasant, dammit!”
Best Supporting Actor– Mandy Patinkin as Inigo Montoya inThe Princess Bride. “You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.”
Best Performance by a Child– Elijah Wood as Huck Finn. Also the only thing that he’s done where he hasn’t bothered me.
Most Dedicated Performance- This is a three-way tie:
Christian Bale in The Machinist. Because he really did get down to 119 pounds.
Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. Because he, well, he died.
Christina Ricci in Afterlife. Because she went through almost the entire movie naked and didn’t even flinch.
Best Career Actress- Julie Andrews. Because anyone who can play Mary Poppins, a nun, a transvestite, Peter Pan, and the Queen of Genovia is frickin’ awesome. And she is still gorgeous, even though she’s 107.
Best Career Actor– John Malkovich. Because I cannot name one specific movie that he’s been in, but he pops up in the most unexpected places and always gives the performance of his life.
Ok, I guess that about does it for the Oscars MY way. I really think I should be part of the group who decides who gets what.

I now have to rewatch ALL of these movies with your list in front of me with a yes or no boxed sheet to validate your choices…..care to join me 😉
I absolutely looove Mandy Patinkin in anything!!! And, really, does Jolie even have boobs ‽‽‽‽‽
Many inspired choices! Now off the watch “Gia” again!
It really is a great movie!
You never disappoint. I have to say I agree they should let you be on the committy.
That’s all for now I gotta run out and grab a copy of Afterlife. Ain’t seen it yet but the way you described it that’s a flick I gotta see.
Well her giant boobs counteract her bulbous head.
I agree! Especially with John Malkovich. I don’t know how he pulls off playing all those different characters so convincingly, despite the fact that not once has he ever changed his accent or tone of voice. Just amazing.
He DID have an accent in Rounders… but his best performance was in “The Glass Menagerie.”
I think you should, too. I agree with several of your choices! Fun post!
