I’ve been boycotting the Oscars for years. I haven’t watched an Academy Awards ceremony since the 1990s, I think. The Oscars became a bore a long, long time ago.
Sure, I’ve seen clips and segments, but I haven’t sat down to watch it.
I hadn’t planned on seeing it this year either, and now I have another good reason for skipping it: Joe Biden.
The vice president has been added as a presenter, for reasons I can’t begin to fathom, other than the old sycophantic Hollywood types wanting to brush up with political fame and power, and vice versa.
Get ready for another snoozefest.
I catch up with whatever I deem worthy of my time on YouTube, after the fact. Mostly, however, I watch old Oscar ceremonies, many from before I was born. I like to see what was happening at the time, from the likes of Bob Hope and Johnny Carson.
