The very first thing I read online after watching The Academy Awards was an article nitpicking at every little detail. Really? It's entertainment. And it's live. Live television is never going to be perfect. If you want to complain about the Oscars, you should complain that the memorial segment did not include Betty Garrett. Ms. Garrett, a beloved friend of one of my blog friends, Naomi aka The Old Lady of the Hills, died on February 12th. That seems like plenty of time to get footage of her in the classic film On The Town with Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra. I mean, really it's a live show. Whatever. Anyway, if you want to read some great stuff about Betty Garrett on Naomi's blog, just follow that link. Other than that, I thought the show was fun. If I didn't like that sort of thing I wouldn't watch it. I do and I did and I did.
