TO HEATH.

GAY SUPER BOWL SUNDAY IS HERE: THE ACADEMY AWARDS!

I haven't watched most of the Oscar-nominated performances/films this year. The hype over Slumdog Millionaire has gotten nauseating though! The male actor from that movie however, Dev Patel seems like a cool dude, and is kinda cute too.

Because I love her so, I am rooting for Kate Winslet. GO KATE! YOU GO! Because you have been such a fine actress in the past 11 or so years I have been following you, because you are willing to get naked in countless films, because you do American accents so well, because, and SIMPLY JUST BECAUSE...I SALUTE YOU MY ENGLISH ROSE! The Oscar is most deservedly yours, for all these great years of daring and different roles! This is your moment! Or will you be denied for years to come, a la Susan Lucci? LOLOL! This is an awesome article from Time magazine on my beloved Kate.

And last but not least, a big shout out to la espa
ñola Penélope Cruz! I was never really into this bitch much before, but in recent years, she has really grown on me. I've seen her in most of her major Spanish-speaking films like Abre Los Ojos, Jamón Jamón, and Volver, and although I prefer her in her native language, I have come to realize that she is growing quite nicely in her American career, and she has gotten quite beautiful now that she's older. To you Penny! ¡Viva España y buena suerte!

Who you rooting for?

Alright, call Melissa Ethridge and have her come get my toaster oven - I couldn't care less about the Oscars. I know, I know - Bad Gay Man! Bad!

A little heads up on Penelope, she's teaming up with Almodavar again in a new movie. It's suppose to be a 50's style hard boiled noir. The film is Los Abrazos Rotos. I know I'll be there!

Anyone but Angelina Jolie, please!!! I would love to see Kate win - her interviews are so honest and funny. And she's an amazing actress. She was adorably young and touching in "Sense and Sensibility".

As for the dudes.... just let someone win that hasn't before. Spread the wealth around...

I think Heath will get the statue for best supporting.... and I'm sure I will cry.... it's just too sad.

"Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona" was the first English language movie where Penelope's talents managed to shine through. Of course, she spoke in Spanish during much of the film.

I will likely record the Oscars as I have over the past 20-25 years and fast forward through much of it. Sitting through the tedium of the live broadcast in a year of such weak entries is more than I want to deal with.

I absolutely love Kate. I've been following her career for over a decade also and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind just etched my love for her in stone...
