Yesterday, I finished the Jose Saramago book "Blindness" which a gritty novel about a city where the populace goes blind. The book has a unique style with page-long paragraphs where dialogue is separated by commas - it's a relief to come to a period sometimes. There's some really graphic stuff here as society breaks down, but moments of redemption also. A good read.
Then I watched the Superman reboot "Man of Steel." There's one scene where Amy Adams is wearing a nice, gray sweater that shows off her figure. Otherwise it was awful.
And now, Oscar Predictions:
Picture: "American Hustle"
Actor: Matthew McConaughey
Actress: Cate Blanchett
Supporting Actor: Jared Leto
Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong'o
Director: Alfonso Cuaron
Update - Five for six - not bad. I thought "12 Years a Slave" was too much of an arthouse movie to gain a wide audience. But when Ellen said in her monologue (paraphrasing) that either "12 Years" wins or "we're all racists", I knew it would get Best Picture.
