Get ready for the Oscars

Let me finish tonight with this. This Sunday is the occasion for my other interest in life.

The first is politics and how this country should be run, what it should be in the world. My other interest is movies. I really try to see the good ones and root for them on Academy Award night. I’ll be doing it this Sunday.

I think the great thing about the Academy Awards is watching talent win out. I’m talking about the writers, directors, and actors who stick their necks out on a movie project that every other studio passed on.

This year, my heart is going to be riding heavily on Silver Linings Playbook. It’s a bit of a long shot against movies like Lincoln and Argo, which are both really great, but it’s got a of lot of people rooting for it—including me.
