Now What About Those Oscars?
I found it interesting that this movie is being talked about SO much, and that it’s up for so many awards at this weekend’s Academy Awards Ceremony:
- Best Supporting Actor: Thomas Haden Church
- Best Supporting Actress: Virginia Madsen
- Best Directing
- Best Picture
- Best Adapted Screenplay
Yet, the lead guy, Paul Giamatti is up for nothin’! He played that part SO well.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
