The Oscars!

I would like to thank the Academy . . . 
Tomorrow night is one of the most magical nights of the year . . .
The Academy Awards.
Each year, all of the A list celebs gather together to celebrate this magical night.
And each year, I gather around a television to celebrate with them.
I print out ballots. I make a dessert. We order greasy food.
The Oscars is one of my favorite nights of the year.
And then for a week or so preceding I imagine myself as a famous actress.
I have just starred in some heart breaking role and was awarded the academy award.
Following is the speech I would deliver:

First and foremost I want to thank God, without whom I wouldn't be standing where I am now. 
Next I would like to thank . . . Aaaahh, Oh my goodness, I can't believe I am standing here right now!
I would like to thank my magnificent family, who believed in me through and through. 
Without you, I would never have had the courage or audacity to follow my dream!
I would like to thank the director and cast for supporting me and helping me through this production. You are incredible and part of me now.
I would like to thank the academy! There are so many beautiful and talented women nominated tonight and it is such an honor to even be in a category with them. 
Last but not least, I would like to thank my brilliant self.
Without my talent and charisma I never would be standing here today.
So here is to me. Thanks for being so absolutely fantastic.


  1. LOVE IT! Did you see the SYTYCD peeps on the Original Score category dance piece? Travis and Russell for sure, and I think Dominic and maybe a few others. The Oscars is one of my fav nights too! Yippee!!!

  2. Yes! I was so excited, but no one I was watching with appreciated it. I most def saw Kayla! It was great. The show itself was meh, but still fantastic. It was fun watching it with you that one time downtown!

    Thanks for your comments Liz!

  3. Nikkers!
    Liz just told me about your blog the other day and sent me the link. Very cool stuff! Very inspirational!!!
    I already find myself wanting to comment/chat about your updates and posts. I hope your novel is coming along. Writing is definitely one of those things I Love to do but put off too often. It's awesome to see you following through with it.
    And your Oscar posts are great! I Love movies and the Oscars are always fun. (I might also practice my acceptance speech every year!)
    I'm looking forward to more of your updates!
