Why I’m glad the Oscars went on as planned: because, like Nicole Kidman said, art is important. In light of the 24 hour, all war all the time coverage, it’s important to celebrate beauty. It’s important to celebrate and recognize those who have inspired us. The $30,000 (rumored) gift baskets are a bit much – but I don’t resent the people behind the Oscars for distracting me for a couple of hours, for giving me something fun to think about.
Oh, and Adrien Brody.
