I've got the Oscar Buzz!!!!

After the depressing realization that the holiday season is over, and life goes back to normal, there is still one thing about this time of year that I look forward to! You guessed it! The Oscars!



For as long as I can remember, my family has made a huge deal about the Oscars! We devote our weekend evenings to watching the nominated films, print out ballots, do our research, prepare a ton of food, and compete against each other for the title of this years Oscar winner! Yes, we even have a trophy that we write the winners name on! This coveted trophy sits beside the TV all year long as a reminder of what is at stake.
