This is as close to the Oscars as I will ever be.

Unless you live under a rock, you know that the Oscar nominations came out today. I was excited to see the nominations for Juno (which I loved), Once (the scene with “Falling Slowly” was my favorite scene of the whole year; heck, that was my favorite movie of the year), and Atonement (my favorite book from last year, and a darn good movie).

But I was especially excited to see that the movie that my cousin edited, Freeheld, was nominated in the short documentary category! Yay!

(Also, his wife is due at any moment. And her book will be out in May. You should preorder it! It’s a young adult book about horses! You love young adult books about horses!)

  1. That is so awesome. Maybe your cousin will ask you to come to the Oscars. Better yet, maybe you will be thanked by your cousin during his acceptance speech. That would be the awesomest.

    Well, the director and her husband get the two tickets that the movie is allotted. Also, he will have a one-month-old baby by then. So he will be watching at home like the rest of us. If there even is an Oscar telecast.

    But, yes, I know he would thank me. I am sure I would be tops on his list. hee hee hee.
