  •  Whoopi the African Queen (13+ / 0-)

    The African Queen opening is one of my favorites. Although I could have chosen several of Whoopie Goldberg's skits.

    An avid watcher of movies since high school movie history class, I hold a small Oscar party each year. Get the box of feather boas out and they get passed around.

    I've used the party as a great reward for spring cleaning. Which happens in winter now that they've moved the Oscar show up a month.

    I particularly love that they circulate the Oscar shorts at movie theaters ahead of time.  I got to see the flying books from last year's animated shorts winner. This year the live action shorts where amazing and I'm having a difficult time choosing which to vote for. Ended up voting for Death of a Shadow for the amazing steam punk world it created and a plot that blew me away slowly.
