I don't know about you, but I can't get enough of election campaigns. So I'm glad that hot on the heels of the Presidential showdown of 2012 comes a contest that really matters, the Oscars.
That race got off to a semi-official start Saturday night at the 24th annual "International Black Tie Awards Gala" hosted by the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
Our jury met yesterday. I can't divulge the results just yet, but I can share some new award categories I came up with that were wisely rejected when cooler heads prevailed.
Best performance as the victim of a disaster enduring an excruciating struggle for survival:
1) Naomi Watts in "The Impossible" as a mother vacationing in Thailand with her family who must ***endure brutal hardships in order to find her lost sons and husband.
