The Oscars

Now, I'm so not an Oscar-watching type of gal but just sitting here in the wee hours of Sunday night/Monday morning and all I can say is absolutely delighted to see two REAL Irish actresses on the red carpet being interviewed by Kate Thornton, firstly, Saoirse Ronan and then Ann-Marie Duff (by proxy so to speak) with her man James McAvoy.

Also, I have to say have just seen Ruby Dee, who I had never heard off, previously, but she is 83 and looks absolutely amazing! Truly inspirational.

"She has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2007 for her portrayal of Mama Lucas in American Gangster. She won the SAG award for the same performance. At 83 years old, Dee is currently the second oldest nominee for Best Supporting Actress, behind Gloria Stuart who was 87 for her role in Titanic. This was Dee's first nomination. It was also significant in that hers is the shortest performance (at approximately five minutes) ever to be nominated for an acting Oscar." (Wikipedia)

Unfortunately Ruby is up against Saoirse Ronan for Best Actress in a Supporting Role so I really, really hope young Saoirse wins!

Well I don't usually watch the Oscars like I said but was nice to actually watch Kate Thornton interview some of the celebs live! More entertaining than the actual event methinks!
