I don't follow the Academy Awards much anymore. The movies and actors I like never seem to get chosen so it's not worth my time to sit and watch awards given to actors and movies I never saw.

Hi Beverly,

Yes, movies these days leave much to be desired. It's a shame! Movies are such a powerful communication device, but the movie industry is driven by profits rather than producing top-notch movies that mean something.

I took classes in screenwriting and wrote two screenplays and 10 shorts because I thought I could do better. I haven't been able to get any of them made. However, a friend in my classes was successful in having two of her shorts produced by classes at The Evergreen Sate College here in Olympia, Wash.

P.S. Since I've seen about a dozen of the movies, I think I'll invite some people to watch the awards with me.
