Most of you would think I am referring to the Academy awards which took place last week , and you would be right on one account . I am also referring to the much buzzed about Oscar Pistorius trial . The second one hits closer to home as I am South African , but to start off on a lighter note I will discuss the actual Oscars a bit , granted I am delayed.
THE ACADEMY AWARDS
Firstly why the hell didn’t Leo win an Oscar yet ? He is a brilliant actor and truly deserves that form of recognition , at least I had Ellen and her ludicrous antics to cushion my blow . Honestly I haven’t seen a better host with her constant mentions of J-Law’s falls( both last year and this) , add that with a selfie with the coolest people ever and to top it all off : PIZZA. Who said being a pizza delivery guy would get you no where ? I would really like to be that guy!
In terms of fashion there was nothing too amazing but no one made me cringe as much as they usually would . I loved the dresses worn by Lupita ( big winner) , Angelina Jolie, Emma Watson and mainly Gulliana Rancic.
All in all it was enjoyable and a lot of the winners truly deserved it ( but LEO :'()
Okay I get it , this is rather a controversial topic. The Olympic blade runner turned girlfriend murderer? If you don’t know about this , too bad I am not explaining the whole debacle and google exits. But these are just a few of my opinions on the case:
- why is it being televised ? I find that to be inconsiderate , insensitive to Reeva’s family and Oscar himself , give them some room . The tabloids and the media are turning it into a soapie , rather than the administration of justice
- He is guilty , there’s no two ways about it , technically he even admitted it
- I don’t believe it was premeditated but rather a crime of passion , committed out of rage
- why are there over a 100 witnesses ? I think people just want a chance to be on tv
- can the Americans hurry up with that forensic evidence please , give it to the guys on CSI , they’re pretty efficient
- I love how everybody is suddenly interested in South Africa again
- I hope Reeva’s family gains some form of closure and that everyone will shut up about the case ( including myself)
There you have it , my outlook on both Oscars , if you have any of your own opinions please leave them down in the comments.
