Oscar nite

- Tonight is Oscar night. There seems to be less enthusiasm for this year’s award than has been in past years. Perhaps that has to do with the on-again off-again consequence of the WGA strike. Maybe it has to do with the films, though, personally, I love a couple of the films nominated.

Anyway, to celebrate the Oscars, I thought I’d show off a bit of personal memorabilia that hangs over my animation desk.

Back in 1985, when I was nominated for my short, Doctor DeSoto,
John Canemaker did a comic strip caricaturing different ways I could give my acceptance speech. I still think it’s hilarious. It’s a response to Jimmy Picker’s great acceptance speech in which he had a spinning bow tie. The clip is replayed in those reruns of the Oscar’s greatest moments.

This cartoon is self explanatory, so I offer it as is (fading colors and all).

If any of you get nominated, I hope you have as great and talented a friend to offer something as nice.
