|I love the fact that Lupita Nyong'o's brother bounced into the photo|
With Russia acting like a knob and more conflict in the Middle East than we can shake a stick at..is it a surprise to anyone that Ellen Degeneres' " let's have a proper laugh" comparing of the Oscars has been seen by more people on earth than all the major bad news stories put together?
I love the above selfie
It speaks volumes
With it, Degeneres, quite cleverly, has stripped away the catty persona of Hollywood and brought a real humour back into a business that is famous for its " knife in the back" Babylon.
What do the Oscars give Joe Public?
Well it gives glamour
It gives escapism
And with Ellen at the helm
It gives a genuine smile
Not a bad result given all the badness in this bloody awful world eh?
