Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So, is the party finally over? Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says that is possible now that the film industry’s Academy Awards have finally been handed out. The ceremonies, he notes, were hardly lavish, but that may be a good thing.
After the intended glitz and glamour of the Golden Globes, the Grammies and all the other specials, Sokolsky says it was almost a relief to see the Oscars steer away from the spectacular and just hand out its prizes.
He does toss a compliment to hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco pointing out that they could not match the comic antics of Bob Hope, Johnny Carson and Billy Crystal. And, to their credit, they never tried.
He offers some special “small applause” for Franco who apparently did not stay for the post-Oscar parties. Instead he hurried home to return to his school classes.
Sokolsky says at least a few parents might have picked up some useful ammunition from that, especially when they next try to argue their kids into doing their homework
