Steph:  Did you watch The Oscars?

Derek:  Um, no, I didn’t but I’ve, I heard a lot about it. I was reading about it the day after.

Steph:  Oh, that’s cool. Who won, uh, most of the movie awards?

Derek:  It seems that The Million Dollar Baby won a lot of them.

Steph:  Huh. I haven’t seen that movie yet. Have you?

Derek:  Yeah. I haven’t seen it either, but, uh, ya know, I’ve been hearing an awful lot of good things about it. And I think I might head out to see it at some point soon.

Steph:  Were they predicting that it would win a lot?

Derek:  Oh yeah. Definitely.

Steph:  Really?

Derek:  I think they predicted that one and, um, the one with Jamie Foxx in it.

Steph:  Ray?

Derek:  Yeah. That was the one.

Steph:  Oh yeah. Huh, yeah. I heard that was a good movie too. Anything about music is always gonna do really well, so.

Derek:  Yeah. That seems to be the case.

Steph:  And it’s very timely because he just recently died.

Derek:  Right. So it’s a good memorial movie.

Steph:  Yeah. That’s true. I’m sad I missed it but, hey, I was busy.

Derek:  Yep. So was I, but maybe next year.

Steph:  Yeah. Maybe we’ll be there next year.

Derek:  Oh.

Steph:  Oh.

Too bad I had a barbeque that day. At the barbeque, it was a big topic of conversation though.
We talked about who we thought would win and any time one of the guests went inside, they would check out the TV room.
I often wait till after The Oscars to see the most popular movies. This year, there is a lot of catching up to do!
