I've started the viewing project I've been planning to do for ages, which is watching all the films which won the Oscar for Best Picture. So last night, Crash and Million Dollar Baby. Today, Dreamgirls.

I spent the afternoon marking my student's blog assignments (sidenote: my students continue to impress me) and now I'm curled up on the couch watching a DVD, which is the best thing a sensible single gal can do in this chilly winter weather. Today's Oscar winner is Dreamgirls. I just watched the scene in which Jamie Foxx, the band manager, informs Jennifer Hudson (who I love) that she's being demoted from lead singer in favour of the willowy Beyonce. The Aretha Franklin-esque voice and figure are too much for the band to achieve crossover success. She turns to Jamie Foxx and asks "Am I ugly to you Curtis?", my heart broke and tears leapt out. Yep, I can cry in any movie.
