The Daily Teaser — 25-2-2013

Blimey … !

It has to be said, it looks like Hollywood had quite a night.

Hmmm … That’s makes it sound like a HUGE night for recognising astounding talent, that’s expressed itself in a night of beauty and dignity.

And not like the huge advertising junket I suspect many feel it is.

Saying that, I think I have to congratulate Daniel Day-Lewis.

After all, being the first man to win three ‘Best Actor’ Oscars is something of a record … !
