    Awards are now all about getting tv ratings for the ceremonies and not about who deserves them! See also Keira Knightley's Olivier nomination for her performance in The Misanthrope in London.

    I notice the camera focused mainly up thier skirts. Its a sad fact of life in the entertainment business that sex sells whatever your talent.

    Tame stuff, especially compared to how female singers/groups present themselves nowadays. I could never understand the attraction of the Spice Girls,I think their fan base was mainly teenage girls, I mean its not like they can sing or are pretty or sophisticated or have great bodies or are sexy or anything like that, its a mystery to me that they were so successful.

    But awards have always been arbitrary:-



    Elizabeth Taylor 2 Oscars

    Luise Rainer 2 Oscars

    Sally Field 2 Oscars

    Grace Kelly

    Walter Brennan 3 Oscars ( one performance)

    Red Buttons

    Ingrid Bergman 3 Oscars

    George Arliss

    Michael Douglas

    Hype. Back around 1997 you couldn't put the radio or TV on or even buy a packet of crisps without seeing and hearing a mention of them.

    and forgotten too.



    I caused an uproar when I queried the answer Charles Laughton to the question the first British actor to win an Oscar (there was a gallon of Black Sheep at stake and very tasty it was ).

    This is sad fact of life in music nowadays, I simply detest all this female shaking their butts in music video but of course this simply takes the attention away from the fact that the song is just plain crap and sounds like a million other so called pop songs of today, also why did God above curse us with rap music, the same old same old tiresome music and videos played over and over again, thank goodness I grew up in the late 50s and 60s when REAL music played on Real instruments was king



    Now, where's that bottle of Chianti?

    You lucky so and so. I wish I'd grown up then instead of the sombre 1970's and naff 1980's.

    I like 80`s music. The 80`s was quite origional, Adam and the ants, Spandau ballet, Toyah etc. People with imagination, whatever you thought of thier style.



    Its just a shame it went down hill after that. I can`t see any origionality anywhere today.

    Your 70s might have been sombre, but mine were great! Agree with you about the 80s .... fortunately I was too busy to really notice how naff they were at the time!

    Well I can't really remember that much about the 1970's, although looking back I liked the Glam Rock 'Marc Bolan - T-Rex', 'Sweet' & 'Slade' stuff.



    Oh and Dr Who was great throughout the 1970's too.



    But once the power cuts and industrial action kicked in it wasn't so good. Although I do remember thinking it was great fun having to make do with candles and a tilly lamp instead of electricity.

    Yes some of it was okay, but I think the 1960's were far more exciting and imaginative than the up itself 1980's.



    But each to their own I guess.

    Well, not a big fan of the bands you listed, Mrs. F, but the 80s did give us The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, The Las, etc.



    England also produced some incredible music in the early 90s imo. If you were an American college student drowning in grunge/Seattle sound, bands like Oasis, Blur, Supergrass, The Verve, Pulp, Radiohead, etc. were a breath of fresh air. Not saying they were "original," but then being influenced by great bands like the Beatles, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Small Faces, etc isn't a bad thing imo.
