I could go on (and on) about my disappointment at the Academy Award nominations, but I have simply come to the realization that my point of view and the Academy's point of view of what constitutes an award-winning movie/actor/song/etc. is vastly different.
BUT, I did want to post up this preview of an absolutely beautiful and sweet, and really, quite wise, short film, The Ballad of Nessie, that was, unfortunately, not nominated. I think everyone should see it - the sentiment is rather rare - and the movie that comes with it, Winnie the Pooh, is also perfect.
It's about a sweet monster named Nessie who gets kicked out of her lovely pond so a greedy tycoon can make a golf course. She tries to 'keep a stiff upper lip' as she searches for a new home for herself and her dear friend, McQuack... Any more and you'll have a spoiler! But I can promise you, it's a wonderful ending.
P.S. Be sure to come back on Friday for this week's Rose-Colored Radio show!
