80th Academy Awards.

Though it seems cheesy, I love watching the Oscars. I laugh, I cry, it inspires me to try.

- When 98 year old, Robert Boyle, received an honorary award. His speech made me cry, plus his feeble body standing up there, with such strength and conviction is inspiring.
- When Marion Cotillard won for Actress in a Leading Role; her French accent was hot plus some of the lines she said were funny yet touching.
- The pure shock of music/movie duo Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, who won for best song called "Falling Slowly". This made me cry the hardest. They filmed the movie with a small budget and two handy cams!

It is behind the glitz and glamour that someone can realize that it is possible to be and do much more than the limitations we often set for ourselves.

Please never let the passion die.
