It's Election Season in Los Angeles

I'm sure many of you are giggling at the title of this post. After all, it's election season everywhere in this country...this year.

But this is election season every year on LA LA land. Academy Award election season.

While the presidential campaign is mostly on the news here, the endless commercials for candidates hasn't hit our airwaves yet.

The commercials we are being bombarded with seem like ordinary movie trailers. Only the audio now adds, "See it before you vote."

LA, and I presume New York and Chicago, is so rife with Academy members, they can actually afford to change the commercials to target would be voters.

Ah, thank goodness for DVRs with fast forward buttons!

That must be annoying for people who aren't eligible to vote. Since when do actors watch television anyway? aren't they busy either working or clubbing?

Janet, It's not too annoying... there are so many commercials for movies anyway.

Every union member is a member of the Academy. That can cover a myriad of just actors.

I'm so out of the loop when it comes to movies. I think I've seen two this year, neither one of which should even be in consideration for an award.

I love to watch the Academy Awards presentations. I've heard references before about the politics behind the awards but had no idea it extended to television ad campaigns. I hope the writers' strike will be over before it's time to give out the Oscars.
