Drama Among the Drama Queens aka A Dose of Perspective

This blog is for all ages, so I will confine my opening lines to @##!!!%%&&!!! So the wrong movie was announced for Best Picture of 2017.  BFD!

Did anyone die because of a mistake that was subsequently corrected? How many people lost a limb from this mistake? How many people filled the hospital from heart failure? How many buildings fell down? Did the Earth move?

I like movies as much as the next person, and more than a lot of persons, but I don’t consider it a national emergency if that ugly little statue is held by the wrong set of sweaty palms for a three minutes.

I am not an advocate of drugs, but in this case, take a valium and chill.

P. S. Correcting a mistake in public during the Oscar awards does not count as “grace under pressure” in my book.
