This Year's Travesty

I'll try to be brief tonight.
An exaggerated tweet.

Here are the nominations for Best Picture for the Oscars.

“Beasts of the Southern Wild”
“Django Unchained”
“Les Misérables”
“Life of Pi”
"Silver Linings Playbook”
"Zero Dark Thirty”

First, why nine instead of ten?
Is it like the Hall of Fame voting?
Everything else is on steroids?

So far, the top three that I have already seen this year are "Argo", "Cloud Atlas",
and "Moonrise Kingdom"
That last one I haven't yet done the Report Card for . But it will be one that any parent would be proud of.
And the latter two weren't even nominated.
I have more to look at, but right now, these three are, in my mind, better than
"Lincoln" and "Silver Linings Playbook", both of which are very good.
But not as good as the top three.
And I can't imagine that some of those others could conceivably surpass the top three.

So we're starting out stepping all over ourselves.


My books ,"Show Runner" and it's sequel,"Show Runner Two", can be found at the Amazon Kindle Store.
Along with the newer ones, "The Man Is Dead", and "Report Cards".
You can search by typing in my name, Cindy Williams, Laverne & Shirley, The Odd Couple, or Happy Days.
Check them out.
You don't need a Kindle machine to download them.
Just get the free app from Kindle, and they can be downloaded to an IPhone, IPad, or Blackberry.
The paperback, "Mark Rothman's Essays" is still available for people without Kindle.
I have many readings and signings remaining, and the thing about Kindle is you can't sign one.
If you'd like one, contact me at
And now, we've got my reading of my "Laverne & Shirley Movie" screenplay on YouTube.

About Me

Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
