Evergreen Up Late: Is Oscar a Zombie?

Yes, it’s Oscar night.  The Academy Awards.  Some of you are psyched about that.

And some of you are psyched that it’s another Sunday, and Sunday means a new Walking Dead.   Maybe some of you do both Oscars and Walking Dead, but we don’t think there’s much crossover.

And then there’s that group of social outcasts who don’t watch either.  We’ve got our eye on you.

Speaking of movies and zombies (Yes, that was a segue.), it is the opinion of the Up-Late staff that this is the greatest zombie movie ever.  Some people say it’s also a commentary on consumer culture (Even dead, they can’t stop going to the mall), but we’re not convinced.

Zombie movies don’t get nominated for Oscars.  Unless you consider intentionally reanimated dogs to be zombies.

You know who was in an awesome zombie movie and was also nominated for a best-actor Oscar?  This very funny man.  He’s our kind of Oscar nominee.

That’s pretty much it.  We can only get so much mileage out of this theme, but we’ll leave you with this advice:  If you plan to be up late tonight, keep these rules in mind.

And, as always, we wish you the best of all possible tomorrows.

  1. The original “Dawn of the Dead” is as close to a perfect move as you are likely to find. The ultimate intersection of cannibalistic shambling corpses and high art.
