    The award shows are starting right now, and I really feel like I am missing out. I thought Toy Story was a great movie and I really hope it wins Best Animated film. The good news for me though would be the fact that I work for Dish Network. As a Dish employee I am able to stream live TV straight to my phone so I won’t have to miss out on anything.

  2. Awesome. With We Belong Together winning Best Song, let’s hope the piano sheet music becomes public domain.
