Lions and tigers and bears! Oh, hai!!!! You're just in time, friends — prepare yourself for some wickedly wonderful news!!
Producers behind this year's Oscars just announced plans to celebrate the 75th birthday of one of the greatest movies ever made, The Wizard of Oz!!!!
Seventy-five years? Wow, we hardly believe it!!! The film has aged soooo gracefully; it doesn't look a day over thirty!
Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron released this statement:
"We are delighted to celebrate the birthday of one of the most beloved movies of all time at this year’s Oscars."
It's more than just beloved, it's the film that put Judy Garland on the map and for that we will be eternally grateful!
We wonder if Ellen DeGeneres will be part of this AMAZEBALLZ tribute? Yess! We hope so! Just the thought of that makes us want to slip a ruby condom on our junk and do the conga!
Interestingly enough, The Wizard of Oz didn't win Best Picture in 1939, that award went to the equally awesome civil war epic Gone with the Wind!!
Wow! What a marvelous year for movies! We hope that Vivien Leigh & Clark Gable masterpiece gets a 75th birthday tribute, too!
