[Dialog] Lange Nacht

Das wars. Die 84. Oscarverleihung ist Geschichte. Kurz bevor es in der Nacht auf Montag los ging habe ich den Laptop zugeklappt, das Handy ausgeschaltet, die Kopfhörer aufgesetzt, mich zurückgelehnt und einfach nur berieseln lassen, vom guten alten Billy Crystal (mehr alt als gut, aber gut…), von den ständigen und stets leicht fehlgeleiteten Erinnerungen daran, […]
