O is for OSCAR

It's Thursday, and time for Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday! This week's letter is "O". Having watched the Globes the other night, I'm thinking about the upcoming Oscars. I thought it would be fun to research people or things that use the name Oscar. Enjoy!


I covet, I lust for and I wish I could just touch one....once!




Walter Mathau played Oscar in the original movie of "The Odd Couple" as well as the Broadway play.


Oscar Schindler, as many of you know, played an incredible humanitarian part during World War II.




Oscar from the TV series, "The Office."





Famous Fashion Designer for both men and women, Oscar de la Renta




Oscar Wilde, poet, writer, kinda hot but from a different era, and sensitive.




My favorite! Oscar the Grouch from the long running TV series, "Sesame Street!"

Oscar the Grouch has always been a favorite of mine. You did O so good with your O post. I hope you get your wish to see and touch an Oscar statuette someday.

That's the right word you found for the theme !

I didn't realize there were so many Oscars. (And I'm looking forward to watching them on TV, too!)

Great Oscar choices!

Oscar Wilde is kind of a hottie, isn't he? Fun "O" post!

I love ALL your Oscars! I thought about doing Oscar Wilde, but his story is a little complicated, and I wanted for once to do a story about an artist who did not do drugs, have wild and reckless sex, and didn't cheat on the spouse.

I love the name Oscar.

Schindler's Ark is a brilliant book, though I haven't seen the film.

We have a weiner dog named oskar and I ever thought about it before reading this post but I can't think of a single Oscar I know in realy life.

This was a fun stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday.

I love how you used an unusual "O" word for you subject.

Thanks for linking.
