This years Academy Awards with the hosts being James Franco and Anne Hathaway are going to be taking a whole new approach. They have been giving the Oscars a revamp for the show for the past few years and continue to try something completely different this year too. I am actually really looking forward to how they will get on.
The promotional pictures were released last week and you have to admit they look good!
Awards season really is in full swing, but it seems as though the same four actors are picking up the main awards for the films. Doesn’t even look close for the Oscars at all. I guess we could still get quite a surprise but not looking very likely. Quite a surprise for the SAG Awards has to be “The King’s Speech picking up the big award of the night for outstanding ensemble in a motion picture. Great to see a British film doing so well!
SAG Award Winner: Outstanding Ensemble In A Motion Picture
Outstanding Ensemble Motion Picture – Cast of “The King’s Speech”
A great thing about awards season is seeing the fashion on the red carpet. The men don’t really have much chance to really change what they are wearing but always look good in suits/tux’s. The dresses worn by the women often start trends off for everyone else!
Ok so I seem to be on a bit of a rom-com trailer mission tonight, but why do they always look like they could be pretty good in the trailers? Yes as strange as it may seem I do think this looks like it will be rather amusing throughout. Quite a relevant trailer with it being about no strings attached relationship consisting of just sex.
After all the disappointing romantic comedy films which have been out in the last few years, I really have a good feeling about this one after seeing the trailer a few times now. Kate Hudson really does have such a likeability factor and I am very much looking forward to seeing this film, how about everyone else?
Lisa (Witherspoon) lives for Softball, but when she is cut from the US team she then has to deal with how to move on with her life. This involves her boyfriend baseball player Matty (Wilson) and blind date George (Rudd). George has his own problems being investigated by the government and receiving advice from his father Charles (Nicholson).
The more I watch Bradley Cooper the more I like him. This film looks like it has an interesting concept into taking a drug, it has to end badly. Looking forward to this one!
A Manhattanite book editor Brett (Gellar) finds her take on the game of romance changed after she lures the attention of an influential older man, Archie (Baldwin). This romantic comedy has more to it than first meets the eye.
Ronny (Vaughn) discovers that his best friend Nick’s (James) wife Geneva (Ryder) is having an affair, and faces the big dilemma of telling him, or more likely how and when to tell him. Especially when they are facing the task of securing a very important business deal!
Betty Anne Waters (Swank) spent half of her life trying to free her brother Kenny (Rockwell) from a life sentence without parole when he was wrongly convicted of murder. She put herself though Law school and became a lawyer to help him get out.
Whilst looking at some new movie poster that have been released this one for “The Chaperone” caught my eye. WWE wrestler Triple H being on it! I had never heard about this film before seeing the poster. Triple H was my favorite when I used to watch the wrestling. It looks as though they are trying to launch is film career more by giving him the classic kids film!
Aron Ralston (Franco) is a mountain climber who ends up trapped by a bolder and must go to extreme lengths in order to survive. We are taken on the very personal journey with Aron, and get to know exactly how he is feeling trapped where no one can hear him.
Ahead of this Sunday’s Golden Globes and the up and coming Oscars, Colin Firth has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is tipped to be nominated and win the best actor Oscar at this years awards.
Firth has come along way since being Mr Darcy in the TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Over the years he has taken on some very different roles. The last couple of years the roles he has taken on have really helped to show what a fantastic actor he is. When it comes to the romantic comedy films such as Bridget Jones Diary and Love Actually he is always the nice guy. In real life he seems to be just as nice as he is in those roles.
It really is fantastic seeing a British actor going so far in Hollywood and getting a star on the Walk of Fame. The question now is will the Oscar be following for Mr Firth? Let’s hope so, he really does put in a brilliant performance in The King’s Speech. We don’t have much longer to wait, to see how many more awards Colin is going to pick up over awards season.
The King’s Speech has been very well talked about in the build up to its release due to Colin Firth already picking up awards left right and center. Anything about the Royal Family with high-profile actors always seem to do well with audiences.
