City of Stars . . . Are you shining just for me?

Following the Oscar 2017 nominations being announced yesterday and La La Land being nominated for an impressive 14, I felt like I had to gush (even more) about the film. Have I mentioned that I totally loved it? Maybe you missed my review, read it here.

Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
There’s so much that I can’t see
Who knows?

That now our dreams
They’ve finally come true

Oscars 2016 – Best Picture


I have managed to see 7 out of the 8 films nominated for Best Picture, which is pretty disappointing considering I bought Mad Max a few weeks ago and struggled to get into it and haven’t had a chance to properly watch it! Honestly I will get round to it eventually. So here are my thoughts on each of the films that have been nominated for the big one!


Oscars 2016 – Nominations


Here we go the nominations for the 2016 Oscars!

Still seen as the biggest awards in film and most prestigious, maybe a couple of surprises in terms of not getting a nomination but the majority is probably expected. Maybe the Academy should release the nominations before the rest of the awards and it wouldn’t be as easy to try and predict them? I will be doing plenty of posts for the big awards once I have seen the rest of the films, we have a busy couple of weeks coming up in the UK!

Best Picture
The Big Short
Bridge of Spies
Mad Max: Fury Road
The Martian
The Revenant
