This year I will attempting to Live Blog as well as be active on Twitter (@LetsGoToTheMov7) during the Oscars. Although this year I haven’t taken any time off work, as I fell asleep anyway last year.
So keep checking back on here and see how far I actually make it through the show! Comments and discussion welcomed!
I saw this going around Twitter last night listing your 7 Favourite Best Picture winners but I thought I wanted to put a blog post together to be able to have more information in it! As you may already know I have an ongoing Best Picture Project where I am trying to watch as many of the nominated films as possible. So you can check which films I have seen on that list.
I am sure none of my choices will come as any real surprise, as some of my all time favourite films have won Best Picture! Although it was quite tricky to slim the list down to just seven films.
Steven Spielberg is one of the greatest directors of all time. Today he is 70 years old and showing no signs of slowing down and stopping when it comes to making films. To help celebrate this day I thought it was the perfect opportunity to pick my seven favourites of his films. Please bear in mind though that I haven’t seen all of them!
Happy 70th Birthday Steven Spielberg!
That’s right I am now entering the last year of my 20’s I find that so scary its unreal! Each year I try to come up with some different for a blog post. This year my idea was to work out what some of my favourite actors were starring in when they were 29!
Julia Roberts – My Best Friends Wedding
Catherine Zeta Jones – Entrapment
Meryl Streep – The Deer Hunter
Julie Andrews – The Sound of Music
Hilary Swank – Million Dollar Baby
A big screen outing for the much loved 70’s TV series Dad’s Army. All about the English home guard protecting the coastlines and focused on keeping everyone safe.
Victor Novarski arrives at JFK Airport to head into New York City, theres a bit of a problem though his home country since he left has become war torn and no longer recognised by the US. He is therefore stuck in the airport terminal.
A massive fandom of mine over the years has been Catherine Zeta Jones (thanks to her Oscar-winning performance as Velma Kelly in Chicago). It’s actually quite brilliant that she is now on Instagram and it made me very happy to see her latest photo post wishing Michael Douglas a Happy Anniversary. I am a huge fan of the pair and the films they have been in so just had to post this photo as it really has made me all fangirly! Showing that things can really last in Hollywood!
I have decided to bring back the feature I tried to start a few years ago on a Monday having a musical moment from a film. I think this is something everyone needs on a Monday. A little bit of a musical moment to put a smile on your face!
