oh oscar

The Academy Awards are ten days away! Ten! Before we pop the popcorn and the bubbly, I thought it’d be fun to check in. How is everyone doing?

A conversation with my sister – one of the only other people I know who watches more nominated movies than me:IMG_4872

Good point. Why do the Oscars not have BEST KISS… y’all remember this golden moment from the 2005 MTV Movie Awards right?

* * *

But back to the Oscars, first, lets rewind…

Here is my previous status report from January 18 (one month ago):

58 Movies nominated (I’ve seen 13.5 – halfway through What Happened To Miss Simone?)

Movies I have already seen: Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Carol, Cinderella, Creed, Inside Out, Room, Sanjan’s Super Team, Spotlight, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Steve Jobs, Straight Outta Compton, The Martian

8 Best Pictures (I’ve seen 5) : Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Mad Max: Fury Road, Room, Spotlight, The Big Short, The Martian, The Revenant

My favourite so far for Best Picture: Brooklyn!

My fingers and toes are crossed for: Sylvester Stallone!

Biggest surprise: Creed. I loved it. LOVED it. I have never seen a Rocky movie before but it did not matter. Michael B. Jordan, enough said.

My goal is to see all of the Best Pictures + Best Actors/Actress + Best Supporting Actors/Actress. Meaning, I still need to watch: 45 Years, The Big Short, The Danish Girl, The Hateful Eight, Joy, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant, Trumbo

The movie I really want to see: Mustang (Foreign Language Film). I read this and am intrigued.

The movie I don’t want to watch but will watch: Mad Max: Fury Road

Number of movies I watched since the nominations were announced on Thursday: 6.5

And here is my status report from today, February 18:

58 Movies nominated (I’ve seen 30)

8 Best Pictures (I’ve seen 8) : Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Mad Max: Fury Road, Room, Spotlight, The Big Short, The Martian, The Revenant

My favourite so far for Best Picture: Brooklyn!
My prediction for Best Picture: Spotlight or The Revenant or The Big Short… I don’t know!!!!

My fingers and toes are still crossed for Sylvester Stallone but he better thank Michael B Jordan this time.
My prediction is Stallone will win however, Tom Hardy was very good. (Bad but good, you know)
Leo will win (like there is any doubt) and yes, I think he deserves it.
My prediction is Brie Larson, which I am very okay with but I may ugly-cry if Saoirse Ronan wins.
And my prediction for best supporting actress is a toss-up between Kate Winslet and Alicia Vikander. I would like to see Alicia get it.

Biggest surprise: Ex Machina – I had no desire to watch it but it was actually really good.
Most embarrassing movie I endured: Fifty Shades of Grey

I saw all of the Best Pictures + Best Actors/Actress + Best Supporting Actors/Actress.

I saw every movie that got more than one nomination.

The movie I really want to see (still): Mustang (Foreign Language Film)

Movies I will try and squeeze in: Shaun The Sheep Movie, Boy and the World, Mustang

Number of movies I watched since the nominations were announced on Thursday, January 14: 23Oscar Noms 2016 copy
