well, they haven't happened yet - but tonight I will be watching. I have not seen even one of these movies, so I will enjoy seeing clips of them and deciding which ones I really must see later.
I was just thinking of you! I can't wait to see how things turn out and while I've made a few guesses on the winners, this year I think it is unpredictable. There is a lot of greatness competing!
Can't wait to see who wins!
Look at you! 100% correct! I hope you put money on all those predictions.
Best picture or not, I'll never watch 12 Years a Slave. I know it's an "important" film and all but I cannot stand torture scenes, and I've been told that there are a few too many in this one. Congrats to the cast and all but this isn't for me, thanks.
You pretty much nailed it though like you I was hoping for Judi Dench, my favorite actress.
I have seen a few of these and will go for more though will probably pass on some of the dysfunctional ones.
Enjoyed Ellen's less mean than normal fun.
Naomi you are sensational! I think it is the professional in you – you can judge the performances so well. I enjoyed the show and looking at the gorgeous (and not so gorgeous) gowns. I did shed a tear or two at some of the acceptance speeches. I thought Ellen was funny and down to earth – loved that “selfie” with such a talented group around her. I wish Philomena had won something as I really cared for this film. I did not know anything about Gravity and now will try to see it. Of course since I read the reprinted from the original book 12 Years a Slave in New Orleans last year I was hoping it would win, and it did. I am always surprised at the number of movie on the Holocaust against the numbers of the movie on slavery. (Of course slavery is still happening – I was just reading an article about children taken as slaves in India to work on tea plantations, and others in Congo to work in chocolate bean farms) I hope you enjoyed the Oscars – I know I did.
Well I've only seen Gravity out of the ones mentioned and I've never been so bored in my whole life. Okay I was watching it on a small screen on the plane but it just didn't hold my attention at all. My daughters hated it too. Obviously I'm missing something, but I like a film with real dialogue.
they were pretty excellent Oscars! I enjoyed it all and no big surprises . It seems impossible that all the awards are over now :o)
Hi Naomi, I totally agree with Vagabonde, you are sensational!
You can judge the performances so well and your reviews are always just great!
Did you believe that this year I forgot to turn on the TNT to see the Oscar?
I liked that Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto winn too!
There is a lot of good movies to put on my list.
Hope you have a nice week ahead. :)
Wow, you should have put money on those predictions! What a great show, great movies and acting.
You're good! You got all of them, didn't you? I thought Philomena deserved some, too.
I could not agree more, also I enjoyed the show, faults and all, loved Ellen and the vibe in the 'room' was such joy.
Of course you are sensational.
I think they should do away with the other judges and just have you. We are so lucky to have you:)
I must investigate the Woody Allen film. Streetcar left an indelible impression on me way back when.
I only saw a bit of the Oscars, but missed all of the above except for Lupita's win. So luminous - I loved that she won. I forgot to record it when I was out of town - I think it's so awesome that you are so close to everything there! Can you hear the applause?
You called it perfectly! I haven't seen them yet -- we were traveling, but my friend made a copy for me. (I wanted Judi, too, but happy with Cate.)
Well, I went and fell asleep and missed the Oscars. I do wish I could go through your movies before the awards every year to make sure I've seen the best of them. Your reviews are always so right on and you do know your Hollywood films. Keep the suggestions coming. My Netflix queue in looking dull.
Hugs and much love from me to you, my friend. Hope all's well with you. ♥
Well, you sure nailed who won. I watched it and enjoyed it even though I haven't seen a single film or performance. It was about creativity, promotion and networking and very relatable to anyone in the arts. I thought Ellen made it almost cozy.
You know how I LOVE the Oscars but I wasn't able to watch because I don't get ABC. I don't even know who all won yet, except for best picture. I agree with all the points you made.
