Archives For academy awards

Let’s see… *amy opens google calendar*

4 days (technically 3) to Independent Spirit Awards – which I already voted for. If you get i-Sat, they will be broadcasting it on Saturday at 5pm GMT-5.

Following that, ACADEMY AWARDS. BIG BIG day, probably live blog Red Carpet, and complete ceremony. Plus, Hugh Jackman will be hosting, and he’s hot and funny. That’s on Sunday 8pm GMT-5, probably red carpet will beging 3 or 2 hours before that~~~

Next week (25th)~ Backstreet Boys concert! LOL’ I am excited, after missing the one in Vancouver because embassies SUCK hairy balls. On the music front, BSB mania probably begins on Sunday night after Oscar.

6 days after that (March 3rd), anniversary #2 for this WordPress blog.

And finally, on Sunday March 8th – Final two-hour episode of The L Word. Which reminds me… we are on what- episode 5 already?? Where’s Clementine Ford. I demand Shane and Molly scenes!

Short days away from turning 23… O.o

Gosh~~~

*sighs* After that? At least on this blog… Grammy Awards, BAFTAs, Independent Spirits and Oscar! This is the first year I will be watching Independent Spirit Awards on television~~~ thanks to i-SAT who is now part of my cable provider! This is also the first year I get to vote for Indie Spirits~~~ I feel somewhat special… xD just for that.

Also, Coraline opens this week in the US, and next week here in Peru (even though it’s dubbed) – AND +++++ This month brings a new issue (2nd issue, in fact~) of YAM – if you haven’t read our first issue, do so here – this same week (same day as the Coraline opening day, in fact) Guu-Guu Datte Neko de Aru is out on DVD R2 wiht English subs~ My first Juri, first Japanese DVD ever. *excited*

Awarded Movie Watched List

January 27, 2009 — 2 Comments

Last year was a particularly good year for me to watch films. Why? Well, compared to the previous year, in which many or most of the films nominated were still on my ‘to-watch’ list, this year I’ve done all my movie watching before Oscar was announced.

Oscar Ballot 81st - Watched

Green = WATCHED
Orange = Dying to watch~~

Less than a month to Oscar, 4 films I’m dying to see~~ *cross fingers*

Oscar Nominations 2009!

January 22, 2009 — 4 Comments

I do pretty good Oscar prediction nominees, it seems~ 78 of 92 from all categories (minus shorts and docus), and pretty much perfect score on major categories of acting, directing and film~

Surprises? Kate Winslet nominated for The Reader as Best Actress… No Bolt on the Best Song~~~ xD and Slumdog getting a double nod there. Wooo for Richard Jenkins!!

Not so good surprises… Waltz with Bashir snub in the animation category.

And as I predicted Benjamin Button is up for 13 nods (I said 12-14), and Slumdog is up for 10 (I said 9-10) LOL~

Check out the graphic list of nominees, or the print-friendly version that includes “film by awards” and “award # by film”.
