The Next Jodie?

April 8, 2008 — 1 Comment

MSNBC did an article of who could be the next Jodie Foster. Crazyness! LOL’ Their Top5 picks are okay, I guess… but really, the names on the poll. Don’t really dig a few of them. I mean, my respect to Emma Watson, Camilla Belle, Jena Malone, Amber Tamblyn, Clea DuVall… and etc. But Jodie is THE Jodie, LOL’ xD

*EDIT*
Must clarify, the names mentioned above are okay… but Kristen Bell and Kristen Stewart? Pfft

Their Top5 (dunno if by order, though) are: Continue Reading…

Oscar Nominees Announced!

January 22, 2008 — 1 Comment

Nominees for this year’s Oscar nominations were announced while I was sort of sleeping, so I woke up to CNN’s news announcement! Kinda surprising on some categories, but take a look at the list yourself.

Thoughts? Marion and Julie Christie got a nod, so I’m freaking out, ha! It will all be decided next week in the SAG… but still then, it’s not for sure. Moreover, Ellen Page got a nod! I’m happy for her because I loved watching Juno, but I sure hope she doesn’t become my upset. If anyone should beat Cotillard, it should be Julie Christie. Oh yeah, one kind of a surprise was Laura Linney getting a nod instead of Angelina Jolie who had been getting a few more nods this season.

On the animated front, Persepolis against Ratatouille. Interesting who will win, I will give my vote to Persepolis but it’s most likely that Ratatouille will get this year’s Best Animated Feature, as Finding Nemo got it against Les Triplettes de Belleville.

Overall, La Vie en Rose got 3 nods (Best Actress, Best Costume Design, Best Make-up) while Atonement got 7 nods. But that wasn’t enough to beat No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood, which got 8 nods each. People’s fave, Juno, got 4 nods… and Away from Her got 2 nods (including one for Sarah Polley, woot woot). Diablo Cody got a nod for Best Original Screenplay *woot woot*

The biggest surprise for me where the Foreign Film nods, which went to films that others haven’t even mention… which is great because it makes it really interesting to guess!!

Juno Luv

Ellen Page - Juno PreggersThe last time I remember writing a review, it was for Golden Compass. This time I must express my luv for Juno… I instantly fell in luvvvv with the film, and we luvvv Diablo Cody for that. Ellen Page was superb as pregnant teen, Juno, though I admit Juno might be a little too smart to end up in shenanigans like that, but that’s besides the point. Ellen Page = Junoness.

Michael Cera is cute as Juno’s sperminator, while Simmons and Janney do great as the parents who don’t freak out… Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman appear as the couple adopting Juno’s unborn baby. Oh yeah! And I have to mention Valerie Tian as abortion protester/classmate Su-chin (who happens to be from Vancouver, woot woot).

Juno is enjoyable, well acted, and has a rocking soundtrack. It’s a must-watch for people, and it’s a must-have for me! Oh yeah, and how much did all those cute doodling-doodle-dos rock?

I leave you all with a kick-ass interview with Ellen Page from Curve online-mag.

BAFTA Nominations

Okay, I admit it… I’m not as aware of BAFTA awards or nominations as I am of the Academy Award, or the GG… or lately, the SAG… but today we had a bunch of nominees~~

No Country for Old Men, Atonement, There Will Be Blood, The Lives of Others (last year’s Foreign Film winner at the Oscar), The Bourne Ultimatum, Eastern Promises are some of the nominees for Best Film and Best British Film. While the Coen Bros are a shoo-in in the Best Director category~ lol’ Also, they are among the nominees for Best Adapted Screenplay, while Diablo Cody is in for a Best Original Screenplay. Oh yeah, and Ratatouille is a 99,9% winner in the Best Animated Film category.

In the acting categories, Daniel Day-Lewis, Viggo Mortensen, and Ulrich Mühe (RIP, for The Live of Others) are among the Best Actor category; while Julie Christie, Ellen Page and Marion Cotillard will battle the Best Actress one. In the supporting roles, Javier Bardem and Cate Blanchett are most likely to win!

The BAFTA winners will be announced on Feb. 10th!
