We are also talking about Duncan Sheik, Melinda Doolittle, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Lee-Hom Wang, Franz Ferdinand… and many other reviews!

Now, if you’re ready~~~ head over here to get it.

Grammy 2009 Winners

February 8, 2009 — 4 Comments

Did you watch the Grammy tonight? I mean, not like I had a choice to watch BAFTAs instead, but I did watch the Grammy on an off, while having dinner and chatting on MSN.

Woooooo! I actually rock~ lol, my wishlist of winners wasn’t too far off on the General Field categories. Quickie predictions weren’t that bad~~

My only pet-peeve miss was Coldplay winning Song of the Year, instead of Adele. I mean, DUH! Adele with Sugarland was pretty amazing, I must confess that I never really paid any attention to Sugarland (I saw them on some Billboard award, so I didn’t think anything of them) – but they were GOOD.

Coldplay also did a better performance than I expected, since they were doing a bit of a crappy job on live performances. Must be the mic, I tell ya. Radiohead also did pretty good~~

Miley with Taylor Swift? Like ZOMG! Miley totally made herself looked SO AWFUL next to Swift. Swift is 19, looks younger, writes and sings better. Miley is 16, looks 25 and sings like she smokes a packet a day. That’s all I have to say. And… Jonas Brothers? Aren’t two of them like in their early 20s? Shouldn’t they have changed their voices by now?

Adele won 2!!! As Sugarland did… Alisson Krauss with Robert Plant won 5 – including Record of the Year and Album of the Year.

All the LONG list of winners, here.

Gosh, February Already!

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*

Thank you, Nate… for poking my eyes on the voodoo dolls you’ve got stash away. Yes, we’ve done YAM. Please, help yourself to some YAM for Xmas over here

Hope you enjoy.

Well… during the past week, every time I’d wake up, there’d be another award nomination announced. Beginning of last week, it began with the Spirit Awards, then Grammy nominations

Then there’s the interminable Top10 Films list around… then there was the National Board of Review’s announcement~ They named Slumdog Millionaire as best film, and included Let the Right One In as one of the Top5 Foreign Films…

Apparently the Satellite Awards nominees were announced on Nov30 –

Today, the Critics’ Choice Nominations were in – There’s a lot of love for Milk, and Benjamin Button… which will probably lead through award season, including Academy Awards. There’s also a lot of love for Anne Hathaway, who will possibly include an Oscar nod for Best Actress. Love for Meryl Streep in Doubt, as well… but apprently no love for Kate Winslet, who was a favorite of many award sites throughout the year as Best Actress for Revolutionary Road, but no love for the film in any of the previously mentioned awards.

There is also love for Let the Right One In, that appears in various lists as either Top Foreign Film, or Top Films of the Year…. I must get the DVD as soon as it’s out.
