You might have seen a few already~~~

I received my Independent Spirit Awards agreement over the weekend, which allows me to get screeners (of some) of the films that will get nominated for the next Indie Spirits, which I just got my notification on Google calendar. xD That means it’s nearly award season, which will bring a LOT of Nomination and Winners posts until the first week of March when the Oscars happen.

In the meantime, here are some Academy Awards posts to keep you busy and updated.

Hope that keeps you busy. xD

Too much to post today, not enough time to single post everything
so another round of shorts here…

First, Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace) has joined Twilight.
WHAT??? Geez… I have nothing left to say about this.

Independent Spirit Awards are ready for a call of entries for the 25th edition:
EARLY DEADLINE:
Monday, September 14, 2009
FINAL DEADLINE:
Tuesday, October 6, 2009

as you may know, Spirit Awards nominations mark the beginning of Award Season~

NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED: Tuesday, December 1, 2009
AWARDS CEREMONY: Friday, March 5, 2010

hmm… March? Later than I expected, but oh well~

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has added more titles for this year’s event, including screenings for Alejandro Amenabar’s Agora (with Rachel Weisz), and Natalie Portman’s Love and Other Impossible Pursuits.

Those are added to the list of Precious, Kore-eda’s Air Doll and Bong Joon-Ho’s Mother, which I mentioned back in this post

and finally… I received an email of Sony Pictures announcing Michael Jackson’s “This is It” – the last rehearsals and behind-the-scenes footage on HD and digital sound to be released on October 30th.

won’t post the “press release” because it’s so long, and to be honest – pretty boring to read.

Spirit Awards 2009!

1.30hrs to the broadcast, but you can head… over  the Film Independent’s Spirit Award website, to see the LIVE blue carpet.

Indie Spirits in my Room

My TV, the Picture in Picture (PIP), and my computer set to Indie Spirits this afternoon~~~

Well, I hope you’ve been watching- only 10 minutes to go… Melissa Leo was the cutest on the interview. The most fun there, actually… Ellen Page was there! Penelope Cruz… Richard Jenkins! James Franco, Mickey Rourke~~~ They also talked about Milk, and all about how they thought of rushing the opening of the film against Prop 8.

This is actually quite an interesting live event, a LOT of talk about films and projects… and minimum glamour and dress talk. I mean, how many times should we hear “who are you wearing?” – Refreshing~~~ other than the missed interviews, even though Film Independent SHOULD get primary spot on the carpet, so no one can skip them~~~ and other weird camera movements…

Kudos to them for the LIVE Event online~~ and hooray for NO RESTRICTIONS!!

I think you can head back to their site just after the broadcast to watch the ceremony, and stuff.

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!
