Oscar Wild

Guest Post by Nola West

In anticipation of the 82nd Annual Academy Awards, I am most intrigued by the happenings off-camera. I love these glistening images of backstage embraces, thrills and stoic moments in between curtain calls.


As preparation for an Oscar-viewing party, I am reviewing my ballot and checking it twice. What are my predictions? Well, we better not go there since I have seen only five of the nominated films it would be a bit like entering a basketball pool when I haven't watched a lick of b-ball all year. What are your favorite films from this year, nominated or not?

Thanks for tuning in this week and I hope you have a star-studded weekend!

Frau said...

I have so many favorites! I can't wait to see all the pretty dresses that's really my favorite part.

Those photos have such a nostalgia about them, maybe its the monochrome effect that is grabbing my eye. We don't get to see all the movies in Malaysia and the ones we do get to see are most times edited so to make a selection would fit in your pointed scenario.

Give Will my best!

GOd, how I'd love to be a fly on the wall backstage at the Oscars. Dream...

J: You mean you can't find those illegal camcorder versions of all the latest movies on every corner? :) Well when available to you, I can recommend The Hurt Locker and Crazy Heart.

We are sending our best to you and Court, the Houston Heights Globe Trotters!

I don't think I saw any of the films this year. How pathetic is that?! And then there was some sort of dispute between ABC and Cablevision so I couldn't watch the Oscars at all, just the pre-show:(

I was happy Sandra won though!
