No, not Grouch. Even though I must say I have been identifying with him quite a lot lately. (Why yes, I have been a grouch!)
Tonight I’m off to see a movie that I guarantee will never come anywhere near being Oscar worthy, however, this morning the 2011 Oscar nominations were announced.
With the best picture category now at 10 pictures, I am sad to say that I have only seen four of the movies nominated. (“The Fighter”, “Inception”, “Black Swan”, and “Toy Story 3”) I want to get in the rest of the movies before the awards ceremony but I don’t know if that will happen. I have to say I am pulling for “The Fighter” to win, though I figure that “The Social Network” will take it.
And I really hope that Christian Bale wins Supporting Actor for his role in “The Fighter”. Truly if you haven’t seen this movie, go, go, go!! Amy Adams & Melissa Leo also snagged noms in the Supporting Actress category. It was truly in my top 3 movies of 2010. (One of my other favorites, “The Town”, did not get much love from the academy, but Jeremy Renner did get a Support Actor nom. It is deserved, for sure.)
I also want to see Natalie Portman win for her role in “Black Swan”. The movie is a roller coaster, so utterly depressing to see her fall apart with tragic results.
And, oh let’s face it, I want to see the fashion on the big day!
(And to update: Movie tonight was already booked and that is fine because I think I need to just accept the fact I have the flu.)
