....well certainly not to me that's for sure! And also not to the people I wanted it to. I know the Oscars was a few weeks ago now but I'm playing catch-up. I love a good awards ceremony, I'm sure I've mentioned that on blog posts before now I'm sure. Not just for the movies, but for the glamour. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the BAFTAs this year and would have watched The Oscars had they not been on Sky Movies. Tsk.
I enjoy seeing clips of films that I may not ordinarily pay attention to - I've definitely found a few new ones to add to my "must-see" list this year but more than anything I love to see what everyone is wearing. Shallow? Yes. I always have my favourites and I think this year Natalie Portman did it for me.
What can I say? I am a sucker for a) a red dress and b) a polka dot. How gorgeous does she look?
The other person that stood out for me was Meryl Streep. Do you think she intended to come dressed as an actual Oscar?
Either way she looked radiant and she's a fabulous actress so her win was well deserved.
To celebrate Oscar season, the nice kind people at Warner Bros very kindly sent me a special package. I'm currently loving Warner Bros's special packages they send me. They're normally jam-packed with great films and usually contain something I can eat.
How can you fail to not be excited by a box like that, just waiting to be opened?
As usual I wasn't disappointed, and my something edible was provided in the shape of an Oscar lollipop! I hid this from the children and scoffed it in secret because I am that kind of mother. The films? I was sent Doctor Zhivago, An American in Paris, The Blind Side and Gone With The Wind. Three classics and one new film and I hadn't seen any of them.
I know that is incredulous. I have never seen Gone With The Wind. I probably shouldn't even say that in public should I? What an admission. I have no idea why I have never seen this film and now I have no excuse really have I? I will get round to watching it very soon, I promise.
I watched The Blind Side last week and quite honestly I'm not sure whether I like Warner Bros for sending me this film or not. I really enjoyed it and found it incredibly moving. (Read: cried like a baby). It's based on a true story and those are always a killer, huh.
And with that I'm going to go and bemoan the fact that the awards season is over. Until next time...
With thanks to Warner Bros for sending me this box of treats!
