Oscar night!

Look who’s here!

I know I’ve been away for quite a while – forgot all about Fri-DIY and other fun blogging plans… But I’ve been traveling back and forth these weeks and had a lot of work to do so I was too tired to even think of the next post’s topic. Yeah, eventually I’ve cut myself some slack *is that the right phrase to use? sorry if not!* and decided to transform my weekly challenge into the when-i-have-enough-time-and-inspiration thing, and today I have neither. x_X Besides I’ve been awake whole night long watching Oscars 2016 ceremony *it starts at 2 AM if you’re in Ukraine as I am* so that only added up to my squeezed-lemon mood. However, it was a fun night – I really enjoy watching Red Carpet and Ceremony, that’s like my favorite tradition since I was little. πŸ™‚ All that dresses..) By the way, this year was a bit dull in fashion for me so no favorite Oscar dress *except for Naomi Watts’ maybe..)*

But Oscars are not only about dresses for me. I loooove predicting the winners. And yes, I terrrrribly suck at it! πŸ˜› But I still love to do it every year without the slightest trace of shame πŸ˜‰ I’ve been a responsible girl this time and watched 11 movies of 22 nominated *I mean only feature films* so I definitely had my favorites. The biggest revelation for me was “Room”: amazing cast, powerful screenplay, great directing. I’m very happy that Brie Larson received the award in the Best Actress nomination – I really liked her since I’ve seen “Short Term 12”, another great movie. And Jacob Tremblay…) The cutest little talent I’ve ever seen πŸ™‚ And the main word here – talent.

So that was my first favorite. Well, maybe not the first, but one of πŸ™‚ ‘Cause we all know the first one πŸ˜‰ I considered Leonardo DiCaprio a great actor since I’ve first seen “What’s eating Gilbert Grape” movie. He was amazing. And there are lots of other movies apart from “Titanic” that prove he knows what to do on screen) I don’t think that Hugh Glass was his best role, but one of the most powerful for sure. Well. we all know he’s just deserved it. πŸ˜‰ And speaking of “Revenant”, another favorite for me – Emmanuel Lubezki. That gorgeous nature and chasing and diving and don’t let me even start on “Birdman”! So woohoo, that’s a great win! At least something I guessed right πŸ˜‰

There was another nomination I had high hopes for but unfortunately it didn’t work out. I’m talking about Johann Johannsson and his awesome “Sicario” soundtrack. But first of all: Emily Blunt in this movie is AWESOME. And now back to Oscars πŸ˜‰ *Why wasn’t she nominated anyway? Eh..* When I first heard the “Beast” tune from “Sicario” I immediately felt I’m gonna love this movie. And I did. Superb acting combined with harsh reality portrayal – it was a mix just right for my gloomy late winter mood. And apart from Blunt-Brolin-Del Toro’s great acting that musical theme was truly the best part of it. Yeap, it still gives me the chills.) However the award went to Ennio Morricone – and frankly I can’t blame people at the Academy for it. Well, it’s Ennio! πŸ˜‰ So let’s just hope that there’s more to come from Johann – and someday he’ll definitely win!

So that were my favorite Oscar nominees and winners – and I’m really looking forward to hear about yours!)) Was “Spotlight” really the Best Picture for you? Do you think that Hugh Glass is DiCaprio’s best performance? And are you as afraid of the “Beast” as I am?)))

I’d be glad to read your comments! πŸ™‚

  1. Hi there, nice to see you back! (I’ve been kinda away for the last two weeks, too…) I haven’t watched the Oscars as I’m just not that interested in them, although I do believe that looking at all the beautiful dresses must be fun! However, I loved your ‘squeezed-lemon’ mood πŸ˜€ haha!

    • I can see that you’re back too – yay! πŸ˜‰ Yeap, we were checking out the dresses and discussing them online in skype chat with my friends πŸ˜‰ sounds pathetic, I guess, but sadly we are in different cities so only a virtual party could happen) but still fun!
