★ Well, the Oscar nominees are in, so it's that time again:
♪ Nicole deserves to win (though I doubt she will since she's already won once before and I don't think the academy is ready to make her 'Nicole Kidman: two time Oscar winner'), but I want Natalie to because it's criminal that she doesn't have one. Lol. I guess Nat's role is the kind that the academy loves. There is that transformation the actor needs to make both physical and mentally. Plus there are many different sides to Nina that we are shown. Nicole was really good at the whole emotional/crying thing but aside from that there wasn't much else there compared to Nat. Anyways, without picking favorites I genuinely think Natalie will win.
♪ I haven't seen Blue Valentine yet but I've heard Michelle was fantastic in it; happy that she wasn't snubbed.
♪ Happy to see Mark Ruffalo get nominated. It’s his first Oscar nomination after several previous performances that were certainly worthy of consideration. He most likely won’t win though - look for either Jesus Christ Bale or Geoffrey Rush – but it’s a deserving nomination.
Oh and also one more thing;
★ I don't know how I avoided it this long, but The Walking Dead is pretty damn fantastic. I'd never have thought I'd be into something like that, but I LOVE THIS SHOW. Andrew Lincoln is hot.
It's an excellent show regardless of your interest in zombies. It explores the human relationships stressed to the limit in dire situations which is ripe for good drama. Don't get me wrong...there is still a bunch of zombie goodness to enjoy, but the main focus and where most of the drama is created is from the human interaction between all of the survivors. It is a lot like Battlestar Galactica in that respect. There, all humans but 50K die in a robot uprising and now they must survive. But it isn't (just) a show about robots. So you should all give BSG a change. (can't resist a shameless plug) I STILL MISS THIS SHOW SFM. I AM HOPING MY CAPS LOCK WILL CONVINCE EVERYONE.
★ Speaking of BSG, just saw the news! Jamie
*I SEE DEAD PEOPLE FACE*
*this scene with little girl just rips my heart*
*Need to watch more Andrew Lincoln stuff to appreciate his hotness. Or possibly I'm just looking for an excuse to watch Teachers.*
(since I drool everytime he appears in a movie I'm watching, I think I'm gonna stick with this show)
