Yesterday, LL read my previous blog post and is now calling me Phyllis Stone. He is as weird as I am. I was hoping to do some photography yesterday, but it was blooming cold. Today is suppose to be a little warmer but the rain is coming, but if I can fit in a trip to the Oregon Gardens after it opens and before it rains, I am hoping to get some great shots.
Today is the Oscars. Kane and I have a tradition of going down the list, making our guesses and see who gets most right. Yes we are dorks. I think I am always at a disadvantage because I rarely see any of the movies, but I think I have won the last two years. LL plays also, but he never does well. This year in particular, I have not seen a single movie that is nominated. There are so many categories but here is a few of my guesses.
Best Actor-Colin Firth, I am choosing him because I have loved him ever since he was Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. He is in my heart, the one and only Mr. Darcy. Kara agrees with me, I think.
Best Supporting actor-This one is hard because I have heard Christian Bale was fabulous. But I am choosing Jeffery Rush.
Best Actress-This also is a hard one, from what I heard, it is between Natalie Portman and Annette Bening. I am going to choose Natalie Portman.
Best Supporting Actress-I have been hearing Melissa Leo will get this, but I am going against the tide and choosing Amy Adams. But Hailee Steinfeld might end up winning. Again I have not seen any of the movies, but I love Amy Adams, she is lovely in all that she is in and critics say she was spot on in her role.
Best Picture-Been hearing Black Swan will likely get this, but am going to choose King's Speech. Just because of my love of Colin Firth again.
I usually get the biggies like above wrong, and do well on the awards like screen writers and cinematography. We'll See this year.
Zero Dark Thirty
