Wow oh wow do I love this time of year ! As a member of Screen Actors Guild aka SAG, I feel fortunate to receive “screeners” in the mail. In other words, all of the films from last year that are nominated show up at my doorstep for FREE ! My husband and I enjoy curling up on the couch and watching all of these great works of art from the comfort of our home.
2015 proved to be another terrific year of great art with heavy-hearted subjects such as child molestation, teen abduction, war torn Africa, revenge, survival, gender reassignment, revolutionary music, corporate and Catholic church corruption, world changing ingenuity, forbidden love.
The award shows include the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, Independent Spirit Awards which culminate in the grand daddy of them all – the Oscars. For fun I fondly refer to the Oscars as the gay Olympics. It begins with a grand spectacle of red carpet fodder followed by the unveiling of winners. I adore all of the pomp and circumstance and cry from heartfelt speeches. Call me a sucker cuz I love it all !!!
So I hope you enjoy the Oscars as well on Sunday, February 28th where great art is celebrated one person at a time.
ps – put all your $$ on Leo cuz he’s the top dog this year and well deserved I might add !
