Here we go again! Third year in a row Mettel Ray devours the Oscars together with The LAMB! This time I’m looking at the Best Makeup and Hairstyling category where I happened to predict 1917’s inclusion (being the only one to do so in the Oscar prediction thingie. I did poorly but I got two singular votes for two nominations right so.. personal win there!). Last two years I was certain who was going to win and DID win. This year it’s a bit more difficult. So enough randomness, let’s dive in, shall we!
I have always loved scrapbooks, journaling and notebooks… but from afar. Me actually completing a scrapbook or even a notebook would qualify as a miracle. Therefore I have decided to take my scrapbook dreams and apply them to my blog. For my first attempt to online scrapbook, I’ve compiled my favourite moments, captures, quotes and winners from this year’s award season!
During the announcement for the 90th Academy Award nominees, I was luckily preoccupied with a few work things, and wasn’t paying attention. Good thing too, because the wait, the anticipation and the nerves would have been torture. And the pressure to seek out one particular nomination was also lifted, because right when I logged onto Twitter, I saw what I most wanted to see.
It is time to summarize the Oscar season and get it over with while everything is still buzzing. First up, I didn’t watch the ceremony – it would have been either a super early wake-up process or staying up late til the early hours and.. I love sleeping. Secondly, I was one of those people who wasn’t very thrilled about the Academy Awards in the first place, so this post is quite the achievement.
Another year of movies has passed and after the Golden Globes there is only one big event that puts an end to it all (meaning the last year): The Academy Awards – Oscars. And since I did a post about the Golden Globes I felt that I had to do one about the Oscars as well. Now, I am not gonna predict anything, because my taste is pretty shaky lately due to my school work which would be officially over tomorrow – but I am gonna mention my favorites ( by adding a FAV behind it) from the categories in case I’ve seen most of the nominations. Anyway, here it is – Road to the Oscars 2011:

Wow, if you didn’t do the counting, I’ll do it for you – the most nominations this year went to The King’s Speech (review coming soon) – a total of 12 nominations!
My favorite number by the way. So I guess the question now is, how many it will actually get…
