This week we are back with the Oscar Winners edition for the Thursday Movie Picks series. I am, yet again, running late with the post because I’ve overbooked myself with an article for work. This happens more often than I’d like but that’s just my own fault for not scheduling these Thursday posts. Anyway, as the theme is Best Actor and Best Actress Oscar winners, I’ve decided to do a Thursday first. I’m going to list just two performances, one from each category, that have some meaning to me. You’d think it’s easy but most of my favourite Oscar wins are actually for supporting roles so.. there was some thinking involved.
Another one of those multi-love-story movies that started with Love Actually, continued with He’s Just Not That Into You followed by Katherine Fugate’s Valentine’s Day and now it seems another big holiday that represents love – New Year’s Eve (also Fugate). To be honest, I think these type of movies where so many stories come together and are acted out by the top names in Hollywood are rather awesome. Love Actually of course out of them all is #1 forever (and not just because it’s British but because it is the best) but I find it interesting to see how they keep trying to achieve the same in America.
New Year’s Eve is the next attempt with – now comes the long list of names that I just enjoy reading (underlined are the ones I’m excited to see): Ashton Kutcher, Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Hilary Swank, Josh Duhamel, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Biel, Zac Efron, Abigail Breslin, Alyssa Milano, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sarah Jessica Parker, Halle Berry, Sara Paxton, Sienna Miller, Julie Andrews, John Lithgow, John Stamos, Jon Bon Jovi, Ludacris and etc. So it all comes to this: don’t care about the plots, just want to see the Hollywood movie-stars on the 9th of December!
