For multiple years, I have taken part in Dell’s Against the Crowd Blogathon. Last year, because I completely blanked out about it, I missed it. This year I’m participating again because this is one fun blogathon! The idea is to pick one movie that everyone loves but you dislike, and vice versa. To go against the crowd! I’ve traditionally picked romance movies to defend so this year won’t be any different. It’s also a bit sad that I have so many romance movies up my sleeve at this point. There seems to be a lot of hate for them, even the good ones. So it’s not surprising this genre has dwindled over the years.
Here we go, first Thursday of 2019 is upon us like nothing has changed! Well, few things have changed – all new topics for an entire year and a new header image! I’ve been participating since mid 2016, so it’s been quite a while now. This series is probably the most consistent thing in my life, and makes Thursdays almost as great as Fridays. So here we go, let’s get the 2019 Thursday Movie Picks up and running!
Starting from today, I’m officially living my last year in my 20’s. Yes, I’m twenty fucking nine and I couldn’t be more scared. Sure, I’m still young and youthful, but I sometimes wonder back to that 16 year old me, who dreamt of a career I couldn’t be furthest from, and feel as if I’ve let her down. But that’s just the birthday-blues talking, and I’m almost used to it because I’ve had these feelings for the past few years now. So instead of actually feeling sorry for myself, here is today’s CB featuring a graph for m.brown because he does not know what a Sam-gasm is….
I became a LAMB in November 2011, over a year after I started blogging to spread the word about Mettel Ray (then known as Mettel Ray Movie Blog) and to be apart of a very large community of movie bloggers. I think I was even a contributor and everything, which is why it’s actually baffling to me that I can’t remember why I stopped. Did I even give in my resignation? Did I just forget that I was a LAMB with university taking over my life? I did go through a lot of rough years with my blog during university as well, so it might have been my own personal crisis that pulled me away from that community. But that is not the point of this post! The point of this post is to talk about the upcoming Oscars, and more importantly, the Best Supporting Actor category. So I’m here to present my (maybe not so biased) list of all the fine actors nominated this year, discussing their performances and their chances of winning this year.
