Oscar Time

*blows dust off journal*

Hey, so I know it's been well over a year since I've actually posted anything here but it's Oscar night and I need to keep myself awake and I have fond memories of liveblogging this event in the past so I thought I would give it another go. Tumblr doesn't really lend itself to the liveblog as well as LJ does.

So far I've seen some people discussing the nominated films and the general consensus seems to be that Selma should have got more nominations, American Sniper is absolutely terrible in every single way, and Boyhood and Birdman are pretentious, overrated and boring. So one of the latter two is definitely going to win then!

As usual Paul and I have made our predictions and this year we have £10 on the line. Well, £10 of something next time I'm in London. If I win I'm going for a cocktail, obviously. I don't know what Paul's thinking of going for, but hopefully I won't find out because I'M GOING TO WIN THIS THING! (maybe)

Also, Mickey from Doctor Who is in the UK studio. It's weird. I keep expecting him to pull out a giant gun and shoot some aliens.

Ooh, dresses! Yes! First up Felicity Jones. Very nice, I approve. =D

I liked American Sniper, personally, and I was against the Iraq war. I also thought Boyhood was great.

Hi, btw!

I've not actually seen any of the films nominated in any of the main categories this year, but the people on my TV who were discussing them earlier were pretty negative!

And, HI! It's been so long! How have you been?

It's been a rough year for me. I had stomach surgery & stayed in the psych ward three times, but I made a good friend while I was there, so at least there was an upside to that. I'm also on disability now.

I'm sorry to hear that. *hugs* But yay for making good friends. And I hope things get better for you. *more hugs*

Thanks, bb. I've missed you on here. Do you think there's a chance you'll start posting more regularly again, or at least reading/commenting on your flist's entries?

I could certainly try! I've been spending most of my time on Tumblr recently, but sometimes I do miss the journal aspect of this site. And I miss you too!
