Back for the Oscars

For the past five months I often found myself thinking "I should post about this on Livejournal" but then I never got round to it and it got to the point where I felt like I couldn't just come back and start posting without talking about how long I'd been away so I just never came back. So now I'm making myself come back cos I want to be able to just pop on here and post about whatever, especially now that I find myself drifting away from Tumblr more and more.

The Oscars are tonight and I'm pretty sure I'm going to record the ceremony and watch it tomorrow. Part of me wants to stay up and liveblog cos I have fond memories of doing that in the past, but I fear I am getting to the age where staying up until 5am just isn't an option. I am slightly tempted to try and not-quite-liveblog it as I watch tomorrow (cos let's face it, no one is going to be reading my posts as they go up and it's really just for my own amusement that I do them) but I'm not sure I can resist the temptation to just have a quick look at other online things and thereby risk spoiling myself about who wins.

Emma has now joined our predictions game, so there's three of us competing this year. But we have pared the categories back to just the main ones. That's probably sensible cos in the past a lot of the awards have been complete guesses cos I have no idea about them (I did look up the difference between sound mixing and sound editing once, but I still don't really understand it and even if I did I still have no idea which film should win!)

As usual I have seen very few of the films nominated this year. And by "few" I mean "two": Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (nominated for production design and costume design) and Hidden Figures (nominated for actual, proper awards!) It's incredibly unusual for me to have seen a Best Picture-nominated film before the ceremony so I'm quite proud of this feat! And while Hidden Figures was a fantastic film, I still think La La Land will win.

Hey! Nice to "see" you. I know what you mean about being away for a long time. It's hard to dive back in, but that's the only way to get over it in my experience.

Yeah, I think in the future I'm going to try and not feel like I have to explain my absence if I've been away for a while. Just come back and start posting again like I've never been gone!

I would rather see you randomly return without explanation than not see you return at all, for sure.
