How many of you watched the Oscars this year? How many of the movies that were nominated had you seen? I hadn't seen a lot of them at the time of the Oscars, but I'm glad Argo won for Best Picture. I'm personally not a fan of Quentin Tarantino so didn't care about his win for Best Original Screenplay or Christopher Waltz for Best Supporting Actor in Django Unchained. I'm also not a fan of musicals, so gave Les Miserables a pass. I'd already read the book at university and had seen the version with Liam Neeson years ago. Recently, I read the book Silver Linings Playbook and could not imagine how they'd make that into a movie, so also gave that one a pass.
I do enjoy the movies and now that I have a large screen television set, I'm able to watch them in peace and relaxation at home. We have seen Skyfall (amazing song by Adele, by the way) and Flight at home and are planning to watch Zero Dark Thirty soon. There are some, however, that one absolutely must see on the huge movie theater screens - Life of Pi for one!
What was your favourite movie of the past year? What was your favourite moment at the Oscars? Mine was when Jennifer Lawrence fell as she was mounting the stage to get her award - she was very mature about it and went on to give a most momentous speech in thanks. Now on to your M posts!
