My 10 Minutes of Fame

24 Feb

My best friend won tickets to the Oscar Gala in Kingston, and she is bringing me! We get to walk the red carpet, have our own paparazzi, drink champange, and live a glamorous night. We are watching the Oscars at the Grand Theatre in style. I’m so excited! Pics will be posted after the event Sunday ­čÖé

Oscar Nominations!

24 Jan

The Oscar noms came out this morning and I was super excited. My friends and I predicted  the nominees and we were right about some of them:

Rooney Mara for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Viola Davis for The Help, George Clooney for The Descendants and Michelle Williams for My Week with Marilyn. Usually the Golden Globes are clues as to who will be nominated. I was really happy to see that Melissa McCarthy, Jessica Chastain, Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill were almost nominated. I have been watching the Academy Awards since I was 4, thanks to my grandma. Until I was about 7 or 8, I really never fully understood what was going on, and now I watch them religiously. I love the glitz and glam, the fashion, the speeches, the hosts (most of the time) and the winners. The feeling to win an Oscar must be indescribable, receiving the highest honor in the film industry by your peers.
