2014 Oscar Nomimations


The 2014 Oscar nominations were presented this morning (5:30PST is entirely too early, Who chose this time?) by Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth and new Academy president, Cheryl Boone Isaacs.  Many of the nominations weren’t surprises, but some of the snubs were big ones (No love for the Coen Brothers, Tom Hanks, or Fruitvale Station but yay for Jonah Hill, Christian Bale and The Square). The most random nomination came from the Jackass movie, Bad Grandpa in the category of best makeup. Ok. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump.

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards


The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards aired last night on NBC with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I enjoyed last night’s show. Tina and Amy are just sooo good together and should host everything.

Some of the best moments came from unexpected places (Emma Thompson drunk and throwing her shoes on stage) or took place on Twitter (Mia and Ronan Farrow’s tweets on Woody Allen during his tribute). There were also some surprises in the awards winners like Brooklyn Nine-Nine winning best comedy (YAY!!!) to Jennifer Lawrence winning best supporting actress in a motion picture (Noooooo, I love Jennifer Lawerence but Lupita Nyong’o was robbed!!). The only other surprise for me was Amy Adams win in the best actress motion picture comedy musical category.

Trailers Galore – ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’


YESSSSSS!!! Christmas came early last night when Lionsgate dropped the trailer to the second installment of the Hunger Games series, Catching Fire. This book is my favorite in the series so they MUST bring it and from the looks of the trailer it looks like they did. Everyone is giving it from Donald Sutherland to Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson. We also get to see more of Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, who was absent in the first movie. Ahhhh it looks so good. I cannot wait. Check out the trailer below.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters right on time for the Thanksgiving holidays, November 22, 2013.

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place last night and it was definitely a memorable evening. The event was hosted by funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who took the reins from Ricky Gervais who hosted the show for the last 3 years.

Hunger Games


I’m sure people are getting tired of all the hype that has been around The Hunger Games for over a year now. Well the hype is warranted. I read Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy last year when a two of my co-workers (Hey Lauren and Steph) couldn’t believe I hadn’t read them. I borrowed the books and I loved them. They were just so much fun to read and quite the page turners. So when I heard the movie was getting made, I was very much invested in who they would cast as the characters from this book and was very much obsessed with every casting announcement they made.

After all the hype and crazy promo for this movie, it came out this weekend and I actually went and spent my 12 hard-earned dollars on it. Everyone else seemed to go spend their money on it as well since it pulled in $155 million this weekend. I thought it was a good movie. I was almost completely satisfied with it. Anyone who sees a screen version of a book they have read will never be completely satisfied with the finished product. So with that I went in just trying to watch this movie like I would any other one.

The movie was good. Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class; Winter’s Bone) ughh I just love her. I think she was the perfect Katniss. I can’t even think of what other actress could have portrayed her. I also liked Josh Hutcherson (Bridge to Terabithia; The Kids Are Alright) as Peeta. He was just what I had imagined. Peeta in books was taller though but that is a small detail that I can get past. Lenny Kravitz as Cinna, I thought was good but my love for Lenny could have clouded any kind of unbiased look at his acting that I had. He was just so beautiful. I just gosh. That man hasn’t aged a day in 20 yrs. The whole cast was pretty good overall.

I liked the look of the movie as well. I think the styling overall and everyone’s look was pretty good except for the fire dress. Huge letdown.  Gosh Katniss looked so ridiculous twirling in that thing. Other than that I was good with it. I can’t wait until the next movie, Catching Fire. In the words of Penny Hartz from Happy Endings, It’s gonna be AH-MAH-ZING!!!! While I wait until the second movie, I shall just reread the trilogy again.

Were you one of the many that watched this weekend? What did you think?
