All still stands. Happy Oscars 2017!
The 88th Academy Awards is taking place this weekend. And I enjoy stirring up trouble so thought it would be fun to tell you why I’m not into it.
Though I must add – I genuinely love all of your Academy Awards posts and Oscar love (and George Clooney) – so this is by no means meant to be taken seriously (though I am being serious and don’t call me Shirley).
Without further ado.
1.They’re unnecessary and smug. Most of the people nominated are presumably on some level doing their ‘dream job’ and earning fantastic money and if you’re Leonardo DiCaprio – shagging A LOT of Victoria’s Secret models. So, without sounding moody – why do they deserve extra praise? Aren’t they living the dream already?
No other industry does it. I certainly don’t remember the last time I was invited to the Annual Awards for Services to Auditing and Administration. Do you…

Yeah, I’ve always questioned the legitimacy of the Oscars simply because the winner selection process is discrete.
Wise words 🙂

I agree with you Emma – it’s excessive and usually boring! xoxox
Very!!! Though I like the slip-up this year 🙂 xoxox
Great work Emma, you always know how to entertain.
That’s very kind Vinnie, thanks! 🙂
Sorry I haven’t been on a lot, been preparing for a house move.
That sounds exciting (and stressful!) I’ve not been on much either, I will catch up with all your posts I missed!
I’m at the minute busy with preparations. But I decided to briefly come back and see how everyone is doing.
I already replied at length to last year’s posts so rather than repeat myself, I do have to say that I hope La La Land doesn’t win too many of the big awards.
This may sound curmudgeonly and possibly even mean but having seen it, I don’t feel it is up there as a big prestige film like some of the other nominees. I certainly don’t think the actors were Oscar worthy although they did a fine job within the context of the film.
I realise this makes me sound like the kind of snob who thinks all films should be heavy going (which isn’t true) but La La Land just doesn’t FEEL like a Oscar worthy film in my opinion. Nothing wrong with it, a fun little romp at best, but the hype is too excessive for me to get behind it for award recognition.
Rant over! 😛
Thanks MiB 🙂
I’m not sure I’ll ever even watch La La Land, it’s not really my type of movie. I bet it will win loads of awards though !! 😦
It’s bound to.
BTW – who do I have kill to get a spot on your “Blog I follow” list… 😉 😛
I’ll watch when they bring back Johnny Carson…
I did read and comment on your post last year, so I will just say, “same again.”
I haven’t seen any of the nominated films, and there are only a couple I am remotely interested in.
Oh, and I watched ‘The Guest’ again last night on TV, even though I have the DVD!
(I’m old, and live in Beetley, so Friday nights are not what they once were…)
Take care, honey.
As ever, Pete. XXX
Me too Pete! (Friday nights not being what they once were!)
I’m glad you watched The Guest, I still love that film! I watched Goodnight Mommy and Horns last night, both quite odd, both quite good.
And I’m glad we’re in agreement as usual 🙂 xxx
Also, you’ll dig this:
Thanks Kev 🙂 also I just realised I have an email from you! I will reply today sorry for my slowness 🙂
Bring back Billy Crystal and I’d give it a watch
That’d be fun! Who’s hosting it this year?
Kimmel. He’s a fun guy but he’s no Crystal
Bring back Jack Palance and the one armed push ups, and I’ll watch! Lol
That sounds fun!!! 🙂
