Red Carpet : The Oscars 2015

I have been waiting for the Oscars all year!! And the red carpet for sure was my favorite part! As you know we never have a Worst Dressed List, everyone looked absolutely stunning but here are just some of my favorites! My favorite was Anna Kendrick in her custom Thakoon!

Feature Film : Selma : Wild : The Judge

Selma follows Martin Luther King’s campaign to secure equal voting rights via an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965. David Oyelowo plays the inspiring Martin Luther King alongside Oprah Winfrey who plays Annie Lee Cooper as well as produces the film. This period film is inspiring and powerful! Loved watching it! And the music by John Legend and Common is also up for an Oscar!

Wild follows Cheryl Strayed, played by Reese Witherspoon, as she hikes 1,100 miles as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe. This film also received two Oscar nominations, one for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Reese Witherspoon, and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for Laura Dern.

Robert Downey Jr. stars in the film The Judge alongside Robert Duvall, as a big city lawyer who returns to his hometown where his father (Duvall), the town’s judge, is suspected of murder. Hank (Downey Jr.) sets out to discover the truth and, reconnects with his estranged family. Any film with Robert Downey Jr. is a success to me (especially with is sarcastic one-liners)!

Feature Film : American Sniper ; Birdman ; Foxcatcher

One of my favorite films of the Oscar season! Plot: U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) takes his sole mission — protect his comrades — to heart and becomes one of the most lethal snipers in American history. Despite grave danger and his struggle to be a good husband and father to his family back in the States, Kyle serves four tours of duty in Iraq. However, when he finally returns home, he finds that he cannot leave the war behind.

Truly impeccable performance by Bradley Cooper that will lead him to winning Best Actor in a Leading Role at the Oscars! (Fingers crossed)

This film has an all star cast including Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and many more. Michael Keaton plays a washed up actor, who once played an iconic superhero, who battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself in the days leading up to the opening of a Broadway play. Who else is cheering for Emma Stone to win the Oscar this year! (ME)!

I don’t even want to tell you the plot of this film because it is not as good as the entire movie!!!!!!! LITERALLY NO WORDS! And can I point out that while watching I had an epiphany that the main character was once The 40-year-old Virgin! Crazy good film!

Feature Film : Into the Woods + Maleficent

Curl up with a nice cup of coffee (adult hot chocolate) snuggled under some blankets and pop in a movie! Doesn’t this sound like the perfect way to end the weekend! Today here are a couple movies to end the week (or start the week)!

Into the Woods is packed with A list actors such as Chris Pine, as the prince charming, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Meryl Streep as the Wicked Witch, Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf, and Emily Blunt as the Bakers Wife! This film is the off spring of Les Miserables and all the Disney Princesses movies! What’s not to enjoy?

Maleficent tells a different story of the classic Sleeping Beauty, instead it follows Maleficent, the vengeful fairy who is driven to curse the princess. Only to later realize she may be the only person who can restore peace to their troubled land. Angelina Jolie is impeccable, as well as Elle Fanning and let’s not forget Vivienne Jolie-Pitt (yes that is Brangelina’s daughter) who plays the young Aurora. Although the actors were amazing the one thing that impressed me most was definitely the Costume Design by Anna B. Sheppard. It’s no wonder the Costume Design is nominated for an Oscar, this is Sheppard’s third nomination for this category. She was previously nominated for The Pianist and Schindler’s List.

Feature Film : Begin Again

This is a truly stellar movie, there’s songs that literally describe your life, there’s humor that is dry and sarcastic, it has been nominated for an Oscar, and there’s Adam Levine (need I say more?). Instead of describing what it is about here is the trailer and a couple of my favorite songs from the film! … Enjoy!

Feature Film : Gone Girl

Here is yet another Oscar nominated film, Gone Girl. Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn (AH-MAZE-ING book) “Amazing Amy” is missing and is suspected to have been killed by her husband Nick (Ben Affleck) who slowly starts having secret after secret come out at the worst possible time! If you haven’t read the book or seen the movie, then this is on the top of your To-Do before the Oscars…then you will see and understand why Rosamund Pike is nominated for Actress in a Leading Role! …MIND BLOWN…

The Academy Awards : Nominations!

It may be Super Bowl Sunday and the one day every female goes all out and throws an amazing get together for football, but we all know that after today everyone is going to binge watch all the Oscar movies (no? just me?). Well be prepared to watch the best Oscar nominated movies (or at least my favorites) every weekend leading up to The Academy Awards  on Feb 22. Here is a list of my favorite Oscar Nominated movies this year (or at least a list of ones that I will watch before the Award show). For the full list of all the nominees head to
