Watched the Oscars this morning - some excellent winners (Adele - Skyfall for one - her performance was outstanding) one of which was this:



Paperman - which showed in front Wreck It Ralph. If the director is not snapped up by Pixar for a feature length film, there really is no justice.

Not ded, really, really boring at present.

I haven't spoken about the Oscar Season 2012 - but the embedded video says a lot as far as I am concerned.

Posting this so a) I don't lose it. For someone who finds info for a living, I sure as heck have trouble keeping track of it sometimes (or at least, that's what I tell the students - it gets them to think about saving stuff. Pinboard is my friend, so let this be a secret between us, yes?)

b) I can watch it with sound. I have no speakers where I am right now and no headphones either



Snubbed 2012: An Oscar Tribute

Also posting this here, because I'll forget it by October/November/When The Nominations Open...

Fandom to nominate for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide: Haywire (2012) (Dir: Steven Soderbergh)

Saw this in a *freezing* cold cinema earlier this month (no, really, it was, the heating had packed up! And it was on the tail end of Snowapocalyse 2012 too) but thoroughly enjoyed it. A spy/revenge flick with a female lead (the awesome Gina Carano) , who is *more* than capable of handling herself/whatever is thrown at her.

It also has a shopping list of gorgeous guys (including Baby!Obi-Wan and Baby!Magneto) in it as well, Small Spoiler Is Small ).

Simply put - I want the further adventures of Mallory Kane. Or possibly a story where Paul has a change of heart (and most likely, career) and well... Shallow monster is very shallow!
This is not news.

So, that is me - How Are You Guys?

Christmas presents - *All* purchased, just not wrapped yet. Get that done one evening this week.

[livejournal.com profile] secret_mutant - written (for the third time) and now with a beta - came in at 2700+ words. Written pretty much in one sitting. I am... 'quietly' pleased with it. Am hoping to send off by Wednesday if not sooner.

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide - finished and also, with a beta. Again, 'quietly pleased' with the outcome. Ditto with being completed by Wednesday. Am planning to write at least a treat in the same verse. Should be interesting!

Still, want to watch ALL THE MOVIES but that can wait until the week between Christmas and New Year. I'll have the time to do so for a start; whether everything I want to see will be available is... another matter entirely. I try to see as many of the 'award contender' films as possible, before the Oscars. I haven't gotten a full house yet but doesn't stop me from trying!

* * *

In other news - I've been uploading my old fics to Archive Of Our Own (AO3). I've still got quite a way to go before everything is there. Even so, I will say that the 'Kudos' button is the most amazing thing evar! Nothing like getting an e-mail to say that someone liked your story;)

Right - forwards

*I* try to predict the Oscars!

For those of you who don't care - read a 'nice' article from the Daily Moan (?!) It's worth reading just for his missus' 'initial' reading of his 'sexuality'...


Okay - on the whole - these will cover who I think will win. Not who I want to win (because in most categories - they're two totally different things) that is, of course, if they were *nominated* in the first place (paging Christopher Nolan!).

So - let's see how close to the mark I get.

BEST PICTURE
The King's Speech - I've spoken my piece and stand by it.

BEST DIRECTOR
David Fincher

BEST ACTOR
Colin Firth

BEST ACTRESS
Natalie Portman

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Christian Bale (This is the one I am *rooting* for - Nolan won't be up on that stage tonight - but if this guy gets up there - I will be a mollified monster)

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Helena Bonham-Carter

BEST SCREENPLAY
adapted - The Social Network: Aaron Sorkin

original - The King's Speech: David Sendaris
By rights - this should be Chris Nolan's for the awesomeness that was Inception but it won't be. There will be other years for Nolan for the Academy to shut him out and ignore him as Sendaris has paid his 'dues' and waited out the Queen Mum and beaten cancer to get this far.

The Academy grok Sendaris' 'journey'. For Nolan to win - he'd have to come down to the Academy's level - which is something I hope he never does.

*Peers down at the soapbox that's appeared under her feet* - I wonder where that came from...

BEST SCORE
Alexander Desplat - The King's Speech

BEST SPECIAL EFFECTS
Inception (this is regarded as being Inception's for certain - hardly a surprise;))

BEST ANIMATED FILM
Toy Story 3 (This has nothing to do with my 'annoyance' at the the whole 'American' kids and 'Scottish' adults thing in How To Train Your Dragon - Pixar are usually unbeatable)

BEST SOUND (two catergories)
INCEPTION for both.

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY
True Grit - this is Roger Deakin's NINTH nomination - someone please give him the award?.

BEST EDITING
INCEPTION - okay, okay! The King's Speech (Lee Smith wasn't even nominated grumblegrumblesnarl!) This is important as every film that has won this has won the Best Picture Oscar for at least the last 15 years (or more)

BEST ART DIRECTION
The King's Speech

I've left out 'Song', 'Documentary', 'Foreign Language' and 'Shorts' catergories as I haven't got the first idea (and even the third or fourth is usually *wrong*!) so, if anyone wants to guess - be my guest!

So - there you go. Knowing my luck - I've gone and jinxed nearly everyone I've noted in these catergories (in some cases - this is a good thing, others - not so much!) Anyway - I'll be watching tomorrow morning (UK time) so I'll see how right (or wrong!) I was.

Thoughts?

Which explains why I haven't been posting around these 'ere parts for a while. The most 'interesting' things (that do *not* involve movies) I have been doing recently have been trying out a new contact lens make (verdict - owowowow) and buying books (for myself).

Not that this is incentive for anyone or anything to make my life 'interesting' by any means. I like *boring*. It's just that it doesn't make for good blogging!

***

On the subject of books - whomever has been raving about The Hunger Games... thank you. I read the first book in about four days. Which is damn good going. The other two are now on order from Amazon.

For those of you considering reading these - I'd recommend the first one certainly. And no one spoil me, please.

***

On the subject of books - I'm currently reading Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovich. I'm two chapters in and... I think the best way I can describe it is one part Hot Fuzz (alas minus the homoeroticism) and three parts The Dresden Files.

I fear that I may be reaching for my next book before too long - which is a good thing. Will report back when I finish it.

***

Changing the subject to music for a moment - does anyone have a *legal* copy of The Black Hole soundtrack that can be loaded onto a computer? It's asking for a lot, I know, as the only copy I can find is on US iTunes (which, being from the UK, is as much use as a chocolate fireguard!) but I thought I'd ask.

On a similar note - Pictures of the packaging for the 'Tron: Legacy' Blu-ray/DVD. WANT!

***

Time for a random photo snurched from Twitter (three good guesses *who* one of the subjects is...) The Old and New faces of TV astronomy.

Also - related to the above (especially if you think like *me*) The captions say these are photos from CERN - I'd say the Grid from 'Tron' meself!

***

Related to the above (again!) - Wonders Of The Universe starts on Sunday 6th March at 9pm. Which means that it's on the same time as Being Human for two episodes. Thank the Flying Spagetti Monster for BBC iPlayer and DVRs! Also, if anyone can choose what to watch and what to tape from those two - congratulations! you are a better person than me. Trufax.

***

*Still* on the subject of telly (paging [livejournal.com profile] nialla42!)- Hawaii Five O (2010) - yay or nay?. It, too, is on at 9pm, Sunday on Sky One, so is it one to have a looky-loo (most likely through catch up services - it's the BAFTAS next week. Or rather Inception plays the bridesmaid *again*) or no?

***

And so, how are yous guys?

2011 Oscar Nominations

Things AMPAS got right:
127 Hours nominated for Best Picture. Ditto James Franco in the Best Actor category for the same film.

Helena Bonham Carter nominated for The King's Speech - her performance was as good as Firth's in that film.

Christian Bale for The Fighter - I haven't seen it yet but Christian Bale is an awesome actor whom I've loved since Equilibrium

Toy Story 3 gets a nod in the Adapted Screenplay category.

Hans Zimmer's soundtrack for Inception being nominated. That CD leaves my car over my cold dead bod.


Things AMPAS got wrong
Christopher Nolan not being nominated for Best Director. What (or who) does he have to do to get nominated?

Inception not being nominated for Best Editing (a must have to stand a snowballs of getting Best Picture)

No nomination for music *or* for SFX for Tron: Legacy. You can say what you like about that film I won't be listening to you but those were two of it's strengths.

No costume nomination for The Black Swan. It's a superb film (review to follow!) and while I can understand that Clint Mansell's score is ineligible (seriously - it's Pop Will Eat Itself Does Tchaikovsky - in a good way) but that's going too far.

So - in short... same stupidity, different year.

No, I didn't stay up 'til *stupid* o'clock to watch the ceremony (been there - done that, got the sleep deprevation to prove it!). I taped it via my handy dandy DVR (and made judicious use of the FF button this morning;))

So - being possibly one of the few women who watch as much for the clothes as for the films... I give you my take on events!

The Good )

Changing tack now...

The Bad )

And now the ugly - which was me talking with my mum when I was watching the announcement of 'Best Make Up' - I poo pooed Star Trek winning because - The Academy Do Not Do Science Fiction (I think Return of the King was the last SF/F film to win this catergory), saying it would be The Young Victoria... Never been so glad to say I was wrong *evar!*

As for the clothes - most looked lovely but some were meh (the reliance on ruffles was not a good look) but some like Ms Weaver and Dame Helen Mirren were just amazing. Empire has pictures!

So yes, that's done and done for another year. I need to watch more films, that much I know!

Okay, this is more for me to be able to point and laugh/screech 'I SO TOTALLY ROOL' next year... even so...

Best Picture shortlist extended to ten for 2009 ceremony

Leaving aside any 'quality' issues (Crash was a better film than Brokeback Mountain? And how many moons revolve around your planet?) I think this could be an utterly *awesome* move.
Okay - it's really a year late (Dark Knight was a worthy film but Wall*e - utterly robbed!) but I suppose there is a case for 'better late than never'.

Not to mention - it *might* actually get more (gosh, shock horror) *popular* films nominated for the big prize. They won't win (Star Wars was nominated in '77 but obviously never won) but at least they get the kudos and AMPAS (aka 'The Academy') get the tv ratings they crave. Ratings always spike when there is a 'popular' film nominated - e.g. Return of the King.

So - my 'suggestions' are as follows...

Up - Pixar - need I say any more? That and it's an utterly magnificent film. that I want to see again NOW
Avatar - Yes, it's James Cameron, but only if the story is as awesome as the visuals are supposed to be. Can't you tell that I'm not convinced by the hype yet?
And the real dark horse... Star Trek. You think I'm kiddin? It's been a critical and commercial success...

As I said earlier - putting this up so I can point and laugh hysterically and how far out I was... or gloat at how right I was. I may add to it in time.

Time will tell.

Not to mention... I promise to talk about something *other* than movies soon!

Before anyone decides to take me at my word about shooting me if I signed up for any more ficathons... I've signed up with [livejournal.com profile] femme_fic, who are running a ficathon dedicated to female friendship and characters.

The 411 and timeline

If you look at the list of fandoms covered, there is at least one fandom that most folks around here could write for... *coughNCIScough*!
So - go on... have a go!

***

Oscar nominations have been announced

I have come to the conclusion that I am a very bad movie fan as I haven't seen *any* of the Best Picture nominations (to be fair, two haven't been released in the UK yet!).

Secondly - I am tempted to stay up and watch the ceremony (it starts about 2.30am in these parts!) just to see if the Writer's Strike (please, Goddess of Geeks, let it be peacefully settled by then!) has an effect.

I can say that I've seen two of the three Best Animated nominees, mind, and I still say Pixar for the win. But I am biased as it was my favourite film of '07!

- Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] surrealphantast May it be a great day and a wonderful year, filled with lots of wonderful stuff

- I'm not sitting up for the Oscar ceremony this year. It will be the first time in 5 years that I haven't sat up. Mainly because I have a meeting in the morning and because there is nothing I'm really rooting for. Apart from Marty Scorsese for Director and Pan's Labryinth for Best Foriegn. 'Sides, I'll catch up on all the 'best' (the fashions darlink!) stuff over the week.

- Have written nearly 800 words today. Might need another 800 words but I'm kinda pleased with what I've gotten done so far. This is for the [livejournal.com profile] twdw_ficathon that has a deadline of 11/3. Only one problem. The next 800 odd words are going to be the troublesome ones!

- I have drunk faaarr too much diet coke. Am currently in 'Abby' mode. Alas, without gorgeous boss kissing me on the cheek and equally lovely friend/co-worker calling me his 'lotus blossom';)

- Abby rules. But... y'all knew that didn't you. Her 'Mommy and Daddy fighting' routine from 'Twisted Sister' is just comedy gold. Not to mention that she sounds deeper than Gibbs when she impersonates him;)
