I'm in the midst of one of those very full weeks. (Actually, I'm now on the downhill side of the very full week. So yay.) Running around too much to blog. Mind too preoccupied for creative thought. Just . . . one of those weeks.
How about an Oscars update?
If you look closely down at the lower right corner, you can see my "still to see" list. Three to go! (See how I did that there? With the three? For Thursdays?)
1 - At Eternity's Gate (Willem Dafoe is up for Best Actor in this one). We'll be checking this off our list tonight, though, as it's here in town and we've already made reservations.
2 - Can You Ever Forgive Me (Melissa McCarthy is up for Best Actress and Richard E. Grant for Best Supporting Actor). I've been waiting and waiting to see this one -- but it just hasn't come to town yet. It just came out on DVD, so maybe I'll have to break down and purchase it if it doesn't show up in the theater here before February 24.
3 - Cold War (Pawel Pawlikowski is up for Best Director for this movie). This one might be the real bug-a-boo for us this year. Our local theater showed the previews for Cold War months and months ago, but either it hasn't been here yet -- or it wasn't on my radar when it showed up. Either way . . . there is no sign of it locally. And it's not yet available on DVD. (Keep your fingers crossed for me, okay?)
We have seen all the movies up for Best Picture -- and, really, neither Tom nor I have a real favorite this year. They're all good -- and very different. (Forced to choose, I would probably pick The Favourite or BlacKkKlansman.) (My real favorite? Glenn Close in The Wife. If you have a chance to watch it, do! It's an excellent movie -- and she is fabulous.)
How about you? Any favorites this year?
