Movie Mondays ~ Monday, February 18, 2019

After I took a closer look at my Oscar Run success so far (or lack of it), which I blogged about and shared with you Saturday, I realized that I needed to kick my Oscar nom viewing into third gear, so I’m happy to say that I’m set to finally catch more of the films with plenty of Oscar Run noms in the next few days to come, as well. More on those films next week but as for this week…here are my thoughts! And as always, thanks for reading. ~ Chris K.   FILMS VIEWED WEEK OF 02/11/2019 – 02/17/2019   24. Bohemian...

Special Oscar #dailypics Series

Yesterday, I teased to this news in my #dailypics photo on Instagram, but today is the official launch of a special photo series for the week ahead. Welcome to #dailyoscarbestpics! For the next seven days, you will get a glimpse at Oscar history with my interpretation/reenactment of Best Picture winners of the past. It may arrive in the form of a scene from the film, a symbolic or metaphorical representation of the title or maybe even an attempt to recreate the movie poster…whatever I can muster with my limited resources and talents!...

Oscar Run and The Nom Tally… So Far

Oscar Run and The Nom Tally… So Far

Back in late January, I shared with you about my annual Oscar Run right after the Academy Award nominations were announced. It’s a tradition of mine for decades to try to see all of the nominees for the core six performance and directing categories (best actor and actress, best supporting actor and actress, best director and best picture). This year, I upped the ante and added four other categories (#whatthehellwasIthinking) I included the nominees for adapted screenplay, original screenplay, documentary feature and animated feature....

Thursday Thoughts: poets.org ~ Academy of American Poets

When Thursday comes around, it means another chance to celebrate words with others who love them, too. And this is no ordinary Thursday. It is the sweetest Thursday of them all in 2019. I am wishing a very special Happy Valentine’s Day to my blog readers. For this edition of THURSDAY THOUGHTS, I wanted to pick an especially sweeeeeeet site and nothing says “love” like the doting words of a good poet.   How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when...

Movie Mondays ~ Monday, February 11, 2019

When the week started, I thought I was finally seeing an Oscar nominee I was excited about – - – even if it was just a nominee for screenplay (and song, too). But I kept watching, and well, you’ll read more about that experience soon. I continued this week on my annual Oscar Run, this year across 10 major categories. After finishing the first film of the week, I decided to take a break from the Oscar noms and catch a few almost-noms, films that qualified for this year’s Oscars but weren’t nominated even though...
