32 Today . . .

I am getting increasingly sad about how big the number is getting. 32 today!!!!!!!!

So for my birthday post today I decided to take a look at who managed to win an Oscar at the age of 32!

Helen Hayes (The Sin of Madelyn Claudet)
Jane Wyman (Johnny Belinda)
Diane Keaton (Annie Hall)

James Stewart (The Philadelphia Story)
Daniel Day-Lewis (My Left Foot)
Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas)
Van Heflin (Johnny Eager)

Directors
Norman Taurog (Skippy)
Damien Chazelle (La La Land)

Something I found rather interesting when it came to putting this post together was that the majority of Oscar winners were a lot older particularly when it came to the male categories. Also in terms of the films above I have actually only watched one of them and it has to be one of my all time favourites*! Maybe I should make it a task to find and watch the rest of them over the next year.

Anyway HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Fangirl Moments – Fatal Attraction Reunion!

I don’t even care if this is a standard thing to do at awards shows and have former co-stars present with one another. Fatal Attraction was a groundbreaking film nominated for Best Picture and at the SAG Awards last night they reunited Glenn Close and Michael Douglas!

Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With in 2018

Throughout 2018 I managed to catch up with 48 older films and have decided to put together a top 10 list out of those films. You will be probably be quite surprised that some of these films I did not see until recently as some quality films. Always good to set yourself a challenge to catch up. I am happy that I managed to get 48 first time watches of films that does not include new cinema releases. With the films I have chosen for my top 10 list I pretty much was left wondering why I had never seen the film before!

Here are the 10 films that have made my list (in no particular order) . . .
