Happy 63rd Birthday Richard E. Grant!

That’s right today is the legend that is Richard E. Grant’s 63rd birthday! He has been keeping everyone entertained on Twitter during lockdown with his Withnail & Isolation quotes, which really are a big highlight of this tough time!

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the many different roles he has taken on and hope that we get to see his amazing turn in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie film version in October!

Oscars 2019 – Best Actress

This year for the Best Actress in a Leading Role is a pretty strong one in all honesty and I personally think that is a fantastic thing for women in film! Considering everything that has happened in a past year or two we have seen a rise in good roles for women.

Oscars 2019 – Luncheon

91st Oscars®, Nominees Luncheon, Class Photo

Each year in the build up to the Oscar ceremony The Academy host a Luncheon for all of the nominees and previous winners as well I must add. This happened yesterday and something that it always creates is some great photos!

I also must mention that Richard E. Grant is already winning Oscar season with his fanboy nature at all of the awards events and taking many selfies with different actors! (Richard E. Grant’s Twitter feed).

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!

The Favourite leads the way with 10 nominations but is it the favourite to win?

The Favourite along with Roma have both been nominated for 10 Oscars which is the most for 2019. This year feels a little bit strange though when it comes to awards season and I don’t particularly have a film that I am backing all the way in terms of totally loving it. Unlike previous years, so I guess it makes this year a little bit more interesting in terms of who could win on the night. It feels a little bit more open!

A couple of surprise omissions happened though with Timothee Chalamet overlooked for his incredible performance in Beautiful Boy and not forgetting that, Bradley Cooper didn’t get a nomination as Best Director which therefore leaves Cuaron as the biggest lock of the entire ceremony in the Best Director category.
