7 Greatest Performances: Christian Bale

Christian Bale is quite possibly one of the greatest British actors of all time. Causing chaos at the Golden Globes when some people didn’t realise that he is Welsh! I found that very amusing but also confirmation that he is therefore a truly outstanding actor! He has been nominated four times for an Oscar-winning for his supporting role in The Fighter.

He is very well-known for his serious method acting and really becoming the character. This has resulted in serious weight loss and weight gain over the years to achieve a totally different look. Not forgetting his working out to become Batman for Christopher Nolan!

He is certainly one of my favourite actors and here are my choices for his 7 Greatest performances . . . (So far) . . .

Musical Moments – Baby, It’s Cold Outside (Neptune’s Daughter)

I’ve decided to go with some controversy for this weeks musical moment. You may have heard last week that radio stations were banning Baby, It’s Cold Outside from its playlists this Christmas. I personally think it’s crazy to change the meaning of older songs!

The song is Oscar winning and was in a film called Neptune’s Daughter in 1949!

What are your thoughts on this one?

7 Greatest Performances: Julia Roberts

Oscar Winner
Oscar winner for Erin Brockovich

You may or not be aware that Julia Roberts is my all time favourite actress (Sorry Meryl/Catherine Zeta Jones) so I thought I would start a new series of blog posts 7 Greatest Performances and who better to start with than Julia Roberts? This will be looking at the best performances from different actors rather than judging just the film. I thought this would create some very good and interesting lists, as the greatest performances are not necessarily in the best films. This comes on the back of seeing Wonder over the weekend which I thought she was just amazing in!

Happy 80th Birthday Jack Nicholson!

Today marks the 80th Birthday for one of my favourite actors Jack Nicholson. I just had to have a blog post to celebrate this but it won’t be the only one as I am also taking part in a Blogathon so you will have to watch out for that post as well!

So why not celebrate as well? What is your favourite Jack Nicholson film and/or performance?

Oscars 2017: Best Supporting Actress Winner!

Rightly so to Viola Davis for her very emotional role in Fences, and we get a very emotional speech. I think this is one of those awards that she really did deserve it for her incredible performance, in her third nomination.

Ahh she’s used the Captain, O my Captain for Denzel. So much love going on here!
