This was probably the nicest moment and speech when Thelma Schoonmaker was awarded with the BAFTA Fellowship award. Long time film editor for Martin Scorsese and a three time Oscar Winner!
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) . . .
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!
