Musical Moments – Shallow (A Star Is Born) at the Oscars!

Ok, so I kinda wanted to let everything settle with this as people were going crazy saying Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were having an affair. So I would like to claim that it is just a truly outstanding performance, although I don’t imagine I would be too happy with it if I was Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend!

Highly tense and a truly outstanding version of the song. Quite possibly the best moment at the Oscars! It is so very hot . . .

Oscars 2019 – Best Picture

This is always the biggest talking point of any Oscar ceremony and which film will walk away with the title of being Best Picture. I seem to have a love/hate relationship with the winners of this category over the years. It seems to be either my favourite film that wins it or the film I hate the most from the nominees.

This year I feel its been a very strange and odd awards season, with that I don’t really have a film that I totally love out of these eight nominated films. None in this years batch I totally love and I don’t particularly hate with a passion either. I just feel rather neutral towards them. I am hoping that by putting together this blog post that I might be able to make my mind up a little bit more. I just feel as though it is a very weak year in terms of the quality of the films. We shall soon see, so let’s take one more look at the eight films up for the most prestigious honour in film . . .

Oscars 2019 – Best Supporting Actor

The Best Supporting Actor category is often where we can expect an upset and I think it is pretty strong this year, only one of the nominations I find a little weak but I will explain that later. Ali seems to be the clear favourite for the award so I am hoping for an upset so my favourite can win! So it could be an interesting one or it could be the most predictable, not long now to find out though. I love Richard E. Grant and really would love to see him win, surely he would deliver the greatest and happiest speech of all time?

Oscars 2019 – Best Actor

The Best Actor in a Leading Role Oscar is usually a very interesting and good race during awards season. This year it seems Rami Malek is truly leading the chase, Christian Bale has picked up a couple of awards but Malek is certainly the favourite with plenty of controversy around that with how Bohemian Rhapsody has come across.

Oscars 2019 – Best Supporting Actress

This is usually one of the easiest categories to predict but continuing in 2019s absolutely crazy award season it could actually be a rather tricky one. That is a good thing I guess in terms of performances as the award has been shared really between two actresses over the awards season period. So it could have a slight upset if you are having one as your firm favourite.

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.

Music Stars at the Movies

I have recently re-watched the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born and I then received this amazing infographic from Betway with fantastic research around awards and music stars which just seemed like perfect timing. While Lady Gaga has been nominated for her amazing turn in A Star Is Born, the transition from music to film is not always a smooth one. This makes for interesting reading in all honesty, to show that they are either a massive hit or a masssive flop!

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).
