It’s been a whirlwind few weeks in my life, beginning with excruciating back pain and ending in an amazing new career which has made me feel like I’ve won an award for Best Job! In between (and because I’ve never met an awards show I didn’t like) I’ve also watched the Golden Globes, Super Bowl LI, the Grammys and in a few hours…the Oscars.
I’ve only seen 3 of tonight’s contenders; Hell or High Water (which accurately sums up the movie’s chances of winning best picture), Captain Fantastic (Viggo IS fantastic in this role) and Zootopia (animation – and a whodunit – at its best). Regardless of how many of the nominations I’ve see, each year I fill out a ballot with my predictions and then tune in for the fashion and the flubs. This year will be no different, but if the show gets too boring or the speeches too political I’ll end up exploring newest favorite web ‘rabbit holes’, including…
- An article about a 2016 presidential candidate touring America on a coffin sharped bus to promote transhumanism (a subject I am now strangely fascinated with)
- The Orgami Revolution, a documentary about the science and mathematics behind the art of paper folding
- Forget the clothes…I am fascinated by the Fall 2017 Fashion atmosphere and sets
- A list of the best movies from 2016 (some nominated tonight) to add to your Netflix/Hulu/Amazon queue (and Vanity Fair’s Oscar Ballot if you want to see how well you can predict tonight’s winners)
Hope your next week is award worthy…
