Its the Oscars countdown!!! MY FAVOURITE AWARDS CEREMONY ever, oh the glitz, the glam, the red carpet to end all red carpets, the fashion disasters, the ridiculous speeches (which this year the producer has threatened to cut extremely, and broadcast backstage via the web, ugh party pooper!). Standard procedure next sunday night will be firing up the Ichat with @thegiftd in NYC, discussing the trans-atlantic syncing issues with the E! channel, making sure im locked onto a working TV stream for the main show (the BBC no longer broadcasting the awards is a travesty and frankly not what i pay my license fee for), loading up the Oscar twitter feed (via E! or Oscar.com) and sitting back fingers poised to bitch my way through the ceremony, PERFECT! Preparation is simple watch all movies up for awards, including the shorts/animations and docs….routing for Rabbit A La Berlin for the latter this year obviously.  I began familiarizing myself last night and watched Nine ( Original Song, Art Direction, Costume, Supporting Actress) & The Messenger which sees Woody Harrelson nominated for Best supporting Actor, no nomination though for my long time obsession and much deserved Ben Foster…

In fact its a bit of a shocker, i personally think his performance as Will Montgomery in The Messenger is his best yet, is also amazing in fact the whole film, apart from the rather flat ending was a really good watch, alot better than than Samantha MortonNine which left me with alot of questions mostly about Daniel Day Lewis’s Italian accent and Fergies wig/weave/extensions?/general appearance. Even though the black and white beach scenes were bella totally italian film noir and Judy Denchs’ french performance was an ill directed watch but non the less anthem,  i do feel as though i wasted 2 hours of my life waiting for an obvious conclusion. Thankfully i watched Nine first  so it was fortunately forgotten by the time Mr Foster graced my screen. Ben you might not be up for an award this year but i will definitely give you your just deserves if i ever see you in ze flesh – ehem, by that i mean a drink, gushing flattery and a pat on the back ‘you is a dam fine actor!’. Blown away by him in Alpha Dog he out acted every one in that film, transformed in 3:10 to Yuma (a fav cowboy film merely because of the actors!), 30 days of night, Phone Booth (ha ha i see you every where Ben), X-Men etc, etc. Ben for president…lol ok maybe not but at least an Oscar in the future and my future husband?
