Hey there again! This week has lasted 5 years, so I am very thankful that Friday is here and the weekend begins soon. Today I am actually going to start with something that I’m NOT feeling. I think everyone will agree with this:
1. Leo still didn’t earn an Oscar! This year he was up for his performance in The Wolf of Wall Street. I haven’t seen the movie, but there hasn’t been a Leo role I didn’t like. He’s been nominated 5 times, and has not won any time! He was in two fantastic movies last year- Wolf of Wall Street and The Great Gatsby. Gatsby was one of the most gorgeous films I have ever seen. Everything was so fantastical and amazing. Love it. Here are the roles Leo has been nominated for:
1994: Nominated in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” for Best Actor in a Supporting Role
2005: Nominated in “The Aviator” for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role
2007: Nominated in “Blood Diamond” for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role
2014: Nominated in “The Wolf of Wall Street” for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role and Best Motion Picture of the Year
Now, I will admit that this year he was up against some great contenders (12 Years a Slave, Dallas Buyers Club, etc.). I totally think the winners deserved it. They definitely earned it. But, I’m thinking, this man has been nominated 5 times, FIVE times. Come on, you gotta give this guys an award! He really is my favorite actor, in my book he can do no wrong. I’m really just hoping he doesn’t give up and keeps creating top notch work. Love you Leo!
2. Greys and Scandal are back on! Whoop Whoop! April chose Jackson (there was really no competition there) and I am so excited to see how things play out with Sally Langston on Scandal! I’ve watched both of these shows since day one, and I’ve definitely invested some long hours into Greys. I’m sure Greys will be coming to a close within the next couple seasons, and I am okay with that. Its been a good ride and I would totally be okay if it finished.
3. Ender Game (the movie). I finally got around to watching Enders Game last weekend. Now, the storyline was altered from the book, but I think they did a decent job with their changes. This book isn’t as popular as Harry Potter or Hunger Games, so they needed to appeal to a wider audience that has never heard of the book before. I definitely miss some of the back story that they don’t add into the movie, and I didn’t like some of the things they added (a supposed romantic relationship between Ender and Petra), but overall it wasn’t as bad as I anticipated.
I’m excited for this weekend, just relaxing and catching up on some crafts.
