The Oscars although hailed as a celebration of cinema’s greatest talents, sometimes you can’t help but feeling they’re a bit unfair. A combination of hype, marketing and politics put some films way ahead of the game, leaving other strong contenders cruelly overlooked…
This year, ‘Avatar’ & ‘The Hurt Locker’ are in line to sweep the boards with nine nominations apiece, while ‘Up In The Air’ has six nominations & ‘An Education’ three, & yet other strong films from the past year have been completely disregarded.?
The posts that follow from this will be my personal opinion of movies that i thought deserved to be aknowledged or at the very least nominated for an Academy award…
“Happiness is a state of mind and, like all things, it takes practice. Devote five minutes a day to smiling, just smiling, and after a while it’ll come naturally.”—Love Happens (via kari-shma) (via quote-book) (via jalife)
“Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music— the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people.”—Henry Miller (via thresca) (via quote-book)
If you are going to fall in love with me, it’s only fair that you know what you are falling in love with.
You are falling in love with my insecurities, and my obsession with trying to figure out what everyone thinks of me. You are falling in love with my immaturity, my constant need to feel loved and appreciated, my overactive tear ducts, my internet obsession, my tendency to be too clingy. You fall in love with my troubled past, and my hopes and dreams, and how I’m a hopeless romantic at heart. If you fall in love with me, you fall in love with my self-hate and all my imperfections and my perception that nobody could ever love me.
But, you are also falling in love with the way my eyes will smile when I’m with you, the way I’ll text you in the mornings just telling you I hope you have a great day. You’re falling in love with the occasionally humorous and/or thought-provoking things I say, and the way I blush when people ask me about you. But to me, the most important thing will be that you are falling in love with me, despite my thinking that it is impossible.
