So glad to see Thomas Sangster in Game of Thrones as Jojen Reed! Not only does this character have seriously interesting potential, but Sangster is a great young actor and can do awesome things with this character. Plus, he is very charming and attractive, which can’t hurt. :-)

This is wonderful. I have always felt I was Peter Pan at heart, and this picture makes my heart smile. :-)
Best moment at the Golden Globes by far! So funny! Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler present Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical.
A fresh and original take on Les Miserables.
For the first time in a while, I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed the Golden Globes.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were hilarious, and the presenting duo of Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig was brilliant.
Ben Affleck is such a classy guy and an entirely deserving director. Who would’ve thought?
Speaking of classy, Daniel Day-Lewis’s speech was funny, charming, and humble. He is the greatest actor of our time, and he doesn’t let that fact get to him. He is my favorite by far, and I hope he makes history by earning his 3rd Best Actor Oscar this year.
I am excited, because for once going into Oscar season, it seems the Oscars will be surprising and unexpected. The field is still wide open, and the movies nominated are mainly quite deserving. Many of those nominated made my “top 10” list.
Just in case any of you are curious:
I would even give it 4 1/2, though I entirely agree with everything said. I truly breathtaking movie, and one that deserves every award it receives. I still can’t believe it didn’t get a nom for best original score. :-/ Oh well.
So I am actually pretty excited for the Oscars this year.
This year has seen many good films and, would you believe it, some of them were actually nominated! Who would’ve thought?
I must say that my biggest disappointment was Ben Affleck’s not receiving a Best Director nomination.
BUT, it goes hand-in-hand with my most exciting moment when I heard Benh Zeitlin nominated for Beasts of the Southern Wild (my favorite movie of the year). For a first-time director, that is pretty huge and very much deserved.
My second biggest disappointment was in Best Original Score, that neither Cloud Atlas nor Beasts of the Southern Wild received nominations. Seriously, go listen to them and tell me they don’t deserve it. Truly beautiful.
All in all, I am fairly pleased. Seeing Zero Dark Thirty tonight and Django Unchained tomorrow to finish up all of the films nominated for awards. Can’t wait!
Who shall win?
