Tonight is the Oscars. I am so excited that every time I see something related to the Oscars on TV, I squeal, THE OSCARS ARE TONIGHT! I’m pretty sure my husband and my cats are ready to for that be over with soon.
So here’s a rundown of the Oscar nominated flicks I was able to see before the Big Dance.Gravity. I didn’t get to The Wolf of Wall Street, but I have a personal day tomorrow so I’ll be treating myself. Tonight I’ll be joining other local movie fans at Collins Road Theatre for their annual FREE Oscars bash which starts at 6 PM. Maybe I’ll see you there!

“It’s like I’m reading a book… and it’s a book I deeply love. But I’m reading it slowly now. So the words are really far apart and the spaces between the words are almost infinite. I can still feel you… and the words of our story… but it’s in this endless space between the words that I’m finding myself now. It’s a place that’s not of the physical world. It’s where everything else is that I didn’t even know existed. I love you so much. But this is where I am now. And this who I am now. And I need you to let me go. As much as I want to, I can’t live your book any more.” Samantha (Her)Share your Oscar picks in comments. Which Oscar nominees have you seen?
