Oh yes, it’s that time of the year again, it’s the end of February and it’s time to put on your finest and go to the party of the year! Well, if you’ve been nominated that is. Otherwise, you’ll do what I do and sit in your pajamas all night long looking at what I consider to be the best TV show of the year. I’ve seen the Oscars live since I was 14 I think and yes there have been some sleepy Mondays afterward. (In Sweden, we see the show live from about 2AM-6AM)
During the latter years a French friend of mine has been joining me over Skype and it hasn’t been quite as lonesome anymore. It has become our little tradition.
I realized I hadn’t really seen that many (non actually) of the nominated films when I printed the nominee list earlier this week so I knew I had to get cracking!
This week I’ve managed to see these;
- Les Misérables
- Silver Linings Playbook
- The Impossible
- The Pirates!
- Wreck-It Ralph
- Adam and Dog
- Fresh Guacamole
- Head over Heels
Still got these left
- Beasts of the Southern Wild
- Life of Pi
- Zero Dark Thirty
- The Master
- The Sessions
- A Royal Affair
- Maggie Simpson in ”The longest Daycare”
Wish me luck ;)
But now, on to the more important stuff! A mini dessert table, Oscar style!
Perhaps it will inspire you to throw your very own Oscar party!
Popcorn, stars, Oscar statuettes, clapperboard and some Walk of Fame cookies.
I found the template for the oscar statuette right here;
