Yup.  Although i can't complain - last year was the first time in years and years that i went out and saw much of anything.  And everything i saw was good in its own way.  i plan to keep up the good work this year, but probably shouldn't count Green Book since that was really a last year's movie.

did you see it? was it Oscar worthy?  

i did not see the Oscars last night  :nosee: but kept checking who won this or that :slam:  while I watched a Miss Marple mystery  :angel:  

after the fact have been looking  at the Cooper/Gaga duet. quite a few times :angel:  it is shown like a mini-movie :shock:  it is brilliant as such.

apart from the stars,  :sing2:and piano   :keys:  , has great guitar  :guitar::oh:

no, I haven't seen it yet.

yes, the Cooper/Gaga song is quite beautiful, and the clip is, too. Definitely a movie I need to watch. I have grown quite fond of Lady Gaga as an actress; she's got a good kind of face, not that plastic one so many actresses have these days.

(I have been watching "Blacklist" on Netflix lately, with James Spader quite brilliant as criminal master mind and a young actress as his FBI counterpart (and, I guess as they are only hinting, her father) - and she is so overly made-up and coiffed, it really gets on my nerves. No FBI field agent looks like she is about to dress in a robe and go tot he opera. It's a weird thing many american series and movies, do - overdo, actually.)

The one thing I loved to see from the Oscar's (didn't watch, its middle of the night here) is that Olivia Colman won hers for The Favourite. That movie I actually did see, and she was wonderful in it. She is wonderful in every single thing I have seen her in, and another of my favourite actresses handed her the Golden Man - Frances McDormand.

And Colman's acceptance speech was so delightful - she was so completely overwhelmed. :lol:

Those subtitles in the middle of the screen are really stupid. :grumpy: I just read that Bradley Cooper said that he had a death wish after agreeing to sing live at the Oscar's :lol: 

 

Now I'm putting up the trailer. :p

The ridiculous hair and makeup thingee is one of my pet peeves, too - of COURSE no self respecting FBI field agent or police officer, either, would be wasting their time with high maintenance hair :roll:  I didn't see The Favorite, and probably won't since i still despise the House of Hanover (even though the Stewarts weren't the smartest of rulers), but, yes it was VERY obvious that Olivia Colman had really, seriously NOT expected to win.  Green Book was very, very good, well made and superbly acted, and with a message that is still timely, and a positive ending.  Of the ones i saw, i would actually have given the Oscar to Black Panther, since that pulled off the feat of making a really GOOD movie from the comic books. And i would have given number two to BlackKlansman, with Green Book as number three.  d

i really, REALLY like what I've seen of Gaga as an actress as well as a singer :oh:

I think the problem was that he had to sing solo first :duck: 

 

I realise that I haven't seen (or heard) Bradley Cooper in anything at all so far. :lol:

If my niece hadn't towed me to the Hamburg Film Fest a few months ago, I wouldn't have seen anything at all, I guess, unless it was so old it was on DVD or Netflix …

:roflmao: that was pretty clear from the previews, still . . .

Wee Scots hold grudges a looooooooooooooong time - my dad said my grandparents still fought about which clan hadn't fully supported the Bonny Prince in the 1745 debacle.  That would have been in the 1930's,
