Oscars 2018: And the nominees are…

News

The battle is on for Hollywood’s most coveted awards. After weeks of predictions, the Academy has finally unveiled the list of nominees who will fight for glory at the Oscars on March 4th. This year’s diverse nominations and wins during awards season gave room for debate on who would claim a spot in the final roster – except for a few exceptions: Would Greta Gerwig become the fifth woman nominated for Best Director after her snub at the Golden Globes? Would the Academy embrace Jordan Peele’s horror movie Get Out? Would the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement affect this year’s nominations? These questions have been answered and it turns out the 7.258 Academy voters had an ace up their sleeves, with surprising nominees and snubs.

Happy Birthday Helen Mirren!

And today really is a special occasion because it’s my second favourite actress (and idol)’s birthday. Well, in case you haven’t read the title of this entry it’s Helen Mirren’s 70th birthday: HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE, SHE IS JUST SO PRETTY AND YOUNG SHE CAN’T POSSIBLY BE 70 (and the fact she’s the face of L’Oréal sort of proves she is still incredibly young). Anyway, I think it’s the 3rd entry I write about (something related to) Helen Mirren (the other two being a review on The Queen and another review on Love Ranch), so today’s article has to be different…because really, it’s Helen’s birthday and she deserves a great entry…
