27 Days of Oscar: Day 24, I'm back....
"We are the ones suffering the most from art." (Cutie and the Boxer) Wow...isn't that the truth sometimes.
I am sitting here watching "Frozen" for the second time, although I have so many more movies to watch before the Oscars. Sure. There are only 10 features and 13 shorts. But the time for procrastinating is done.
*Update....I wrote that paragraph 2 days ago.
This has been a very wild and tumultuous season for me...and the end of it is becoming completely insane. Right now my only job is writing about the Oscars. And the "mean girl" in me wants to tell you all about it, but I will keep it to myself. For now. Although I am only focusing on the Oscars in terms of work, I am also moving. Not quite against my will, but feeling a bit like that the past few days. Again...keeping my inner Regina George in check. There is much packing to be done, but I have all the screeners and vimeo links I need to finish this battle and actually come up with a strong set of predictions.
I will somehow get my top 10 scenes of 2013 up on Saturday although I'm not exactly sure how since I'm moving that morning and having drinks with fellow Oscar bloggers Craig Kennedy and Michelle McCue.
I also need to get my predictions up on Saturday or Sunday morning as well as move. I know, I already brought it up, but it is worth repeating. But no worries, dear readers, I have never failed when it comes to the Oscars, and will not this time.
I wanted to say that I'm incredibly grateful for the hard work Rick has put into Awards Wiz. It was my goal last year to turn the site over to him eventually, although I didn't necessarily mean for it to happen this year. Anyway, here is the list.
