I’m not a big music fan, so can’t really comment on the winners for the 45th Annual Grammy Awards. Before last night, I didn’t even know who Norah Jones was. I just watched video clip of her singing “Coming Away With Me.” Not bad!
But I love going to the movies. So between now and when the 75th Annual Academy Awards airs, I’m going to try and see most if not all the movies that got nominated in the major categories (best picture, director, actor, actress, supporting actor, supporting actress). It may seem like a tall order but I’ve seen quite a few already. These include: About Schmidt, Adaptation, Road to Perdition, Chicago, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. So in 26 days, I hope to see 9 movies which include: The Pianist, The Quiet American, Gangs of New York, The Hours, Catch Me If You Can, Frida, Unfaithful, Far From Heaven, and Talk to Her. Hopefully, these are all still out in the theatres or at least available on VHS. Thankfully, I still have quite a few movie passes that I got at Christmas so this project shouldn’t be too hard on my wallet.

Sure! We can plan something for second weekend in March.

The Hours was wonderful. Not as good as the book, but still wonderful. Don’t watch it on a night you’re feeling particularly alone though.
Two Towers was magnificent. I felt like a typical theatregoer – or perhaps an ideal one – I was constantly surprised and awed by the movie and frequently found myself with my mouth hanging open.

Can I go? 🙂 I want to catch up on my oscar nominees as well…particularly About Schmidt and The Hours (I’m in the middle of the book).
We might even be able to drag my infamous kissing boyfriend along with us now that we won’t be going to our usual casino so much… 🙂
