Happy Oscar Sunday! It has now been 18 years since I started my love affair with the golden statue. I love his movies and I love his fashion and I love his night! I managed to squeeze in all eight Best Picture nominations by midnight last night. I am not a movie critic so I know nothing other than what I respond to. So, here are my reactions to the movies: The Grand Budapest Hotel: quirky and fun. I wish I would have re-watched it again since I watched it so long ago. Boyhood: Impressive that everyone dedicated so many years to making this movie. Beyond that, I did identify with Patricia Arquette's role as she watches her son grow up and moves on. This is the chapter I am in with my own life. Other than that, do I dare say, I just thought it was okay. American Sniper: I love Clint Eastwood. I love Bradly Cooper. It was a good movie and I enjoyed it. Selma: I loved this movie. I did not really think about the controversy of nomination snubs until I watched this movie.
