3rd Annual Oscar Superlatives

Last night the 88th Annual Academy Awards took place…annnnnnd there’s nothing that remarkable to report. As per every year I made a point of watching all the nominated movies in the best picture, acting, and directing categories to prepare myself for Oscar night, and just like every year I realize that my tastes strongly differ from the old, white man opinions that represent the Academy. Typically I’m abuzz with excitement for the Oscars, and my brain is whirring whilst I watch, creating quips that I can remark on the following day, but this year was especially lacklustre. I felt that many of the nominees were nothing special, that a good handful of the winners were undeserving of such profound recognition and that the show itself was quite devoid of personality. However – my Oscar superlatives have become somewhat of a tradition, so I shall put my wit and observational skills to the test, and produce my own compilation of ‘Best Of’s. Continue reading

OSCARS 2014

After weeks of being a couch potato and committing wholeheartedly to watching a very long list of films – OSCAR NIGHT HAS ARRRRRRIVED!

But for true fashionistas who know their stuff, The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala OR put more simply, the Met Ball, is the crown jewel of such events. Continue reading

As a self-proclaimed cinephile and lover of fashion, awards season is like my Super Bowl. It combines three of my beloved passions: film, fashion, and fawning over celebrities. The red carpet offers the perfect opportunity for myself and like-minded individuals to look in on these glamorous occasions.

It’s easy to grow tired year after year, as each couch potato hour is logged viewing these broadcasts, most especially when the stars don’t shine quite as brightly as they could (yes, I have high expectations). I would take a Björk swan moment over a glittery prom number any day. Continue reading
