The 86th Academy Awards

For longtime readers of this blog, you’ll know that I make my picks every year and match ‘em up with how I did against the actual winners. Normally I would have done two separate posts – one earlier on with my picks, and then the one with the winners. This year, the days and weeks […]

The 56th Grammy Awards

I don’t usually post about the Grammys since the past few years I’ve felt very out of touch with the catchy big hits. However, this year there have been a ton of songs that I’ve loved and happen to be nominated and/or performances at the awards so while I didn’t pre-post my choices, I have […]

The 71st Golden Globe Awards

I was totally behind on posting my picks this year, having only shared them a few days ago, but here is the recap/thoughts/results of this year’s Golden Globe Awards. Amy & Tina killed it again in the opener. Last year, their best zinger was probably at James Cameron. This year’s was probably the one at […]

The 71st Golden Globe Nominees

I do these every year with the big awards shows and completely forgot to make my picks this year until I saw the commercials with Tina & Amy for this Sunday’s broadcast of the Golden Globes! Better late than never… and I definitely want to make my picks prior to the show (obviously). UNDERLINE = WANT […]

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards

This seemed to be the year that not all the “obvious” sure-bet choices won – which is amazingly awesome. Plus with Neil Patrick Harris hosting? Doubley awesome. Even NPH made a joke about everyone losing their Emmy pools this year with how unpredictable it’s been. The opening was pretty subdued, mildly funny but it also showed […]

65th Primetime Emmy Award Nominations

As I’ve done in previous years, when the nominees come out for various award shows I’ll share the nominees list and make my picks on who I want to win and who I think will win. I used to do the full list, but last year I started only including the main ones or the […]

The 85th Academy Awards

As I usually do, I’ve taken my nominees selection post from January and, while watching the Oscars, have seen how I fared with my picks of who I wanted to win vs who I thought would win. I missed the beginning of the show though, as I was just getting home from being out of […]

How handy! The Oscars website has a section where you can lock in your predictions of who’s going to win! Let’s hope the site & mobile app can hold up to all the traffic it’ll get the night of the awards on February 24th. Years past, I’m pretty sure there were a lot of frustrated […]

The 70th Golden Globe Awards

I don’t often watch the pre-show red carpet specials, and I remember why now.. I had watched the E! one in the past and got so irritated by the correspondents, and then watching NBC’s coverage last night, the audio wasn’t very well mixed so there was more bleacher-people-screaming than actual interview questions being heard. I’ve […]

The 70th Golden Globe Award Nominations

Wow, I don’t know where my head’s been lately. I always post my picks for the award show nominations and it wasn’t until I saw Jenn’s post over on Writer’s Block did it remind me I hadn’t done mine yet!! UNDERLINE = who I WANT to win | ITALICS = who I THINK will win Okay, so I […]

The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards

Hurray! One of the few awards shows that I enjoy watching.. mostly because I’ve seen way too much TV and not enough movies, so Oscars are not as interesting for me. As I had posted my nominees pick back in July, I’m back with the winners – and to see how I did with my […]

64th Primetime Emmy Award Nominations

As I do every year when the nominations are announced for awards shows, I share with you the nominees and my picks. This morning, the Emmy nominations were announced and since this awards show is one of my favourites (mostly because I watch a lot more TV than I do movies!), I’d love to share […]

The 84th Academy Awards Oscar Winners

As I usually do on the blog, I previously posted the nominees & my picks – and now the day after the awards, I’ll do a recap to see how well (or poorly) I did! How did you fare? I always love the opening montage of movies.. segue from The Help to Bridesmaids was hilarious. […]

The 84th Academy Awards Nominees

The announcement yesterday morning of the nominations for the 84th Academy Awards yesterday were apparently met with some “controversy” along with the excitement. I heard about the outrage that Ryan Gosling was snubbed, and the shock that Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close would be nominated for Best Picture, when it didn’t do so well with critics […]
