The 2017 Oscars are almost here and I am so excited! It’s such a fun glamorous event, plus an excuse to celebrate. Who can believe we are celebrating the 89th annual? Also, one of my TV boyfriends, Jimmy Kimmel, is hosting so we all know that’s going to be a fun time.
Growing up I didn’t watch too much television (we weren’t allowed cable) but movies were an entirely different story. I fondly remember curling up in my parents’ bed, watching movie after movie. I love love LOVE movies.
Oscars 2017 Movie Predictions
I can’t wait to see the Oscar winners for 2017. I haven’t gotten to see as many of the nominated movies as I would have liked, but I have seen a handful and have been very impressed. While there were plenty of incredible (and very sad) ones, overall, La La Land remains top of mind. La La Land was one of those movies you continue to think about for days after you’ve seen it. I won’t give anything away, but… the end…!!! And if you weren’t already in love with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, you will be approximately one second into the movie.
The Arrival was also one of those special movies. It was a little strange, but very, very touching, especially with everything going on in the world today. Both Arrival and La La Land were very very different, yet there were overall similarities. I pondered how they both so beautifully showed the complexities of humans (and aliens) and how important it is to love one another. You never know where your life may take you, but be sure to love greatly and appreciate all of those moments with your loved ones. Okay…so into the fun stuff.
Hosting a 2017 Oscars Celebration Party
I feel everyone should have a special party for the Oscars. Even if “party” means a lot of pizza, wine, and friends.
Rules to having a memorable evening:
- 1. Don’t dare miss the Red Carpet beforehand, that’s one of the funnest parts! I can’t wait to see which ladies bring it!
- 2.Cast votes into which movie will win the most awards, and which actor/actresses will win the most.
- 3. Have a naughty treat, be it champagne or brownies. Or both 😉
- 4. Enjoy your loved ones and laugh the night away! Relax, you’re not the one in the limelight.
