And The Oscars Goes To…

Marion Cotillard “La Vie En Rose”Special non-working holiday today for the celebration of the 22nd EDSA I People Power Revolution. So far, I am having a blast. I woke up around 9 A.M. and at once I switched my TV on and tuned in to VELVET channel to watch the 80th Annual Academy Awards. Since it was still the Red Carpet, I went outside to buy my breakfast. I had “taho” (soy with caramel and sago) and “hopiang baboy” (bread with pork filling).

Anyway, this is actually my first time to watch The Oscars Awards. I was really fascinated that it wasn’t boring at all. John Steward hosted the show and he did a brilliant job. He was witty and funny. At least he wasn’t over the top with his jokes.

There a lot of great movies nominated this year. I am intrigued with the movie, “La Vie En Rose.” I hope I could watch it soon. Moving along, I really enjoyed the musical performance of the movie, “Enchanted.” I was just disappointed that my favorite song of the movie, “So Close” did not win the Best Original Music. Sigh…

Here are the major winners of the 80th Annual Academy Awards:

Best Picture: No Country For Old Men
Best Achievement in Directing: “No Country For Old Men”
Best Original Screenplay: Diablo Cody “Juno”
Best Cinematography: There Will Be Blood
Best Actor By A Solo Performance: Daniel-Day Lewis “There Will Be Blood”
Best Actress By A Solo Performance: Marion Cotillard “La Vie En Rose”
Best Actor By A Supporting Role: Javier Bardem “No Country For Old Men”
Best Actress By A Supporting Role: Tilda Swinton “Michael Clayton”
