I absolutely love this time of year. Yes, I love the spring, but what I mean is Academy Award season!
I like to go to movies on my date night with my husband, but I also am one of those people who doesn’t mind going to a movie by myself if it’s something I want to see and no one else has the time or desire to see it. I know some people get embarrassed or nervous to go to a movie by themselves. I say, go for it! Enjoy yourself and relish in the quiet time too.
What I’m really excited about this year is the list in the Best Leading Actress category. YEAH to the 3 out of 5 women who are nominated that are over 40! And two of them are in their 60’s! Maybe Hollywood will start to listen that not every movie depends on a 20 year old woman to make it a movie that people will see. It’s about talent, not tightness in the skin. Not that there’s anything wrong with 20 and 30 year old women, but seriously, we love women over 40’s in the movies!
So congratulations to Sandra, Helen and Meryl and let’s not forget Mo’ Nique in the Supporting Actress category as well. You are beautiful, talented women and thank you for showing Hollywood how it’s done!
