Thank-you all for sending in those awesome pictures from your travels! If you missed any of the pictures, just click on October in the Journal Archives for a bevy of wonderful pictures and stories.

Well here in Hollywood, November is traditionally the month where you pick out a turkey - and hopefully you didn't pick it at the theater, because, of course, it's Oscar Contender movie time again! (OK, stop laughing. It wasn't that funny.)

I'm way too sentimental about my favorite movies to pick actual Oscar winners anyway. I say if you're one to gamble, the smart money goes on Grommet from Curse of the Ware Rabbit as best mute dog in a supporting role. Any predictions?

    Personally, I won't be making any Oscar predictions this year - because I just didn't get to the movies very often! Other than the occasional "blockbuster" that I saw most of my movie viewing was done at home through the magic of DVD. Of course, it's probably not too late to make up for some lost time as it seems most of the Academy Award contenders are released this time of year. An recommendations?

    Haha! Very funny, Chris! Although, I have to admit it took me a minute to get this, but then, I am not a native speaker!

    Tough question, there were a lot of great movies this year and more are still to come. The upcoming "Chronicles of Narnia" and PJ's "King Kong" will surely get nominations at least, and another "Harry Potter" is coming out as well.
    For sets and special effects I would give awards to "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and to the young actors who portrayed the kids - they were phantastic portraying those horrible kids! BTW, if you saw the movie, please don't believe how they depicted Düsseldorf, it looks nothing like it here! We did have a good laugh about it, though!

    That's all I can think of right now. Actually, I am glad I am not on the jury, I would be far too biased! As always, we shall have to wait and see...

    Have a great day,
    Ute

    P.S. I would have loved to put "Sea of Fear" on that list but that still hasn't come out. Any news about that, Chris?

    Now is the time that all the studios release their not-so-big budget artistic actor-tour-de-force movies between now and January 1st to be considered for a 2005 Academy Award. I enjoyed a few movies that I have seen lately but unless Sea Of Fear is nominated for best unreleased film I'm not even going this year. I have only seen the trailer but I think King Kong is a shoe in for Most Bannanas conumed at the Craft Service Table (new category this year).

    I love the new "Most Bananas consumed at the Craft Service Table" category. ;) If that had already existed when "George of the Jungle II" came out I am sure you would have won that one, Chris!!!

    So, it looks like we have to buy a lot more tea, waiting for "Sea of Fear" to come out. (I don't know if you have that saying in English too, in Germany we say "To wait and see and drink tea" - well, that's liberally translated, but I think you will know what I mean).

    Have a good day!

    Hi, Chris,

    It's so wonderful to see how much the movie industry is impacting your life. I enjoyed browsing through the "Events", and seeing you with some fabulous people! Will Ferrell is one of my favorite actors! It's great to see how much your life has changed so quickly since your school days.

    I am back in our home state, and loving life in the "slow and easy" atmosphere of Michigan.

    Would love to catch up with you again via email, but unfortunately can't contact you through email. I'm sure you are very busy, so I guess your forum is the only way I have to contact you.

    I will keep popping in here to watch your career blossom, and continue praying for your current and future success.

    Update ~ my health has declined rapidly, and am headed to UofM hospital soon, and if they can't help, I'm off to Mayo. The end is drawing near if they can't find a cure for my disase. I have changed so much from when we were in school together, and unfortunately have had to slow the activities in my life down to the rate of a snail. I am praying for a cure, because there is so much that I want to do in my life. I'll use your motto here ~ All Things Possible! That's what I'm standing on.

    Would love to meet up for lunch or coffee sometime when you are back in the area.

    God's blessings to you,
    Casey Duncanson

    Yup Ute!! Time to stock up on the tea and wait impatiently at your local theater for Sea Of Fear premier. Thanks for asking.

    Hey Casey!! Sending you lots of hope and keep me posted on your health progress. You (everyone!) can always reach me through the CONTACT button at the bottom of this website. Those emails come directly to me. Keep your chin up!! Yes All Things Are Possible!

    ATP!
    Chris
