The Oscars!

Hey Everyone!

Happy Oscar week! As some of you pointed out on the last topic, the WGA Strike is indeed over and it looks like the entertainment industry is revving back up to business as usual. That means that there will indeed be a full blown Oscar gala broadcast on Sunday. This Oscar event is especially exciting for me because two of my friends are nominated for Oscars:
Karen Baker-Landers - Nominated for Sound Editing
The Bourne Ultimatum
Scott Millan - Nominated for Sound Mixing
The Bourne Ultimatum

Both Karen and Scott donated their amazing talent to the production of the trailer for my project "Between the Sand & the Sky". I'm so pleased to see they are being recognized for their work. Not only are they consumate professionals, but also remarkably nice people!
SEE!?!?!? All Things really are Possible!

    Hi Chris and forum family...

    Since I just noticed the new topic, thought I'd post that this is International Friendship Week...and a chance to tell you all how much I appreciate my international friends on this forum. And thinking how wonderful it would be to meet you all one day. ATP...right, Chris?

    And since it is a week focusing on friends, this is great that you are highlighting two of your friends. And we'll all be cheering on Sunday. Will you be there? Inqiring forum minds want to know!

    Dave, we saw a local production of "I Hate Hamlet" over the weekend. Cute and entertaining. Wondered what your take on that play might be...

    Wishing everyone all things beautiful and possible in all your friendships this week! Sue

    Hi Sue, Chris, and everyone else,
    Sorry I've been away for a little bit - I was unfortunately sick for several days about two weeks ago and most recently I've been out of town and business and just now have had a chance to check in.

    I've never paid too much attention to the technical awards before, but will be paying attention now. I guess it's always more interesting when you know of someone who is up for the award, or as in this case, know someone who knows someone! I'll be interested in seeing how the Academy votes on the "top" awards this year - I never seem to predict the "best picture" of the year but my guess is still going to be "No Country for Old Men." We shall see.

    Sue, I've never seen or read "I Hate Hamlet" so I can't offer my opinion, sorry. I've only heard good things about it from those who have seen it though.

    Happy friendship week - though it's about over - I hope all is well with my friends from this forum!

    Hi dear forum family!

    Are you excited yet for the Oscar's? I am glad I am not in the jury this year, a lot of tough choices to make! And I am also glad "Sweeney Todd" is nominated, I saw it yesterday and thought it was amazing in all respects and not quite as gruelling as I expected, though it's probably not a film everyone would enjoy.

    Chris, I'll keep my fingers crossed for your friends. I loved the Bourne Ultimatum!

    Dave, sorry to hear you have been ill. Hope all is well again now. Here a lot of people are ill, due to the weather changing from cold to warm to cold. Yesterday was the first time this winter I went with a jacket and not my warm coat.

    Sue, thanks for telling us about friendship week, though I think friendship is something that should be celebrated every day!

    On that note, big warm hugs to you all, have fun tonight and a great new week ahead.

    Forgot something:

    I read recently that Germany's cinemas were very happy with the number of customers in January. The article that the numbers usually drop after Christmas but this year they have stayed high which they attributed to the even mix of different topics the movies cover right now. I know a while back we talked about that numbers were dwindling, so I thought I let you know. Does anyone know if it is the same elsewhere?

    Enjoy the show tonight everyone...and thanks Dave and Ute for the posts about friendship. It's been a joy getting to know all of you through the forum and fun discussing our favorite things. Movies for one. And oh, maybe...the weather? Beautiful here today. Lulled into thinking spring. Ha. Weather alert again for storm for us Dave...maybe Tim. More snow. Glad you're feeling better Dave. I agree with Ute, the back and forth temps this winter are a challenge. Helps keep you inside watching movies. Know this is a couple of years old, but we saw The Greatest Game Ever Played and enjoyed it and the way it was put together very much. Well, a golf movie helps think spring. And it's another great underdog story. Inspiring.

    Thanks for the Sweeney Todd tip Ute...maybe I'll like it after all. We did enjoy the Bourne Ultimatum and will have to see it again and pay attention to the sound. Best wishes to Karen and Scott. I see a big batch of spring movies are coming to keep us going after Oscar night! Looking forward to hearing about those.

    Keep well everyone...Sue
