And The Oscar Goes To...

nullnullnullnullnull

Good morning, loves! And happy Friday! What do you all have on tap this weekend? Oscar parties anyone? Can't wait to get all glammed up to watch the show with our friends on Sunday night. Oh and of course I can't wait to see the arrivals. That's really my favorite part. :)

Before then, I'll be on overdrive trying to see all of the Oscar best picture nominees before the awards. Unfortunately our big pact/challenge might not be achieved. Despite having carefully planned it all out {and I'm talking seriously planning. A calendar and chart to coordinate the schedules of 4 participants}, we still haven't seen them all.

Some movies went out of theaters or were playing at inconvenient times {yes War Horse I'm talking about you. Only 12pm & 3pm showtimes during the work week? Don't people have jobs???} So we'll see how it goes. I'm going to do my best to try to squeeze in the remaining three before the show.

Here's how things stand as of now:

Best Picture Movies Seen
The Artist
The Descendants
Midnight in Paris
The Help
The Tree of Life
Moneyball
{Also saw My Week With Marilyn, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo & Bridesmaids which have nominess up for Actress in a Leading Role and Actress in a Supporting Role.}

Best Picture Movies Yet to See
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
Hugo
War Horse

It's a pretty big challenge since I'm busy tonight, tomorrow during the day and tomorrow evening. So that only leaves Sunday day. Not looking promising but wish me luck! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Is anyone else going to be glued to the television like me?

xoxo

I hope you get it all in there, it is a lot, but just do your best! The screening times do seema bit off, I would think people would be working at that time too. It will be fun anyhow and exciting when the awards begin, I like seeing thrm come in too!! Have fun and enjoy!! xoxo

Katie said...

I think I want to see Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close but I'm waiting to read the book first :)

O said...

You're almost there! Hope you can squeeze them on Sunday! Have fun watching the Oscars, I am way behind on the movie list, so I'll just have catch up after (like when the dvd's are in store). Enjoy the weekend! xoxo

I look forward to the Oscars every year too. I love watching the Red Carpet (and E afterpary). Love to see who's wearing what, and hair & makeup, ect. You've done so well with watching the movies. I didn't see all of them either, but from what I did see I'm routing for the Help. I thought it was such a great movie. I'll be watching in my pj's on the couch. Hardly glamorous, but I'll pretend : ) Enjoy the party!!!

wow Dawn, you have done pretty well! Have a great one! Its too late for us here in the UK to watch but I cant wait for the recap on Monday

Debby said...

I saw The Descendants over the weekend and thought it was well acted but just sort of depressing in general. I don't know if it's just me, but I haven't seen a movie I really love in awhile. I think the quality of movies just isn't what it used to be. I like movies that stay with you after you leave the theatre but those are few and far between. I'm laughing because you will find any excuse to dress up!! Your friends sound fun. Wish I were there. xo

With love... said...

Am so looking forward to Oscar night. Have a great weekend Dawn.

Enjoy, smile loads. xx

Maria @ Orchard Bloom said...

I don't even bother trying to watch them all before the oscars. I usually spend the rest of the year catching up.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

sharon vuitton said...

Good luck fitting it all in! Am so excited for the Oscars!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

I am completely in *love* with all these images with the black! Which is funny because I'm usually in a bright and bold mood...I must be all geared up for oscars, too (c: Good luck on your movie extravaganza...you'll have to tell me how extremely loud & incredibly close is, I've been meaning to see it!

LatteLisa LisaHjalt said...

three films until Sunday ... if anyone can pull it off it's you ;-) You go girl!

I'm so in the mood for a little Oscar glamour, I'll be staying up late on Sunday or just waking up very early ;-)

rolala said...

Enjoy the weekend and good luck finishing the film challenge. The Oscar arrivals are totally the best part!

Styleabaad said...

I know I can't wait either.. so excited... but I have to admit that I'm more curious about the red carpet than who actually wins :)

Have a great weekend!

no Oscar parties for me, but I will be watching! I especially love to see what everyone is wearing:-).

classiq said...

Looking forward to Sunday night. I'll have to wake up at 2 a.m. or simply make it a sleepless night and triple my coffee dose on Monday. It's the glamour I'm waiting for all year long. :) Have a fabulous weekend, Dawn, and I hope you get to see all three movies! xo

I haven't seen one in YEARS but I definitely love reading the recaps after. Makes for some awesome eye candy on Monday posts.

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

I can't wait for the red carpet (of course!) although I haven't seen all the movies and feel a bit guilty. I hope you get to squeeze in War Horse, which I haven't seen but wanted to, wasn't a huge fan of Extremely Loud..

p.s. that's so cool about the Kandinsky in your bedroom--I love when people have long-time favorite pieces of art, they mean so much!

Adele said...

Wow! You've done well with your challenge Dawn! I'm gutted I'm away for the Oscars, need to set my Sky+!!!

Such a fun challenge, Dawn! I loved loved Moneyball and still want to see The Help. I too can't wait to see the arrivals! I'm enjoying a relaxing weekend - doing as much of nothing as possible, since I have a very busy week coming up!

Enjoy the Oscar party - that sounds like toooo much fun! Really wish I lived closer to you! :)
