Post Oscars Withdrawl

Ever since awards season started I have been infatuated with Luptia Nyong'o and Jared Leto. First off, their performances in 12 Years A Slave and Dallas Buyers Club were flawless. It was exciting for me to watch their unique style all season. On top of that, they're just two ridiculously gorgeous people. And after their moving Oscar speeches, I've seen that their beauty shines inside and out. With all these rumors flying around that these two are an item, I honestly couldn't be more elated!

"When I look down at this statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you're from your dreams are valid."

What touched me most about her Oscar speech was the fact that her success stemmed from someone else's pain and that thought was at the forefront of her mind. She thanks the spirit of Patsey, her character in 12 Years A Slave. "It doesn't escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else's and so I want to salute the spirit of Patsey and thank her for her guidance." 12 Years A Slave was a difficult, but important film to watch. The academy got it right naming this film Best Picture of the Year.

“To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here and as you struggle to… to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible… We’re thinking of you tonight."

If you haven't seen Dallas Buyers Club, be sure to check it out! Jared Leto's performance was incredible and his Best Supporting Actor award was well deserved. His Oscar speech was so thoughtful and genuine. I've never been a big fan of his music or movies, but that's quickly changing! I'm sprung on you Jared Leto.

There's only 2 Oscar nominated films I have yet to watch, but I plan on catching up pretty soon. Who were your choices for best dressed at the Oscars this year? Favorite nominated films? I'm excited to see all the new movies 2014 will bring. This year's Oscar nominations were top notch, some of the best films I've seen in years. Bring it 2014.

  1. Lupita is just amazing.
    I haven't seen Dallas Buyers Club but keep hearing good things.

    1. I love Lupita. I admire all her grace and poise in the little time she's been in the limelight. Dallas Buyers Club is a must see! Matthew and Jared give stellar performances. Hope you get to see it soon!
